Most of our farmers are from remote areas of India. Before working with Organic Roots, they didn’t have market access for cash crops and were producing grains only for their own consumption. Some farmers had access to vast stretches of community land, but lacked the means to till them. This resulted in poor yields and a loss of production opportunity. We provided them a market for various cash crops and also supplied seeds and knowledge to improve their crops. This gave the farmers an opportunity to start farming commercially and earn an income for their livelihood.
