    Training and technical assistance was provided to women's groups to both build and manage the poultry-litter based bio-gas plants. Some of the direct benefits derived by women from biogas comprise smoke-free cooking fuel, reduced drudgery and time spent in the collection of firewood, improved vegetable yields within the homestead area and in agricultural fields due to the use of slurry obtained as a by-product.

    Gabion structures along with stone bunds also helped in checking soil erosion and in improving moisture conservation. Due to an increase in water recharge, farmers have started cultivating vegetable crops and fruit species, in addition to fodder. These changes were brought about through the active involvement of community members in Gudha Gokulpura and neighbouring hamlets. Read more...

    Vaata is a traditional system of sharing and building livestock assets among tribal communities in the East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. Individual women members of Gottis were given a few Aseel hens. Recipients returned half the chicks produced by the hens which were redistributed free or sold, and the savings were accumulated in the Gotti accounts. The women were also trained to use simple herbal remedies. Read more...

    The Kadaknath poultry rearing unit emerged as a good source of income for Keena, a resident of Mendal village in the Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh.

    In Bhutan, willow is one of the most important tree fodder species. It produces suitable biomass for silage making. Pits are dug to facilitate easy compaction of twigs and leafy material, and to ensure minimum aeration. The harvested willow twigs and leaves are evenly laid in the pit above a spread of thick polythene sheet to protect the ensiled material from moisture and air. The material is arranged and pressed manually. Read more...
