It’s been four months now since COVID has arrived. We wish you all good health. Following is the progress of SRT in the past four months.
To reach farmers and handhold them we have started Virtual Video Conferences/Webinars with the help of Kisan Forum Pune. In the last three months we successfully organised a total 20 Webinars and 2 Facebook live sessions. We got a good number of participation in each webinar.
All webinars and facebook live sessions we will upload soon on our Youtube channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/SRTSagunaRiceTechnique). Some of them have already been uploaded. Following are the links :
Without physically reaching the farmer’s fields the technique has provided great results. We were able to motivate more than 350 farmers to actually start SRT in their farms spread over six agro-climatic zones. We think this is the biggest achievement of SRT on the baseline of previous efforts.
