      • 189 technologies were demonstrated though FLDs covering 434 ha
      • Under capacity building programme, 642 training programmes were organized for 14843 farmers and farm women.
      • Improvements in cropping intensity of four blocks of Jabalpur districts from 150  to 200% by introduction of summer mung and urd
      • Enhancement in crop productivity varying from 50 to 71% in different  crops
      • Twenty four self help groups and societies were initiated to utilize time and generated additional income
      • Established village library at four locations of Jabalpur district in order to provide ready information/knowledge to the farmers
      • Promote the use of biofertilizers especially the rhizobium and PSB and use of Trichoderma in pulses
      • Promotion of crop/varietal diversification under stress conditions
      • Create awareness among the farmers for summer deep ploughing, soil testing, seed treatment and use of nutrients based on soil test value
      • Initiated the Kisan Mobile Sandesh to speed up the technology diffusion process
      • At information technology front, published quarterly news letter Jawahar Krishi Sandesh and made available to different organizations and farmers.

Data reveal that improved practice gave an average yield of 17.15 q/ha which is 57.3% higher over local practices. Moreover, the highest and lowest yields under demonstration were 18.7 and 15.6 q/ha respectively. Thus, an additional income of Rs. 12625 may be obtained by following the improved practices

Horizontal Spread

Paddy is the most important kharif cereal crop of the district, occupying 63,600 hectare area. However, most of the area is rainfed and crop suffers due to weed infestation, low nutrient application and poor seed replacement. During last five years emphasis was given for improving the rice productivity through IWM, INM and SRI cultivation technique. Efforts were made to introduce improved varieties of scented rice.

Outcome:

  • Spread in area of scented rice specially Pusa sugandha-3: 850 ha
Overall increase in yield: 46.7%
