Sustainable Agriculture
Throughout the last decade, the Janhit Foundation has promoted organic agriculture as a viable and sustainable alternative to conventional farming practises.
Toxic agrochemicals are heavily used in conventional agriculture, and they enter the food chain, seep into water sources, injure cattle and wildlife, deplete the soil, disrupt natural ecosystems, and contaminate the agricultural crop for which they were originally introduced.
Agriculture
Organic farming practises improve soil quality year after year, resulting in more fruitful land. This improves the farmer's long-term yield, nutrient value, and potency of their crops.
We work with small, marginalised farmers all throughout the region to help them increase their revenue by lowering input costs and switching to organic farming. Because sugarcane is the primary crop grown in Western Uttar Pradesh, we've worked closely with sugarcane farmers to encourage them to use fewer toxic Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) and to provide them with innovative technologies and agricultural techniques to improve their crop and increase yield.
We have been encouraging farmers in the region to embrace organic and natural farming practises in order to protect the environment, soil quality, subsurface water quality, and the health of agricultural yield consumers. We work with around 2000 farmers in the district and have completed a number of initiatives with them.

Major Programs

1. From Seed to Market– This was a 3-year project supported by Ford Foundation which promoted organic farming among marginalized farmers selecting 400 farmers and providing them from seed to regular trainings to Compost Pits to Jeevamrit to Certification and finally Market for their Organic Produce.
2. Demotivating Farmers to use Lindane and Endosulphan – This was a project where we introduced farmers to organic manure LADEP to make them leave using these really harmful chemicals in farming.
3. Soil Testing This was done in 210 villages across Meerut to start a research-based dialogue with the farmers.
4. Biodiversity Herbal Gardens in SD Public School, Muzaffarnagar and Godwin Public School, Meerut.
