  • 2. ARM Annual Report 2011-12 From the Chairperson Column... SCALING UP INCLUSIVE AND GREEN PRODUCTIVITYAlternative for rural movement (ARM) has transformed in to a movement in Balasore districtand Odisha State in the recent years. The volume of development efforts are not the only criteriabut of mind to include the concerns that are interwoven and impede scale up.As an organisation being dedicated to the cause of women and children welfare, it has empha-sized on women empowerment, maternal and child health, child labour, girl trafficking and es-tablished a child help line for arresting child abuse. Womens collectives inform of SHGs havetaken a tough local stand to prevent such negations to happen thus ensuring a safe & securedrurality. Project support from esteemed ACA,Denmark, NABARD, Japan Consulate, MISEREOR,NRHM, Blue Door Foundation ,Give India ,Childline India Foundation ,Department of Agriculture,Govt. of Odisha, GlobeMed, Global Giving Foundation and Meheta Family Foundation, are praiseworthy in this regard. Observing the precarious referral services and health drives of the State department, ARMhas accepted the challenge of managing a model hospital under NRHM in a remote rural set upwhich has been a huge success in terms of users turn up cum maternity referral point. A ne-glected campus before hand has changes to a hube of around 30000 patients per year having280 maternity cases. Every effort is put to address that primary sector of rural economy i.e. agriculture througha green and productive drive under the active co-operation of NABARD, Bhubaneswar. The intro-duction of new varieties, practices, increase in yield and organic farming are high lights of theproject benefiting the large chunk of our target groups. Details would unfold in the pages ahead. I do thank one and all who have come forward to make this scaling up a success throughan inclusive and green approach altogether. Thanks Sumati Raj 2
  • 3. ARM Annual Report 2011-12 Coordinating Member’s FARMERS’ FOCUS ON FARMAbout 80% of our population leave in villages out of which over 50% are below poverty line. The kingpinbehind the sismal picture is nothing but our eratic farming. Lack of technology use, absence of departmen-tal convergence, non-exiistence of farmers collective associated with not focused approach have added tothe woes. Esteemed NABARD, the pioneer in agriculture and rural finance in India in collaboration with ARMhas come up in the last couple of years to identify the weakness and threats associated with Balasore agri-culture so that the opportunities available could be exploited and strengthed. The pilot project on Augu-menting farm productivity is a bold step in this regard which addreses the multiple issues of improved farmpractices, enhancing productivity, increasing marketable surplus, scalling of food security and formation offarmers collectives in Balasore district. ARM has taken a lead role for assessment and refinement of agriculture in Balasore district underthe guidance of NABARD RO, Bhubaneswar. The production level of paddy, greengram and groundnuthave doubled up including net income of farmers. Soil health and environmental concerns have beentaken care of through soil test based fertilizer application and organic cultivation of low input sustainableagriculture. Augumenting farm productivity has also been taken up through BGREI and no effort spread for itslateral spread to the entire district through master farmers. Formation of farmers collectives have led theproductivity drive from the front. Hope to get more cooperation from our near and dear farmer in thecoming days. Jai kIsan Rajendra Kumar Rana 3

Community Health PHC Management In spite of gradual improvement in health status over many years, preventable mortal-ity and morbidity in Orissa are high. The root cause of poor health continue to be poverty, so-cial deprivation, lower levels of literacy, inefficient health systems and lack of infrastructurefor health care and disease control. Socio cultural inequalities and barriers, insufficient as-sertion and demand for health care, inadequate geography spread of service outlets and poorquality health care reduce access to effectiveness of public services where in women, childrenand tribal cum backward communities are the most affected. ARM is managing a Primary Health Centre at Paschimbad for last 4 years with ac-tive support of local public as well as financial support from NRHM,Govt. of Odisha.The goal ofNRHM is thus to improve the availability of and access to quality health care by people espe-cially for those residing in rural area, the poor women and children.During the year we have achieved the target as follows: Health service Provided Total Total outdoor patients treated 22571 Total indoor patients 617 Total Referral to nearest hospital 311 Total Ambulance service 467 Total Institutional delivery 145 Total Pathological test conducted 3158 ANC 285 14

