INTRODUCTION
In the wake of the declaration of a Crop Holiday by a section of the farmers of the Konaseema area of East Godavari district of Andhra Pradesh state, the Government of Andhra Pradesh (GoAP) constituted a Committee vide G.O. Rt. No.934 Agriculture & Cooperation (FP.II) Department, dated 12.08.2011 with the following as Members. 1. Dr. Mohan Kanda, I.A.S.,(Retd.) 2. Dr. M.V. Rao, MLC (Former Vice Chancellor, ANGRAU) 3. Sri C.Muralidhar, Engineer-in-Chief FAC (Irrigation), I&CAD 4. Dr. K. Prathap Reddy (Former Director, IRMA, Anand, Gujarat) 5. Dr. R. Sudhakar Rao Director of Research, ANGRAU 6. Smt. V. Usha Rani, I.A.S., Commissioner for Agriculture. : : : : : : Chairman Vice chairman Member Member Member Member Secretary

The terms of references of the Committee are as follows; 1. To identify the circumstances that led to declaration of crop holiday by the farmers. 2. To propose measures to prevent recurrence of such incidents.

3. To suggest suitable modifications to the cropping schedule in Konaseema region, so that risks of weather and market are minimized. 4. To suggest methods of increasing water use efficiency in Godavari Delta. This is to be achieved both Irrigation and drainage canal system. 5. To suggest methods of improving the profitability of Paddy crop.

The Committee visited the Konaseema area and interacted with the farmers to understand the circumstances leading to situation. The Committee also interacted with various farmers organizations, Officials from various departments, Federations, Corporations and Bankers.

It was reported to the Committee that high cost of cultivation not being covered by MSP, an ineffictive procurement system, storage capacity, crop failures on account of frequent cyclones, improper maintenance of the drainage system, late release of canal waters, nonavailability and high cost of labour and lack of suitable farm machinery or among the major reasons for declaring Crop Holiday.

Remedial measures suggested by the farmers and other bodies included sustained and pro-active procurement, desilting of canals,
2

ensuring availability of farm machinery on custom hiring basis, diversification of farming system, encouraging village based industries, removing encroachments in drains, reducing the cost of cultivation, medium term measures such as early opening of canals, repairs to the drainage system, enhancing storage facilities, announcement of the MSP and the export policy in advance, greater coordination among various departments and long term measures

such as the creation of agro-service centres, improving infrastructural facilities like roads etc.

Addressing the concerns expressed to the Committee had after consultations with various departments/agencies of the GoAP and GoI and many eminent economists and experts in the Agriculture and Allied Sectors, has arrived at recommendations which, it is hoped that it will help in the consolidation and strengthening the measures under way to address robust concerns relating to food and nutrition security presuming the inability of agricultural operations.
East Godavari district comprises 58 mandals out of which 51

mandals are classified as the Godavari Zone and 7 mandals as the High Altitude Tribal Area Zone according to the Agro-climatic Zones defined by the Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University (ANGRAU). In the Godavari Zone, the Central Delta, comprise the following 16 mandals, is also known as Konaseema.

It was reported that out of these, a Crop Holiday was observed in 13 mandals, in 4, out of which, namely, I.Polavaram, Katrenikona, Upalaguptam and Allavaram, it was almost total. As a result, 85,050 acres was not cultivated by the farmers during the present Kharif season.

It was brought to the notice of the Committee by the District Collector, East Godavari that Special Officers were deputed to each of the mandals to motivate the farmers to take up cultivation, despite which the situation did not change.

The reasons and remedial measures cited by farmers for declaring a Crop Holiday include Reasons: - Late release of canal water. - MSP not covering the actual cost of production. - Non-enforcement of existing MSP. - High cost of cultivation on account of high cost of labour and inputs. - Non-availability of labour in peak season of agricultural operation on account of NREGS.
-

Non availability of the Credit and quality inputs in time.

- Ineffective procurement. - Insufficient storage space. - Poor drainage maintenance. - Apprehensions about AP Land licensed cultivators ordinance. - Delayed settlements of crop insurance.

Remedial Measures suggested: - Closure of canals by 15th April and release of water by 15th May of every year. - Undertaking of repairs to irrigation canals, drainage channels and outfall sluices.

