National Institute of Biotic Stress Management to be set up in state

Raipur: National Institute of Biotic Stress Management will soon be set up in Chhattisgarh. This proposal, forwarded by Chief Minister Dr Raman Singh, has been approved by Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar. Pawar has agreed in principle on the first installment of Rs 100 crore. This will be Chhattisgarhs first central agricultural institute. It will also be a deemed to be university, where students will be able to gain higher education.The state had been trying to set up a national level research centre for a long time. The institute will research on prevention of pests.

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) approved the establishment of National Institute of Biotic Stress Management in 2010. For the purpose, a team from Delhi came to the state. The team hunted for a suitable plot of land for the establishment of the institute. Baronda Farm, situated near Raipur, was chosen for it. At present, the research centre of the Indira Gandhi Agricultural University is built on Baronda Farm. The state government has allotted 105 acres of land for the institute in Baronda, about 25 km from Raipur.With the establishment of the institute, the areas that are rich in biodiversity will be given importance. It will study about the pests that tend to protect crops. The PhD and PG courses will also be offered in the institute. In Chhattisgarh, there is no agricultural institute, but almost all states have their own central institute. Agricultural scientists say that the opening of the institute will help farmers to better diagnose problems related to crops. The scientists will find ways to solve problems the farmers of the state face.

Experts assess technology use by Nalbari farmers

NALBARI, May 1 – A high level experts team constituted by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) to evaluate the five-year works of Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs) under the agricultural universities, visited Nalbari district on Thursday to assess the latest technologies implemented in the agriculture sector to increase productivity.
The national experts team headed by agri scientist Dr PG Chengappa, who is the former Vice Chancellor of Bangalore Agricultural University visited the paddy fields of Adabari areas under Mukalmua agricultural circle in Nalbari district. In that village a total of 48 progressive farmers have been engaged in raising Luit variety of paddy covering an area of 187 bighas under the scheme of technology showcasing supported by Nalbari Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK).

The experts team also interacted with the farmers like Sahjahan Ali, who first started cultivation of Luit variety of paddy at the locality in 2005. The area coverage of Luit was only 10 bighas in 2005, but it gradually increased to 162 bighas in 2006-07, 653 bighas in 2007-08, 954 bighas in 2008-09 and 1418 bighas in 2009-10.

Earlier, the farmers of this flood-prone area cultivated another long duration variety Jaya, which is now replaced by short duration Luit by Nalbari KVK. Farmers Sahjahan Ali and Prabin Medhi told the experts team that as Luit is a short duration variety, irrigation facilities and farmers involvement is very less. At the same time they were getting high net return of Rs 12,686 per hectare in comparison to Rs 10,031 earlier in regard to Jaya cultivation.

Two other members of the high-level experts team were agri specialists Dr KK Jindal and Dr YPS Dabas. The team was assisted by Dr AK Gogoi, zonal project director of ICAR, Shillong and Dr BC Bhowmick, director of extension education of Assam Agricultural University, Jorhat.

Earlier, the team visited the fields of Nagaon, Jorhat, Golaghat, Kamrup and Barpeta districts and reviewed technology implementation in the agriculture sector. Later, Dr PG Chengappa, who was the chairman of the team said that they were satisfied with technology implementation in the State agriculture sector. We are morally responsible for providing it to the farmers in order to boost their agri production. Dr Chengappa added. He assured that the ICAR will take all possible steps to reach the remotely located farmers through the KVKs set up all over the country. Dr Chengappa also lauded the role of Nalbari KVK in mobilising the farmers for the latest technologies.

It may be mentioned here that special initiative was taken by Dr Manoranjan Neog, co-ordinator of Nalbari KVK and scientists Dr Ramani Thakuriya, Dr Mridul Deka and Jayanta Sarma in polularising two paddy varieties, i.e, Ranjit and Luit in Nalbari district. According to Dr Ramani Thakuria Nalbari KVK supplied seeds and fertilizers to the farmers to cultivate Luit paddy and the produce would by purchased by AAU, Jorhat as certified seeds.

Call for conservation of NE horticultural germplasms

GUWAHATI, June 19 – The State has laid stress on inducting a mission mode approach by the Union Government to document and conserve the diverse and unique horticultural germplasms available not only in Assam but also in other parts of the NE region before they get extinct due to overexploitation or negligence.

It also called for measures to set up one sub-centre of the Sikkim-based National Research Centre for orchids at Guwahati to deal with the tropical orchidsavailable locally in the region in abundance. The above assertions were made by the State in its presentation before the Planning Commissions Working Group on Horticulture and Plantation Crops at its second meeting held here recently, for preparing the draft plan on horticulture and plantation crops for the 12 th Five Year Plan period. At the meeting, former director of States Horticulture Department Dr Harshajyoti Barooah had made the presentation on behalf of the State.

Barooah reminded the members of the Working Group that the NE region is regarded as the breeders paradise. Steps for strengthening horticultural data base, associating and strengthening Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) system, particularly State Agriculture University and their network of KVKs for production of elite planting materials to make it easily available to farmers were also called for in the presentation.

Besides, Dr Barooah also raised the issues like fine tuning the Comprehensive District Action Plan(C-DAP) under Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana keeping in view the long-term marketing scenario, encouraging new generation farmers with infrastructure support for scientific post-harvest handling and marketing of perishable horticultural produces along with their capacity building.

In the meeting, the Assam Agricultural University also urged to set up a centre of excellence in post-harvest handling of horticultural crops, setting up a regional training centre in tea production, processing and management of small scale sector to cater to the needs of 67,000 small tea growers, covering 1,20,000 hectares, besides other vital issues, said a press release.

It needs mention here that the Planning Commission of the Government of India is holding regional feedback meetings to frame draft plan for horticulture and plantation crops for execution during the 12th plan period between 2012 and 2017.
