Achievements

Improved Method of Jhum cultivation programme

The production of Jhum rice has been increased of 991 kg per hectare in 2009-10 from the level of 690 kg/ ha in 1972.

Increasing productivity of rice

Successful seed replacement, increased irrigation potential, use of Bio fertilizer which support sustainable soil management and over all adoption of integrated crop Management practices including system of Rice Intensification (SRI), helped to increase the productivity rice from 978 kg/ha during 1971-72, to 2,607 kg/ha in 2009-10.

Bio-fertilizer production

Bio-fertilizer production has been increased from 1 ton in 1998 to 258 tons at the end of 2009-2010 in the state.

Agriculture Technology Management Agency (ATMA)

Four district training institutes and Farm information and Advisory Centers have been established in four districts with one Agri Poly clinic at the State Headquarter in Arundhutinagar.

The state Agriculture Management and Extension training Institute (T-SAMETI) has been established at Lembucherra, Farmers schools were undertaken covering all major crops and Field days were conducted for dissemination of new technology to farmers.
