Contingent Plan-2013 -14 • Under post kharif season, crops like Black Gram, Maize will be grown. • Promotion of Khesari, Toria, like crop will also increase area & production of Pulse & Oilseed crops even under rainfed condition. • Rabi crops like Wheat, Mustard, Lentil, Maize, Groundnut & Summer crops like Sesame and Moong are the best suited crops under West Bengal situation. 57

Challenges & Strategies ………. . Challenges: 1. Departure of rainfall from normal rhythm particularly in rainy months, 2. Reduced span of winter period to grow cold loving Rabi crops resulting restricted VRR, 3. More than 64% of the Geographical Area is under cultivation with 180% cropping intensity & putting pressure on natural resources. 4. High cost of Phosphatic & Potassic fertilizer facilitates imbalanced NPK ratio in

Strategies: 1. Under Low area & High productivity Zone, increased C/Q Seed availability from increased Seed Certification Programme. 2. Under High area & low productivity zone, increased Mechanization with Zero Till machine & use of quality seed. 3. Utilization of potential Rice fallow areas under Relay(poira) cropping of Lentil, Khesari, Toria & mustard. 4. Integrated Planning for supply of Quality Resources to the production systems. 5. Increased production of Vermicompost, other low cost indigenous nutrient sources & increased employment generation, 6. Reducing the Gap of IPC & IPU. 7. Better income realization by farmers with market linkage 59

‘ ‘Area Expansion’. – Strategic Technological Tools : 1. Farm Mechanization with Zero/Minimal seed-drill

‘ ‘Area Expansion’. – Strategic Technological Tools : 1. Farm Mechanization with Zero/Minimal seed-drill to utilize residual moisture for timely sowing of Wheat, Pulses & Oilseeds. 2. Extension of Intercropping, Mixed cropping, Relay cropping of Pulse, Oilseed & Maize to low lying Rice Fallow & upland field during Early/Rabi and Rabi season respectively, 3. Expansion of irrigation potential & reducing the gap between IPC & IPU through micro irrigation, Reduction of conveyance loss, Soil & Water conservation and Dry land & rainfed farming, & to convert cultivable Waste land to cultivated Land. 4. Research with new crops & varieties & under diversified soil and changing climatic condition for improved SRR & VRR.

‘‘Vertical Expansion’ through ‘Productivity Augmentation’. – Strategic Technological Tools : – Increased Seed &Variety

‘‘Vertical Expansion’ through ‘Productivity Augmentation’. – Strategic Technological Tools : – Increased Seed &Variety Replacement rate. – Expanding SRI Boro Area & with saved water resources, increasing irrigated Wheat, Pulse, Oilseed & Maize cultivation. – Training , Extension & e-Governance. – Farm mechanization : Electrical pumps, Zero till seed drill, Tractor, Power. Tiller, Drum Seeder , Delivery Pipe etc. – Soil Health Management & Soil Test based nutrient Management, INM & IPM, – Resource conservation technology: Mulching, Efficient irrigation Conveyance , to holding size of the farmers.

‘Better income’ realization by farmers – Providing alternative input production capacity to farmers through: Azolla/Vermi/Compost/Green/Leaf manuring. – Demonstration & research on Integrated Farming System with livelihood support, – Selection of popular market crops and varieties, – Better provision of Storage and linking post harvest processing to Agro-Industries in PPP mode for value addition. – Reducing cost of production: Stress on location specific technology development integrating the ITKs. – Providing bio-fertilizers, bio-pesticides etc to combat high cost P & K Fertilizers &synthetic pesticides.

Prioritised Issues of West Bengal • Due to Climatic aberration during Kharif & Rabi, early Duration Rabi Varieties of Wheat, Lentil, Mustard, Khesari (Lathyrus), Groundnut, Sunflower with high yield potentiality under the region and availability of Quality/Certified seeds and it’s integration with Seed Rolling Plan. • Intensified Mechanisation programme with funding support as per choice of farmers for high area with low productivity zone. • Resource conservation technology with Zero Till/FIRB or other technological Tools for Rabi crops like Wheat, Rice, Maize, Pulses & Oilseeds. • Marketing infrastructure for increased price realization • Micro-Irrigation facility with rational subsidies under all the Departments.
