Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation

For the farmers of India, this program is really a KALPAVRIKSHA, which is making a positive impact in their lives.

Founded by Marico, Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation’s objective is to make a difference in the life of Indian farmers. The word “Kalpavriksha” is derived from Devanagari script “Kalpa” (imagination/wish) and “Vriksha” (Tree), meaning the tree that fulfils your wishes. We are a Non-Profit organization working towards the welfare of farmers in India. Currently we have enrolled more than 65,000 farmers covering almost 2.75 Lakh acres of plantation across the states of: Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh.

Our team of 100+ Agronomists regularly pay visits to the farmers and educate them on scientific farming practices and help them increase their productivity. Apart from our Productivity improvement program, we provide other services like Agri Expert on phone, Agri Business Centers (ABC), Water conservation activities by construction of farm pond, classroom training to farmers through Kalpavriksha Knowledge Centre etc.

Why Does an Agronomist Find this Work Satisfying?

I have been working as an agronomist for Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation since 2017. I am glad to be a part of this organization which is striving to enhance the income of our farmers. Being an agriculture graduate, I can use my knowledge to give training and guidance to farming community.

My typical day starts with planning my visit schedule for the day. Once I reach the farm, I meet the farmer and help him identify issues in their farm and give them proper recommendations to resolve those issues and follow up with them regarding implementation. It gives me immense satisfaction at the end of every day when I see how my knowledge in agriculture is able to improve the lives of farmers.

For me, as an agronomist, I get a lot of exposure and learning opportunities about farming through various trainings and seminars from experts and collaborations through various stakeholders like Agricultural Colleges and State Department of Agriculture.

I am proud to be a part of Parachute Kalpavriksha foundation which is helping our farming community with various innovative initiatives like water conservation, Model Farms, Agri Business centre, agri expert on phone, etc. I am confident that Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation provides immense opportunities for me to prosper as an agronomist, and our team will achieve path breaking innovations in the field of sustainable agriculture

Golden words of Farmers



I have over 300 trees on my farm. My farming practices were not so organised, and hence, I faced many difficulties in nurturing my trees to give good yields. Fortunately, in the year 2018, Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation representatives paid regular visits to my farm, educated me about various techniques, and saved my farm from pest attacks. Compared to previous yields, I am getting a substantial quantity increase on my farm this year.

I have been involved in farming since 1974. Despite the experience I had in farming, I was stuck when the rhinoceros beetle attacked my trees. The Parachute Kalpavriksha Team has guided me with clear strategies on how to trap pests and arrest them. Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation has also shared knowledge on water management techniques for increasing the yield per tree and strategies to save water during drought seasons. I am very happy they are visiting my farm once a month to guide me on various aspects of farming.

We have been involved in farming practices for over 25 years. Stem bleeding disease had affected trees to a large extent. So, we decided to call the Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation team for inspection. After inspection, their team suggested remedies to overcome the disease. We applied those techniques and heaved a sigh of relief upon seeing the increased nitrogen levels in our soil, which benefited us with a higher yield per tree. I wholeheartedly thank the Parachute Kalpavriksha Foundation for its service to farmers!
Keep serving the farmer community.
