The awareness and exposure exercises were instantly followed by grounding and establishing pilot demonstration plots at the participating household farms. These pilots served as training grounds of appropriate natural farming technologies with the objective of enhancing the hands-on-skills to adopt and replicate the new farming techniques.

Enabling factors

Lessons learned

 

In addition to these newly learned techniques, the series of awareness and training programs and exposure visits have aided them in developing confidence in this indigenous farming practice. ​
