17Action Plan for Rabi and Summer 2014-15 (NFSM Wheat & Pulse) In Rabi season availability of latest varieties of wheat, seed is only 7% of total requirement for subsidy.District officials are instructed to plan for maximum demonstrations as well as seed distribution out of available new variety seed.Tender procedures for procurement of inputs like micronutrients, pp chemicals, weedicide, IPM, Gypsum etc. are completed by GAICEmpanelment of Farm Mechanization components are completed.Online Applications for Farm Mechanization components are under processing and at payment stage.Rabi krishi Mahotsav- Kisan Kalyan Melas planned in Dec-2014
18Learning from implementation of Coarse Cereals component To sustain the area and promote coarse cereals, well performing popular notified private research varieties of maize / Bajra may be allowed for demonstration with recommended package of practices.Comparison of private varieties can be done with notified / certified varieties.Farmers can get wide choice in selecting varieties.Farmers learned to adopt use of micronutrientsArea of hybrid maize is increasing

20Reason for shortfall in achievement under NFSM 2014-15 El-nino effect on monsoon- Late onset of monsoon, Erratic, irregular and inadequate monsoon observedLong dry spell in mid season, early withdrawal of monsoonDiversification in cropping pattern like Groundnut decrease by 15 %, pulses decrease by 22 %, cotton increase by 11 %, Bajara decrease by 50 %, Jowar decrease by 18 % and Maize decrease by 15 % during Kharif 2014.Farmers provides poor packages to pulse crops due to their low profitabilityNon availability of <10 year old variety seeds
21Reason for shortfall in achievement under NFSM Kharif -14 Contd….. Procurement of micronutrient was late due to delay in tender procedureFarm mechanization components of the scheme were empaneled by the department and the empanelment procedure was delayed in early season, so the subsidy for this component is till not paid.State Government has initiated ikisan portal and farmers have to apply on line to get assistance in any component of the any schemes. No farmers were allowed to do physical applications so very few online applications were received.In ikisan portal, Initially extension functionaries, input dealers and farmers were less acquainted with new system which resulted in poor progress.
22Reasons for Probable Poor achievements (NFSM in Rabi – 2014-15 ) …… Reasons for Probable Poor achievements (NFSM in Rabi – ) …….(Contd…..)Seed age limit criteria: the wheat seed of <10Yrs. new varieties are available in limited quantity. (7 % only)The farmers have not accepted <10 yrs. old wheat varietiy Viz. GW-366 (2009)

25Reasons for Probable Poor achievements (NFSM in Rabi – 2014-15 ) …… Reasons for Probable Poor achievements (NFSM in Rabi – ) …….(Contd…..)The gram sown on conserved moisture will decrease because of poor rain in sep-14 and early withdrawal of monsoonThe gram area will decrease due to less remunerative market price which do not attract farmersCrop diversification will be observed in place of gram in irrigated areas e.g. cumin & corianderVery low quantity (68%) of water in most of reservoirs in state e.g. North Gujarat 52%, Saurashtra region 39% and in Kutch region 11%. will restrict area under wheat and other rabi pulse crops.
26Future Strategy for better achievement State is hopeful for new variety of wheat GDW-1255 released in During rabi GSSC has taken seed program for Rabi to supply 10,000 quintal of certified seed in next year.Moong variety Meha –is replacing GM-4, seed program is plannedState has implemented new innovative scheme under RKVY through GSSC to popularize newly state released varieties of major crops by producing labled seed and distribute among farmers as demonstration for period two years or till notification, which will help to promote variety in field and after notification immediately can go on mass multiplication in seed chain.
27Future Strategy for better achievement….(contd…2) To overcome the problem of non acceptance SAU varieties by the farmers, GSSC has initiated trials comprising good varieties of ICAR/Other states and tested them in Gujarat condition on farmers field and after getting farmers’ opinion, GSSC bring them in seed chain to provide quality seed to farmers. The examples are as underHybrid Maize CO-6 (Variety of Tamil Nadu)Hybrid Maize HQPM -1 (Variety of ICAR)Hybrid Bajra MPMH-17 (Variety of ICAR)Mustard - NRCHB-101 (Variety of ICAR)Hy. Paddy – CORH (Variety of Tamil Nadu)
28Future Strategy for better achievement….(contd…3) To overcome the problem of timely supply of inputs , farm implements, equipment's, tractors and water caring pipes etc., State Dept. of Agriculture has called suppliers for EoI and empanelment procedure is now almost completed, the benefits are-Inputs for subsidy will available at competitive ratesFrom trusted, authenticated suppliersWith good quality and timely supplyAt farmers door step from GAIC retail ABCWith full transparencythrough online application
