Farm Water Availability
The availability of water for agricultural purposes is a critical factor in the North Bihar region, where Muzaffarpur is located. The area is predominantly rural and dependent on agriculture, making access to water a vital resource for farmers. The region is primarily irrigated by the Burhi Gandak River, which flows through Muzaffarpur and provides a significant source of water for agricultural use. However, due to climate change and water mismanagement, the availability of water has become a growing concern in recent years. To address this issue, the government, NBF and other organizations have launched initiatives to promote sustainable water management practices and improve the availability of water for agriculture in the region.
Nature of Farmers
The Muzaffarpur district and surrounding areas are largely agricultural in nature, with farming being the primary occupation for a majority of the population. However, the nature of farming in this region is characterized by a large number of marginal farmers. These farmers own small plots of land, typically less than two hectares, and often face various challenges such as lack of access to credit, technology, and irrigation facilities. The region is known for its production of litchis, sugarcane, and various vegetables, which are grown by both small-scale and large-scale farmers. Despite the challenges faced by marginal farmers, agriculture remains a crucial source of livelihood and income for many people in this region.

Impact of our Farmers
The impact of our farmers is significant in enhancing soil fertility through various methods such as crop rotation, cover cropping, reduced tillage, and application of compost. These practices reduce fuel-intensive tillage, resulting in carbon sequestration, decreasing greenhouse gases, and reversing climate change. In addition, they can improve soil structure and reduce the possibility of soil erosion.
Difference our People are Making
The difference our organization is making is by converting land from conventional management to organic management, managing the entire surrounding system for biodiversity and sustainability, and using alternative sources of nutrients such as crop rotation, residue management, and organic manures.
