Economic value to the farmers
Guava is the fruit that is got from the tree. The fruit can be eaten by the farmer and family members or sold. The market price of guava keeps on increasing year on year. Also, a guava tree fruits 2 times in a year. This increases the revenue that the farmer can get from the trees that have been planted.
About the Project
Once the guava saplings are given to the farmers, they shall also be provided with the technical knowledge to grow and sell guava. The project is a long term one and support to the farmers shall be given for 3 years till the guava start to come in trees.
The trees are geotagged. The area boundary is marked using GPS. Farmer details along with the images. All the data is captured and stored through mobile apps directly from the field. Carbon fixing that is happening yearly is calculated by using the equations developed by the experts for different species in app and reports. Total transparency is maintained in getting the data, storing the data and analysing the data.
The impact that is being created by the project for wildlife and farmers is measured. All data is captured in regular intervals and the same is analysed by comparing with the previous data on the same parameters calculated a few months ago. The change is measured against the planned results.
The project reports are prepared and sent to the contributors. The report covers the following
1) Trees status as on the last visit made
2) Any mortality in the trees planted
3) Carbon fixed in MT from the start of the project
4) Economic impact on the farmers.
5) Ecological impact created.
