Details of irrigation :

Open well, tube well and canals are the main source of irrigation in the district. Source wise irrigation potential in the district is as under

irrigation

 

Scenario :

  • Paddy, Wheat & Gram are the major crops in the district having low productivity as compare to potential due to traditional farm practices.

  • With inputs becoming costlier adoption of Scientific farming techniques is slow.

  • Most of the seeding devices are traditional resulted low inputs use efficiency.

  • 50 – 60% of cultivated land under rainfed agriculture is contributing only 25- 30% of total crop production

  • Effective application of  chemical is inadequate. About 75 -80 % of the total pesticide applied reaches on the soil instead of being retained on the plant.

  • The size of land holdings is progressively reducing,  with very low availability of agriculture land sustenance of farmers through agriculture is becoming difficult.

  • The application efficiency of conventional irrigation system is only up to 40 %, due to non adoption of pressurized & scientific method of irrigation.

  • Due to lack of proper post harvest technologies losses in  food grain is 10-15 %.

  • Diversification of crop is very slow. Area under Horticulture crops is only 2.5 % of cultivated land.

  • Cropping intensity of the district is only 95%.

  • Application of Soil and Water conservation  technologies at farmers part are almost nil.

  • Present seed replacement rate is only 2%.

  • Imbalance and non judicious use of fertilizer (20:11:1 Kg NPK)  in the district not only deteriorating  soil health but also increasing cost of production.

  • Poor storage facilities & high fluctuation in market rate for fruits and vegetables restrict to farmers for crop diversification.

  • Adoption of  improved tools and implements is very slow due to poor purchasing  capacity of farmers is bottleneck in adoption of effective  & scientific  technology.

  • Non availability of critical inputs in time and their adulteration

  • Inadequate knowledge on the part of farmers as well as extension functionaries about location specific technologies suitable for farming system.

  • Poor credit support to small & marginal farmers is one of  the bottleneck in enhancing productivity.

  • Although significant work has been done at R & D and policy  level for enhancing crop productivity but lack of proper linkage and coordination among developmental departments  the expected results yet to come.

  • Irregular supply of power in rabi during peak crop period is one of the bottleneck in enhancing crop production.

  • Govt. Offices and institutions working in the field of Agriculture and allied to agriculture in the district.
