Farm Water Availability
In Haridwar district, both surface and subsurface sources of water are utilized for irrigation purposes. Farmers, as well as government agencies, have constructed canals and guls from perennial rivers, springs, seasonal rivulets, and gadheras. The canals in the district run for a length of 9,575 km and are a major source of surface water for irrigation, along with rivers, streams, irrigation ditches, and impounded water such as ponds, reservoirs, and lakes. Groundwater from wells is also a significant source of water for agriculture in Haridwar. Additionally, locally collected rainwater in cisterns and rain barrels is utilized to enhance crop production.
Nature of Farmers
Farmers in the Haridwar region are known for their hardworking and cooperative nature, and they often help each other when needed. In the past, farmers did not hire labor for agricultural work because they lived in joint families with many members who could perform the work. However, in modern times, with the decline in joint families, most farmers hire labor for agricultural work. Farmers are also interested in learning new techniques and are inclined towards organic farming. They are open to adopting new techniques, such as the System of Rice Intensification (SRI), homemade inputs like composts, bio-pesticides, and liquid manures, to improve their crop production.
The agro-climatic conditions in Haridwar are suitable for the cultivation of most Kharif and Rabi crops. The region experiences a humid and sub-humid climate, with three distinct crop seasons. The annual rainfall in Haridwar is predominantly received during the Kharif season (84%), while the Rabi and Zaid seasons receive only 16% of the rainfall. The topography of the district is variable, with the Shiwalik range (869 m) located in the north and plain land (232 m) present in the south.
Laksar in Haridwar is known for its diverse agriculture and cultivation of various crops. The fertile soil, favorable agro-climatic conditions, and availability of both surface and groundwater make Laksar an ideal place for agriculture.

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.
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.
