India Umsning

Located in the mountainous tribal area of Northeast India, the India Umsning program is focused on increasing yields, improving soil quality and reducing erosion by using the System of Rice Intensification (SRI)  and Sloping Agricultural Land Technology (SALT).  Other important training topics include water harvesting, kitchen gardening and livestock rearing.   Participants are mobilized into Self Help Groups where they learn and save funds together.
