AGRICULTURE DEVELOPMENT IN THE

EASTERN REGION

WORKSHOP TO REVIEW

STATE IMPLEMENTATION PLANS

WEST BENGAL

slide2

WEST BENGAL- LEADERSHIP POSITION

  • 1st position in - Rice, Jute, Brinjal,Cauliflower, Cabbage & Pineapple
  • 2nd position in - Potato & Litchi
  • 7th position in - Fruits
slide3

STRENGTHS

  • Comprehensive land reforms.
  • Vibrant 3-tier Panchayati Raj System.
  • High acreage (more than 93% of available land is under cultivation).
  • 4 cropping seasons for growing wide varieties of crop round the year:
    • Pre-Kharif
    • Kharif
    • Rabi
    • Rabi-Summer-Boro
  • Balance use of NPK : 2.3:1.3:1 (Best in the Country).
  • Well knit input distribution net work -
    • 38000 retail outlets in 41000 villages.
slide4

CONSTRAINTS

  • Cloudy sky and few sunshine hours during Kharif season.
  • Short and relatively non-persistent Winter spell.
  • Vast areas of North Bengal (approx. 27% ) under severe micro-nutrient stress.
  • Natural calamites (Flood, Drought & Cyclone) are regular phenomenon.
  • Several districts are drought prone – Bankura, Purulia, West Medinipur & Part of Burdwan &Birbhum. (Erratic rain fall and very low productivity).
slide5

ANNUAL GROWTH RATE OF YIELD (%)

  • N.B.:
  • Area, Production and yield rate figures of different crops corresponding to base year 2006-07 are actually the triennium average of three years, namely, 2004-05, 2005-06 and 2006-07.
  • Area, production and yield rate figures for the years 2010-11 and 2011-12 are year wise targets
slide6

CURRENT STATUS OF PRODUCTIVITY IN THE STATE VIS-À-VIS NATIONAL LEVEL

( Yield rate in Kg/ha. Jute – bales/ ha)

* Based on two years average ;

** Based on three years average (2006-09);

# Including Mesta

slide7

AGRICULTURE DEVELOPMENT IN EASTERN REGION - OVERALL STRATEGY

  • Bringing 172 below average productivity blocks to state average productivity level.
  • Enhancing productivity @ 2.5% per annum of remaining 153 blocks.
slide8

COMPONENTS OF STRATEGY

  • Enhancing Seed Replacement Rate (SRR)
  • Enhancing irrigation potential
    • Repair, renovation and restoration of existing derelict water bodies
    • Extension, modernization, repair & renovation of minor-irrigation sources
  • Land & Water Management
  • Waste Land Management
  • Rain Water Harvesting
  • Emphasis on farm mechanization in small and marginal holdings
  • Soil management
      • Integrated Nutrient Management
      • Special emphasis on organic manure
      • Addressing micro-nutrient deficiency
      • Leguminous crops in cropping sequence
      • Crop diversification
      • Encouraging intercropping/mixed cropping
slide10

TARGET FOR NPK CONSUMPTION (KG/HA.), IRRIGATION POTENTIAL (%), CROPPING INTENSITY (%) AND FARM MECHANIZATION

slide11

TARGET FOR CHANGE IN ACREAGE

(Gross cropped area as a % of net cultivable area)
