This project has been beneficial to the farmers in improving soil nutrients condition and pollution status. It has also reduced the use of fertilizers, fossil fuels, and firewood. Farmers have adopted the new methods of mushroom cultivation, installation, and maintenance of biogas units and bio-composting. It has also helped in the decision-making, marketing, and team-building process.
We hope new methods like this will be introduced to support farmers and reduce climate change and pollution problems.
