ZUG - C&A Foundation and WWF India are working together on an initiative which aims to see 6,000 farmers in the Satpuda-Pench corridor of Central India gain organic certification. The programme will focus on developing farmer skills in organic cotton growth as well as nature conservation, with the Satpuda-Pench corridor of Central India being adjacent to the Pench Tiger Reserve. Farmer training has already started, with farmers learning how to build the fertility of soil to increase yields, and make natural plant pesticides and compost. The aim is to reduce the financial burden on farmers, improve farmer livelihoods and create incentives for farmers to practice sustainable agriculture and minimise the sale of land to other industries such as mining or for commercial development.
