The one-and-a-half-acre farm has been plowed with rain once. Asha is there because there is air. If the wind gets low, plow another time, and then sow. Rain has been declining since 2 years. Farmers are reluctant to sow as there is no rain. There is no information on the distribution of forage and sowing seed at the Farmer Contact Center, where forage is being transported to other areas. Lack of irrigation is a huge problem.
