The region boasts unique physical characteristics and abundant natural resources.
Bordered by the small Himalaya to the north, the Shivalik hills to the south, the Ganga River to the east, and the Yamuna River to the west, Doon Valley benefits from a favorable climate that can be enjoyed throughout the year. The topography of Dehradun, located at an elevation of 3350 meters, is characterized by cascading rivers, verdant forests, and captivating valleys, earning it the title of “heaven on Earth” due to its breathtaking beauty.

Farm Water Availability
Farmers in District Dehradun have access to both surface and subsurface sources of water for irrigation purposes. Perennial rivers, springs, seasonal rivulets, and gadheras provide the source for constructing canals and guls. The district has four main canal systems, namely Bijapur, Rajpur, Kalanga, and Jakhan, with a combined length of 786 km. The canals were developed during the British period and are currently maintained by the state irrigation department. Subsurface water is accessed through tube wells, with 118 functional irrigation tube wells in the district as of 31.3.2009. Other irrigation practices include pump sets, hydrum, hauz, tanks, etc.
Nature of Farmers
The farmers in the region are hardworking, cooperative and readily offer assistance to each other. The traditional practice of exchanging labor among farmers for agricultural work still exists in some villages, particularly those with a Garhwali population. Farmers are interested in adopting new techniques, particularly those related to organic farming, and are quick to learn new methods such as System of Rice Intensification (SRI) and using homemade inputs like composts, biopesticides, and liquid manures.
The growing conditions in the Doon Valley are ideal for most Kharif and Rabi crops, particularly Dehradun Basmati and Rajma. The favorable environment enhances the aroma and taste of Dehradun Basmati, making it popular worldwide. The region receives above-normal rainfall of up to 2000mm per year. Irrigation is prevalent in the low-lying areas, while rainfed agriculture is common in the higher elevations of the valley.

Impact of our Farmers
Farmers employ various methods to enhance soil fertility, such as crop rotation, cover cropping, reduced tillage, and application of compost. By reducing fuel-intensive tillage, less soil organic matter is lost to the atmosphere, leading to carbon sequestration. This reduces greenhouse gases and helps to reverse climate change. Moreover, reduced tillage can improve soil structure and decrease the possibility of soil erosion.
The difference our People are Making
Our organization uses several processes such as converting land from conventional management to organic management, managing the entire surrounding system to ensure biodiversity and sustainability, and crop production with the use of alternative sources of nutrients such as crop rotation, residue management, and organic manures. We provide complete biological inputs to our crops.
We also manage weeds and pests through better management practices, physical and cultural means, and our teams supervise and manage these activities. This approach makes us an integral contributor to the cause of sustainability.
