HORTICULTURE National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme-AP HORTICULTURE
OBJECTIVE To enhance rural livelihood security for small and marginal farmers of BPL families by providing 100% assistance to develop horticulture plantation.
Implementation Convergence of NREGS-AP of Rural Development and State Horticulture Mission (SHM) of Horticulture depts.(implementation and monitoring machanisms till village level-RD and technical knowledge-Hort)
Amendment to NREGA(shedule I para(iv) Provision of irrigation facility, Horticulture plantation and Land Development facilities on land owned by house holds belonging to SCs, S.Ts or B.P.L families or to beneficiaries of land reforms or to the beneficiaries under the IAY.
Criteria for Selection of Farmers Small and Marginal farmers, preference to SC,ST farmers and assignees(atleast 50%) Land with irrigation source. Villages with proximity to markets & nurseries. Cluster approach Max. limit for assistance is 5 acres per farmer Assistance for only one fruit crop.
Non negotiables Target group – SC, ST, BPL families, beneficiaries of land reforms and IAY of GOI. Cluster based approach. Approval of farmers list in Gram sabha. Adherence to seasonality for plantation, distribution and utilization of inputs. Plantation with at least 75% survival at the end of 1 st year-eligible for 2 nd maintenance. At the end of 2 nd year at least 90% survival -eligible for 3 rd year maintenance.
ASSISTANCE (Convergence with NHM) NREGS-AP Soil testing Ploughing Pit Digging Live Fencing Compost Pits(1 per acre) Plant Material(25%) &Transport Filling of pits & Planting Inter-cultivation (weeding,basin formation,soil working,applicatin of manures,fertilizers,pesticide s etc., 30% drip irrigation including trench cutting NHM Plant Material(75%) Manure and Fertilizers Micro Nutrients. Plant Protection Irrigation Intercrop APMIP 70% drip irrigation
Responsibilities RURAL DEVELOPMENT Identification of farmers Approval of proposal in grama sabha Administrative santion under NREGS shelf of works issuing of work commencement letters muster rolls maintenance Payment as per NREGS guidelines HORTICULTURE Training of farmers Technical guidence field staff & farmers Identifaction of nurseries Supply of inputs
Implementation Structure - Horticulture Programme DPC PD MIPAddl. DPC PO, ITDA Addl. DPC PD, DWMA AD Hort. Add.Prog. Officer Progr/Plt. Manager or Supervisor MPDO 3 TAs Field Assistant Para worker Farmers Organized into Common Interested Groups Dist. Level Mandal Level Village Level Horti.Offi cer Project Horti.Office rss MI Engineers Area Coordinators
Common Interest Groups (CIGs) 10 to 20 farmers form a CIG.(CIG functions similar to SHGs) One estimate for each CIG. Para worker selected from among the farmers by the members. PW trained on all aspects of plantation. PW liaison between farmers and programme officers. PW paid for the technical services @Rs.20/acre. Maintain records for the advances given to the CIG and submission of vouchers and adjustment of advances. Ensures timely activities (seasonality) and inputs availability.
Procurement of plant material Enlisting Govt & private nurseries Keep saplings ready Handing over the list of nurseries to farmers Farmers purchase seedlings. Procurement of fertilizers and plant protection material AP-AGROS / Markfed Para worker place the indent
Estimate generation In a village Different estimates for different crops Different estimates for each CIG(each estimate is considered as one work ie.,No of works=No of CIGs) Types of estimates available for four fruit crops(Mango,S.orange,sapota and cashew) EGS only EGS+MIP EGS+SHM+MIP EGS+SHM Dryland Hort -Mango Dryland Hort -cashew
Records and registers Village Plantation register(CIG wise ie., workwise) Calender of activities monitoring register CIG Cash book Ledger Minutes and resolution book Stock register Farmer Farmer card
Fund flow Pit digging and compost pits-labour(muster roll,labour accounts) All other activities-CIG account(joint account of para worker and CIG member). Amount is released as advance to the CIG in instalments. 1 st instament to be adjusted before claiming 2 nd instalment. Vouchers to be submitted once in a fortnight after activity is completed. Without adjustment progress is not seen in web reports. Micro irrigation(drip) is must as far as possible.

Issues – 2007-08 Plantations Adjustment of advances – Progress not reflected. Poor MIP installation – Survival problem. Non payment for other tasks Record maintenance Training to farmers and Paraworkers CIG-group dynamics and decision making FA & TA in monitoring Review by MPDOs & APOs – Monday meetings Field inspections – Survival Technical trainings and Guidance through Horticulture Officers, MIP Area Coordinators, Plantation Managers and Supervisors.
2008-09 Plantations (cont…) Salient features Non-negotiables, criteria for selection of farmers and other principles - instructions issued earlier Plant material tie up - Priority to Government nurseries Private nurseries after exhausting from Govt. nurseries Follow norms already given for plant material procurement Pulp wood and Oil Palm plantation - firm advance tie up for marketing should be made before taking up the plantation. Plantation shall be taken up only in blocks, each block not less than 50 acres. Pulp wood plantation shall be encouraged only in dry lands.
2008-09 Plantations (cont…) Timely supply of inputs for the NHM components. Cluster approach. MIP installations immediately after pit digging. Common Interest Groups (CIGs).
Plant Material Tie-up Govt. nurseries – list of nurseries, plant material available and lifting detailed circular issued. Private nurseries – Plant material to be procured from private nurseries communicated. Districts to identify nurseries and plant material available within the districts. In case of shortage - Nurseries outside the districts to be identified in coordination with that PD, DWMA to avoid shortages and last minute surprises.
