Agricultural productivity improve by modernization and technological upgrading. Development and adoption of new scientific methods and technological applications reduce production costs

Climate is changing and this change is becoming a challenge.Climate change has direct effects on productivity and quality of produce.Climate change indirectly effects soil fertility,crop health and also on our soil and water resources. We cannot change our climate but adoption of better agriculture management practices lessens the direct and indirect effects of climate change

Improvement in the quality of raw and processed agricultural products

There is a need to promote major improvements in storage, packing, standardization and transport of agri-food products.

Agriculture always requires strengthening of innovation processes through experience sharing of PPP models (public-private partnership)  and  IFS models (Integrated Farming system) among various stake holders. The farm sector investors should also have clear understanding of feasible project reports before sourcing funds for agri-business. Agricultural Value Chains should be strong enough to support Livelihood improvement programs. Environmental and social issues continue to share space in strategic analysis and implementation of programs run by developmental organizations. Agriculture science skills can help improve lifestyle among urban community through gardening and basic knowledge of day to day farm activities can improve livelihood of rural communities. Keeping these objectives in mind my currently work includes offering Gardening Classes and providing Agro consultancy Services to the very humble farmer. This contributes to their individual growth, strengthens the capacity of learner through this kind of vocational skill, catalyzes spirit of  learner’s contribution to community and national development

Agrarian crisis and Agricultural crisis – Issues and Solutions,Enhancing area under irrigation and achieving water use efficiency through PMKSY, Promoting Organic Farming through PKVY, Creating a National Integrated Market through National Agricultural Market,Promotion of Horticulture,Promoting Pulses and Oilseeds in Rice fallows have important place in Schemes and Policy Initiatives by Ministry of Agriculture & Farmers Welfare,Government of India

KHARIF season msp न्यूनतम समर्थन मूल्य (एम एस पी) रुपए प्रति क्विन्टल Minimum Support Price (MSP) for kharif crops season that are to be marketed in a particular year. Minimum Support/Procurement Price is Recommended by CACP and Fixed by Government. Pradhan Mantri KisanSamman Nidhi (PM-KISAN) and Pradhan Mantri Annadata Aay Sanrakshan Abhiyan (PM-AASHA) are important schemes for farmers. Price Support Scheme (PSS), Price Deficiency Payment Scheme (PDPS) and Private Procurement & Stockist Scheme (PPSS) are sub-schemes under Pradhan Mantri Annadata Aay Sanrakshan Abhiyan (PM-AASHA)

Includes all paid out costs such as those incurred on account of hired human labour, bullock labour/machine labour, rent paid for leased in land, expenses incurred on use of material inputs like seeds, fertilizers, manures, irrigation charges, depreciation on implements and farm buildings, interest on working capital, diesel/'electricity for operation of pump sets etc. miscellaneous expenses and imputed value of family labour

Agri TV channels in India such as DD kisan and Green TV may bring another revolution in transferring agricultural information to all regions.

Mini tractors such as Mitsubishi Shakti MT 180 D,Mahindra Yuvraj 215 NXT and Sonalika Gardentrac DI-20 reduce cost of operation upto 40 % as compared to the bullock ploughing in small farms.

Agricultural Implements, Farm Equipment, Agricultural Machinery, Tractors, Plows, Seeders, Tillers, Ploughs, Thresher, Straw reapers, Garden Tools, Garden Equipments, Garden Sprays .................... and the list goes on.

Farm Mechanization proved to be a boon for farmers.

Commonly multiple operations of cultivator, disc harrow and leveller are seen. Land leveller helps land to absorb water evenly.Laser Land Leveller may cost between Rs.3-4 lacs. Generally, tractor mounted laser land leveller is equipped with a hydraulic system control box unit attached to a receiver which receives laser rays from a tripod stand transmitter kept at a distance.



Land soil should be well tilled, loose and levelled to enable sowing at an adequate depth.Submerged rice cultivation,unscientific use of fertilizer,gas emission from livestock and low organic matter in soil have increased climate change risks.Adoption of organic farming,agroforestry,crop diversification and crop alignment,climate resilient crop varieties(they can withstand climate change challenge),soil health card based integrated nutrient management,effficient use of water and water harvesting,feed management of livestock are some of the agricultural management practices which can reduce climate change risks.

Selection of good variety remains one of the low cost inputs for farmers.

Seed dressing fungicides like Thiram and Captan have been widely used in various crops.WHEAT seed can also with Captan or Thiram @ 3 g/kg seed for the control of root rot, foot rot, seedling blight, black tip and black spot of glumes. Captan and Thiram treatment should not be done earlier than one month of sowing as it affects seed germination

Seed treatment before sowing the crop is useful in reducing losses. Before sowing treat the seed with Tebuconazole 2DS e.g.Raxil, Bayer @ 40g or seed treatment with Carboxin e.g.Vitavax, Dhanuka @ 80 g or premix Carboxin 37.5% + Thiram 37.5%  e.g. Vitavax Power, Dhanuka @120 g per 40 kg seed

pre-mix combination of Carboxin 17.5 %+ Thiram 17.5 % FF (e.g.Provax 200 FF, Chemtura; Viatvax Ultra, Dhanuka) can be done to prevent loose smut and flag smut. Seed treatment should be done with seed treating drum. Vitavax Ultra may be applied @ 2.5 ml/kg wheat seed

pre-mix formulations of 3 fungicides in 1 pack (Tebuconazole + Prothioconazole + Metalaxyl),e.g. Raxil Easy,a seed treatment product for the control of loose smut disease in wheat.

