NGO partner for tree plantation activities

In July 2017 we partnered with Ramit Basu a climate leader and social activist and Bundelkhand Sewa Sansthan our NGO partner for tree plantation activities in the Lalitpur district of Uttar Pradesh to plant and nurture 51000 fruit trees in ten villages of Anora, Masora, Bamhorikala, Sorai, Ala Jalandhar, Didoniya, Darutala Almoda Pahadikhurd, Neemkheda, Dhawa and Bhounti of the Bundelkhand region.

Enthused by the success of our 2016 fruit tree planting in the Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh, our benefactors agreed to our plan to do a much larger and more extensive fruit tree planting in the region. What started as a 11000 tree project culminated in the successful planting of 51000 fruit trees in these villages.

Fruit tree plantation in farm land and homesteads help marginal farmers become climate resilient.

We planted Guava, Pomegranate, Kathal - Jack fruit, Amla - Indian Gooseberry, Lemon, Bael - Wood Apple and Custard Apple saplings. 

Of these the 35000 Guava, Pomegranate, Amla - Indian Gooseberry and Lemon will start yielding fruit by the fourth year. On an average each tree will provide an incremental income of INR 500/- (USD 10.00) per year to the farmer family.  The remaining fruit trees -viz. Kathal - Jack fruit, Bael - Wood Apple and Custard Apple are slow to fruit, taking an average 7-9 years to fruition, but make up for this longer growth period by providing fruits and income in excess of Rs 1000/- (USD 20.00) per year.

We hope to achieve a survival rate of 80% or 40,000 fruit trees from this years fruit tree planting. Taking an average yield per fruit tree of Rs 500/- (USD 10.00), we will be able to help this area achieve and additional income generation of Rs 20 million (Rs two crore) or USD 400,000 by the year 2025.

Slow to grow Jackfruit Kathal trees yield upto 20 USD per year every year

One hundred fruit trees take up a quarter acre of land. These trees can provide an incremental income of INR 50000 or USD 1000 to the marginal farmer from the fifth year. Every year. For the next seventy to eighty years.
