Economic value to the farmers
Tamarind tree needs very less care after a certain age and grows on its own. Its leaves are very tasty and so are the fruits. The fruits can be consumed by the farmers or sold. The price that the farmer gets upon selling tamarind is good. Also, as the input costs decrease over the years, the profits increase and the farmer is benefitted economically for many years to come.
About the Project
Once the tamarind saplings are given to the farmers, they shall also be provided with the technical knowledge to grow and sell tamarind. The project is a long term one and support to the farmers shall be given for 3 years till the tamarind 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.
