A group of 17 farmers from Australia visited ICRISAT and a few other sites on 9 July 2018 to better understand the science-led interventions that are changing the face of agriculture in the region. They also visited the Adarsha Watershed project in Kothapally and spent time interacting with the farmers and women’s self-help group members.

The farmers there informed them how increased water availability had helped them achieve higher crop yields and diversify into high value crops like vegetables and flowers.
