Phulpui Village Embraces Long-Term Horticulture Practices for Sustainable Income

Phulpui village in the hills recently took a step towards a more secure future for its farmers. On January 30th, 2024, an awareness program on horticulture was held, attracting 34 participants from various villages.

The program aimed to encourage a shift from short-term farming, prevalent in the region, to long-term plantation of commercially viable fruits. Experts highlighted the suitability of litchi, lemon, banana, and orange for the local climate, emphasizing their potential for generating sustainable income for farmers.

Many hill area farmers struggle with irregular income due to their reliance on short-term crops. The program organizers believe this initiative will motivate a switch towards long-term plantation, enabling a consistent income stream for families. This shift has the potential to improve the overall economic well-being of the community.
