Launched across different agro-ecologies of the country, the pilots will generate integrated field experiences in soil, seeds, water, millet-based crop systems, fisheries, livestock and credit, markets and institutions. These experiences will help us develop solutions to improve rainfed livelihoods and nutrition and help farmers better mitigate risk, through a first-hand assessment of the ground situation.
The Revitalising Rainfed Agriculture Network (RRA Network) advocates for a differentiated policy and support system for rainfed agriculture in India.
