Major focus given by the States This is the first year ( ) of initiating of the NFSM programme in the State. Kharif programmes could not be managed properly as the approval of the programme was received after sowing of rice in hilly areas, even this, the following steps have been taken to accelerate the production programme. Training and awareness campaigning from State to Nyaya Panchayat level. Cluster demonstrations. Hybrid rice demo in 82 ha. Promotion of use of Laser land levelers (distribution of 28 out of 25). Soil Health Management with area coverage of 32 thousand ha under micro nutrients. Surveillance of pest and diseases on crops with area coverage 21 thousand ha under Plant Protection measures.
Application of Micro-Nutrients in Block Chaukhutia, Almora Cluster Demonstrations in Block Chaukhutia, Almora
A3P Programme under NFSM Programme is not approved for Uttarakhand. Physical and financial progress under 19+ million tons pulse programme. Only Rs 3. lakh are allotted for micro irrigation. This component is already under the National Mission on Micro Irrigation
Component Sanctioned Post In Position Remark Consul- tants TA Consul- tants TA Rice520-- Appointments could not be materialized because of non availbility of qualified persons on the prescribed honorarium. Wheat832-- Total In the meeting of State level NFSM-EC, it is decided to appoint students of Agriculture Universities as internship. Appointment of Project Management Team (PMT) in Districts
Concurrent Evaluation of NFSM Being the first year of the programme, concurrent evaluation work is not yet undertaken. Status of online submission of progress Report at State/District level Being the first year of the programme, online reporting is yet to start.
Savings of NFSM- rice is proposed for NFSM- Wheat. Sowing of rice in hilly area of Uttarakhand starts from Mid March therefore, approval on the Work Plan is required in Feb for so that programme may be initiated well in time. In case of hybrid rice clusters demonstration, the norms of the activities are same as for HYVs while the hybrid seed is much costlier than HYV seed. In this case a major portion of the investment will go to cost of seed. Cost of Hybrid seed of rice is very high, assistance on seed subsidy is 50% of the cost of hybrid seed. Under the programme “Implementation of Special Plan to achieve 19+ million tones of pulse production during kharif ” only drip irrigation/sprinkler programme is approved for the State. Other activities in A3P should be considered for Specific Issues and suggestions
Uttarakhand is a hilly state and specially in hilly districts area under wheat and rice crop is less than ha as norms set under NFSM. Relaxation is required in crop coverage area norms from ha to ha. Relaxation is required in basic qualifications and experience of technical consultants for deployment under the Project Management Team. Issues
Brief Overview of NFSM SAP has already been prepared on the basis of Comprehensive District Agriculture Plan (C-DAP) State and District level NFSM executive committees are organized for monitoring and review of the Scheme. NFSM-Rice component : Identified district-5 (Haridwar, Pauri, USNagar, Almora & Pithoragarh) and the total cost of the NFSM – Rice is Lakhs. NFSM–Wheat Component : Identified districts 8 (Haridwar, Dehradun, Pauri, Tehri, USNagar, Almora, Pithoragarh, & Nainital) and the total cost of the NFSM – Wheat is Rs Lakh.
