Since its beginnings in 2001, our founding objective has been to safeguard the interest of Indian farmers by promoting the use of traditional agricultural methods. Set up to protect farmers from exploitation, Annadana specializes in implementing innovative low cost solutions that empower rural communities to become self sufficient.
Our strategy is based on the belief that farmers using non-hybrid seeds can use simple organic cultivation methods that enable them to grow sustainable, cost-effective and healthier food.
ANNADANA’s FOCUS IS IN 3 CORE AREAS:
TRAINING & RESEARCH
Operating independently, Annadana has become a unique source of information for biological researchers, agronomists and environmentalists through our training program that has attracted visitors from around the globe.
Based in southern India, Annadana’s work has ranged from post-Tsunami & flood agricultural relief to creating organic farming models in Laos, Bhutan and India’s North East.
As a tireless campaigner, Annadana is proud to have played a significant role in bringing about India’s 2009 moratorium on Genetically Modified Foods.
