It’s very important to understand about farming. One part is farming sustainability and then comes the effective communication strategy part. When we say farming, it does not only mean the crops or cultivation of crops. Even when you talk about crops, there are multiple crops. Cereal, oil seeds, pulses, vegetables – All of these are crops. Farming also includes the dairy which includes cattle and other animals. There is a horticulture also. There is fishery.
So, talking about sustainability in farming, say, in agricultural crops. There are variety of factors like the Integrated Pest Management, Soil Management, Crop Management. On other hand, Water Management, Disease, Pest Management and Waste Management and so on. There are many factors. So, first of all, there is a need, when we say effective communication strategy, to have an understanding of the farm. What the farming issues are. What their concerns are and then also within those, the areas of attention. There is a need to focus on these while planning for an effective communication strategy.