- Provision of a remunerative price in accordance with the National Commission on farmers to paddy as the present MSP does not cover the cost of production. - As, NREGS is affecting the agricultural operations as the labour are engaged by this programme. NREGS programme should be linked up with agricultural operations like transplantation, weeding, harvesting etc., will solve the problems of farmers. - FCI/State procurement agencies to procure Paddy produce on the lines of States of Chattisgarh and Punjab and export policy to be announced early i.e., before March. - Supply of subsidized (at 70%) subsidy suitable machines for cultivation to all categories of farmers. - A bonus of Rs.200/- per quintal Paddy is to be announced by the State Government. - Ensuring availability of quality inputs like fertilizer/pesticides/seed in time. - The period of the crop loan should be the crop year and not the financial year.

Steps taken by the Committee: After a briefing by the Officials concerned, the Committee proceeded to the Konaseema area on the 19th and 20th of August, 2011, and made field visits during which it met farmers at the following places. 1. Bendamurlanka Village of Allavaram mandal.
7

2. Allavaram Village of Allavaram mandal. 3. Farmers from all mandals of Amalapuram division at Amalapuram. It was observed that a section of the farmers desisted from cultivation of crops in some areas as reported by the Agriculture Department. Several representations were received from various bodies representing the farmers such as Bharatiya Kisan Sangh, Konaseema Parirakshana Samithi, Rythu Sangham, Water

Bheemunipalli

Management Committee Associations, Sir Arthur Cotton Barrage Committee etc.,

A number of public representatives and farmers also interacted with the Committee and explained in detail the problems being faced by them. A gist of the various representations is at Annexure-I

After holding wide ranging discussions with the groups and individuals, public representatives, organizations, the Committee held a series of meetings with the officials belonging to the Departments of Irrigation, Marketing, Civil Supplies, Animal Husbandry, Rural Development and Horticulture as well as , A.P.Agro Industries Development Corporation, AP state Dairy Development Federation, the National Agricultural Insurance Corporation and representatives of the Lead Bank of the State-Level Bankers Committee, to ascertain their views.

I) Circumstances that led the declaration of a Crop Holiday


Andhra Pradesh has for long been considered the rice bowl of India contributing about 14% of the rice production of the Country. Paddy occupies 35% of the total cropped area of the State and was grown in 29.22 lakh ha in the Kharif season and 18.30 lakh ha in the Rabi season during 2010-11. (Annexure 2a, 2b).

Estimated Paddy production in the Kharif season was 112.64 Lakh MT and in the Rabi season was 103.64 Lakh MT, totaling to 216.28 Lakh MT, during the year 2010-11. East Godavari district alone contributed 31.05 Lakh MT, of which the share of Amalapuram division was 5.03 Lakh MT (Annexure 2c, 2d, 2e ). After a critical examination of the various issues related to paddy crop cultivation, production and procurement, the Committee felt that the following circumstances led the farmers of East Godavari desisting from taking up cultivation of paddy in the Kharif season, 2011. 1. Cost of cultivation: The production cost of paddy per quintal as estimated by the Department of Agriculture (based on the methodology of CACP) and the MSP declared during the last three years are as follows. (Annexure 3a, 3b, 3c, 3d).

(*) Based on the recommendations of the National Farmers' Commission.

The cost of cultivation in Amalapuram region is even higher (Rs 1583/- per quintal) because of the higher labour cost and higher use of inputs etc.(Annexure 3e, 3f, 3g, 3h)

2. Vulnerability to natural calamities:

Amalapuram division is exposed to various natural calamities such as floods and cyclones apart spells of heavy rainfall. A list of natural calamities during the past three years and assistance extended to the Amalapuram revenue division is at Annexure (4a, 4b, 4c, 4d, 4e, 4f).

10

In case of calamities, the payment of compensation is usually being delayed, as reported by the farmers, resulting in approaching the money lenders for investment for the next crop.

3. Drainage system: The drainage system comprises major and minor drains maintained by the Irrigation Department, and revenue drains maintained by the farmers themselves. All the drains constitute an integrated system and malfunction in one of the drains, hamper the efficiency of the whole system resulting in the submergence of crops.

4. Water release in Canals: The Committee was informed that in the earlier days (i.e. prior to 1995) canal waters used to be released every year by the 25th of May thus enabling the farmers to complete transplantation by the third week of June. As a result, the crop used to attain enough height to withstand submergence caused by heavy rains in July and August. The crop was also normally harvested much before the onset of the cyclone season namely November/December.

