Project Description

According to the bank document, the project's objective is "to enhance the agricultural productivity, profitability, and climate resilience of small holder farmers in selected districts in Andhra Pradesh. Specifically, the project aims to (1) increase the productivity of selected major crops by propagating high-yield, pest-, disease-, drought-, and flood-resistant varieties and corresponding precision farming practices; (2) increase cropping intensity by 30 percent in selected tank command areas; (3) enhance water productivity by 25 percent by modernizing and rehabilitating tanks and diversifying from paddy, a water-intensive crop, to higher-value crops; (4) reduce net Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions by scaling up adoption of climate-resilient, low-carbon agriculture, livestock, and pisciculture technologies and management practices; (5) increase the area covered by new or improved irrigation; and (5) Increase fish productivity in short-seasonal tanks by 50 percent."
