 +* **Ashish Kothari** : Anyone else with questions, pl. put in chat box
 +* **millionbelay** : I know. Just throwing it out.
 +* **tamaralaw** : @millionbelay interesting question. I am not fan of the use of the phrase ZBNF but would love to hear more from people who are familiar with this.
 +* **Shrishtee** : Pls feel free to drop in comments and questions. Ashish will be taking note of it..
 +* **millionbelay** : Do they also call their farming agroecological?​
 +* **tamaralaw** : The principles are the same, from what I understand.
 +* **millionbelay** : I know but just wondering.
 +* **Bibhu Farmer** : Q.1 Are the seeds native to Bangladesh ? How did it transfer to current farmers? Q.2  Seed bank managed by cooperative or farmers'​ group? Any govt. subsidy or policy friendly for them? Thank you 
 +* **Ashish Kothari** : yes similar principles .. but there are other issues
 +* **Ashish Kothari** : Bibhu, we will ask the speakers after they finish
 +* **Tawhidul Alam** : Can we have the recording of this session so that we can share with other colleagues.

 +* **Ashish Kothari** : ramanan, we will ask them
 +* **Tawhidul Alam** : Thank you.
 +* **Esteban Ramirez Hincapie** : Inspiring!
 +* **tamaralaw** : Wondering if Nayakrishi also practices some principles of permaculture. Would like clarity on what they mean by “uncultured agriculture”...
 +* **millionbelay** : I like the idea of household as an ecological unit.
 +* **Ashish Kothari** : yes, lovely phrase “household as ecological unit”
 +* **Sahil** : @Ashish (question): How far do Nayakrishi farmers link for their marketing efforts; as in from their Village to the nearest Mahallas / Unions, or Upazillas, or an Urban area?
 +* **grazia borrini** : Are they also purposefully '​integrating'​ any wild animal biodiversity into their production system?
 +* **millionbelay** : How is this seen by the Bangladesh government? Do they get support from government? Are the 350,000 farmers part of recognised by the government?
 +* **SVarghese** : ZBNF as practiced by some who adopted it and adapted it for their locales are similar to this, but also as I understand Palekar has come out supporting use of GMO use in ZBMF, and as Srishti pointed we are facing increasing fundamentalism,​ and in that context it is important to be aware of one issue that has been pointed (and may be ashish can also talk about it?) how the focus on Cow (use of dung, urine, ghee) etc. is being used by hindutwa elements ​
 +* **Pramod** : what percentage is rainfed farming? Any water conservation techniques followed? ​
 +* **Shrishtee** : Yes, this session is being recorded and it will be shared on GTA website!
 +* **SVarghese** : What is the intensity of birds per acre? is there a number that is found to be optimal? ​ Also what about wild animals (say like mongoose/ snakes) attacking these birds --- or that is taken as part of life? 
 +* **SVarghese** : It is shiney varghese
 +* **Bibhu Farmer** : Govt. in South Asia probably have same disease of ignoring the farmers :P . So true when you said, seed is key. Thank you for your explanation. Kudos !! 
 +* **SVarghese** : To me Nayakrishi with its focus on food sovereignty (politics) sounds very much in line with agroecological approaches that comes from latin america,  ​
 +* **Sahil** : Do we have some sort of indicators on malnutrition or under-nutrition in the regions where Nayakrishi works; perhaps longitudinally over number of years 
 +* **Syamkrishnan P. Aryan** : When you talk about new learnings by farmers, are there efforts to learn from the ancient wisdom ? if yes, how that is being shared across ?
 +* **Tawhidul Alam** : How the farmers are coping up with the floods, are there any techniques like that of CSAs into the farming practices?
 +* **Tawhidul Alam** : as we know many of the lands in the country are flooded during monsoon.
 +* **Sahil** : Faridaji would be great if you could share a link/page to see how one can order your items; I have a sizable group of development professionals working in Dhaka, they'd definitely love to try your products and share them as well 
 +* **tamaralaw** : Thank you, everyone. I need to head off. I’ve enjoyed this session throughly and got lots of new perspective on how we view agroecokogy,​ organic farming, traditional knowledge etc. I think Nayakrishi sits on the cusp of all these, consciously integrating culture and ethics in an ever-evolving system of farming that is not static. Farida and Farhad kudos to you and your team and thank you for sharing. To GTA - looking forward to many more interesting and enlightening sessions. Stay safe, everyone. Ciao for now.
 +* **Shrishtee** : Thanks for joining Tamara
 +* **Callie Berman** : Thank you for sharing these amazing insights and your experiences. I am wondering how ideas of ecological households can become transferable in a meaningful way to people in urban areas in industrialized countries who may see these models as interesting but so far from anything they may be able to participate in outside of the consumer participation in a global capitalist world. Do you have any thoughts for people who, perhaps in growing up in urban worlds, have no direct experience with food cultivation and that because of how these things typically become narrated, don’t want to incorporate any of these things into their lives outside of purchasing products or encouraging more tech solutions for improved food production? Hope the question isn’t too vague but feel that there is an important dimension of imagination that with so many urban consumers continuing to support the current food production model. Thank you! 
 +* **tamaralaw** : Stayed for the animal talk - wonderful perspective! An ecological approach that is anthropocentric cannot be ecological.
 +* **Pramod** : thank you
 +* **millionbelay** : How are the people economically better off. Do they have enough cash to do what they want to do?
 +* **SVarghese** : Hi Shrishtee, i got kicked out -- would the record be available somewhere, so that I can listen to the rich discussion I have missed out on? 
 +* **Shrishtee** : sure, it will be. We will upload it on GTA website!
