During the period year-2015, it was felt that farmers are not getting the expected yields and price for their produces. It is experienced that a class of traders are controlling the whole market economy of agri-produces. It is a vicious cycle and we have to find a way out by ourselves. It was decided to form Farmers Producer Organization (FPO) and make contacts with NABARD for necessary support and guidance. Farmers Club members also decided to constitute a FPO managed by women only and accordingly Trust Body members were identified to form an organization through process of several meetings and discussions. In this course of time, NABARD guided the FC members to formulate the aims, objectives and bye-laws of the Trust Act and supported to get it Registered under Trust Act as “SRIJONI UTTARAN FARMERS CLUB FEDERATION TRUST” which later on emerges to a Producer Company named – Gramsathi Agri Tech Producer Company Limited.
