To this end, the program has adopted a multi-pronged approach including components such as agriculture development & diversification, creation of livelihood opportunities for youth through the Cargill Agri-Fellows program, economic empowerment opportunities for women, etc.

Till date, the program has trained 5000 participating farmers to adopt enhanced and diversified agricultural practices to increase productivity, leading to a 40% increase in incomes for the participating farmers, and supported 25 Cargill Agri-Fellows to set up their own agri-enterprises.