Of late, water is being released only in the second or third week of June resulting in delayed transplantation (extending to July) and delayed harvest (extending to November/December). This has led to submergence
11

of the crop (following .rains in August/September and cyclones in November/December) and a consequent fall in the productivity as well as the quality of the paddy. Details of heavy rains and cyclones are at Annexure (4a, 4b, 4c, 4d, 4e, 4f).

Delayed transplantation of the Kharif crop also delays

the

operations of Rabi and summer pulse crops, leading once again to delay in the closure of the canal beyond March.

5. Availability of Labour: Shortage of labour is also a major issue in this area. In all the 16 mandals put together, Kharif paddy is taken up in about 51211 ha. During the transplantation period, within a short span of fifteen days, large numbers of labour are required (Annexure 5). During the earlier years, there was migration of labour from other districts like Srikakulam, Vizianagaram etc. In the recent years, however, this has reduced substantially on account of an increase in other opportunities. Normally, when faced with a labour shortage, farmers switch to less labour intensive horticulture crops. This alternative, unfortunately, is not available in the Konaseema region, paddy being at present, the only option. Lands which are at elevated places are already being utilized for raising coconut plantations.
12

Shortage of labour has not yet been tackled by the modernization of mechanisation in a sufficient scale in transplanting and harvesting. Transplanters and combined harvesters which are very popular in other parts of Andhra Pradesh are also not suitable for use in the heavy loamy and clay soils of this region.

6. The tenancy system: It was reported to the Committee that an informal tenancy system is common in this area and covers nearly 50 60% of the sown area. In view of the prevailing high cost of cultivation, the number of bags of paddy given as rent to the owners has reduced in recent years. The prevailing

rate is reported as 10 bags in Kharif and 15 bags in Rabi. The lessee faces additional problems such as the non-availability of credit and inputs including seed, fertilizer etc., as well as access to the prevailing MSP making paddy cultivation very un-remunerative. Thus, in the prevailing situation, neither the owner nor the lessee is happy with farming. GoAP recently piloted the passage of a legislation to address the needs of tenant farmers through an Ordinance A.P. Land Licensed Cultivation Ordinance 2011 (No. 17 dated: 08-06-2011) which entitles the lessee to an input and loan eligibility card. The owner farmers appear to entertain certain apprehensions about the implications of this initiative, resulting in strained relations between owner and tenant.
13

7. Procurement: Farmers in this area lost most of the kharif 2010 crop on account of the Jal Cyclone. They harvested a good crop in Rabi 2011 as in other parts of the State. The response of the public procurement system could not adequately meet the demand for (a) purchasing dis-coloured paddy of Kharif, 2010 and (b) purchasing excess production from Rabi, 2011. Many farmers complained that even the Minimum Support Price was not

forthcoming and that they had to resort to distress sales.

Most of the paddy is purchased through rice millers, who buy it from farmers and deliver the levy to the FCI in the ratio of 75:25. That is, 75% of rice milled is handed over to FCI and balance 25% is sold in the open market. There are, however, many restrictions in selling the 25% also, only 50% of this rice can be sold outside the State, and that, after

obtaining requisite permits from the Department of Civil Supplies.

Though the Civil Supplies Corporation buys paddy through the centres opened by Self Help Groups, the Groups are not very effective in this area, not being properly equipped or trained.

Milling capacity processing the

in the District is

more

what is required for

local production. The Committee was told that it is

common practice for the millers to buy paddy from the nearby States of Chattisgarh, Orissa etc., mill and deliver the rice to FCI towards the levy
14

obligation. In years of good production, estimates of which are, unfortunately, not sufficiently accurate, this practice has the potential to lead to a crash in prices in local markets and to force the farmers to resort distress sales.

There is also, clearly, a shortage of storage facilities in this area, the available space being only 17500 MT. According to the information collected from Food Corporation of India, against the target of 100 lakh MT. the procurement was only 86 lakh MT. as on 08.09.2011. (Annexures 6a, 6b, 6c).

