WADI – under TDF with NABARD

WADI

The WADI is a holistic development approach that takes into account all aspects of rural life. This concept can be viewed from different levels or perspectives. Viewed through a wide angle, it covers the development of a designated area of land and its inhabitants in the form of a WADI cluster. It has dimensions of farm production, natural resource management, social mobilization and economic upliftment. From an individual farm perspective it is a tree-based farming system, more specifically a WADI system, in which the agri-horti-forestry unit interacts with other production components of the farm such as annual crop fields and livestock. At the level of the physical land unit, the WADI plot is an agri-horti-forestry arrangement of beneficial plant species. This concept has turned out to be a practical strategy for the development of smallholders in dry areas who cannot take the risk of investing in high-input intensive agriculture because of poor land quality and limited water availability.
Keeping in view of the above concept 500 numbers of tribal families have been come up to raise orchard in 500 acre of waste land. Entire 500 acre is established and from the ensuing year only management will be done. This year NABARD has entrusted to raise and later nurtured another 500 acre area for 500 tribal families. Only 100 acre is established and another 400 to be planted.
