Meet Better Cotton Farmer Sabari Jagan Valvi from India as she talks about her experience implementing new sustainable farming practices.
Sabari joined the Better Cotton and Lupin Foundation programme three years ago. By adopting new sustainable practices in line with the Better Cotton Principles and Criteria such as intercropping, vermicompost and neem extract, Sabari has witnessed an improvement in soil health and managed to reduce her costs.
“This year I have sown cotton over 2 acres following the practices promoted by Better Cotton. Through single seed sowing and seed treatment, I managed to save 50% of the cost of sowing this season.”
