WOTR has implemented the Pro-Soil project funded by GIZ in 8 villages of Bhokardan taluka of Jalna district in Maharashtra. The primary aim of the project is to promote sustainable and inclusive approaches for soil conservation, rehabilitation of degraded lands and improve soil health to enhance the crop productivity. In these 8 villages, a total of 6,989 ha of land were selected for this project. Based on the soil tests carried out, plot and crop specific recommendations on nutrient management through organic methods were given to the farmers. It was found that organic techniques in general increase productivity of the soybean and wheat crops.
