Activities undertaken

  • More number of FLDs on farmers field should be implemented.
  • No. of SMS containing agricultural information should be increase.
  • Well planning of purchasing of Trichoderma, Beauveria, seed etc for supplying to interested farmers of district should be carried out.
  • KVK should plan more no. of soil sample testing at KVK to encourage farmers to follow Soil Testing based fertilizer application.
  • If possible, more no. of SMS on Agri advisory services to farmers should be send in collaboration with Reliance Foundation.
  • In ATIC and NFSM FLDs, use more Bio-Fertilizer and Bio-pesticide in pulses & oilseed and other crops.

Farmers Response (Specific points only)

  • Vaishali is a good variety and farmer obtain high yield.
  • In initial farmers are ready to grow more seed production programme due to price but due to low prize at production farmers are not willing far next year seed production programme.
