●   Front Line Demonstrations

SPARK is fully involved in the Front line demonstrations of the latest agro technologies to the farmers of the most backward districts of Bihar in order to ensure subsistence and sustenance of nutrient food security among the most vulnerable populations including farm women and children. The demonstrations focus on the production of quality protein maize both through single crop as well as intercrop. In addition, production of hybrid maize using good agricultural practices has been projected and demonstrated. SPARK also arranged the seeds and other critical inputs for the farmers of flood affected villages and the contingency planning for their agricultural and live stock management with minimum inputs. SPARK being an association of agricultural scientists, the farmers of different agro-ecological zones are able to get maximum help and assistance through its various activities.