  • 21. ARM Annual Report 2011-12 Case StudiesSusanta Pila, an inhabitant of Ikadpal village, is a marginal farmer having only 4 decimals of lands, which are mainly mono-cropped. Susanta is aprimary school drop out who had to discontinue his studies after Class-II due to poverty. Susanta, aged 50 years, lives in a small hut in an uncouthatmosphere with his wife Rabati Pila, and 1 son [16 years] and 1 daughter [19 years]. He somehow ekes out a living by growing local paddy in his 4decimals lands and other 1.16 acre land hired on lease for Kharif season. He lives below the poverty line without having food security for his familyfor the entire year. He cultivates in 1 acre and 16 decimals of land every year [4 decimals own land and 1.16 acre land taken on lease]. All through-out the year he gets only 1 crop i.e. local Indica variety of paddy. Besides, due to adherence to traditional system of farming, land production is verylow - only 11 quintals from 1 acre and 20 decimals of land. Rice is their staple food and the family needs 3.5 kg. of rice daily, i.e. 1277.50 kg. ofrice for the whole year for family consumption. But unfortunately he gets only 11 quintals of paddy, i.e. 660kg. of rice from 1 acre and 20 decimalsof land for the whole year, if there is a good monsoon. If there is a natural disaster, the cultivation gets badly damaged filling to the cup of misery ofthe family to its brim. Thus the family lives in perpetual poverty and privation. However, Susanta Pila was motivated to cultivate RGL 25-37 in the Kharif season of 2011. He was given 1 day’s pre-season trainingfrom the Pilot project of NABARD implemented by ARM, a NGO in Balasore district in Odisha. He was trained up in the seed treatment, landpreparation, fertilizers application, pest management and above all in the scientific system of cultivation of RGL 25-37, a HYV paddy recom-mended by ICAR. He was also given support for inputs like seeds, fertilizers, insecticides etc. on 50% subsidy basis from the Pilot programme ofNABARAD. Thanks to the authorities of NABARD and in particular to Mr. Laxindhar Dash, DDM, NABARD for his bold initiative, kind help andcollaboration, the implementation of Pilot Programme of NABARD through ARM, Odisha has changed the life of Susanta Pila. Now to assess the impact of the application of the technology in the life and livelihood of Susanta Pila, the beneficiary farmer, let us havea comparative study of agricultural yield and net income before and after the implementation of the programme.Agricultural yield and resultant income from 1 acre and 20 decimals of land before the implementation of pilot programme of NABARD, Imple-mented by ARM, Odisha Season Name of the crop Total yield at 1 acre Value of total Cost of cultivation Net income and 20 decimals of produce land Kharif Local Indica variety 1100 kg.

But after the implementation of the project Susanta no longer adheres to traditional system of farming. He has started cultivating HYV paddy in a scientific manner. Successful dissemination of appropriate technologies – The technologies of improved farm practices and cultivation of disease-resistant and high yielding variety of RGL 25-37 have been suc- cessfully transferred among the beneficiary farmer. Phenomenal Increase in agricultural productivity - After the implementation of the pilot programme with the introduction of scientific system of farming, agricultural productivity per acre has increased phenomenally. For example, before the implementation of the project, Susanta only used to get Local variety of 1100 kg. of 21
  • 22. ARM Annual Report 2011-12 Rise in Income – The Pilot programme of NABARD has raised the meager income of the poor farmer Susanta spectacularly. Before the implementation of the programme from 1.5 acre of land Susanta had only net income of Rs.3,300, which has been increased to Rs.18,800 after the pro- gramme. His income has been increased roughly six times of his previous income. The comparison of return from 1.5 acre land area be- fore and after the pilot programme of NABARD has been represented below by Bar-diagram. 1 denotes the Net Income of Susanta Pila from 1.5 acre of land before the implementation of the Income Level Pilot programme of NABARD. 2 denotes the Net Income of Susanta Pila from 1.5 acre of land after the implementation of the Pilot 18800 programme of NABARD. 20000 15000 Up-gradation of standard of living – With a perceptible rise in income level the standard of living of Susanta Pila has been improved 10000 Income Level noticeably. His purchasing capacity has been increased leading to increase in the per capita con- 3300 sumption level. 5000 0 Food Security – 1 2 Before the implementation of the pilot programme they had to starve or remain under-fed day after day. The family had only food security for hardly 200 days in a year. Now they will have food secu- rity for the entire year. Case Study - 2Rasalpur is a picturesque village where lives our poor friend Paresh Chandra Pal in a tiny cottage, on sordid condition. Black-complexioned, small,Paresh is a youth of 38 years. At first meet, he wins the heart of a stranger with his ever-smiling face. Thanks to the Lord, crushing poverty hasfailed to snatch the smile from his lip. He belongs to Other Backward Caste. He lives with his family, which includes 6 members in total – Pareshhimself, his mother, one sister, his wife, 1 daughter and 1 son. With outstanding zeal and stamina Paresh could continue his studies upto Class - VI.Paresh’s life is a tearful tale of continuous struggle for existence. Agriculture is their prime source of livelihood. They own only 1 acre of landwhere he gets only local Indica variety of paddy in the Kharif season and Green Gram in the Rabi season. Due to traditional system of farming hegets only 705 kg. of paddy from 1 acre of land in the Kharif season. In the Rabi season he cultivates Green Gram in his own land. He gets only 1.1Qtl. Of Green Grams from his 1 acre of land. He sells his green grams @Rs.35/- per kg and gets only 110 Kg x Rs.35= Rs.3850/-. The cost of cultivation is Rs.1400/- and his net income is [Rs.3850 – Rs.1400] = Rs.2450/-.The pilot programme of NABARD implemented by ARM made a sea-change in the life of Paresh. Thanks tothe Almighty, Paresh was enthused to hear about the scientific cultivation of Green Grams under the Pilot pro-gramme of NABARD from the project team of ARM. He was given 2 day’s training in the scientific cultiva-tion of Green Grams on 15.01.2011. After the training was over he was given inputs like seeds, bio-fertilizers,pesticides etc. on a 50% subsidy basis. Under the seed village programme of Green Grams 0.25 acre of hisland was covered under cultivation of Green Grams. However, after the successful dissemination of technol-ogy Paresh cultivated green grams in 1 acre of land. He got the production of 225 kg. of green grams from 1acre of land. He got a price of Rs.74/- per kg. of Green Grams as seed and as such he got Rs.74 x 225 =Rs.16650/- from his produce. The cost of cultivation was Rs.3400/-. Therefore, he got a net income ofRs.16650 – Rs.3400 = Rs.13250/- by selling 225 kg of seeds of green grams in the new situation. His bet in-come from the cultivation of Green Grams has been increased from Rs.2450/- to Rs.13250/- and finally hisincome has been increased by 5.4 times. With the perceptible increase in income purchasing capacity of Pareshhas undoubtedly been increased. However, our dear friend Paresh now feels happy and thinks very positivelyfor his future. Now to assess the impact of the project in the life of Paresh, the beneficiary farmer, let us have a comparative study of agricultural yieldand net income before and after the implementation of the programme.Agricultural yield and resultant income from 1 acre of land before the implementation of pilot programme of NABARD, Implemented byARM, Odisha 22

