Step towards sustainability
In the age of cooperative federalism, farmers in the villages of Ajjampura hobli in Tarikere taluk, Chikkamagaluru district have taken cooperative farming to a whole new level. They are fast changing the perception of rural development by keeping scientific sustainable rural development as their motto and ensuring active participation of the farming community.
This form of development came as a blessing in disguise to these drought-hit villages through the coming together of Shivaprasad, a BBM graduate, Lohith and Kiran, both software engineers and Nagarajappa, a retired engineer. These like-minded people formed a team with the dream of empowering the local communities through various agricultural practices and agro-based activities which could lead to self-sustenance. This dream took flight when they established Mythri International at Katinagere village a year ago.
