1 EXPERIENCES OF RURAL BIO-RESOURCE COMPLEX PROJECT IN INTENSIFICATION OF SMALL FARM HOLDINGS Dr.K.Narayana Gowda Principle Investigator & Vice Chancellor University of Agricultural Sciences GKVK, Bangalore – 560 065 Dr.K.C.Narayana Swamy Prof. & Project Coordinator Dr.S.V.Suresh Assoc. Professor Coordinator, Bakery Training Unit Mr. Babu RM Ray Asst. Professor

2 Escalation in cost of production resulting reduced profit margin Inadequate information support system Decline in soil fertility and productivity Inadequate market facility and lack of scientific price for produce Depletion of ground water and environmental degradation Division and fragmentation of land holdings Unorganized farming sector FACTORS CONTRIBUTED FOR DECLINE IN THE ECONOMY OF THE FARMERS Leading to apathy, loosing interest among farmers particularly present day rural youth in farming and migration to urban areas – in extreme cases suicide

24 DBT has replicated this model in North Eastern States Litchi Growers Associations have been established in Bihar on the lines of Commodity Based Associations Karnataka Government has earmarked Rs.75 crores for replication of RBRC model in all 29 KVKs in Karnataka covering 1.25 lakh ha during 2011-12 to 2013-14 Govt. of Meghalaya and Andhra Pradesh have approached the University to provide technical know-how to replicate this model in their states. SPREAD OF TECHNOLOGY / REPLICATION OF THE MODEL

25 Increased Productivity Increased Income Employment Generation RBRC MODEL Promotion of Appropriate Interventions Effective Information Support System Effective Functional Linkage Marketing support Providing Critical Inputs Nutritional Intake Better Education Improved Housing Leadership Social Status Social Mobility Communication Skills Improved Standard of Living Commodity Based Associations STRATEGIES INITIAL BENEFITS LONGTERM BENEFITS

26 CONCLUSION The model has the special feature of intensification of small farmers through IFSD approach and ensures end-to-end approach without leaving any issues for chance factor. The chances of success of improving productivity and income are certain in the process of sustainable development of small farmers. Hence the RBRC model evolved and tested could be replicated or scaled up across the country with some modifications or refinements to suit different agro-ecological situations with varied resource base of the farmers.
