NATIONAL WASTE LAND DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (NWDP) GOVT OF INDIA

During 1986 we have been instructed by the Ministry of Forest and environment to cover 150 villages to raise nursery and plant short term and perennial species to promote vegetation.

The entire work has been carried out by the members of SHGs. Five sub nurseries and one central nursery were developed and different varieties of species were raised, after six months the seedlings were distributed to the small and marginal farmers.

These were short term trees and the perennial species were supplied after one year, this is to promote vegetation and also for fuel purposes and timber.
