Transcript of "Presentation of kharif paddy stabilisation"

  1. 1. Kharif Paddy Stabilization Collectives for Integrated Livelihood Initiatives
  2. 2. Key Objectives of KPS <ul><li>Ensuring Year Round Food Security for tribal households in paddy growing regions </li></ul><ul><li>Enhancing livelihoods </li></ul>
  3. 3. Paddy cultivation in Central India <ul><li>Paddy forms the main staple crop for tribals across central India mainly in eastern states </li></ul><ul><li>Production of paddy is quite low, about 1.5 to 2 ton/ha as against the national average of 3.5 ton/ha </li></ul><ul><li>Food security highly depends on production of paddy, which on analysis shows that food sufficiency is only for 6-9 months </li></ul><ul><li>Cultivation practices are mostly primitive with minimal technological intervention on agriculture </li></ul><ul><li>Rainfall patterns governing the production as irrigation resources minimal </li></ul><ul><li>Central Indian tribal heartland also referred to as rainfed agriculture land is considered to be the second green revolution region </li></ul>
  4. 4. Central India Initiative recommendations for Zone ‘A’ <ul><li>Focus on stabilization of Kharif crop through improved agricultural technology named as Kharif Paddy Stabilization strategy </li></ul><ul><li>Promotion of water resource development for critical watering and Rabbi cultivation </li></ul><ul><li>Promotion of vegetable cultivation as cash crop economy </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore, Kharif Paddy Stabilization taken up as one of main theme under the Central India Initiative </li></ul>
  5. 5. Kharif Paddy Stabilization Strategy <ul><li>Ensuring Food Security of Tribal Households through stabilization of paddy production. </li></ul><ul><li>An effort to enhance the livelihood of tribal population through intensification of rice cultivation, with improved technology interventions and strong extension. </li></ul><ul><li>Standardization of rice cultivation leads the farmers to the enhancement of economic activities in the states. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Learnings of KPS for last 2-3 years under Central India Initiative <ul><li>Promoting a farmer friendly PoP for improving the cultivation practices </li></ul><ul><li>Working with 8-9 partners to promote KPS with about 75,000 hhs </li></ul><ul><li>Enhanced production through the KPS strategy – baseline production 1.5 ton/ha and KPS production 2.5 ton/ha </li></ul><ul><li>Farmers acceptance for KPS (50% adoption rate) </li></ul><ul><li>PoP acceptance through partner organizations but variations in each partner while implementing the same </li></ul><ul><li>Irrigation support very critical for paddy basically during nursery stage and fruiting stage </li></ul><ul><li>Broadcasting method reduced to only 5-10% area, now mainly done in uplands </li></ul><ul><li>SRI technology one of most important process to achieve high production </li></ul><ul><li>Food security for year round taken care, if KPS implemented systematically </li></ul>
  7. 7. Suggested Approach for mainstreaming KPS <ul><li>Ensuring all partners promote the standardized KPS PoP across the region </li></ul><ul><li>Documentation (written and visual) of processes under KPS for large scale dissemination and knowledge generation </li></ul><ul><li>Promoting SRI as part of KPS (more production levels for enhanced food security) </li></ul><ul><li>Promotion of strong CBOs for long term promotion and management of resources </li></ul><ul><li>Linking micro credit support for large scale area increase by farmers (also look at weather insurance products) </li></ul><ul><li>Mainstreaming the programme through dovetailing with National Food Security Mission, which has mandate of enhancing paddy production in all states </li></ul>
  8. 8. Vision for 2011-12 <ul><li>Goal – Ensuring Year Round Food Security for Tribal Communities in Central India (paddy growing regions) </li></ul><ul><li>Key Indicators – Stabilization of Paddy productivity would be the key focus area under the strategy. The key indicators towards envisaging the productivity stabilization are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Promoting the KPS (with SRI as main technology) directly with about 5 lakh households </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Presence in all the paddy growing districts of Central India Initiative </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Quality Documentation on strategy for wide scale dissemination </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strategic Partnership with Government Departments (NFSM), International Institutions and Agricultural Universities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Strong Backward and Forward Linkages on Paddy to balance the demand-supply </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Expected Outcomes by 2012 <ul><li>Year round food security for 75% households (out of 5 lakhs hhs) </li></ul><ul><li>Productivity of Paddy Stabilized and Doubled/Tripled to the present level of production </li></ul><ul><li>Income enhancement of all the households by 50% from the present level (through KPS and allied livelihood promotion) </li></ul><ul><li>SRI promotion across all households as part of KPS strategy </li></ul><ul><li>Strategic Linkages with the NFSM in all the CInI states </li></ul>
  10. 10. Focus to work closely with all stakeholders to promote KPS and ensure year round food security of tribal communities
