Rain fed Agriculture- Status

Adoption of farming systems approach in rain fed area

  • Four categories of rain fed farming systems

  • High-latitude rain fed systems with cold winters;

  • Mid-latitude rain fed systems with mild winters;

  • Subtropical and tropical rain fed highland farm systems;

  • Semi-arid tropical and subtropical farming systems.

  • Factors that influence the intensity and productivity of rain fed farming systems are-

  • Ratio of precipitation to potential evapo-transpiration,

  • Water availability,

  • Drought risk,

  • Temperature regimes,

  • Soil quality,

  • External input use,

  • Marketing margins & market access

  • Region / location specific IFS models to be tested in every State by integrating the following activities:

  • Agriculture

  • Horticulture

  • Animal Husbandry, Piggery,

  • Apiculture

  • Forestry

  • Fishery

  • Sericulture

  • Insitu soil moisture conservation

  • Micro-irrigation

Crop diversification income security

Crop Diversification- Income Security

In order to create Multiple Sources of Farm Income –

Crop diversification and mixed cropping system.

‘No field with one crop


no farmer with one income’.

Up scaling animal husbandry component in the farming systems

Up scaling Animal Husbandry Component in the farming systems

  • Linking Livestock to Crop Production System-

    • Production of Maize --Poultry Industry

    • Fodder Production--Dairy

    • Silage & Fortification of dry fodder-- Cattle feed

  • Comprehensive development of all the systems viz. production, storage,

  • processing and marketing.

  • Promotion of livestock activities for landless labourers.

  • Promotion of FPOs

  • Empowering of farmers / farmers organizations, to bring in change from subsistence rearing of livestock to a production oriented business system

  • Public private partnership models to be evolved and adopted.

  • Providing horizontal linkages between the components of livestock, agri, horti. Silvi-pasture Systems.

Promotion of dry land horticulture

Promotion of Dry land Horticulture

  • For sustainable productivity introduction of horticulture component in dry land systems is necessary.

  • To utilize the soil moisture effectively from the soil profile.

  • To secure assured income.

  • To mitigate the risk and to achieve nutrition security.

  • Promoting processing for value addition.

Watershed development

Watershed Development

  • Exclusive Watershed Development Department for Natural Resources Management.

  • Integration of land based activities-

    • Soil & Water Conservation,

    • Crop-husbandry,

    • Dry land Horticulture,

    • Social Forestry,

    • Animal Husbandry,

    • Fisheries,

    • Social Mobilization,

    • Livelihood improvement for landless (IG activities)

    • Implementation of Watershed activities through of SHGs, UGs and Watershed Committees

    • Convergence of MNREGA & JALASIRI
