AGRICULTURE (JOINT LIABILITY PROGRAM):
Presently we are working in 5 (five) districts out of total 11 districts in the state under the Joint Liability Group (JLG) Programme in partners with National Agriculture Bank and Rural Development (NABARD), Dimapur Regional Office, Nagaland. We also have two Self Help Programme Initiatives (SHPI) programmes of NABARD one in Dimapur and other in Mokokchung district. We have more than 2000 farmers registered under the NCHD-IT who have taken up agriculture and agri allied programmes. They are cultivating different crops. Some are into tea, Cardamom – covering over three thousand hecters, Rubber, Black pepper, Maize, Rajma Beans, potatoes, Cabbage and etc. in large scale. This JLG movement has instilled in the minds of the farmers to think big and go for large scale cultivation. The organization has been working hard to help them link to state government and Central Government and financial institution like banks – for financial and technical support.
