Dang is the most distress area for agricultural production and water availability. As a part of CSR initiative we are working in 10 villages of Dang to improve agricultural production of small and marginal farmers by providing them sustainable agriculture solutions.
Many stakeholders including Government, NGO etc have developed many water harvesting structures for farmers of Dang. We have observed some structures are in very poor condition because of construction quality and time. They urgently need repairing and maintenance work for extending the life of structures.
We have initiated repairing of checkdam at Kutarnachya and Gavariya village. We have done field survey of existing structure along with good interaction with nearby farmers. We have noted down all the measurements of existing structures, identified scope of work by discussing with villagers
