11 III. Expenditure under State as well as Central Programmes supporting to Foodgrain production
Releases & expenditure particulars and (as on September-12) (Rs in lakhs)

12 IV. New Innovations / Initiatives – Andhra Pradesh
a) Promotion of SRI Active campaign by extension staff in all the districts for promoting SRI cultivation except in command areas and problematic soils Intensive training to extension staff, farmers and Labour. Establishment of Steering Committee at State Level

Documentation of Success stories 4175 Drum Seeders supplied on 50% subsidy 3325 Conoweeders supplied on 50% subsidy.

14 Traditional (Rs) Method Savings due to mechanisation
Supply of High Cost Machinery under RKVY High cost machinery like Paddy Transplanters, Rice Combine Harvesters, Highly Automated Threshers etc. are supplied to farmer groups by allowing Rs lakhs subsidy per unit. A revolutionary change in harvesting of Paddy crop was witnessed. This intervention also help the farmers to get their produce even during erratic conditions without loss of income. The combine harvester is used for about days by the groups and realizing 50% profit by hiring The saving is nearly Rs per hour on hiring combine harvester Reduction in cost of cultivation in various farm operations. S.No. Operation Traditional (Rs) Method Mechanized (Rs.) cost Savings due to mechanisation Remarks 1 Field Preparation 2000 1200 800 The labour cost and cultural practices for paddy cultivation varies from district to district on local prevailing rate of wages of labour. Mechanized Paddy cultivation is the future necessity to over come the shortage of labour and timely operation is possible only by mechanized machine and reduction in drudgery. 2 Nursery Preparation 200 400 -200 3 Transplanting 700 1400 4 Weeding 1500 500 1000 5 Harvesting and threshing Total expenditure In traditional method Rs 8700/- Through mechanisation Rs 4300/- Savings Rs 4400 /-

16 New Initiatives in Farm Mechanization
Yantra Laxmi (Farm Mechanization Exhibitions) Establishment of Custom hiring Stations Post Harvest Procurement Center at Gram Panchayat level Direct sowing drum seeders (Fibre body) were introduced on large scale in the state to mitigate erratic rainfall during Kharif Season.

17 ATMA Active involvement of Krishi Vignyan Kendras (KVKs) in preparation of SREP, Extension Work Plans, addressing short term research issues and also in implementation of various programmes in the field. The KVK Scientists to advise the Block Technology Teams and to actively involved in preparation of BAPs, especially with regard to research related issues/gaps and strategies. Convergence through integration of CDAPs and District Agriculture Action Plans (DAAPs), the State Extension Work Plan becomes the integral part of State Agriculture Plan and the same has to be approved by State Level Sanctioning Committee (SLSC) under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY).

18 b) Intercropping of pulses
The Normal area under pulses is lakh ha. Targets were allotted for increasing intercrop area of pulses under Groundnut, Jowar, Maize and Cotton etc. During an area of ha have been brought additionally under pulses through intercropping.

19 Progress under 60000 pulse villages and INSIMP
Out of 628 units 54 units have been allotted to ITDA tribal PACS Construction of Farm Ponds INSIMP Area under Korra crop increased in Kurnool district Productivity of Jowar, Ragi, Korra & Sama increased in all INSIMP districts New cropping pattern of Korra+Redgram or Korra+Bengalgram developed