II) Measures to Prevent Recurrence of Such Incidents:


(1) Opening of canals: The Committee recommends that subject to availability of water flows, Canals ought to be opened mandatorily between the 15th of May and the 25th May and closed by the 1st of April, thus leaving 45 days for the maintenance. There should be only 45 days of closing period for the canals. The Irrigation Department should draw up an advance Action Plan for the completion of maintenance works in those 45 days. If this is done, the paddy crop, whether taken up by direct sowing or through transplantation, can escape the impact of Cyclones which occur frequently in the month of November.

15

Modernization of the canal system, for which a programme has already been sanctioned at the cost of Rs.3,361 crores, is yet to be grounded. The reason stated by the Irrigation Department is that there is no proper response from the Contractors, mainly due to insufficient working period. The Irrigation Department perhaps needs to examine the distributaries of repackaging or resizing the reaches, calling for tenders and ensure that the task is taken up as early as possible. Modernisation also needs to be taken up in a phased manner covering something like a quarter of the Delta area each year, to enable sufficient working period. Care needs to be taken however, that farmers are informed in advance and taken into confidence, about the schedule and to ensure completion of the works in the scheduled area. The water requirement for the entire East Godavari and West Godavari districts is met from the Dowleswaram Barrage, which is reportedly getting silted up. The Irrigation Department needs to take up maintenance and desilting operations, so that the storage capacity of the Barrage is maintained and Kharif and Rabi crops can be grown without fear of water shortage.

16

2) Improvement in Drainage System: The Committee was told that most of the revenue drains are encroached affecting free flow of water. Fishermen are also reportedly placing nets in the canals obstructing water flow. Eviction of encroachments and obstructions from the drains needs immediate attention.

The Irrigation Department also needs to take up repairs of existing drains and outflow sluices on a regular basis, so that the impact of natural calamities is minimized. (3) Farm Mechanisation: It was reported to the Committee the shortage in availability of labour for agriculture operations, is compounded by the lack of availability of suitable farm machinery, impeding the imperative for shifting to mechanization.

Implements such as Paddy Weeders, Paddy driers and Small transplanters etc., need to be provided on top priority and adequate funds allotted for the purpose. There is need also to enhance the pace and focus on Research and Development (R&D) activity on farm mechanization, with a view to providing appropriate and adequate farm machinery for this area and other different agro ecological situations in the State.
17

Small tractors, small transplanters and light weight combined harvesters should be made available for custom hiring from Agro Service Stations. Such stations can be maintained by the Farmers groups/local PACS/entrepreneurs on a regionally differentiated Best Actor syndrome. It is estimated that 3000 Agro Service Stations are required for the entire State and 100 for Konaseema region. The investments required (to the tune of Rs. 2500 crores) can be mobilized from Banks and RKVY in the coming 3 4 years, which can perhaps be implemented on terms and conditions to be worked out on the lines of the special scheme being implemented by the Agriculture Department. 4) Minimum Support Price: The Agriculture Departments estimate which is enclosed at Annexures 3a, 3b, 3c, 3d, estimated that the cost of production per quintal for the year 2011-12 for Paddy common variety would be Rs.1270/- and for Grade A Rs.1355/-. The MSPs announced by the Government of India was only Rs.1080/- and Rs.1110/-respectively. The cost of

producing one quintal of Paddy is much more in Konaseema (Statement enclosed at Annexure 3g, 3h). The National Commission on Farmers recommended fixation of the Minimum Support Price at 50% above the actual cost of production per quintal. The State Government also recommended for fixation of MSP at Rs.1905/- for common and Rs. 2033/- for grade A paddy for the year 2011-12. The National
18

Commission also recommends that The State Government will have to undertake reforms speedily in order to provide more options to the farmers for selling their produce, allowing the private sector, including Co-operatives, to develop markets, direct sales to consumer and remove bottlenecks.

In this context, it is relevant to note that the recommendations made by the CACP to the Government of India recently in fixation of MSP and movement access:

1)

The procurement norms should be strictly adhered to in the future. The excess stocks should be liquidated either by selling in the open market within the country at an appropriate price not below the MSP, or timely use them for the welfare schemes at subsidized prices depending on the budget of those schemes.

2)

The government has banned the export of wheat in October 2007 and prohibited the export of rice in April 2008. These restrictions should be lifted and since the international market of wheat and rice is pretty good, the country can export 3-5 million tonnes of rice and 3-5 million tonnes of wheat without any subsidy. But an early decision making in this regard is the need of the hour.