But after the implementation of the project Paresh has started cultivating green grams in a scientific way. Spectacular Increase in productivity of Green Grams - After the successful dissemination of technology Paresh has started cultivating green grams in a scientific manner resulting in spectacular increase in agricultural yield per acre. Before the implementation of the project, Paresh only used to get Local variety of Green Grams of 110 kg. in 1 acre of land in the Rabi season. But after the implementation of the project Paresh has got 225 kg. of Green Grams in 1 acre of land. As such, the agricultural yield of Green Grams has been increased two times with the successful transfer of technology. Multiplication of Income – The successful transfer of technology in cultivation of Green Grams has multiplied the income level of Paresh Chandal Pal. Before the implementation of the programme from 1 acre of land Paresh had only net income of Rs.2450, which has been increased to Rs.13250 after the programme.

ARM Annual Report 2011-12 SEED TREATMENT CAMPAIGNSeed Treatment Campaign on Groundnut (Rabi 2011-12) in Baliapal Block organized byARMObjectives:To increase production, some parameters have been selected by the scientists. Out of which seed treat-ment is one parameter. Till date farmers are not fully aware about seed treatment for which Govt. ofOrissa has taken a massive drive on kios issue. Seed treatment campaigns have been organized in re-mote villages of different blocks. Provision of seed treating chemical (vita vax-power) method of treat-ment to reduce the seed borne diseases of different crops is to be achieved. When seed treatment willbe achieved 100% diseases in main crop field will be reduced and crop loss up to 20% will also be re-duced.Target Village: 4, Namely-Ikarpal, Nikhira, Chaumukhand GanjaFinancial assistance: District Agriculture Officer, Balasore,OrissaProgramme details:On dated 30.11.2011 a Seed Treatment Campaigns are organizedwith the support of Agriculture Department, Govt. Of Orissa in vil-lage of Ikarpal, Nikhira, Chaumukhand Ganja in Baliapal Block ofBalasore District in collaboration with volunter organization namedas Alternative for Rural Movement. Mr.Rajendra Kumar Rana, Co-ordinating Member welcome the resource persons gathered theparticipants participants and Mr.Bijay Kumar Mishra,DAO,Jaleswarpresided over the campaign.Following enlisted resource persons participated in the campaignand imparted the technical know how about idea seed treatmentto Lead farmers and Associate Farmers.Farmers have been mobilized in the campaign and they showed interest to adapt the ground nut seedtreatment method. The campaign has been organized by conducting theoretical and practical classes.Experienced resource persons shared their valuable suggestion through lectures for orientation of thetarget people. Thus the interest of learning among target farmers has been imbibed. Experienced re- source persons have conducted the activity of “How to do Seed Treatment before starting of any cultivation” during practical session of campaign. This has encouraged farmers and motivated them for seed treatment in scientific method. In one cleaned and dry big earthen pot (Kalasi) drop 1 kg seed and mix up with it 2 gm Vi- tavex powder. In this process if farmer use the treated seeds in cultivation the production will be increased and profitable and chances of in- sect in crops will be less. This process can be applicable for all types of seeds. With the in- volvement of all Govt. officials seed treatment training has been organised in such process for all farmers of concerned village. For more culti- vation need more modern technique. At thetime cultivation all the farmers have been advised to give effort for better cultivation along with thecounseling from Govt. officials also required for better crop cultivation and financial betterment of farm-ers. The Soil testing, production, medicines for production, pest control etc have also been discussed inthe campaign. 27
