Slide7: Ministry of Rural Development (DPAP, DDP, IWDP) Ministry of Environment & Forests (IAEPS) Ministry of Agriculture (NWDPRA, RVP,FPR, WDPSCA) Planning Commission (Western Ghat and Hill Area Development) NABARD (WDF) UNDER IMPLEMENTATION -WATERSHED DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMMES OF Slide8: SO IS THE PROPOSED DRYLAND FARMING SCHEME A DUPLICATION? No Targets individual farm holdings instead of watershed area A multilayered response to monsoon failure / water deficiency Watershed development along with farm improvement, address trio concerns of ecosystem, farming-livestock systems and livelihood especially for landless. Stand alone water bodies can not achieve desired result. Must be combined with appropriate technological support These include water management, in-situ water conservation, on-farm generation of organic manure, alternate land use, cropping system and diversification into agri-horti-livestock. Slide9: PROJECT COMPONENT - On farm rain water management Development of farm ponds Well recharging In-situ moisture conservation Promotion of conservation tillage techniques - Bed planting Inter row/ plough water harvesting managemen To integrate with other on-going projects of different Ministries/Agencies Slide10: AREA OF OPERATION CRITERIA FOR INCLUSION Less than 750 mm rainfall less than 30% coverage under assured irrigation, e.g. Like States of Maharashtra, Gujarat, MP., A.P., Karnataka, Rajasthan, Tamilnadu Farm holdings in rainshadow and drought prone areas Slide11: Ministry of Agriculture DRDA State Agriculture Department Tech support ICAR, CRIDA, CAZRI Tech support SAUs, Local ICAR Institutes Panchayat Farmer DELIVERY MECHANISM District KVK/ KGK TECHNOLOGY FUNDSSlide12: SHARING OF SYSTEM COST Average cost per hectare may range from Rs. 33000 to Rs. 50000 Proposed financial assistance to farmers- 50% of unit cost proposed sharing of system cost - 50% by GOI - 50% by farmers through own resources or loan from bankSlide13: EXPECTED OUTCOME / IMPACT Stabilize / enhance production in dry land areas Assure income to individual farm families Insulate poor and marginal farmers from weather vagaries Restore ecological balance of natural resources Increase biodiversity at farm levelSlide14: COVERAGE UNDER THE PROJECT ( Rs. in crores) Component 2005-06 2006-07 ( i) In situ moisture conservation/ 565 745 utilization (ii) On-farm production & use of organic 45 60 matter (iii) Alternate land use/composite farming 180 240 system (iv) Capacity building and extension 90 120 Others (monitoring& evaluation) 45 60 Total 925 1225 Note: Average holding : 2 ha No. of holdings : 1.8 to 2.8 lakh Per holding Government support : Rs. 33000 to 50000Slide15: PROPOSED FINANCIAL OUTLAY (Rs. in crores)Slide16: Thank you You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
