Crop productivity has increased with the adoption of improved technologies

Diversification of income sources and cropping pattern.

Drivers of change

Drivers of Change

access to irrigation facilities

adoption of modern technology

better road connectivity and market linkages

educated workforce

diversity in economic activities and livelihood opportunities

Drivers of change1

Drivers of Change

Main engine for development in different villages

  • Aurepalle: diversification of ag. and growth of non-farm activity

  • Dokur: migration income

  • Kanzara: intensification of agriculture and technology adoption

  • Kinkheda: increase in farm productivity

  • Shirapur: diversification of crop production and economic activities (including industries)

  • Kalman: diversification of farm and non-farm activities

  • Amongst these villages, development in Kinkheda was relatively less due to lack of social capital and collective action.
