Institutional Interventions as enabling support systems

Real time pest dynamics (RTPD) studies for rice, pigeonpea, groundnut and tomato crops across seven, six, five and seven locations, respectively from 11 agro-climatic zones were carried out for the fifth year with 23 and 17 locations implementing kharif 2015 and rabi 2015-16 pest surveillance plans.

Prediction of pest scenarios of Spodoptera litura Fab. in peanut growing areas of India during future climate

 

A study were made to predict pest scenario of tobacco caterpillar, Spodoptera litura. Fab.at four peanut growing locations of India viz., Dharwad (15° 28’ N, 75° 2’ E), Raichur (16°12’ N, 77° 25’ E), Junagadh (21° 31’ N, 70° 36’E ) and Jalgaon (21° 5’ N, 75° 40’ E) using A1B PRECIS which provides GCM Model of future data on daily maximum (T.max), minimum (T.min) air temperatures.

Fodder bank in NICRA Villages

 

Availability of suitable varieties of fodder seed for delayed planting situation is a serious constraint for implementation of contingency plans in NICRA villages. To fulfill the requirement of the green fodder in NICRA villages during off season, drought season etc, fodder bank was established under NICRA project with high yielding improved varieties of fodder such as multi cut fodder (pearl millet, sorghum), maize (Yashwant grass, MP Chari, African tall ), hybrid napier (BNH-10, CO-3, NB-), lucerne (RL-88), multi cut baif (bajra), oat (Kent, JHO – 822), sorghum (CSV-15, CSH-24), berseem (J.H.B-146, Vardan), maize (MP Chari). These varieties have higher nutritive value and enabled farmers to have round the year the production of green fodder.
