To ensure participation of the small and marginal farmers in socio-economic development, a unique Village Cluster Development Approach is evolved under NMOOP scheme during the year of 2016-17 by Krishi vigyan Kendra, Vridhachalam. Totally 30 ha of land were utilized for this demonstration. Out of this 20 ha was under black gram and 10 ha was under green. Farm families in cluster of villages were motivated to participate in holistic development through demonstration of high yielding varieties of black gram and green gram varieties, Seed treatment with bio fertilizers and bio control agents, spraying of pulse wonder, and integrated pest management practices. The farmers were also supplied with the critical inputs like seeds, bio fertilizers, bio control agents, pulse wonder, etc. for income generation and for improving the quality of life.This cluster village approach enabled over 95 per cent of black gram farmers and 90% of the participant green gram farm families socio economic status were improved . The average crop yield increased by 10% in black gram and 14 per cent in green gram while the overall income increased by 10 per cent for black gram and 37.2 per cent for green gram