19

The government has imposed compulsory levy in case of rice to the millers/dealers to serve its procurement purpose. This levy varies from 50% to 75% across the states which can be shown from the table below: State Quantum of Levy (%) 75 50 75 75 60 % share in all India procurement 14 16 7 39 8

20554 20354 19954 19954 20154

By banning the export of rice the government has closed the economy and unduly suppressed the domestic prices of rice. The difference between the parity price and levy price shows the loss in income to the domestic producers. In percentage terms this is the amount of implicit
20

taxation to the extent of 16-25%. If the market for rice is opened the exporters would get a higher price and this would in turn benefit the paddy farmer also.

The State/Central Governments need to take these issues on board. The Committee further feels that the MSP, which should be announced in
advance of the season, also needs to be flexible, being able to take into consideration subsequent and unforeseen changes in the cost of inputs like fertilizers, diesel, labour charges etc.,

In any case,if the declared MSP is to be useful to the farmers, it

needs to be strictly enforced. Both FCI and Civil Supplies department should accept responsibility to enforce MSP not leaving farmers to the mercy of middlemen.

The Committee, however, recognizes the fact that the fixation of a higher MSP alone may not help in the long run as the farmers produce has to be competitive in the markets within the Country and abroad in the globalised regime. level of inputs.
At the same time, market access of agricultural products needs to be freed from the restrictions of artificial barriers.

The real solution lies in reducing the cost of

cultivation through systematic mechanization and using only the required

21

The present cost of production per quintal is less by Rs.190/- in case of common variety and Rs.245/- in case of grade A variety when

compared to the MSPs announced by G.O.I. As is evident from the above, the MSPs presently offered does not cover the cost of production of A.P.farmers. This is because MSP is worked out at National level on a weighted average system, taking into consideration the cost of production of various States. In some States, where labour cost is less or appropriate machinery are available, MSP would be higher than the cost of production. While this is so, the Committee feels that there is a dire necessity to address the plea of A.P. farmers that the MSP needs to be in excess of the cost of production in order to sustain their interest in paddy cultivation. This is necessary as action on other issues such as reducing the cost of cultivation and opening up of markets, though taken note of by the Committee and supported by the measures recommended by it, may take some time. The Committee recommends that this grievance be redressed by an appropriate gesture overcome the gap between the cost of

production and the MSP, as a measure of response to the acute distress of the farming community at the present juncture and in order to address the crisis of confidence.

Such a step will provide some succour to the farmers, who have invested in the paddy crop and will, hopefully, encourage farmers to plant the crop in the future.

22

5) Scale of Finance:

Financial institutions need to increase in the scale of finance of Paddy from existing Rs. 17,500/-keeping in view the increased cost of cultivation.

6) Procurement: As soon as the harvesting is completed, Government should take proactive action to open procurement centers, providing alternate market channels. The Committee cites that a good beginning has already been made in this year in procurement by the Government. This effect should be sustained and stepped up in the coming years to build confidence among the farmers.

The Civil Supplies Corporation needs to expand the range of actors to beyond Self Help Groups. It should pro-actively intervene whenever the MSP is not being realized by the farmers. State Agencies such as A.P MARKFED can perhaps also be involved.

Rythu Mithra Groups/Farmer Groups should be

trained adequately to take up procurement.

The capacity for storing Paddy can also be enhanced through investments in the Public/Private Partnership mode. The total storage available in the area is only 17,500 MTs., while facilities are needed for at
23

least 50% of the production.

State Government should ensure that

godowns are created at AMCs so that poor farmers can store their produce and avail bank loan pledging their stored produce. This can largely prevent distress sales. Recently, GoAP announced construction of new godowns to the capacity of 25 lakh MTs. This shall be completed on priority.

7) Implementation of NREGS: NREGS is a laudable scheme. Its impact on the cost of cultivation, has, however, to be factored into the approach to promoting agricultural production through proper adjustments. Upon consultation with the Department of Rural Development clarified that NREGS is; Only demand driven i.e. when labour demand, work should be offered. Experience has shown that the time when agricultural operations are at peak, the reporting of the demand for labour is low. We trust that the Panchayats will keep in mind the importance of works such as desilting of drains and the formation of link roads, while prioritizing the works.
24

The Committee feels confident that harmonizing the demand for agricultural labour during the peak agricultural season with the demand for employment and the selection of activities, will receive due attention. As per the data out of 100 days of entitlement, the agriculture labour of Konaseema have availed average days of 32. We hope district administration will provide work under NREGS in view of employment shortage arising out of crop holiday. (Annexure 7a, 7b, 7c).

