Support to Agriculture
Apart from the fisher folk, agriculturists were also badly affected by the tsunami since their cultivable lands were rendered saline. PMSSS extended its solicitude to such farmers too, some of whom belong to the Dalit community. Natural and sustainable farming methods were introduced in these villages. Farmers were helped to construct vermi compost pits in their own yard and were supplied earthworms for vermiculture. Besides they were given necessary training in vermiculture. A borewell to the depth of 300 meters was rigged in Devanampattinam and drip irrigation system was introducted to restart agricultural activities, especially the cultivation of the fragrant jasmine for which the village is know. Mushroom culture was introduced. Sprinklers, motors and agricultural implements were distributed.