Seed Treatment of Wheat GEHUN Kanak with seed dressing fungicide pre-mix combination of Carboxin 17.5 %+ Thiram 17.5 % FF (e.g. Provax 200 FF, Chemtura; Viatvax Ultra, (Dhanuka) can be done to prevent loose smut and flag smut. Seed treatment should be done with seed treating drum

gehun kanak WHEAT seed treatment with Flowable Suspension fungicide such as Tebuconazole 5.4% FS is an effective wheat seed treatment to prevent loose smut disease and flagsmut disease.It is also effective in preventing,root rot,collar rot and wilt disease in some crops. Tebuconazole 25.9% EC is a broad spectrum fungicide to manage diseases such as rice blast,sheath blight in rice,onion purple blotch,chilli fruit rot and rust in groundnut

Loose smut of wheat caused by fungus Ustilago tritici is a common disease throughout the wheat-growing regions. कंडुवा रोग बीज जनित रोग है। The name loose smut describes the characteristic symptoms of the diseased heads as they extend from the boot in late spring. The kernels and glumes (chaff) are converted into black fungal spores which blow away, leaving only a sooty appearing rachis or spike. 

Another fungus Urocystis agropyri causes flag smut diseases in wheat.Infected leaves and leaf sheaths exhibit white to yellow streaks that turn grey and then black. The leaves may droop and be thin and stunted with grass-like appearance.झंडा कंडुवा रोग पत्तियों को प्रभावित करता है

Use disease-free seed to prevent Karnal bunt disease in wheat. This disease is caused by fungus Nevossia indica. गेहूँ का करनाल बंट रोग संक्रमण होने पर दाना काला पड़ जाता है और खाने योग्य नहीं रहता। Incidence is more during during Feb- March due to fluctuating weather conditions

Yellow rust of wheat पीला रतुआ अथवा पीला गेरूआ रोग Yellow-Peela Ratua also known as stripe rust,caused by Puccinia striiformis- Ek FAFOONDI se hone waali beemari.This disease appears if cold temperature with intermittent rains prevail.Spray the crop with Propiconazole 25 EC e.g.Tilt,Syngenta @ 1 ml / litre water using power sprayer or tractor mounted boom sprayers.

Brown rust or leaf rust in wheat is caused by the fungus Puccinia recondita भूरा रतुआ अथवा भूरा गेरूआ रोग में गोल या अण्डाकार धब्बे पत्ती के ऊपरी हिस्से पर दिखाई देते है

Growing rust resistant varieties like WH 1105, HD 3086, PBW 725, PBW 677 or tolerant varieties such as PBW 621, DBW-17 and PBW-550 especially in rust prone areas.  Spray the crop with Propiconazole 25 EC e.g.Tilt, Syngenta @ 1 ml / litre water using power sprayer or tractor mounted boom sprayers

Rusts and powdery mildew in wheat may also be managed by using premix combination fungicides like Azoxystrobin 11 % + Tebuconazole 18 % (e.g.Custodia, Makhteshim Agan)

Tebuconazole is a systemic triazole fungicide which act against a wide spectrum of diseases in many crops by protective, curative and eradicative action.They inhibit the reproduction and further growth of the target fungus by interfering in the process of building the structure of the fungal cell wall.

Nativo 75 WG,Bayer contains a formulation of Tebuconazole + Trifloxystrobin which is effective in managing sheath blight disease in rice field.

Soil Test Report should be seen before sowing new crop.

GYPSUM जिप्सम खरिया मिट्टी @ 100 kg per acre at the time of sowing when WHEAT is grown in sandy soil, and the soil test report says the field is deficient in sulfur. The symptoms of sulphur deficiency in cereal crop show uniform chlorosis first appearing on new leaves. In case of sulphur deficiency in wheat, the upper leaves become light green and later on yellow but the lower leaves remain green

Apply MICRONUTRIENTS to correct the deficiency of manganese and SULPHUR WHEAT - In case of sulphur deficiency, the upper leaves become light green and later on yellow but the lower leaves remain green. Sulphur S is a secondary macronutrient and its a structural component of some amino acids and vitamins. Sulfur is not a part of chlorophyll molecule but needed for formation of chloroplasts

MICRONUTRIENT Deficiency in WHEAT - In light textured soils, where wheat follows paddy, manganese deficiency generally appears. The interveinal portion of the middle leaves become light greyish yellow to pinkish brown and the veins remain green, forming strips. 

Wheat crop may show symptoms of zinc deficiency after application of first irrigation in case of light textured and reclaimed soils. Third and fourth leaves of wheat plant from the top become yellow in the middle, while the tip and bottom remain green. Approx. 25 kg zinc sulphate (21%) per acre may be broadcasted by mixing with the same quantity of dry soil

Urea, DAP or SSP, Potash fertilizers could be applied in reduced quantity in loamy sand soil as compared to sandy loam soil 

Urea may be applied @ 50 kg/acre with first irrigation in normal light soils. Urea application at later stage in wheat gehu kanak crops may be done on the basis of fertilizer applied to previous crop,soil test report or by using leaf colour chart LCC
