Abstract:

A Front Line Demonstration (FLD) on Demonstration of Nutri Farms for year round nutrition security among farm families was implemented by ICAR-Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Bagalkot for the year 2018-19 in ten women farmers fields at Sunaga village of Bilagi taluak of Bagalkot district with an objective to improve the nutritional status of people vulnerable to micronutrient malnutrition by increasing the year round supply of a diverse range of fruit and vegetables from a household-managed garden. Ten families were purposively selected for implementation of this FLD and were given critical inputs like seed kit, Perennials, bioagents, worms and drip kit. The results revealed that, consumption of leafy vegetables increased, and money saved from purchasing vegetables. Women farmers perceived that, garden helped to improve the health of the family, families with children helped in the garden and encouraged other families to start a garden.
