  2. 2. New Initiatives Strengthening Pulses Production Programs Four pronged strategy on Agriculture Growth in the Budget 2009-10  Agriculture Production  Food Processing  Credit  Reducing Wastage of produce Nutrient Based Subsidy effective from April 1, 2010 (Fertilizers and Chemicals) Rs. 100 crores for ‘Mahila Kisan Sashaktikaran Yojana’ as a sub component of National Rural Livelihood Mission (Rural Development) Additional Central Assistance of Rs. 1200 crores to Bundelkhand for drought mitigation (Rural Development)
  3. 3. Tax Concessions Modernizing Mandis or warehousing  Concessional import duty of 5 % and service tax exemption for mechanised handling of food grains and sugar in Mandis  Central excise and service tax exemption to specified equipment for storage and warehousing of agriculture products Promoting Cold chain infrastructure  Concessional customs duty of 5 % with full exemption from service tax to setting up of Cold storage facilities and Processing units for such produce.  Provide full exemption from customs duty to refrigeration units required for the manufacture of refrigerated vans or trucks Promoting Farm Mechanization  Concessional customs duty of 5 per cent to specified agricultural machinery not manufactured in India;  Full exemption from excise duty to trailers and semi-trailers used in agriculture. Transportation of produce  The transportation by road of cereals, and pulses to be exempted from service tax. Transportation by rail to remain exempt.

  6. 6. Key Challenges Sustained higher production levels of food grains  More focused working especially for pulses Regional disparity  Widening the food basket  Broad basing the risks of crop failure due to climatic variability Rainfed area development  Convergence – mechanism for horizontal working?  Watershed management – Large scale replication of good models? Risk mitigation for Climatic variability  Integrated farming system for diversifying farm portfolio – horticulture, fisheries, dairy etc. Wadi project of NABARD, Livelihood projects of World Bank?  Seed Rolling Production Plans for quantity of needed varieties– Seeds Mission?  Conservation Agriculture – National Mission on Sustainable Agriculture?  Effective innovative weather based Insurance products – savings linked crop insurance?  Increased buffer stocks for food grains – grain storage grid? Efficient marketing supply chain  Scientific storage and management – fungible warehousing receipts?  Processing – private investments, logistics management?  Direct marketing – credible contract farming mechanism?

  8. 8. Focus on Pulses and oilseeds Strengthening NFSM Pulses  Merger of ISOPOM for pulses with NFSM  More funds – about 1000 crores in next two years  Accelerated pulses production program (A3P)  Block demonstrations of soil nutrient and plant protection centric technology in 1000 units of 1000 hectares compact block each for five major pulses with an outlay of 700 crores  Provision for extension staff at unit level  Inclusion of Jharkhand and Assam States More funds available under ISOPOM for oilseeds development Integrated development of 60,000 pulses and oilseeds villages in rainfed areas with an outlay of 300 crores under RKVY  Watershed management and water harvesting  Community tanks  Field channels  Dry land farming  Watershed plus activities for crop development  Convergence with NFSM, ISOPOM, NHM, NREGA and NWDPRA
  9. 9. Next Steps for A3P Prepare an action plan as per the guidelines for implementing A3P from April 2010  Identification of beneficiaries and units among villages  Preparing unit wise district level plans Ensure supply of gypsum and plant protection chemicals to identified beneficiaries through the designated agencies Engage extension staff for unit level positioning and impart an orientation training  KVKs could be actively associated Capacity building for pest monitoring and pest surveillance by NCIPM Modalities for implementing integrated development of 60,000 pulses and oilseeds villages being worked out
