How SPNF practices makes famers Self-sustainable :
Farmers practicing SPNF have optimal crop yields with low-cost input and have expanded income sources. Savings on the cost of seeds, fertilizers and plant protection chemicals have been substantial which makes farmers financially self-sustainable
Fixed asset value of the farmers land in terms of soil fertility and productivity is ultimately improved through 5 wheels of SPNF practices
SPNF’s potential in enhancing soil fertility , preserving biodiversity and ecosystem services, strengthening climate resilience makes it environmentally sustainable
Food and Nutritional security achieved through SPNF produce makes SPNF Socially sustainable
