Plantation Project Report. (For Global Grant)

Rajasthan state is located in the north west of India. It is a largest state of the country by area and seventh largest by population. The state is comprising mostly large and inhospitable "Thar Desert". The average rainfall in the state is much less than national average. The natural water sources are negligible. For water requirements state is mainly depends on ground water and rain water. The ground water level is depleting every year and now in a bad condition. The most of the state area falls under abnormally dark zone. Agriculture in the state is mainly based on rains. The financial condition of farmers of state are not good, most of the farmers are below poverty line. For the upliftment of economic condition of farmers, to create green zone, create oxygen zone and water harvesting or conservation, a project is required urgently in the state. Our club wants to start the said project with the assistance of Global Grant and DRFC funds. The project details are as under: -

1. About the project: By this project we will be able to give back to conducive environment and water to mother nature. It will enhance the economic conditions of local farmers.

2. Identification of Land and area: A detailed serve of the area was conducted around Jaipur city (around 50 KM from city area in Chomu Block).

3. Work: Plantation, Rain Water harvesting and collection of water for direct use. Installation of solar water pump and drip irrigation system.

Main Objects:

1. Plantation will be in farmer's land. Only fruits plants will be cultivated. The plants will grow after three years and will start reaping fruit crop. The life of plants are ten years. We will execute an agreement with the individual farmer wherein farmers will undertake that he/she will take care of plants/trees and in any circumstance, he will not cut the plants/trees. Rotary person, Club members, consultants etc. will monitor the project and can visit for required inspection. A local authority person "Village Sarpanch" will endorse the same. All income from crop will go to farmer.

2. Water harvesting for recharge of ground water and collected water would use directly for plantation/ dirking water. A pond can be constructed in farm land for the storge of water or recharge of old borewell/open well.

3. Install solar water pumps and irrigation system in farm land.

Benefits of Plantation:

1. Create Green zone.

2. Store Carbon.

3. Regulate extreme weather temperature.

4. Improve soil and water conservation.

5. Increase Birds habitat.

6. To improve Economic conditions of farmers.

Benefits of Rain Water Conservation/Harvesting:

1. Easy to maintain.

2. Independent water supply.

3. Reduce Floods and soil erosion.

4. Rainwater for drinking purpose.

5. Reduce water bills.

6. Improvement in ground water level.

7. Increase in agriculture produce.

Benefits of Solar water pump.

1. Reduce electric bills.

2. End of dependability of electric supply.

3. Improve irrigation System.

Benefits of Drip irrigation system.

1. Save water.

2. Improve efficiency of farmer.

3. Better growth of plantation.

4. Improve cultivation area.

Proposed project report on Livelihood enhancement through Integrated Horticulture in Chomu Block

Executive Summary

• The proposed project is to enhance the livelihood opportunity for poor and marginalised farmers along with entrepreneur setup in Chomu Block of Jaipur District. The project will be implemented in Dhodsar, Singod Khurd, Singod Kala, Nangal Kala, Dhoblai and Anantpura Panchayat with the support of local administration. From each Panchayat, 25-50 needy farmers will be selected with the help of Panchayat.

• The Proposed project aim is to enhance the income of small land holding farmers through minimum input cost through integrated agriculture practices. As nationwide, the groundwater level is decreasing day by day which is a major concern for the farmers to get a profitable income from their agricultural land. The av. Rainfall in Rajasthan is 600mm which is below half of national average rainfall. Also the unpredictable climatic change is a big concern to fulfil the demand of agricultural produce in upcoming decade.

• This project will be able to provide sustainable livelihood opportunity to the marginal and small land holding farmers. It will also contribute in prevention of climate change, green restoration in the block through fulfilling the needs of local community in ensuring them livelihood opportunity and achieving demand driven need of farmers.
