Home Who we are Overview


ISAP was established in 2001 by a group of agriculture and management professionals, with the belief that capacity building of small and marginal farmers' agricultural practices would help enhance their livelihoods and income, and thereby result in better quality of life for rural communities. In its formative years, ISAP's focus was on farmers' technical training through on-field and ICT-based interventions for agriculture development. Based on extensive learning on the field, over the years, ISAP's work has evolved to include integrated farming, farmer aggregation and market linkages into a comprehensive sustainable rural livelihoods approach.

In a decade and a half of existence, we have engaged directly with more than 150,000 small and marginal farmers and their families, strengthening their food and nutrition security, through interventions on sustainable agriculture with a focus on yield improvement, agribusiness, and human development. We work for women empowerment through the self-help group approach in our project locations. Environmental sustainability is an intrinsic element in our work through initiatives in natural resource management, soil fertility management, conserving bio-diversity, vermin-composting and sanitation.

We are recognised by the Union Ministry of Agriculture as a multi-state Nodal Training Institute partner for running Agri Clinic and Agri Business Centres under its MANAGE programme and are a leading resource institution with the Small Farmers Agribusiness Consortium (SFAC), Ministry of Agriculture, for promotion of Farmer Producer Organisations in India.
