  • Training calendar for intensive training of field functionaries has been prepared in consultation with the authorities of Indira Gandhi Agricultural University, Raipur.
  • Training of Master Trainers by MANAGE personnel under ATMA scheme have been conducted.

Progress in Seed Production & Distribution

  • Seed production and distribution in Chhattisgarh is gradually increasing:

(Unit in Quintals)


Progress in balanced use of fertilizers

  • Balanced use of fertilizers is showing an improving trend:
  • (Kharif + Rabi)

(Unit : 000 tonnes)


Progress of Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

  • IPM is being popularized in the state:

Note : Demonstration & Training programme merged with FFS - Farmers Field Schools


Progress of Integrated Nutrient Management (INM)

  • INM is being encouraged in the state:

a. Biofertilizer distribution

Unit - No. of packets

b. Micronutrient fertilizer use

Unit - in qtls.


Major constraints in improving productivity

    • More than 75% cultivated area is rainfed.
    • This results in low productivity of crops.

* Data pertains to year 2003-04


Major constraints …...

  • Small and marginal farmers constitute more than 72% of the total farmers.
  • Cannot afford high value inputs.
  • Awareness level is also very low.

Steps taken to improve productivity:

  • Package of practices recommended by the State Agricultural University for a particular crop will be followed.
  • Under diversification programme, pulses and oilseeds with more emphasis on sunflower are being promoted in place of summer paddy which has high water requirement.
  • Timely pre-positioning of the important inputs like seed, fertilizer, pesticides and agricultural implements in sufficient quantity has been planned.

Steps taken (Contd…..)

    • Seed distribution target of 18,585 qtls. has been kept for Rabi 2005-06 which is about 34% higher than the last season's distribution.
    • Fertilizer distribution target for Rabi 2005-06 is 191970 tonnes which is 13% higher than last year.
    • Zero tillage technology of gram cultivation which saves energy, time and labour and helps to produce gram at a much lower cost will be promoted.

Steps taken (Contd…..)

  • Intercropping of Pulses with Sugarcane :
    • Short duration pulses with erect growth habit and close canopy are suitable for intercropping with sugarcane.
    • Urd and moong would be promoted in January, February as intercrop with sugarcane which would result in additional area under pulse cultivation.
  • Convergence of oilseed production programme with watershed development programme have been planned.

Steps taken (Contd…..)

  • Promotion of proper and balanced mix of NPK fertilizer, use of sulphur, use of bio-fertilizers, popularization of IPM technologies & promotion of sprinkler sets will help in increasing productivity.
  • Improvement in productivity of Rabi maize will be promoted through transfer of modern crop production technology, field IPM & seed minikits demonstration.
  • Advanced methods of irrigation as drip and sprinkler system will be encouraged.

Steps taken (Contd…..)

  • Farm mechanization
  • Farm power availability in Chhattisgarh is only 0.6 kw/ha against national average of 1.40 kw/ha.
  • Hence efforts have been made to increase mechanization as well as promoting awareness about farm mechanization.

Steps taken (Contd…..)

  • 900 diesel/electric pumpsets on 75% subsidy and 750 dugwells on 50% subsidy for small & marginal farmers under State scheme (Shakambhari).
  • 25000 Low Lift Pumps (hand operated) will be made available within four years on 75% subsidy to small & marginal farmers.

Steps taken (Contd…..)

  • Farm Plan approach
  • A 5-year Farm Plan approach in case of individual farmers (small, marginal & medium) for agriculture development has been initiated.
  • In the first phase, 3700 farmers of this category have been selected.
  • Each farmer's field will be supervised by a field functionary (RAEOs).
  • Cases of short/medium term loans have been sanctioned by the banks.

Steps taken (Contd…..)

  • Agriculture Credit flow
    • Timely availability of credit will be ensured.
    • Chhattisgarh is the first state in the country to provide short and medium term loan @ 9 % interest to the farmers through the cooperative sector.
    • Agriculture Credit Flow

Year 2003-04 : Rs. 224.00 crore

Year 2004-05 : Rs. 330.00 crore

  • Year 2005-06 : Rs. 410.00 crore (Target)

Progress on APMC Act Amendment

    • The APMC (Amendment) Act has been presented to the State Assembly and the same has been referred to a committee.
    • The amended Act is likely to be passed in the coming Assemblysession.

Readiness to implement National Horticulture Mission

  • Action Plan for 2005-06 has been approved by the National Executive Committee for NHM.
  • Chhattisgarh State Horticulture Development Society (SHDS) has been registered.
  • The District Level Societies have been established.
  • Area identification, crop selection and identification of farmers in clusters have been started.

National Horticulture Mission (Contd….)

  • Present area under horticultural crops is 1.25 lakh ha. This will be doubled as per Mission objectives.
  • Total no. of 16 clusters spread in 165 villages in 7 districts have been selected.
  • MoUs have been signed for assured marketing and buy-back support.
  • Bank Accounts of the beneficiaries have been opened.

Readiness to implement ATMA related existing programmes

Five districts in the state have been selected for ATMA related activities :


ATMA related programmes (Contd…..)

  • District Nodal Officers' Orientation Workshop have been organized in June 2005.
  • Training of Master Trainers have been conducted by MANAGE personnel from 8-15th September 2005.
  • Constitution of ATMA Governing Board, BTT & FACS have been approved.

Status of Quarantine facilities in the state

  • Presently there is no quarantine facility in Chhattisgarh.
  • With the beginning of container services, import & export of food commodities, planting material, quarantine facilities will be set up in due course.

Suggestions for improving Rabi production

  • Quality seeds are the most crucial of agricultural inputs. Hybrid seeds which have 15 to 20% yield advantage have to be promoted.
  • GOI need to make subsidy provision for hybrid seeds which are very costly for the small & marginal farmers of the state.
  • A revised programme according to the guidelines of GOI is being finalized for successful implementation of the seed village programme.

Suggestions (Contd…..)

  • Suitable high yielding wheat cultivars need to be developed for mild & short winter in the state.
  • Fertilizer consumption in tribal districts of Chhattisgarh needs to be increased.
  • Funds required for free distribution of fertilizer minikits in tribal areas.

Suggestions (Contd…..)

  • Gross irrigated area in the state is only 23 %.
  • Field channels can prove very useful to increase the irrigation efficiency.
  • Central funds would be very crucial in this regard. A detailed proposal for development of field channels is being submitted for consideration.

Suggestions (Contd…..)

  • Presently there is no irrigation & line subsidy to individual farmers for tubewells. Central subsidy in this area will go a long way in irrigation development.
  • Central subsidy on farm implements needs to be increased from 25 % to 50 % in view of poor economic status of the farmers.

Suggestions (Contd…..)

  • Continuous training of farmers & departmental officials need to be ensured for creating awareness.
  • Funds required for completion of the State Level Training Academy, Raipur (Approximately Rs 60.00 lakh).
  • Central funds are also required for Kisan Melas & exhibitions for which proposal is being submitted.

Suggestions (Contd…..)

  • State has identified organic farming as a thrust area for the development of agriculture on sustainable basis.
  • It is urged that the Centre should lay down the parameters for organic fertilizer so that the quality factor is not compromised.
