To serve as an instrument of rural development & rural prosperity through the application of scientific knowledge and technology.
To make traditional rural enterprises more profitable and generating new business and employment opportunities in the rural sector through application of appropriate technologies.
To transform food & resource deficient Ladakh into a supply hub of organic vegetables, fruits, pulses, oilseeds, milk & animal products.
To create enough storage & processing infrastructure for handling bumper yields and provide enough food items during the winter months when Ladakh is cut-off from the rest of the country.
By using the latest technologies in agriculture develop the hitherto wasteland into the most productive land in the region.
Use the project as a model of technological advancement in agriculture and help and train surrounding villagers to adopt the methods, technologies, inputs etc. to improve their own productivity.
Value addition of the produce at the site to procure better returns / profits.
The project besides developing the wasteland, would help the area:
Generate employment for the rural / surrounding areas.
Train rural youth for various types of jobs in agricultural and processing.
Generate all round business opportunities for the rural areas surrounding the project.
Improve the local environment by conserving soil, water and energy.
Improve overall green cover.
Energy conservation and use of non-conventional sources of energy e.g. solar, bio-gas etc. A major portion of energy would be met through solar systems later supplemented by bio-gas plants which would be installed at the time of commissioning of the processing plant by using the effluent and the by-products.
The sewage and other effluents coming out of the processing plants and also the fresh cow & animal dung would be fully decomposed & recycled using latest aeration, filtration, solar heating and bacterial augmentation technologies.
Since 1947 or a little later, Ladakh has been dependent on food stuff supplies from the other states, due to a very short summer season and no possibility of open field cultivation during long winter season.
