Promoting Nature-Positive Production Systems


We are a Section-8 non-profit support organisation promoting Nature-Positive Farming and Food Systems (N+FFS) at scale across India. We believe that to meet the formidable challenge of producing adequate quantities of safe nutritious foods in a sustainable manner and to address the pervasive agrarian crisis, environmental crisis and rising incidence of malnutrition, it is crucial to mainstream nature-positive agricultural development and food system approaches which deliver on livelihoods enhancement and nutrition.


We build on the mandate of the NPM (Non- Pesticidal Management of agriculture) Network to promote pesticide-free sustainable agriculture and food systems. We collaborate with 25 organisations comprising NGOs, FPOs and market players in Central, Southern and Eastern India.

Designing and disseminating the illustrated version of the internal NPM Standards: The internal NPM standards are the protocols to be followed by NPM farmers that help them maintain the integrity of NPM produce by ensuring that no contamination occurs during production, harvest and storage. The manual (in Hindi) contains illustrations so farmers may understand the protocols and processes better.
