KAHRIF 2009 :The Weather Scenario

  • Assam normally receives about 1500 mm of rainfall during June – September.
  • As a result of high rainfall the State experiences 2-3 waves of flood every year.
  • During 2009 monsoon season, an unprecedented rainfall pattern has been observed in the State – both in terms of total rainfall and its spread.
  • The State has experienced drought situation since March, 2009.
  • The overall rainfall deficit in the State of Assam has been recorded as (-) 35% by 30th June, (-) 27% by 31st July, (-) 13% by 31st August and (-) 18% by 15th September, 2009.
  • Even though the deficit reduced to (-) 13% and (-) 18% by 31st August and 15th September, 2009, yet there was a wider variation in rainfall deficit in the various districts in the State ranging from (-) 20% to (-) 65%.
  • The State Government has declared all 27 districts as drought affected on 22nd July, 2009.

AFFECT OF DROUGHT

  • The deficit rainfall caused widespread damage to Kharif crops in the State.
  • Crop area of about 8.70 lakh hectares has been affected covering 15.95 lakh farm families in 15362 villages.
  • Winter (Sali) Paddy seedlings of 60,000 hectares have been affected by drought. In some areas Sali Paddy seedlings had to be raised more than once.
  • It has been estimated that 16.52 lakh hectares out of targeted 18.00 lakh hectares of Winter (Sali) Paddy area have been covered and 1.48 lakh hectares (8% of targeted area) remain uncovered during Kharif, 2009.

PROGRAMME IN DROUGHT AFFECTED AREAS

  • Immediate Measure in Kharif –
  • To run the diesel operated pump sets for life saving irrigation to standing crops, diesel has been distributed to the farm families having STWs / LLPs. Rs. 20.00 lakh has been provided to each of 27 districts for the purpose.
  • 600 nos. of mobile Low Lift Pump sets have been distributed to field for providing immediate irrigation to protect the standing crops.
  • Proposed programme in Rabi - Special programme on Rabi crops viz., Boro Paddy, Wheat, Maize, Lentil, Pea, Mustard and Potato to cover an area of 4.30 lakh hectares.

PREPAREDNESS FOR IMPLEMENTATION OF RABI PROGRAMME, 2009-10

  • Full Utilization of provisions of the schemes - NFSM-Rice, RKVY, Macro Management, Horticulture Mission, State Plan etc.
  • Institutional tie-up with ASC, NSC, RSG, NAFED and private agencies for streamlining flow of seeds taken up.
  • Seed Replacement Rate target has been fixed for Paddy at 40%, Mustard 51%, Wheat 64%, Maize 100%, Blackgram 100%, Greengram 88%, Peas 75%, Lentil 100% and Sesamum 20%.
  • For the ensuing Rabi season the consumption target of fertilizer has been kept at 100.0 Kg per hectare against consumption of 97.5 Kg per hectare during Rabi 2008-09.
  • Tie up arrangements have been finalized with fertilizer manufacturers both under ECA and decontrolled fertilizers to ensure timely availability of fertilizers to farmers. Fertiliser supply agencywise targets have been fixed.

CROPWISE STRATEGY FOR RABI, 2009-10

  • Rice :
  • Coverage of 100% area under HYV of Summer Rice.
  • Expansion of Summer Rice area to 5.75 lakh hectare from 3.60 lakh hectare.
  • Targeting additional production of 7.23 lakh MT.
  • Expansion of Rabi Foodgrain area by 3.50 lakh hectare.
  • Expansion of area under Hybrid Rice.
  • Promotion of varietal diversification.
  • Increasing Seed Replacement Rate to 40%.
  • Ensuring availability of quality Seeds & Fertilisers.
  • Popularizing new technologies like SRI, weed control methods.

  • Additional induction of machineries with support from Central and State support schemes and EAP to achieve desired status of 1.30 HP per hectare of farm power at the end of 11th Plan Period.
  • In addition to the existing farm power, it has been targeted to distribute 334 nos. of Tractors (under Asom Vikas Yojana / Assam Agricultural Competitiveness Project) and 727 nos. of Power Tillers (under RKVY / Assam Agricultural Competitiveness Project) during the remaining period of 2009-10.
  • New farm machineries like Rotavator, Reaper / Binder, Zero Tillage Planter & Combined harvester have been introduced.
  • Agricultural Engineering Workshops will be strengthened in phase manner for production of small machineries / equipments.

STRATEGY FOR RABI, 2009-10

Irrigation :

  • Full utilization of 4.02 lakh hectares of command area so far created by Agriculture Department through installation of 2.01 lakh STWs and LLPs under various schemes / programmes.

LLPs (under State Priority Scheme / Assam Agricultural Competitiveness Project / Horticulture Technology Mission) & 49 nos. DTWs (under RKVY) during the remaining period of the year.
  • Also, 3,500 hectares will be covered under Flow Irrigation under RKVY during the year.
  • 2,021 hectares have already been brought under Micro-irrigation Facility (Drip Irrigation) under Horticulture Technology Mission. Another 200 hectares will be covered under the scheme during remaining period of 2009-10.
