About a decade ago, RD and Rohini Iyer, both agricultural scientists, retired from their respective jobs. RD had built his career on botanical genetics, while Rohini, had worked on the integrated control of fungicide on ginger and coconut.While the couple might have left their jobs, their passion to better the agricultural sector still burned bright.
After having worked in various parts of India, they decided to make the Thazhava village in Kollam, Kerala, their home and work for the welfare of farmers here.
Rohini had inherited a plot of land from her mother in this part of Kerala, and the duo built a small home on it. Their three daughters had already established their careers, and so, the couple could focus solely on their ‘second-innings.’They established an NGO and christened it the NavaSakti Trust, to empower hundreds of farmers with innovative agricultural techniques and value-added initiatives that could earn them big profits.
Navsakthi aims to provide opportunities for hands-on training of farming women, men and the youth, for capacity-building, based on the principles of 'learning by doing', to promote and encourage micro-enterprises in the area of biological software for sustainable agriculture, through the progressive adoption of organic farming methodology and biological control of diseases and pests and to harness Science and Technology for the economic well-being, nutrition, livelihood, and health securities of farming families, through efficient recycling and utilization of organic wastes, ensuring a clean environment, by transferring appropriate and proven technologies.
