5STATE SEED ROLLING PLAN STARTING FROM KHARIF-2013 States have started the preparation of Seed Rolling Plan for to from Kharif-2013But still Deficit in seed production has been observed in many states both in the current kharif and in the Planning for upcoming Rabi season alsoThe anticipated shortage of seeds may also be arranged production through different seed producing agencies in the forthcoming Rabi season itself.Dovetail with different schemes NFSM, ISOPOM, RKVY etc

12Phosphorous ‘P’ Nutrient Promote use of Phosphorous solublizing bio-fertilizers (PSB)Current production of bio-fertilizers as per recommended dose of bio-fertilizers (kg/hectare) can cover only 10% of total gross cropped area of our country.Convert 5% of DAP demand into SSP demand as SSP is indigenously produced and cheaper fertilizer compared to DAP. In Nutrient value , it provides extra value for Ca and SExpedite commercialization of efficient/futuristic technology such as nano –P(CAZRI)
13District-wise assessment of status of ‘K’ nutrient may be done Potash ‘K’ NutrientDistrict-wise assessment of status of ‘K’ nutrient may be doneDepending upon the status of ‘K’ nutrient, MOP may be appliedUse of ‘K’ solublizing bio-fertilizers may also be promoted
14Promotion of balanced use of fertilizers Consumption of Urea (‘N’) in some of the states such as PUNJAB, HARYANA, Uttar Pradesh, and Andhra Pradesh etc has increased beyond the dose recommended by ICAR/SAU whereas in some of the states, it is much below the recommended dose.

23Mechanization & Technology Outcomes of Zonal Conference&Recommendations for Rabi 2013
24Farm Mechanization: Key driver of productivity Agricultural productivity has positive correlation with level of farm mechanization
25Savings in fertilizers: 15-20%; Increase in cropping intensity: 5-20%; Estimated contributions of improved agricultural tools and equipment in augmenting total food productionSavings in seeds: 15-20%;Savings in fertilizers: 15-20%;Increase in cropping intensity: 5-20%;Increase in productivity per cent;Savings in time: 20-30%; andReduction in labour: 20-30%;
26FARM POWER AVAILABILTY IN TERM OF kW/ha (2010-11) States
2712th PLAN Shift of focus from Individual Ownership to CUSTOM HIRING ; Allow farmers to choose the implements/machinery as well as Manufacturer/model as per their choice.Promotion of use of IT Tools and application in distribution of subsidy. (Odisha Model)
28Plant Protection Kharif season- Pests situation Paddy Sheath Blight and leaf folderCotton White Fly and leaf curl Virus(CLCV)Soybean Hairy caterpillar, Spodoptera ,White flyThese crop pests were managed/controlled successfully and no significant economic loss was reported .
30Issues Related to Plant Protection 1. States should recommend pesticides usage in conformity with the terms of registration to ensure efficacy against pests and safety to humans and environment.2. States insecticides inspectors should be directed to draw samples from manufacturing units and retailers for analysis of quality.3. Bio-pesticides and less toxic/ environment friendly pesticides may be encouraged for use.
314. Biocontrol agents like Trichogramma species (10 nos) , Bracon species (3 nos),Chelonus species (2 nos), Sticholotis, Chilocorus spp. Amblysius ,Aphelinus mali, Neochetina species, Zygogramma bicolorata etc should be conserved and augmented in the laboratories.
32Issues in Bio products5. Bio-products being sold in market without registration and component details should be analyzed in notified laboratories. NIPHM Hyderabad has been notified along with 7 other laboratories for the purpose .6. Some of the states are yet to initiate NABL Accreditation of State Pesticides Testing Labs. This is required for quality assurance.
33Disposal of pesticides and their containers Disposal of used containers should be as per the instructions given on the label. States are requested to invest in awareness campaign in this regard.Safe disposal of date expired pesticides lying in stores of the States departments.Services of TSDF may be taken for disposal of such stocks in an environmentally safe manner.
34PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN FOOD and EXPORT CONSIGNMENTS States are informed about pesticides residues status in various agricultural commodities. IPM practices and awareness campaign for responsible use of pesticides is required.
