ENHANCING

PRODUCTION/PRODUCTIVITY OF

WHEAT

Dr. N.B. Singh

Agriculture Commissioner

Government of India

Department of Agriculture & Cooperation

Ministry of Agriculture

(September 14-15, 2006)


Projected production and requirement of wheat foodgrains l.jpg
Projected Production and Requirement of Wheat & Foodgrains

(Million Tonnes)

# Present growth rate of foodgrains – 2.1% consists of rice 2.7%, wheat 0.2%, coarse cereals 4.5%

$ Requirement includes consumption, buffer stock (4 million tonnes), availability of 15 days’ consumption in the open market of 2.9 million tonnes in 2006-07 and 3.12 million tonnes in 2011-12.






Causes for low productivity of wheat l.jpg
Causes for Low Productivity 2004-05of Wheat

  • Delayed sowing in rice-wheat and in cotton-wheat system

  • Low Seed Replacement Rate (SRR)

  • Low and imbalanced use of fertilizers / nutrients

  • Temperature rise during grain formation period

  • Deficiency of micro and secondary nutrients

  • Deceleration of factor productivity

  • Soil degradation and loss of fertility

  • Poor efficiency of irrigation water

  • Escalating cost of inputs – (especially diesel)

Delayed sowing results in Yield Decline 2004-05

Based on multilocation long term (10 Years) trials of ICAR (DWR Bul. 2004)

Strategies for Production Enhancement 2004-05

  • Area Expansion

  • 1 to 1.4 million ha in the States of U.P., M.P., Bihar, Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Gujarat

  • Productivity Increase

  • 25 to 40%

Productivity enhancement l.jpg
Productivity Enhancement 2004-05

  • Timely sowing (optimum sowing time between 15 Oct. to Mid Nov.)

  • Promoting high temperature tolerant varieties

  • Improved agricultural practices/sowing

  • Promoting integrated nutrient/pest management

  • Increasing water use efficiency through sprinkler

  • Zero Till cum Seed Drill

  • Increasing balanced use of fertilizer/application

Response of *N 2004-052 application on Wheat Productivity

* Accordingly ratio of Phosphorous and Potash to be added

Based on multilocation / year data recorded by ICAR (DWR Bul. 20)


Slide18 l.jpg

Lessons learnt about N 2004-052 Response in Wheat

* After 1990’s N2 application of 150kg / ha has recorded highest yield in entire wheat areas.

* 50 % N2 Basal + 50% at the time of first irrigation has given best results

* More than two splits of N2 is usually beneficial after application of 50% basal dose

* Under Zero tillage also 150 kg N2/ha has recorded highest yield

Action Plan 2004-05

Varietal Development

  • Terminal heat tolerant varieties

  • Suitable varieties with higher yield potential in Punjab, Haryana & western U.P.

  • Early maturing cotton varieties in cotton-wheat system.

  • Early maturing high yielding rice varieties for rice-wheat system.

  • Improved wheat varieties for late sowing.

Action Plan 2004-05

MANAGEMENT PRACTICES

  • Improved sowing methods for different cropping system

  • Direct seeding of rice in rice-wheat system

  • Efficient fertilizer/micro-nutrients use

  • Improved agronomic practices to address rise in temperature

  • Weed management

  • Mopping of Micronutrient deficiency


Required interventions for enhancing productivity l.jpg
Required Interventions for enhancing Productivity 2004-05

  • Identify Potential Regions / States i.e. Eastern UP, Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, West Bengal

  • Identify the districts with high yield potential ; 138 districts identified

  • Channelize input supply i.e. Seed fertilizer, farm machinery on priority
