aQysta has a proven method to revitalise barren land and make small farmers more profitable. aQysta’s renewable irrigation solutions allow irrigation of up to 0.5 hectares enabling the cultivation of otherwise uncultivable land. By training farmers in regenerative farming practices, aQysta also ensures healthy and resilient soils.

We offer you the chance to revitalise a 20-square-meter plot of land in North-East India. You will directly support small farmers and their families, who can grow more food and earn more income while farming in harmony with their environment.

Project

Profitable small farmers with healthy soils

This project increases small farmers’ incomes and revitalises soils in North-East India with renewable irrigation technologies and regenerative farming practices. We provide farmers with knowledge, tools and daily training to grow high-value crops (like garlic, ginger and watermelon) to improve their soil health, climate resilience and incomes. We also support farmers by selling their harvest and sharing the profits with them. The revitalised land will be used again for the next growing season when another crop will be grown.

We plan to revitalise 1.000 hectares in the next five years in India. To make this happen, we need you!

Threat

Around 40 million people depend on agriculture in North-East India, and 80% of its population consists of small farmers and their families. Many of these farmers remain critically poor and lack the resources and knowledge to increase their agricultural productivity and profitability. Many farmers have also used unsustainable farming techniques for years, which has resulted in land degradation of more than 37% of the land in North-East India. At the same time, unpredictable weather patterns and climate change threaten the food security of these small farmers as floods and droughts are increasing. These farmers need support to improve their livelihoods while farming in a way that increases their soil health and resilience to climate change.

Solution

We partner with small farmers to share knowledge, technology, risks, and benefits to support them in their struggles and make them thrive. We offer a total package of agricultural services, including renewable irrigation technology, training in regenerative farming, quality farming inputs, financial support and market access for selling their crops. With our help, farmers can learn how to revitalise their lands while mitigating and adapting to the consequences of climate change and increase their productivity and incomes up to 9 times.
