TKF has been working on the gaps which exist between the traditional cultivation practices by farmers and the latest technological methods. In order to reduce their physical drudgery, risk mitigation and organic method of cultivation, many cost effective scientific techniques have been demonstrated in the farmers fields along with the principal on which it works. Promotion of pheromone traps, tricoderma, neem oil, caster cake etc have been promoted. New varieties of crops are being propagated which not only produce good yield but also require less irrigation and are pest resistant. Farmers are being motivated and guided to practice multi cropping in their fields so as to maintain their soil health and its fertility.