III) To suggest suitable modifications to the cropping schedule in Konaseema region so that the risks of weather and market are minimized.
In accordance with the ANGRAU, the following suitable modifications need to be explored in the affected area of Konaseema. Kharif 1) The cropping schedule of East Godavari for Kharif may be modified and transplantations should be completed by 20th June and under any circumstances harvesting should be completed by first fortnight of October so that Kharif crop escapes from the heavy rains and cyclones usually occur in November and December. This can be done by mechanized planting.

2) Where ever farmers want to go for manual methods, they can go for direct sowing so that cost of cultivation can be reduced by low seed rate and reduced crop duration which enhances the yield. 3) Raw rice and locally consumed varieties can be recommended. 4) Swarna sub-1 and MTU 1064 can be encouraged in the areas where submergence conditions reoccur.

Rabi 1) Rabi sowings should be taken up in November and harvest by March and the crop can escape from summer showers damage. 2) To reduce the cost of cultivation direct sowing can also be recommended. 3) In some elevated areas maize can be tried as it is more remunerative with less cost of cultivation.

Summer Pulses like Green gram and Black gram can be grown. Green manure crops like Dhiancha, Pilli Pesara, Sunhemp can be grown where ever pulses are not sown to enrich the soil fertility. The land should not be kept vacant during summer. Apart from above recommendations, the package of practices given by ANGRAU can be adopted to get higher yields.
26

Oil Palm can also be tried in certain mandals. Encouraging horticultural crops like Cocoa, betelvine and pepper as inter crops and multiple crops in elevated areas will enhance the incomes of farmers. Similarly, aquaculture can be encouraged in suitable areas.

IV) To suggest methods of increasing water use efficiency in Godavari Delta. This is to be achieved both irrigation and drainage canal system.
Regular and efficient maintenance and improvement of the irrigation and drainage system is most essential for enhancing water use efficiency. Crop diversification will also be essential for improving the water use efficiency.

V) To suggest methods of improving the profitability of paddy crop, reducing the cost of cultivation:
Slightly modified SRI can be adopted to improve the profitability of paddy crop. Mechanisation can be popularized Agro-machinery service centers with the following machinery may be established, to enable the farmers adopt mechanization on a custom hiring basis.

To reduce the post harvest losses, farmers may be provided with large scale driers on a custom hiring basis managed by Agril. Market Committee or through Private Entrepreneurs on PPP mode. To strengthen the extension system to make aware the farmers about the importance of soil testing, optimum usage of fertilizers, pesticides to reduce the cost of cultivation.

Other recommendations:
i. The Committee has witnessed the distress of the farmers of Konaseema which is regarded as Rice Bowl of Andhra Pradesh accumulated on the prevailing low prices of Coconut/Copras. The Coconut in Konaseema region is affected by Eriophyid mite attack, which drastically affects quality. It appears that the Scientists could not arrive at any solution for controlling of this pest which has taken the toll of the economy of the
28

region, with 43,202 ha. of coconut plantations in Amalapuram division, no major industries come for manufacture of Coir. Unless value is added to the Coconut or Coir, the plight of the farmers will continue. The Prof. Jayati Ghosh Commission also emphasized the need for more value added activities, and recommended that emphasis on rural economic diversification to more value-added activities under nonagricultural activities. The Committee recommends the opening of a Regional Office of Coir Board, which has been a demand by the farmers since a long time. ii. The farmers of Konaseema are also facing acute inadequacy of labour for Coconut harvesting. The Committee recommends that Coconut climbers be deployed on a priority basis and machinery be provided to the farmers. iii. More allocations need to be made for replacing old Coconut gardens in this region utilizing the scheme available from the Coconut Board. iv. The Government of Andhra Pradesh has been taking up number of measures for the welfare of farmers such as Paavala Vaddi (3% effective net interest at farmers level), interest waiver scheme etc., Administrative delays in the grounding of these Schemes need, however, to be addressed. The Committee was told that the funds are usually not released on time.

