Progress report of Others Projects (April 2018 to March 2019)
1. Attracting and Retaining Youth in Agriculture (ARYA) Project, KVK-Rajkot-1:

   Gujarat is third largest producer of oilseeds and covers 30% groundnut production of the country. The area and productivity of groundnut in the state was highest with 18.05 lakh ha and 1870 kg/ha respectively. Gujarat Ranks 4th in terms of Milk Production in the country which is about 8.1% of entire country. Due to difficulty in marketing the crops and support prices, farmers are selling agricultural produces and raw milk directly to local market and not getting satisfactory income. This may be supplemented by promoting the concepts of value addition of various agricultural commodities and milk processing enterprises at rural level. By utilization of available technologies like processing of oilseeds, spices, grains and milk at rural level and marketing of value added products, satisfactory income can be obtained at rural level.

   Rajkot district has population of 38,04,558 and out of which about to 65 % population is youth. Most of the people are engaged in farming and animal husbandry.The major crops grown in the district are groundnut, cotton, wheat, garlic, oninon and cumin. Farmers are earning from selling agricultural produces and raw milk directly to local market. This region has mostly rainfed area where the water scarcity is main issue. Lower price of agricultural commodities is the second most issue of the region. The youth of this village and surrounding area are migrated to Rajkot city for employment. Looking to the situation, KVK, Rajkot has taken up value addition and milk processing enterprises concept for Rajkot district.

    The ARYA project was started during the year 2015-16 at KVK Rajkot-1, Gujarat. At present KVK, Rajkot-1 is working for four talukas of Rajkot district namely (i) Jasdan (ii) Padadhari (iii) Vinchhiya (iv) Rajkot.  KVK, Rajkot-1 was identified for the objective of post-harvest technology, processing and value addition concept under ARYA project. Entrepreneurship development activities have been started with focus of processing, value addition, milk processing and nursery management.

1. Objectives of the ARYA Project: 

  • To attract and empower the youth in rural areas to take up various agriculture, allied and service sector enterprises for sustainable income and gainful employment in selected districts.
  • To enable the farm youth to establish network groups to take up resources and capital intensive activities like post-harvest technology, processing & value addition, nursery management, milk processing and marketing.
  • To demonstrate functional linkage with different institutions and stakeholders for convergence of opportunities available under various schemes/program for sustainable development of youth

2. Major Activities Commenced:

    Activities like project awareness programmes, training and capacity building programmes, visits at developed enterprises and motivate youth for entrepreneurship; empowering youth in rural areas by processing, value addition and marketing of agricultural produces and functional linkage with different institutions were commenced under ARYA project.

2.1 Training / Project Awareness Programmes:

Progress Report on Collaborative Research Project on “Implementation of IPM technology in groundnut crop with farmers’ participatory mode of approach on wide-area basis”

During the month of March-April 2019, with PI of this project Dr. A. M. Bharadiya, Associate Research Scientist and Dr. B. B. Kabariya (Co-PI), Programme Coordinator collected literature related to integrated pest management of groundnut crop, created information base for integrated pest management for groundnut crop, developed location specific IPM module for groundnut crop as well as conduct a general meeting to finalized action plan to implement project in selected village and visited the selected village viz; Bhadla from Jasadan taluka of Rajkot district on 15th May 2019 and carried out base line survey of village and farmer’s meeting at village as well as selected farmers for implementation of project on groundnut crop.

    In farmer’s meeting, we discussed and interacted with farmer’s community among the research project, especially IPM module on groundnut crop. We motivate the farmers to work on different technology of concerned module as well as we gave informations of concerned module in detail. As per the module, we aware farmers to use high yielding improved variety and to adopt recommended plant protection measures viz;. In Groundnut crop, for white grub management, seed treatment of chlorpyriphos @ 25 ml/kg seed before sowing, furrow application of phorate @ 10 kg/ha before sowing, in case of sever infestation drenching of chlorpyriphos @ 25 ml/10 litre of water and install light trap. For stem rot management, seed treatment of tebuconazole @ 1.5 g/kg of seed before sowing, application of Trichoderma @ 2.5 kg/ha enriched in 250 kg/ha castor cake or FYM @ 100 kg/ha and soil drenching of Trichoderma @ 2.5 kg/ha at 30 days after sowing.

6.      Cluster Frontline Demonstrations on oil seeds under NMOOP

NMOOP was launched in April, 2014 keeping in view achievements of the erstwhile schemes namely, Integrated Scheme of Oilseeds, Oil Palm and Maize (ISOPOM), Three Born Oilseeds (TBOs) and Oil Palm Area Expansion (OPAE) programme during the 11th Plan period. The schemes had a positive impact on production and productivity of oilseeds and area expansion under Oil Palm. NMOOP comprising 3 Mini Mission (MM), one each for Oilseeds (MM-I), Oil Palm (MM-II) and Tree Borne Oilseeds-TBOs (MM-III) was launched from April, 2014.

Objectives:

  • To increase production and productivity of oilseeds crops under different agro-ecological situations.
  • To pilot innovations and improved efficiency within the overall objective of the scheme and its expected outcomes.
  • To undertake mitigation/restoration activities in case of natural calamities in the oilseeds sector.
