2.  NICRA Project
Background :
Climate change impact on agriculture are being witnessed all over the  world, but India is more vulnerable in view of the huge population dependent on agriculture, excessive pressure on natural resources and poor coping mechanics. Enhancing productivity of major kharif crops therefore, is critical for ensuring food security for all, particularly the resource poor small and marginal farmers who would be affected most. Among the factor responsible for low productivity of kharif crops in rainfed area, use of long duration variety, unaware of high yielding variety, scattering rainfall and early withdrawn of monsoon are important. Farmers of the area are facing the problem of failure of sown crop in that situation. Long duration varieties are not performing well in that situation. At the same time, there is a scope to improve the resilience of agriculture by application of existing knowledge and technology on farmer’s field as a holistic package. This study was conducted to enhance the resilience of crops to climatic variability and climate change through development and using improved production and risk management technologies under rainfed condition of North Saurashtra region.
About NICRA Village: Magharwada
Magharwada village comes under North Saurashtra Agroclimatic, ZoneVI. It is situated in the eastern part of the Rajkot district and 12 km away from Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Targhadia (Rajkot). Total household and population in the village are 300 and 1543, respectively. Major livestock cattle 118 and buffaloes 148 in the village.  Soil of the village is medium black with pH 7.2, low in available organic carbon (0.60) and nitrogen (330 kg/ha), medium in available phosphorus (45 kg/ha) and potassium (158 kg/ha). The average annual rainfall of the village is about 633 mm. The total cultivated area of the village is 799 ha, out of which more than 40% area under rainfed and remaining comes under irrigated. The major field crops of the village are cotton and groundnut in kharif while wheat, chickpea and cumin in Rabi season. Fluctuation in area of these crops subjected to rainfall pattern and market price. Open wells is the major source of irrigation. The average depth of open wells is 13 to 21 m and most of the wells becomes dry at the end of winter. Farmers of the selected village nearby villages under adverse climate situation such as early season drought (delayed onset), normal onset followed by 15-20 days dry spell, mid season drought (long dry spell) and early withdrawal of monsoon were faced during past years.

2.1 High yielding Variety of Chickpea (GJG-5)
Among the factor responsible for low productivity of kharif crops in rainfed area, use of high yielding variety was one of the important step for increasing farmer income. In some area availability of irrigation facilities and benefits of storage rainfall water help to get more return through taking a rabi season. The Chickpea variety GJG-5 found that high yielding and resistance to wilt and stunt disease. Therefore, this varieties are appropriate for this area. Total ten demonstrations were conducted on farmers’ field with local variety. The result shows that 14.28 percent increase yield over local variety.

2.5 Integrated Disease Management in Groundnut: (IDM)
Stem rot of groundnut is very important disease of groundnut for reduction in yield. These diseases cause harmful losses and deteriorate the quality of product as well as export importance. In Gujarat, especially groundnut pocket area (Saurashtra region), this disease found severely resulting as a huge losses to farmers. Due to Injudicious uses of chemical pesticides and unaware about bioagent, farmers cannot take appropriate decision regarding proper remedies to control it. To control the stem rot of groundnut, Trichoderma harzianum (Bioagent) was utilized along with castor cake during sowing time in furrow application. Twenty five IDM demonstrations in groundnut crop were conducted through use of Trichodermasp. The result indicates that groundnut yield increase up to 08.90 percent over farmer practice and disease reduction up to5.30 percent over the farmer practices.

2.5 Integrated Pest Management in cotton: (IPM)
Due to Injudicious uses of chemical pesticides have resulted in developed a resistance against some pesticides and increase the cost of cultivation. The farmer generally used a same group of insecticides and repeated uses in crops every year. Due to continuous use of Insecticides resulted adverse effect on microbial activity of soil, plants and also ecosystem so that, reduction in yield day by day. Twenty five IPM demonstrations in cotton crop were conducted through use of Beauveria bassiana (Entomopathogenic fungi) in Bt cotton to control the sucking pest like as Aphid, Jassids, Thrips, Whitefly, Mites and also Bollworms specially Pink bollworm in cotton. The result indicates that cotton yield increase up to 06.10 percent over farmer practice.

3.1 Nutritive Fodder / Green Fodder Production:
In view to water scarcity situation leading to unavailability of green fodder in adequate quantity. The multi cut Makhhan Grass is good source of nutritive and palatable fodder for animal. Makkhan Grass is high nutritional multi cut annual grass. Makkhan Grass is highly succulent and more palatable grass. Makkhan Grass feeding will improves milk production and great improve in milk solids like Makkhan. Highly suitable for hill and low temperature areas. Total 10 farmers were benefited through this new fodder variety. Farmers got higher yield 9.59 % than local fodder variety.
3.2   Vaccination camp:
The farmers of village not following the vaccination schedules for animals. Therefore,   two vaccination camp was organized to immune the animals against different infection disease like Hemorrhagic Septicaemia (H.S.) & Foot and Mouth (MD) disease, and total 254 animals are covered under vaccination programmes.
3.3 Chelated Mineral mixture
The animal of the NICRA village is deficient in minerals and farmers of this village not supplying the mineral. Therefore, chelated mineral mixture were Demonstration to 20 farmers full fill the mineral requirement of animals. Demo lead to 13.6 % increase milk production than local.
3.4 Bypass Protein

Custom hiring centre : 
Uses of several farm implements were promoted through custom hiring centre. Use of cotton stalk shredder has become popular among the farmers for preparation of organic compost from cotton stalk chopped by shredder and about 16 farmers have used this implement and prepared 39 tone organic compost. Mobile chopper and rotavator has become popular for recycling/incorporate of farm residues to enrich the nutrient status of soil. Also, manual drawn automatic seed drill and battery operated knapsack sprayer has become popular for drudgery reduction in farming community. Sowing of seeds at equally space and proper depth with minimum time by use of tractor drawn automatic seed-cum-fertilizer drill has found effective.
Performance of the farm implements/equipments at farmer’s field:
1.   Sowing by Manual drawn automatic seed drill is useful for labour saving, seed placed at equally space and proper depth with minimum sowing time require. This implement can also be used for sowing of inter crop like Cotton + Groundnut, Black gram, Green gram, Maize, Sesamum and Groundnut + Castor or Pigeon pea
2.   Use of battery operated knapsack sprayer is more comfortable for spraying of insecticides  due to saving of time and higher efficiency with uniform spraying of insecticides to control the sucking pests in cotton. It was also observed more area can be covered with uniform spraying as compare to manual operated Knapsack sprayer
3.   Use of mobile chopper for recycling of farm residues (standing cotton stalk) is possible for cutting of standing cotton stalk and use of organic matter, bio fertilizer and soil amendments for maintaining crop productivity & soil health. Specially in the area where the labour shortage is the problem.

Objectives
:
 
 
2)      To provide a ‘single window’ delivery system for the product and the species available from JAU to the farmers and other interested groups as a process of innovativeness in technology dissemination. 
ii) To facilitate direct access to the farmers to the institutional research available in term of technology, advice, technology products, etc. for reducing technology dissemination losses.
iii) To provide mechanism for feed back from the users to the institute.
5.
Justification of the scheme :
 
At the University, infrastructure facilities to carry out research and education activities are satisfactory. A large number of research based recommendations have come up in the recent past for the farming community. At present, transfer of technology is carried out through training, farm publication, filed day, farmers day, telecast, radio talk, etc. However, there is a need to established ATIC at the main campus, as well as at the key regional station of JAU, so that technological transformation is possible and the farmers are benefited with the recent advances being made in different sections of agricultural research and development.
