 Introducing a community to the art and science of scientific lac cultivation

 Basix as a part of the sub-sectoral study identified Lac as one of the main components of the diversified livelihood portfolio the Tribal and forest dwelling population of Jharkhand undertakes. In spite of the fact that Lac has through ages been a collected rather than a cultivated crop the facets of lac cultivation was very much known to the Tribal population. However still there remained multiple stages open for intervention. BASIX initiated in-depth discussion with PRADAN, ILRI and opinion leaders of the villages, to identify the broad parameters for intervention.

Intervention Points –

  • Supply of good quality broodlac to lac farmers
  • Supply of net bags and agrochemicals as a part of the package of Inputs
  • Scientific cultivation practices
  • Minimum assured output to farmers at 60 % of the input amount.
