Activities of the UNVDA:

Activities aimed at increasing production and productivity in the area:

Seed Multiplication: Every year, we produce and distribute tons of improved rice seeds to our contact farmers. We also train farmers in seed selection techniques and a good number are now producing good quality seeds for their own use and for distribution to other farmers.

 Agricultural Extension: UNVDA assists the farmers of the area in the use of improved farming techniques through the provision of extension services especially in the domain of rice cultivation. Our frontline extension workers shall live with, and advice the farmers on a daily basis.

Development/maintenance of Paddy Fields: Over the years, UNVDA has used its equipment pool to develop and maintain about 2500ha of paddy fields, which are now being used by farmers for irrigated paddy production. We also assist the farmers in the maintenance of this land by rebuilding flattened contour bunds.
