The Foundation had advised farmers to find out the cause of drought in the Saurashtra region and to make a forum for collective efforts to resolve it. Saagatia said, "With the increase in production, our income has also increased. Earlier, we got Rs 3,500 per quintal but now we are getting Rs 4,500. "He further said," After making the company, we started selling our product in Nafed. Earlier we used to sell in local markets. Now the farmer informs us about the quantity of our product and we allocate the date for the product to be sold. It is connected through a message alert. "

"He said," We work towards encouraging agriculture. “We ensure that no farmer left his farm due to reasons like changes in the weather, low production, low yielding prices in the market, etc. ". This productive farmers has set up a laboratory in Babra tehsil for better production. . The farmers of 17 villages come here to test their seeds before sowing.
