Who We Are

National Agro Foundation (NAF) was set up as a Public Charitable Trust in 2000 by Mr. C Subramaniam, (Architect of India's Green Revolution and Bharat Ratna Awardee) to usher in rural revolution with special focus on agriculture and small and marginal farmers as well as to bring about inclusive growth. Having been the architect of India’s Green Revolution with a “Seed to Grain” approach, Mr Subramaniam envisioned NAF for economic and social development of farmers with a “Soil to Market” approach on a sustainable basis.

Dr A P J Abdul Kalam, Former President of India succeeded Mr Subramaniam and guided NAF as the Chairman of its Governing Council till he became the President of India.

Inspired by the opportunity to deliver innovative and replicable solutions to the complex and interlinked socio- economic- environmental challenges of today’s rural India NAF has articulated an agile strategy with prime focus on advancing and strengthening the interdependent and mutually reinforcing pillars of sustainable development with “Education” “Economy”, “Environment” & “Empowerment” as its thematic focus in the context of agriculture and rural development

NAF believes that sustainable development is about recognizing, understanding and acting on the interconnections, between these thematic areas
