G. Force – 07..newest cluster to join Akshata Farming Heroes

Years of Handwork finally paid off with the  latest addition of 300 farmers formed as Akshta Green force 7 joining the family of Akshata farmers focused on sowing and harvesting exclusively Akhshata Seed Paddy which are strictly Non-GMO, Low  GI and antioxidant high.

Convincing and training farmers to move away from hybrid varieties of paddy which are easier to grow as they are depended on chemicals and urea (which gives higher yields) is no easy task but with much persuasion and patience this new cluster is now convinced that growing Chemical free paddy will not only save our precious soil but will also bring them economic prosperity with a lower cost of production and a high income earner.

Akshata  works directly with the farmer providing them the seeds, compost organic  fertilizer, technical know-how on sustainable farming and the use of alternatives to hazardous chemicals while purchasing the paddy at three times the price of the normal hybrid varieties of rice.
