Published on


National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP), ICAR and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) organized a two day workshop on ‘Impact of capacity building programs under NAIP’ on June 6-7, 2014 at AP Shinde Auditorium, NASC Complex, Pusa, New Delhi. The main purpose of the workshop was to present and discuss the findings of the impact evaluation study on capacity building programs under NAIP by IFPRI. The scientists from ICAR and agricultural universities were sent abroad to receive training in specialized research techniques. Post-training, scientists were expected to work on collaborative projects within the ICAR, which would further enrich their knowledge and skills, expand their research network and stimulate them’ to improve their productivity, creativity and quality of their research. The ICAR commissioned with IFPRI (International Food Policy Research Institute) to undertake an evaluation of these capacity building programs under NAIP in July 2012. The workshop shared the findings on the impact of capacity building programs under NAIP and evolve strategies for future capacity building programs

IFPRI - NAIP - Experiences about the Training Programs - Nachiket Kotwaliwale

  1. 1. Experiences about the training programs - International open trainings and National trainings Nachiket Kotwaliwale CIAE, Bhopal
  2. 2. International and National trainings at CIAE  No. of scientists at CIAE trained under component 1 of NAIP – 13  Number of NAIP sponsored trainings conducted – 3  Additionally, CIAE scientists were core faculty in two national trainings conducted at CIPHET and IARI
  3. 3. Training in the context of individual and institutional skill gaps - International Training  For many trainees this was maiden foreign experience  Moral boost  Confidence building  Sense of belonging to sponsoring organization  Widening of perspective  Exposure to the future of technology in one’s field of specialization  Developed skills on use of modern instruments/ advanced software  Organization of national training(s) helped development of facilities and structured course material
  4. 4. Training in the context of individual and institutional skill gaps - National Training  For majority did not have any background in the area/ topics of training – Novel  Majority were young (assistant professor equivalent) – learning curve was sharp – training could be conducted in extended hours  Involvement of international faculty was very much encouraging – lot of personal interaction  Major concern among trainees – availability of facilities at their respective institutes to take any further research in the area
  5. 5. Capacity built, work culture and attitudinal changes  Exposure to the complimentary research methodology  Major areas in which capacity built –  Machine vision  Sensor application  NTNC processing  Fermentation  Nano-technology  Packaging technology  Nutraceuticals
  6. 6. Planning, selection, training duration, resource institution and resource person, training implementation, and reporting The international training duration must be depending upon the research area The national training sponsored by NAIP could have been more effective if Duration of training could be flexible (10-21 days) ASRB & SAUs give appropriate credit to these training in career advancement schemes
  7. 7. Post-training utilization, linkage and network developed and future plan
  8. 8. Effective Implementation of On-going/ Completed Research Activities:  X-ray, CT and MRI image analysis of mangoes for non-destructive quality evaluation  National Initiative of Climate Resilient Agriculture  Enzyme assisted aqueous extraction processing (EAAP) of soybean  Image based weed detection and weedicide application  Spectral signature generation for some crops at different stages of plants  A study on activation of crop residue based charcoal is underway to obtain the activated carbon at very low cost by nano cavities augmentation.
  9. 9. On-going Research Activities:  A power tiller mounted laser sensor based single row herbicide application system has been developed and tested successfully.  A tractor operated two row laser sensor based herbicide application system has been developed and tested successfully.  A controller based 5 row tractor operated seed drill has been developed.  A project on machine vision application for plant variety identification has been initiated under ICAR national fund.  Membrane technology for soy-milk-powder production
  10. 10. Future research activities  A major thrust area of research during XII plan is “Conservation agriculture” and its role in mitigating the effect of climate change.  A complete laboratory on machine vision applications in agriculture has been proposed in the XII plan EFC document of the institute  Emphasis has been given to non-thermal non- chemical processing of foods in the research programmes proposed during XII plan.
  11. 11.  Precision agriculture with appropriate sensors and instrumentation is now one of the major thrust areas of the institute.  Talks initiated with M/s Marine Marshall products , Erode, Tamilnadu for joint project/ technical guidance for the extraction of chitosan and related products  Contribution to ICAR’s Nano Technology platform  Nano technological interventions for waste management and enhanced energy conversion
  12. 12. Output of International and National training
  13. 13. HRD  Summer School  Sensor based application for precision farming to enhance input use efficiency (Jul. 5- 25, 2011)  Engineering Interventions in Conservation Agriculture for Enhancing Agricultural Productivity and Climate Change Mitigation (Jun. 22- Jul. 12, 2012)  NAIP sponsored 10-day training  Non thermal, Non Chemical Processing and membrane technology in food system (Oct. 12-21, 2011)  Sensors and protocols for Machine Vision Applications in Agriculture (Dec. 15-24, 2011)  Sensors and Actuators for Precision Farming (Mar. 3- 12, 2014)
  14. 14. Research Management & academics  Linkages were established with following Universities of USA:  University of Nebraska, Lincoln,  North Dakota State University, Fargo  Cornell University, Ithaca  Iowa State University, Ames  Virginia Tech, Blacksburg  Oklahoma State University, Stillwater  University of Manitoba, Manitoba  Washington State University, Pullman
  15. 15. Requirements for collaborative projects with US funding  Before proposal submission, all proposed US or non-US subawardee institutions must be registered with FastLane and Central Contractor Registration (CCR), and have a DUNS number.  Fastlane details at (https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/NSFHelp/Printdocs/FastLane_ Help/pd_fastlane_registration/pd_fastlane_registration.pdf)  Central Contractor Registration should be handled through http://www.ccr.gov  Now known as System for Award Management (SAM) https://www.sam.gov/portal/public/SAM /##11  Institutions may obtain a DUNS number free of charge through the Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) online registration (http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform)
  16. 16.  Visits of faculty of international universities to CIAE, Bhopal/ Coimbatore  University of Nebraska, Lincoln,  Iowa State University, Ames  Virginia Tech, Blacksburg  University of California  Some collaborative research activities proposed for funding under different international programmes.  Research paper published – Eight in collaboration with international faculty, 6 in collaboration with local scientist(s)  Five course manuals
  17. 17.  Scientists trained at international laboratories delivered more than 20 lectures in different training courses, workshops, symposia etc.  One trainee of national training pursued his doctoral work in the area of machine vision.  One trainee of national training was later selected for international training
  18. 18. Post-training requirement All trainees should be supported appropriately with the requisite resources in terms of manpower and financial support. Introduction of special fund to develop the laboratory/ facility.
  19. 19. Comparison of International and National Training International training National training • Unique experience & exposure • Freedom to work • Possibility for international collaboration • Less expensive • Comparatively better planned and structured • Formation of a national group • Not structured in most cased • Training of only one or two scientists per specialized area at one instt. may not be adequate • Limited resources • Laboratory facilities not adequate in some cases
