Collective Farming

Collective Farming is an initiative introduced by Kudumbashree to encourage cultivation by neighbourhood groups. It not only brings in significant changes in the lives of the poor but also helps to increase agricultural production by bringing fallow and cultivable waste land into agricultural use, and has significance as a food security measure. Women enter the programme as cultivators as opposed to agricultural labour and control over the means of production and access to formal credit help in increasing the returns from farming. The programme is being implemented in all districts with the support of LSGs.
