Abstract

Participatory Rural Appraisal as an approach and methods for learning about rural life and conditions from rural people. Due to many revolutions held in the field of agriculture, it changed its way of doing practice into a more scientific way. The technology of doing agriculture was improved from its conventional way. Many challenges have been noticed and they have been suppressed at its best. But even though some problems are raised at farmer's field which is unable to reach brainstorming desk of scientists. This is because the real need of farmers is very minimally noticed and ground-level exploration is lacking in this due to many reasons. The suggestions and remedies to their problems should be at their frequency of understanding. In this process, we have achieved a model problem shooter and its way of solving the farmer's problems at ground level and helping the farming community more understandably. This model can be practised for having a lively experience of getting infiltrated into the village activities and rural routine.
