ICAR-CIWA Licensed “Women Friendly Multipurpose Integrated Vertical Nutri-Farming System (IVNFS) for Vegetable Production

Bhubaneswar18/4/23:The cultivable land for agriculture is shrinking due to increase in population pressure, urbanization and industrial growth. The livelihood of rural families is centered on agriculture and allied activities and in the villages of eastern India most of the households possess a small piece of land besides their home. To ensure dietary diversity and household nutritional security to the landless farm families ICAR-CIWA Bhubaneswar team comprising of Dr Tania Seth, Dr Arun Kumar Panda & Er Chaitrali Shashank Mhatre have developed the technology of “Women Friendly Multipurpose Integrated Vertical Nutri-Farming System (IVNFS) for vegetable production with mushroom and poultry”.

The low-income families can meet their needs for vitamins, minerals and plant protein through regular access to nutrient rich vegetables, mushrooms, eggs and meat obtained from this system. It increases farmwomen’s resilience to climate vulnerability and offer subsidiary source of income from the sale of small surpluses to the resource poor farm families.
