1 INTRODUCTION Goal is to attain self sufficiency in Foodgrains by 2009-10. Foodgrains production anticipated to be increased to 7.00 Lakh MT in 05-06 from 5.13 Lakh MT in 1999-00 ( before Perspective Plan). Certified seed production increased to 3700 MT in 2005-06 from 280 MT in 1999-00 ( before Perspective Plan). Hybrid Paddy seed (KRH –II, DRRH-I) production increased to 10 MT in 2005-06.
2 1. STRATEGY FOR ENHANCEMENT OF CROP PRODUCTION Supply of certified seeds to the farmers. Balanced Use of Fertilizers. Improvement in irrigation water use efficiency. Improvement of Cultural Practices (SRI, ICM, Hybrid).
3 STRATEGY (contd..) Adequate flow of credit. Gearing up of extension activities through ATMA Ensuring peoples participation through Panchayet. Growth rate in foodgrains production in 2005-06 over 2004-05 is 12% & targeted growth in 2006- 07 over 2005-06 is 9%.
4 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS 2.1 SEED PLAN: Thrust given for Certified Seed Production through Seed Village concept. SRR increased from 2.8% in 99-00 to 26% in 2005- 06. Target for 2006-07 is 33%. Hybrid Paddy Seed production in farmers field and Govt. farms.
5 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS (CONTD…) 2.1 SEED PLAN ( CONTD..) States requirement to be met by own production. Pulses & Oilseeds seed production in farmers field through Seed Village concept.
6 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS (CONTD…) 2.2 Integrated Nutrient Management Target for Per hectare use of NPK 2006-07 is 60 Kg against 45 Kg of 2005-06.
7 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS (CONTD…) 2.2 Integrated Nutrient Management (Contd..) Use of Bio-fertilizer has also been increased. Establishment of 3 more production units.
8 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS (CONTD…) 2.3 INTEGRATED PEST MANAGEMENT: IPM concept gaining popularity through 288 Farmers Field Schools. Demand for Bio-agents increasing. Bio-agents produced in the State Bio-control Lab sold to farmers.
9 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS (CONTD…) 2.4 AGRICULTURAL MECHANIZATION: Encouraging farmers for more use of agriculture implements.
10 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS (CONTD…) 2.5 Modern Farming Practices New technology like SRI & ICM are being popularized. Thrust given on Improved Jhum cultivation.
11 2. TIMELY AVAILABILITY OF QUALITY INPUTS (CONTD…) Modern Farming Practices (Contd.) Hybrid paddy cultivation has been undertaken in Farmers field
12 3. INITIATIVE FOR INCREASING INVESTMENT IN AGRICULTURE Dovetailing the resources from NREGP/SGSY/SGRY/PDF Increase the Plan allocation in Agriculture by 7.5% in 2006-07 over 2005-06. Irrigation potential increased to 29% from 13% in 1999-00.
13 3. INITIATIVE FOR INCREASING INVESTMENT IN AGRICULTURE(Contd..) FLOW OF CREDIT TO AGRICULTURE: Gram Panchayet wise list of eligible farmers given to banks for issuing KCC. Only 25880 nos. of KCC distributed during last three years. Banks are to be more proactive for issuing KCC. Jhumia farmers has to be given KCC for which norms to be relaxed.
14 4. CROP DIVERSIFICATION Special thrust given for pulses (Moong, Blackgram, Lentil) and oilseeds (Sesamum, Rape & Mustard, Ground Nut) seed production in the farmers field. Horticulture : Vegetables, Cashew nut, Black Pepper, Amla
15 5. AGRICULTURE EXTENSION NETWORK ATMA Training of Master trainers, AES Team completed. Preparation of SREP going on. Conversion of Primary & Secondary data is at final stage. SEWP to be completed shortly.
16 6. MARKETING REFORMS Steps taken for amendment of Tripura Agricultural Produce Market Act, 1980 incorporating the provisions as per guidelines given in the Model Act. Draft amendment Bill to be placed before the Cabinet for consideration.
17 MARKETING (Contd.) Hub for supply of quality seeds of paddy, pulses, oilseeds for N.E.States. MoU with NSC & NAFED for marketing of certified & Hybrid paddy seeds.
18 7. RISK MANAGEMENT Insurance coverage on notified crops viz. Paddy & Potato being given to protect farmers from inclement of weather. Support price of Potato is declared by the State Govt. to protect farmers from distress sale.
