7 Though food grain production increased marginally from 418.65 lakh M.T in 2006-07 to 420.90 lakh M.T. in 2007-08, it increased appreciably to 454.25 lakh M.T. in 2008-09 against the planned target of 497.07 lakh M.T. During XIth plan it is targeted to achieve 538.25 lakh M.T. by 2011-12. Appropriate planning and strategies have been finalized to attain planned foodgrain production in the remaining three years. There have been lapses in achieving the production target of Pulses due to drought in Rabi 2007-08 and floods in Kharif 2008-09. Strategies have also been made to achieve XIth plan targets in the remaining three years. Achievements of First Two Years- An Analysis

33 Issues for Consideration of GOI 1.Seeds- - Adequate quantity of breeder seeds of Pulse and Oilseeds must be ensured. - Subsidy to be allowed on notified varieties of Hybrid Rice. - Subsidy on certified Seeds of Pulses must be enhanced from Rs. 1200 per quintal to 50% of actual cost. 2.Credit Flow- - Reduction of interest rate on crop loan from prevailing 7% to 4%. - Banks should appoint KCC agents which will help in issuing KCC to all the eligible farmers. 3.Setting Up of new Institute- - ICAR is establishing 3 institute on biotechnology, biotic stress and abiotic stress to face the emerging challenges. G.O.U.P. is prepared to provide space at Rahamenkhera, Lucknow and Mauranipur,Jhansi. 4.Fertilizers- - New railway rake points should be developed at broad gauge network at Jarwal Road, Robertsganj, Fafund, Gursahaiganj, Baghpat, Kasganj, khalilabad, Padrauna, Kaushambi, Chitrakoot, Hathras etc.
34 - Urgent need to increase no. of fertilizer buffers of IFFICO from existing 10 to 18, one each in every revenue division( Banda,(Jhansi,Allahabad, Azamgarh,Basti, Devipatan, Saharanpur Mathura.) - Policy of advance payment if MRP for the arrangement of of DAP should be reconsidered. The burden should not be on the state. 5.Farm Mechanization- - Subsidy of Rs. 20,000 for Rotavator in MMA to be made at par with Rs.30,000 provided in NFSM. - Subsidy should also be allowed on pumpsets of an 10 H.P in MMA as has been allowed in NFSM. 6.Quality Control- - One Bio-pesticides Quality Control, One Plant Quarantine Lab need to be established. - Three new fertilizer testing lab proposed in G.O.I funded NPMSF scheme. 7.Minimum Support Price- - MSP of crops specially Oilseed and Pulses to be declared before sowing season.
