Training on Crop Management and SRI Technique:
SPECTRA`s approach is to carry out crop productivity enhancement by means of helping the farmers to identify and analyse their crop production problems, and become aware about the opportunities for improving. The main focus under this intervention is on awareness generation and purposive transfer of skills.
The SRI programme started in Kishangarh Bass block of Alwar district. Till now we have reached over 1000 farmers across 30 villages.
Ajola Establishment: For fodder development, Ajola Bed is introduced in the field for cattle-feed. Ajola is green cattle-feed for the increscent of milk production in animal.  
Vermi Compost establishment:  Warmicompost bed is established in the field for the promotion of organic farming. Warmi bed had 3 fit width and 10 fit height. In 25-30 days 1 tan. 40 Vermicompost bed are established in the project area. 

Dairy Development:  SPECTRA works with rural families in the promotion of dairy and animal rearing activities in the project areas of Kishangarh-Bas of Alwar district. In the projected area, rearing practices remain poor, veterinary services are non-existent, and market linkage is absent.
Thus SPECTRA seeks to help bring in better-quality breeds, veterinary care, good rearing practices and marketing system. SPECTRA is expanding its outreach programmes with the linkage of poor women with dairy. SPECTRA started the process of collaboration with Saras, Lotus and Mother Dairy for opening the collection centres. 3 milk collection centre are opened till to date.   

Animal Husbandry:
Existing rearing pattern and traditional methods are examined in the projected area and provided training of women in feeding and husbandry practices, veterinary care, and the creation of systems for effective marketing. SPECTRA  provides assistance for the induction of new animals, while giving attention as well to better housing and veterinary care, especially the provision of immunization against diseases.

Animal Treatment Camp:  Animal Treatment Camps were organized in the projected area of Kishangarh bass. Veterinary doctor and compounder checked the animal and prescribed the medicine to them. Before one day SPECTRA staffs contacted the women to get benefit from the camp.
