  15. Regional Variation in Productivity of Cereals (tons / ha)

  16. Rice: Thrust Areas and Required Interventions Major States: W B( 5.8 m ha, 14.86 m.t.); U.P: (5.6 m ha,11..13 m.t.); Orissa: (4.5 m ha,6.75 m. t.)A.P.: (4.0 m ha ,11.69 m.t.); Punjab( 2.6 m ha, 10..19 m.t.), Hary: ( 1.05 m ha,3..21 m.t.)

  17. SYSTEM OF RICE INTENSIFICATION (SRI) METHOD -Alsoknown as ‘Medagaskar’ system - 10-12 days old seedlings are transplanted - Flooding of land avoided. A wet and dry cycle is followed at interval to maintain soil moisture - Weed management through harrow /rotavation/ weedicides - Channels are prepared after every 10 to 15 m for drainage - Can be easily adopted in assured irrigated areas in all States

  18. IDENTIFIED POTENTIAL DISTRICTS (100) FOR ENHANCING PRODUCTIVITY OF RICE

  20. Thrust Areas and Interventions Required for Wheat Major States: U.P.(9.2 m ha ,23.57 m.t.); Punjab: ( 3.5 m ha,14.49 m.t.); Haryana: (2.3 ha, 8.88 m.t.); M.P. (3.7 m ha, 5.96 m.t.); Raj (2.1 m ha ,5.86 m.t.); Bihar (2.0 m ha,3.66 m.t.); Mah (1.1 m ha,1.45 m.t.)

  21. Progress of sowing of wheat during 2006-07 Weekly growth (%) 2006-07 29.53 2005-06 40.43 2006-07 2005-06

  22. Further Action for Varietal Development and Agronomic practices in Wheat • Development of new varieties that are terminal heat tolerant • Development of suitable varieties with higher yield potential replacing currently grown varieties in areas like Punjab & Haryana i.e. PBW 343 • Development of early maturing cotton varieties in cotton-wheat system to enable farmers in timely sowing of wheat • Development of Agronomic practices to mitigate the fluctuating / high temperature during crop season.

  23. Strategy for Pulses Production • Short term measures :Area Expansion : 2 Million ha • Intercropping withMaize, cotton, Sugarcane, Groundnut and soybean with Tur, blackgram and greengram • Target Fallow land : Kharif Fallow, Rice Fallows, Summer / Spring season • Introduce short duration Varieties in existing cropping systems i.e. Tur in Rice - Wheat rotation in Western U.P., Punjab, Haryana • - Increase area under short duration pigeon pea in Maharashtra, Gujarat, M.P., Karnataka, A.P. and T.N

  24. Targeted Area Expansion of Pulses in Potential States Kharif Pigeon Pea :M.P. 1.0 Lha, U.P. 0.56 Lha, Bihar 0.25 Lha, Orissa 0.5 Lha, Maharashtra 1.0 Lha, A.P. 0.50 Lha, Karnataka 0.5 Lha, Chattisgarh 0.2 Lha, Gujarat 0.5 Lha. Green Gram/ Blackgram:U.P. 1.20 Lha, Rajasthan 1.5 Lha, Maharashtra 2.7 Lha, Karnataka 1.5 Lha, A.P. 1.0 Lha, Orissa 0.2 Lha, Tamil Nadu 0.5 Lha. Rabi : Gram:M.P: 2.0 Lha, U.P. 1.0 Lha, Rajasthan 1.0 Lha, Maharashtra 0.5 Lha, A.P. 1.50 Lha, Chattisgarh 0.25 Lha, Orissa 0.2 Lha, Bihar 0.5 Lha, Tamil Nadu 0.5 Lha. Lentil :M.P. 0.2 Lha, U.P. 0.5 Lha, Bihar 0.5 Lha. Kharif : 1.4 million ha ; Rabi :0.8 million ha

  25. STRATEGY FOR ENHANCING PRODUCTIVITY OF PULSES (i)Targetseed replacement rate from 30 to 35 % (ii) A National Campaign for seed treatment with fungicide and Rhizobium culture (Both liquid and solid base) to enhance productivity by 10 to 15% (iii) Ridge planting in Eastern States and black soils of Southern States (iv) Application of phosphatic fertilizers and need based micro-nutrients i.e boron, zinc and sulphur (v) Minimize losses from pod borer damage through effective IPM (Bio-pesticides/pesticides/inter cropping) (vi) Promote sprinkler irrigation to provide one or two life saving irrigation

  26. STRATEGY FOR QUALITY SEEDS PRODUCTION OF PULSES * Double the quality seed in next 3 years. * Target 30% increase in breeder seed in 2007-08 * Incentives for seed production and distribution to be raised to 50% from 25%. * Involve private sector and extend necessary support for infrastructure for pulses seed production. * Other agencies like NAFED, IFFCO to scale up seed production of pulses.

  27. Exploitable yield reservoir in Oilseeds IT= Improved Technology; FP= Farmer’s Practice; NA= National average.

  28. INTERVENTIONS REQUIRED FOR OILSEEDS • SOYBEAN AND GROUNDNUT: Soybean area 7.5 m ha • Groundnut area 7 m ha • Enhance seed replacement rate to 30% • (ii) Seed treatment with fungicides and Rizhobium culture as major initiative • (iii) Promote the use of sulphur and phasphatic fertilizers • (iv) Timely planting using seed cum ferti drill • Intercrop pigeon peawith soybean and groundnut to enhance per unit return • IPM for pest management

  29. Cotton: Causes for low productivity and required interventions Major States: Guj. (2.08 m ha, 8.9 m.b) Mah. (2.89 m ha, 3.6 m.b), A.P.,(1.04 m ha, 3.0 m.b) Pun, (0.56 m ha, 2.1 m. b)

  30. SUITABLE INTERCROPPING IN COTTON

  31. Sugarcane: Causes for low productivity and required interventions Major States: U.P.,(2.16 m ha, 121.53 m t) Mah,(0.54 m ha 36.20 m t ) TN,(0.34 m ha, 36.62 m t) Guj, (0.20 m ha, 14.77 m t )

  32. Thrust areas for Maize, Sorghum and Pearl millets: (30 million ha area) * Promote single cross hybrids for higher productivity in maize * Promote Ridge Planting in Eastern India * Promote short duration hybrids in place of local varieties in pearl millets and sorghum * Use broad bed furrow system specially in black soils for better management of water * Increase area under maize in hill States, U.P., Bihar, T.N., A.P and Punjab

  33. Jute Technology Mission (JTM): 2006 Objective: To increase production and quality of jute and allied fiber States Covered: 10 States viz.; A.P. , Assam ,Bihar, Meghalaya,Orissa, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Tripura. Important components and Funding Pattern (90: 10) Production &supply of seeds Demonstration on production , IPM & retting technology Training of farmers & extension workers Supply of farm implements / sprayers Creation of retting facilities Setting up of de-gumming & de-corticating units for ramie

  34. Over all Thrust Areas for Kharif 2007 (i)Develop a strategy to fully exploit the potential of different agro-climatic regions to increase production of kharif crops in general and rice in particular (ii) Bring additional 2 million ha area under pulses through intercropping and use of fallow lands (iii) A planned approach forSeed production of newly released hybrids of rice and maize (iv) Promotion of ridge furrow system of planting specially in black soils (v) Adopt seed treatment as a major initiative to ensure early crop growth (vi) Rigorous measures and monitoring to ensure quality of input i.e. seed, pesticide , fertilizers (vii) Special emphasis for raising the productivity of Oilseeds and pulses through mission mode approach
