The Paddy is grown world-wide mostly by hand transplanting of seedlings in puddled soil. The farmers in many parts of the world are using different types of paddy transplanters that require mat-type seedlings.
Due to the complexity in operation of machine, its high cost, necessity of growing mat type seedlings & variation in efficiency of machine in different kinds of soil and also in different fields the pace of adoption of the transplanter is very slow in India.
The Direct Seeded Paddy (DSP) cultivation is picking pace with the development of some improved varieties as well as on account of development of effective weedicides. At present, the farmers are slowly adopting the DSR (Direct Seeded Rice) technology and are broadcasting dry seeds of paddy in well-pulverized soil. The mixing of seed in soil upon broadcasting by tillage equipments result into dispersal of seed at variable depth in randomized pattern, accounting to poor germinations of seed followed...
The Tomato being mainly grown for commercial as well as family consumption; is one of the most widely cultivated vegetables of Bishnupur District, Manipur. Due to the unavailability of disease resistant varieties, the farmers of Bishnupur District were facing a reduction in tomato yield during the Kharif season of 2012-13. The on-farm trial on varietal performance of Tomato var. Arka Rakshak was conducted during 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17. The yield performance and economic impact of the assessed technology were found higher than the farmers’ practice. From the success result of two years’ trial, the Front Line Demonstration on Popularization of Tomato var. Arka Rakshak was taken up during the Kharif season of 2017-18 and 2018-19.
Intervention process: To solve the farmers’ identified problems and enhance the Kharif tomato’s yield, the Tomato var. Arka Rakshak was introduced to about 230 farmers. The on-farm trials on the Varietal evaluation of Tomato were conducted...
The ICAR-Central Institute of Freshwater Aquaculture, Bhubaneswar developed the CIFABROODTM, a proven carp brood diet that is being demonstrated in seven states of the country including Tamil Nadu under a NFDB funded Project.
A landmark success has been achieved during the demonstration with the successful breeding (Off-Season) of Indian Major Carps (IMC) for the first time in the country in December - 2019 to January - 2020 in a private and a government hatchery. The Monsoon occurs twice in Tamil Nadu every year and rainfall during North-East Monsoon (October-December) is more than South-West (June-August). But, the report (http://www.dahd.nic.in) shows the drastic reduction in the seed production in Tamil Nadu in the last several Years mainly due to the non-synchronization of the Monsoon rain with the breeding period of the fishes.
The IMCs here normally matures during May-June as it happens elsewhere in the country but farmers are unable to breed...