29

The Committee therefore recommends that funds relating to farmers programmes be released immediately. v. The Committee also recommends that whenever there is a crop failure, insurance claims should be settled without loss of time. Claims in this region pertaining to the year 2010 are yet to be settled to the farmers. vi. It is advisable to introduce MNAIS in East Godavari district to cover post harvest losses. vii. The Government of India has been implementing a number of programmes for the welfare of the farmers such as RKVY, NFSM Rice and NFSM Pulses etc. The desirability of extending the NFSM Rice scheme to this region needs to be examined, so that subsidized paddy seed and machines/implements can be supplied. viii. One of the most important problems is that of spurious pesticides and fertilizers. The Government needs to be ruthless in addressing this malaise. There are enough statutorily enabling provisions which need only to be enforced strictly. ix. To generate robust response to the demands of the unique nature of this region, a multi-disciplinary Research Station needs be set up in this region to study problems related to Paddy and other farming situations. The existing research station at Ambajipeta should also do research on Eriophyid Mite, advocate proper control measures and also encourage multi-storied cropping systems in Coconut plantations.
30

x.

Infrastructure facilities in the region are very inadequate, one more reason why the farmer is unable to dispose the crop remuneratively. Rs.14.94 Crores is reportedly collected as Market Cess in the region. The Committee recommends that this amount be used for the development of rural roads (donka roads) threshing yards.

xi.

In order to obviate the profitability of the farmers being exploited in times of distress, the committee recommends payment of MSP to the farmers through cheques and putting in place of an effective mechanism to monitor such payments.

xii.

Integrated farming systems are very important, for providing farm incomes so that the farmer need not depend on one crop alone. There is, thus, need to encourage dairying in this area. Forward and backward linkages for dairy however are not adequate. The Committee, hence,

recommends that Government encourage the Animal Husbandry and Dairying sector in this area. An amount of Rs. 5 crores may kindly be allocated for this purpose. xiii. The discomfort in the relationship between the owner farmers and the tenant farmers is a concern. Government needs to clear the air about the Loan Eligibility Cards (LEC) and ensure that the tenant farmers access adequate credit, without the owners entertaining needless

apprehensions.

31

xiv.

The applications filed by the Konaseema farmers for fishing should be dealt with on a priority basis as fishing is the only alternative to paddy in this area.

xv.

It may also be examined whether fisheries can be considered as a part of Agriculture and no Non Agricultural Land Assessment becomes collectable. The alternative to paddy is only aquaculture for Konaseema area. This provision will be of great help to farmers.
It is observed that GoAP is implementing programs for the benefit of farmers like Pavala Vaddi, Interest waiver on bank loans, input subsidy for losses in natural calamities and also popularizing Insurance schemes among the farmers. The Committee noted that an amount of 1648.01 crores was given as input subsidy during last year. Bank interest is also subsidized over and above the Government of India interest subvention scheme. The farmer in AP has to pay only 3% interest. Similarly, Government of India is giving subsidy on fertilizers and other inputs like Seeds and Machinery under RKVY.

Addressing the concerns recorded by this Committee and favourable consideration of its recommendations, it is hoped that it helps in consolidation and strengthen the measures already under the way.

32

Committee has made an attempt to summarize the recommendations as Immediate, medium and long term measures;

Immediate Measures 1. Administrative: Civil Supplies Department to buy the balance of Paddy stocks available with farmers. The Creation of an Assistant Director (HORT.) post in the Department of Horticulture. The creation of an Assistant Director (Fisheries) post. While works are taken up under NREGS on a demand basis preferring the selection of de-silting of drains and forming farm link roads. Implementation of the modified NAIS and weather based crop insurance scheme in East Godavari district. Supplying suitable farm machinery like coconut climbers on war footing. Necessary extra budget provisions may be made by the Government Providing milch animals under Pasu Kranthi Scheme to eligible farmers. Providing subsidized paddy seed by covering the district under the NFSM. Taking up all pending link / donka roads from the Market Cess. Encouraging coconut based village industries. Encourage farmers to take up early Rabi Paddy. Reducing the cost of cultivation through advocating optimum use of fertilizers, need based plant protection measures and mechanization. 2. Financial: Nil 3. Legal : Nil

33

4. Operational: The closure of canals by 1st April & opening by 15th May. De-silting of drains wherever there is no free flow of water. Placement of Dhaincha and other green manure seeds on 50% subsidy to enrich soil fertility. The arranging of at least 100 rakes per month by the Railways in the coming two months to facilitate evacuating of the godowns, so that at least Kharif and Rabi paddy in this season can be purchased properly. Creating CAP storage facilities/silo facilities. To remove all the encroachments in revenue drains and fishing nets across drains, ensuring free flow of water.

