The performance contracting is a tripartite agreement between implementing/field social organization, Agreiprenuer and participating farmer. The key focus area here is to reduce the input costs by adopting organic farming process. A portion of farmer's field is taken up for performance contract. The input products & costs for both organic process and conventional vegetable cultivation are documented.
The input costs for new organic process is provided as an investment by Agriprenuer, who is responsible for monitoring and documenting progress & costs in both organic and conventional vegetable cultivation. At end of cultivation cycle, depending on performance, the Agriprenuer gets his share of investment and an associated incentive from SAAL. In case of non performance, the Agriprenuer looses his share of incentive from SAAL.
