PRDF involves agriculture, farmersí related research and development institutions (government, non-government and autonomous), and private enterprises with similar focus and mission.
PRDF specializes in developing and producing superior high-yield seeds, allowing local farmers to achieve a strong harvest as well as propagate their own seeds for the next crop cycle. Seeds are tested, mass produced, and made available to farmers (view complete list of seeds)
Working directly with farmers is what participatory development is about, and it is always a two-way process. Farmers across 7 districts of Uttar Pradesh are actively involved in the testing process with crop varieties by trialing the seeds within their plots and assisting in the analysis.
