CPS 18-14/2014-NFSM
Subject: - Approval of projects submitted by Sher-e-Kashmir
University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Jammu,
Jammu under National Food Security Mission (NFSM)regarding.
Under NFSM, there is a provision of funds for adaptive research
project during the XII plan. The Guidelines for the Adaptive Research
Project has been approved and circulated (23.10.2013) to all SAUs and
ICAR. After circulation of guidelines, a meeting with all SAUs was held on
3rd Dec, 2013 under Chairmanship of Agriculture Commissioner. In the
meeting, all SAUs were asked that the concept note of research project
should in areas/themes of research focusing on rice, wheat, coarse
cereals and pulses to be submitted. The institutional charges for the
project would be admissible as per norms of Institute/organization
maximum up to 10% of the project cost except ICAR.
After receiving the concept note of research projects, a committee
comprising of Agriculture Commissioner, JS (Crops) and ADC (Crops)
was screened. After screening of concept notes, only 85 concept notes
were selected. SAUs were asked to submit the detailed project on
screened concept notes. After receiving the detailed project proposal, a
meeting was held on 27th Feburary, 2014 under the Chairmanship of
Agriculture Commissioner at Krishi Bhawan and Director, IIPR, ADG
(FFC), Principal Scientist of DWR, Karnal and CRRI, Cuttack
participated.
After detailed discussion in meeting, the following points were
emerged: It was unanimously decided that the project proposals submitted
by SAUs will address the various issues pertaining to productivity
enhancement of food crops in different agro-ecologies. ICAR
institutes have not undertaken such types of projects in the
areas submitted by SAUs.
As per approved guidelines of Strategy Research Projects under
NFSM, each detailed project proposal should be reviewed by a
panel of three experts. Since, views of the experts are taken, thus
further examination of the project proposals is not required.
Most of the technologies included in the project proposals are for
addressing production constraints of area specific nature and need
to be demonstrated at farmers fields to bridge the yield gap of
crops.
In this context, summary of the one of the project submitted by SKUAST,
Jammu entitled quality seed production for higher productivity of pulses
through farmers participatory programme in Shiwalik foot hills of
Jammu region.
Name of the Project: quality seed production for higher productivity of
pulses through farmers participatory programme in Shiwalik foot hills of
Jammu region
Institute/organization Name: Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural
Sciences and Technology, Jammu
Project Investigator: Dr. Brij Nandan
Duration: Three Years (2014-15 to 2016-17)

Budget Proposal: 96.96 Lakhs


Objective:
To educate the farmers through, demonstrations and exposure
visits for production of quality seed of pulses in farmer participatory
approach.
TO empower the farmers of domain to establish village based
quality seed production systems to achieve self sufficiency in quality
seeds of farmer-preferred improved pulse varieties, at the village
level
Popularization of pulse production and protection technologies
coupled with quality seed of pulses in traditional and nontraditional areas of Jammu region for resource conservation,
enhancing input in use efficiency through research
demonstration

Expected outcome
- Vertical as well as horizontal expansion of pulses is possible with
the availability of quality seed which in turn will enhance the food
and nutritional security options and improves socio-economic
status of the majority of poor vegetarian farmers of Shiwalik
foothills of Jammu region
- At least 9 (3 district x 3 villages) vibrant and sustainable model
farmer-based seed production units will be established at village
level to meet the local demand of farmers.
- The availability of quality seeds will enhance the input use
efficiency as in absence of quality seed the investment on
fertilizers, water, weedicides, pesticides, and other inputs will not
pay the desired dividends.
- 225 demonstrations of pulse on production technologies shall
enhance the pulse area in the domain and develop confidence
among the farmers for pulse cultivation in their respective village
and the selected village shall be the model for other villages for
enhancing the quality seed production and area enhancement.
- There shall be significant enhancement in area and production of
food grains including pulses provides sustainable food, nutritional
and environmental security to resource poor farmers of the
domain.
- Higher cropping intensity thus will improve land use efficiency,
return and sustainable production system and helpful in
conserving natural resource which otherwise getting deteriorated
day by day by adaptation of cereal based cropping system.
- There will be sufficient production and availability of quality seed
in the region.
- An additional production of pulses by more than 30% shall be
achieved and the same will be a continuous feature, with
continuity of quality seed chain.
- Due to low water retirement of these crops than rice, wheat, maize
they will be helpful in mitigating the adverse effects of climate.
- Productivity in the rainfed as well as irrigate areas of Jammu
region of Shiwalik foot hills shall be enhanced.