Medium term solutions 1. Administrative: Modernization of the drainage system. The opening of a regional office of the Coir Board in Konaseema region. Encouraging Coconut based industries. MSP should have built in flexibility and should be announced much in advance of the cropping season. Announcement of export policy much in advance and initiating transparent and explicit export duty regime if necessary. Reconciliation of areas of cultivation among revenue, agriculture, irrigation and statistics departments to project actual expected area and yields at the mandal, district and State levels.

34

Training farmers to take up marketing/procurement, besides providing them required facilities. To take up construction of godowns in all mandal headquarters where godowns are not available. Available godown in Amalapuram division is for 17,500 MTs. Capacity, while total paddy expected from this revenue division is 3.32 lakh MTs. At least godown capacity shall be created for 50% of production. This is utmost necessary in a place like Amalapuram where cyclones, floods are common. Recently, GoAP announced a programme of constructing godowns for 25 lakh MTs. capacity. Special provision may be given to Konaseema region under this scheme.

2. Financial: Nil 3. Legal: Nil 4. Operational: Nil

Long Term Measures 1. Administrative: To declare existing market yards into regulated market yards. To create 3000 agro service centers in the next 3 4 years. 2. Financial: Nil 3. Legal: Nil 4. Operational: To diversify Paddy area to better remunerative crops like oil palm, maize etc. If there is crop diversification in other paddy growing districts of the State like West Godavari, Krishna for oil palm, there
35

will be more demand for paddy in East Godavari. Out of 4.20 lakh ha. identified suitable for oil palm cultivation only 1.11 lakh ha. has so far been covered. Other potential areas need to be explored and covered. At least another 2.5 lakh ha. can perhaps be brought under oil palm cultivation.

The Committee observes that, while some urgent and important concerns have now manifested themselves in relation to the paddy crop in Konaseema area, the issues in question are fundamental in nature and indicative of the direction in which the countrys agricultural system is headed.

What is visible now is only the tip of the ice-berg. Grave consequences can follow if the big picture is missed. Demand-driven research, a contemporary and effective extension system, improved early warning and forecasting systems, expanded and creative use of ICT in information dissemination, timely and adequate availability of, and accessibility to, credit and risk management products, and inputs such as seeds, fertilizers, pesticides and machinery, organising a robust response to the imperatives of climate-change, improved post harvest facilities including storage processing and marketing, are only some among the range of issues needing urgent and purposeful attention. To this end the Committee strongly recommends the establishment of a holistic, dedicated, trans-disciplinary mechanism at the National, State
36

and District levels, to undertake a 24x7 environmental scan to spot the threats and opportunities, and disseminate value-added information to appropriate destinations, in order empower the farming community on a real-time and on-line basis.

The ATMA at the District level, SAMETI at the State-level and an appropriate mechanism at the National level can be thought of in this context.

What were called the Kharif and Rabi plans became Campaigns and need now to transit to a Mission mode. The availability of technology, supply of inputs, provision of market intelligence and increasing the staying capacity of the farmers all need to be handled as a composite function not a sequence of disjointed tasks by a team that functions with chemistry within and amongst its members rather than mere physics as at present.

From ICAR and DOAC/DAHD through ISRO, IMD, RBI, and the Ministries of Finance & Commerce, all agencies at the National level need to consolidate their efforts in an inclusive, complementary and mutually reinforcing manner in these missions. Plans of action should be formulated with specific deliverables and milestones, and tested (much in the way Disaster Management Plans are) through drills and rehearsals so that there is a pro-active ability to respond to unforeseen situations.
37

In the absence of such an effort at all levels, the stop-go, and kneejerk reactions, on the part of the individual Departments/Agencies,, will continue and prove woefully inadequate the daunting task ahead of them.
