GAP [Good Agricultural Practices] Documentaries

GAP Documentaries are a series of 10 agricultural Films across all the six ago-climatic zones of West Bengal. The three-year long program, funded by the World Bank, monitored by a Department of the Ministry of Irrigation, Govt. of West Bengal and implemented by the Vivekananda Institute of Biotechnology, Nimpith.

We captured all the program components with the beneficiaries in action to carve out 10 different GAP Documentaries as required for project documentation. GAP stands for Good Agricultural Practices.

Briefly, it combines organic inputs with the chemical ones to improve the soil eco-system triggering growth of sub-soil micro-nutrients. The techniques and method under GAP have been adopted by the farming community. Many farmers, who were not among the program beneficiaries embraced the measures of GAP and started moving toward a greater yield and a better farm environment.

The GAP Documentaries portray the interactions of the farmers with the scientists, program officials and nodal persons and does mirror the every effects of the program on field. The first sequence is common to all ten films, generic on the program as a whole and later sections are specific to the region or contract in particular.
