The Agri Sprouts Group of DBCA-Sulcorna (female

students), led by Priyanka Parab, are doing method demonstration in GLM (Green Leaf Manuring) with Glyricedia sepium leaves and tender shoots and line transplanting for rice transplanting for the Madagascar Method or SRI (System of Rice Intensification), tribal practice from Madagascar- Africa that was researched and promoted by Cornell University of USA.

The Men’s Group, which calls itself the Kushawati Pistons, led by Akshay Parab, also teamed up with the Agri Sprouts to add value to the demonstrations.

This was done in the village of Malcornem near Salaulim Dam in Sanguem taluka that is located not too far away from DBCA Sulcorna as part of the Rural Agriculture Work Experience Program (RAWEP). RAWEP is a compulsory activity of one semester duration, which includes a 12 weeks’ stay among the farming families in the target village. The group lives like a family, including cooking their own food. There is no other student group working in this village. RAWEP camp started on June 11, 2018 and will continue till September, 2018.

There was also a Foot & Mouth Disease vaccination program for cattle organised by the Agri Bright group of six female students of Don Bosco College of Agriculture led by Vrundan Parab as a part of their RAWEP activity in village Netravali, with the technical manpower of the Veterinary Dispensary of the Directorate of AH and VS, Government of Goa and support of the Village Panchayat of Neturlim.
