3 I. RESULTS OF CROP CUTTING EXPERIMENTS-SASA DES is designated as SASA (State Agricultural Statistics Authority) in APCrop cutting experiments are planned for 21 Principal crops every year (Kharif + Rabi) for estimating crop wise season wise production32802 crop cutting experiments planned during ( ) & experiments were analysed with a response of 96.35%.

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 SRIActive campaign by extension staff in all the districts for promoting SRI cultivation except in command areas and problematic soilsIntensive training to extension staff, farmers and Labour.Establishment of Steering Committee at State Level
13 ANGRAU, NABARD, DRR, ICRISAT and NGOs involved Documentation of Success stories4175 Drum Seeders supplied on 50% subsidy3325 Conoweeders supplied on 50% subsidy.
14 Traditional (Rs) Method Savings due to mechanisation Supply of High Cost Machinery under RKVYHigh 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 hiringThe saving is nearly Rs per hour on hiring combine harvesterReduction in cost of cultivation in various farm operations.S.No.OperationTraditional (Rs) MethodMechanized (Rs.) costSavings due to mechanisationRemarks1Field Preparation20001200800The 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.2Nursery Preparation200400-2003Transplanting70014004Weeding150050010005Harvesting and threshingTotal expenditureIn traditional methodRs 8700/-Through mechanisationRs 4300/-SavingsRs 4400 /-

16 New Initiatives in Farm Mechanization Yantra Laxmi (Farm Mechanization Exhibitions)Establishment of Custom hiring StationsPost Harvest Procurement Center at Gram Panchayat levelDirect sowing drum seeders (Fibre body) were introduced on large scale in the state to mitigate erratic rainfall during Kharif Season.
17 ATMAActive 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 PACSConstruction of Farm PondsINSIMPArea under Korra crop increased in Kurnool districtProductivity of Jowar, Ragi, Korra & Sama increased in all INSIMP districtsNew cropping pattern of Korra+Redgram or Korra+Bengalgram developed
20 V. Inter Departmental coordination ICRISAT, ANGRAU and DepartmentBhuchetana “Bridging Crop Yield Gaps through Science led Development in Andhra Pradesh”The objective is to increase productivity by 20% addressing Micronutrient Deficiency in five years.An amount of 5.43 crores is sanctioned under RKVY - Streem-2 –Taken up in 7 districtsResults are as follows:Paddy Grain yields increased by 31.4% in farmers fields with the application of micronutrients in Ranga Reddy district.Straw yield increased by 31%Sunflower Yield increased by 11.6% and Oil content increased by % in Kadapa district due to application of micronutrients.
