Pulses scenario…. Arunachal Pradesh require about 8.80 MT of pulses per day and appx.32000 MT(annual) presently as per WHO recommendation. By 2017, annual Pulses requirement shall be about 38000 MT Per capita availability out of state’s own production is 27g/ capita / day (32% of requirement) Present Pulses production is appx.10000 MT (68% deficit) Production level to be achieved at least at 30000MT by 2017 strategy for enhanced Pulse production Appx.20000 ha Rice fallow to be brought under Rabi Pulses (Lentil,Pea,Green Gram, Bengal Gram) Pulse productivity to be enhanced to 15 qtl ha-1 from present 10 qtl ha-1 by varietal replacement & better crop management.

OIL SEEDS Strategy for enhanced Oilseeds production • Area expansion under Mustard • Promote Sunflower,Soyabean & sesamum cultivation in potential districts • About 5000 ha Rice fallow to be covered under Rabi Oilseeds • Provision of water conveyance pipes for irrigation during moisture stress conditions • Seed treatment and ICM to be ensured with involvement of KVKs • Liming to be encouraged • Demonstration on Zero tillage in Mustard
