           The Society For Conservation of Mango Diversity (SCMD) is an organization working for mango growing community empowerment and mango diversity conservation. Activities taken up by SCMD mainly aim on the empowerment of communities of Kasmandi Kalan, Gopramau, Sarsanda and Mahmood Nagar Talukedari to appreciate more value and uniqueness of their mango diversity and its on farm conservation. A more sensitive social environment is being created in these communities for on farm conservation of mango diversity. This is achieved by documenting diversity through the community members, awareness interactions, diversity fairs, linking with markets, study visits, trainings and interaction meetings. Local communities have taken ownership of the farmers mango catalogue, diversity fairs and committing resources for these events. Traditional mango farming systems in the area of diversity have been strengthened as a result of the technical support of scientists of CISH, Lucknow by providing solution to mango production problems and awareness for on-farm conservation. Linking community mango farmers with new markets through SCMD initiatives aims on generating additional income from rare mango varieties. As a result few conservationist farmers have had great success in selling community rare mango varieties at higher price and the message has to spread gradually in the community that the scope of getting higher price of non commercial varieties is increasing day by day.

Community farmers participated in following diversity fairs:
