AGRICULTURE AND ALLIED ACTIVITIES

1.1 CROP HUSBANDRY

1.1.1 Programme of the Agriculture Department 2011-12 is the closing year of five year plan period. The target set at the onset of this plan period to take the growth of Agriculture beyond 4%. Due to natural calamities like devastating AILA and coming of monsoon in latter part o f the Kharif season normal production of foodgrains crops o f the state has been hampered almost every year. The SDP at constant 1999-00 prices o f the agricultural sector in the State had a dip in 2008-09. It had experienced a fall by 1.90% during 2008-09 (Economic Review 2009-10). But in the year 2009-10 inspite of natural calamities like AILA the production and productivity o f wheat, pulses and oilseeds and potato have been increased resulting a positive gain in NSDP. During the year 2010-11 the monsoon is being delayed like previous years. But a scientific contingent planning has been framed for sustainable development of agricultural production.

During 2010-11 about Rs. 476.15 crore has been earmarked for Rashtriya Krishi Vikash Yojana & extending green revolution in eastern region o f the country aiming at bridging the gap between potential and actual yield. State Plan financial outlay is 228 crores. This may be mentioned that 172 blocks across the state registered lower productivity than state’s average productivity. Those blocks mainly situated at red lateritic, Tarai and Hilly region of the state dominated by the people of SC & ST communities.

Various plan programme are being taken in State plan and other centrally sponsored scheme to bridge the yield gap and sustainable development o f agriculture as a whole by decentralized participatory approach. A number o f skill development, capacity building training programme has been taken and also proposed for the year 2011-12. Plan for infrastructure development for quality seed production, agricultural research, seed, fertilizers and soil testing has also been chalked out. A detail soil survey work has been taken up by the department of Agriculture along with National Buro of Soil Survey for all the districts o f the state by drawing 76000 soil samples. Survey report o f 6 districts has already been published and report for rest of the districts will be published soon.

A sum of Rs. 2.88 crore is being utilized for setup o f around 288 nos. o f bio-village and Rs. 9.12 crore for preparation of compost pit for eco-friendly and sustainable agriculture which is a way to organic farming.

Seed village programme under PRI scheme and RKVY will also be continued for self sufficiency of seeds. During 2010-11 around 4000 seed village programme is now being implemented under district plan scheme. During 2011-12 the same scheme has been proposed to be continued.
Some major priority areas for 2011-12 ;1. Addressing problematic soils across the State a) Proposed area - Teesta - Tarai, Red & lateritic Zones, Coastal Zones & Gangatic
Alluvial Zone -

C hapter - One: A gricultu re and A llied A cti vitiies
b) Establishment of Vermi-compost & Super compost pit
2. Farm Mechanization and Technology Dissemination a) Distribution of farm Machinery(under Subsidy)
i. Distribution of Tractors Rs. 4,50,000/- per Tractor through PACs/SHGs/Farmeirs club.
ii. Distribution o f Power Tiller iii. Distribution of Zero Tillage Machine iv. Distribution of Rotavator b) Training and Demonstration
3. Seeds i) Seed Village - Establishment, of Seed villages
ii) Hybrid Seed Production Paddy -w ith subsidy on production & distribution Maize - Production of hybrid maize seed
iii) Varietal Replacement -new varieties o f cereals, pulses & oilseed will be replaced.

Object - Improving the crop productivity in different agro-ecological sub-regions of West Bengal
Proposed Area - Red & lateritic zone, Teesta - Tarai zone & Coastal Saline zone comprising land dev., set up. of WHS, Drainage channel -
Intervention
• Rain Water harvesting Structure • WasteLand Dev. • Renovation / Excavation of Existing Water Bodies • Land Shaping-cum Sweet Reservoirs • Clearance of drainage congestions • Dev. of Sand Laden Areas in Teesta - Tarai Region
For fulfilment of the demand of food security, self sufficiency in production, employment generation mainly in backward areas fund had been allocated to different infrastructure development, sustainable agriculture development, skill development and natural resource management schemes.
For improvement of productivity in North Bengal, Paschimanchal (mainly in lateritic / dry­ land) and Sundarban (coastal area) and for maintaining sustainable agriculture, plan has been chalked out for setting up of at least 10 numbers of organic farm (in Govt, farm), 100 numbers of bio-villages, seed village in each block, soil testing laboratory etc.
