Seed Production

Access to these advanced technologies will help secure livelihood of many farmers and consequently build a stronger nation and economy. Our objective is to strive for maximum yield by properly arranging the available resources and climatic requirements, to encourage agricultural activities in a co-operative way among unproductive areas and people

Unfortunately, the largest production unit of our country, i.e. agriculture, is being done in the most unorganized and haphazard manner. The subdivision of already small farms in an agricultural model, whose profitability is greatly linked to economies of scale, makes the survival of the small farmer very difficult. Although the introduction of tractors and other industrial implements, chemical fertilizers and pesticides, greatly increased the productivity of land and labor, it has not come without considerable burdens for the small farmer who is finding it very hard to compete with large and medium farmers. There are several villages where advanced farming technologies haven't reached yet. In present agricultural conditions, involvement of middlemen in sale purchase of the agricultural products is harming the interest of the farmers

Apart from above, the most important is to ensure availability of the working capital to the farmers in the form of seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and farm machinery. We, at Kamuna make available this working capital to the farmers. We encourage the SHGs comprising of farmers having small lands to cultivate in a way that can serve the interest of whole society. We provide advice to the SHG from the experts of Market Management to produce according to the present or future demand of the market.
