TA.

(i)   Functions and Duties:
             This branch handles Agriculture Extension Project presently financed
by the Central and the State Governments. The Project aims at increasing crop
yields by narrowing the gap between what farmers can achieve and their existing
crop yield levels.   The task is achieved by constituting an effective agricultural
extension service with in-built mechanism of removing critical constraints for tapping
yield resources.


      The Training & Visit Approach
             The Agricultural Extension System in Haryana has been reorganized
and strengthened so as to provide an efficient and time bound management system
of delivery of technical messages to the farmers every fortnight on fixed days. The
regular field oriented training is imparted to the village level extension staff every
fortnight by the team of SMSs provided at Sub-divisional level. The trainings of
SMSs are also organised periodically.
             The whole system of Extension is based on popular approach known
as "Training and Visit System" of Extension. The extension workers work under the
single line command of the department of agriculture under an intensive time bound
management system.       The approach requires working through contact farmers
selected from all socio-economic groups and aim at reaching large number of
                                      9
farming families quickly with well identified technical messages covering the entire
growth period of crops.           The latest research findings are communicated to a
particular group/ village through the repeated fortnightly fixed visits. The extension
worker‟s mind is not burdened with all the sundry details and is rather focused on
few impact practices, which he is supposed to communicate to farmers in a
fortnight.

     2.      Verification of subsidy claim bills of „P‟ & „K‟ fertilizers. The verification of
             „P‟ & „K‟ fertilizers except SSP is done on line through web based
             Fertilizer    Monitoring    System     (FMS)        which        is   accessible   at
             www.urvarak.co.in
     3.      Quality Control work relating to fertilizers and pesticides.

Fertilizers:

          Commonly used chemical fertilizers in the State are Urea, DAP, CAN, MOP,
SSP, Complex (NPK 12:32:16 & 20:20:0).
Governing Acts:

                To regulate the sale, the price and the quality of fertilizers, the
following central enactments are applicable:

                1.        Essential  Commodities         Act,         1955,        accessible   at
                          www.agricoop.nic.in
                                              20
              2.     Fertilizer    (Control)  Order,       1985,    accessible       at
                     www.agricoop.nic.in/sublegi/FertilizerControlOrder.htm
              3.     Fertilizer (Movement Control) Order, 1973.
Arrangement of Fertilizers:

              Fertilizers have been categorized in two groups:-

              1.    Controlled Fertilizers – Urea
              2.    Decontrolled Fertilizers – DAP, MOP, SSP, AS, AC &
                    Complexes.
Controlled Fertilizers:

              Now a day, only urea fertilizer is covered under this category. This is
the major nitrogenous fertilizer, which is applied by the farmers to the crops. Before
the commencement of each season, requirement of urea is assessed keeping in
view all the relevant factors. The requirement, so determined, is put forward to
Govt. of India for making the allotment of Urea fertilizer for the ensuing crop season.
After approval of assessed demand, the allocation for supplying the urea to the
State is made in favour of various manufacturers/ suppliers/ importers by the Govt.
of India.
Decontrolled Fertilizers:
              The Govt. of India had withdrawn the control over movement of many
nitrogenous, phosphatic and potassic fertilizers such as DAP, CAN, SSP, MOP, AS,
AC and Complexes w.e.f. 24.8.1992.
              The demand for each crop season is determined keeping in view all
the relative factors viz. likely area under various crops during the coming season,
consumption during the last corresponding crop season, availability prospects etc.
The State Government has identified HAFED as the State Nodal Agency for
effective import of DAP and MOP fertilizers through central agencies like M/s Indian
Potash Limited and M/s Material and Minerals Trading Corporation Ltd.
Subsidy:
              The Govt. of India is providing subsidy on phosphatic and potassic
fertilizers sold by the manufacturers/ suppliers/ importers.
Regulatory functions:
            The Certificate of Registration for manufacture of NPK mixture/ Micro
Nutrient mixtures unit in the state are granted/ renewed by the Director of
Agriculture. Authorization Certificate is deemed to have been granted/ renewed
automatically by the concerned Dy. Directors of Agriculture on receipt of documents
from the dealers and in case of any dispute, appeals can be preferred to the

                                           21
Appellate Authority i.e. Director of Agriculture.
              To ensure the availability of quality fertilizers and uniform distribution,
the Fertilizer Inspectors are appointed / notified by the State Govt. from amongst the
officers of the Department. They are empowered to draw the samples, search and
seize the material, checking the records etc. of the fertilizer dealers.
              The district-wise and month-wise targets of sampling are fixed for each
season. The Fertilizer Inspectors draw the samples from the manufacturing units,
storage and selling points, as per the procedure specified in the Fertilizer (Control)
Order, 1985. The samples so collected are sent to the State Fertilizer Quality
Control Laboratories for analysis.
Fertilizer Quality Control Laboratories:
             There are three Fertilizer Quality Control Laboratories in the State
located at Karnal, Hisar and Rohtak each having analyzing capacity of 1700
samples per year. The samples are tested in these labs and results thereof are sent
to the concerned Dy. Directors of Agriculture for further action.
Pesticides
Governing Acts:
              To regulate the import, manufacture, sale, transport, distribution and
use of insecticides, the following central enactments are applicable:
   1.     Insecticides Act, 1968, accessible at www.cib&rc.nic.in
   2.     Insecticides Rules, 1971, accessible at www.cib&rc.nic.in
Insecticides Inspectors:

              As per provision of the Insecticides Act 1968, Insecticides Inspectors
are appointed by the State Govt. through notification from amongst the officers of
the Department. These inspectors are empowered with the powers of drawing
samples, search and seizure of the material, inspection of records etc.
              The district wise and month wise targets of the samples are fixed from
the State Headquarters. The Inspectors draw the samples from the manufacturing,
storage and selling points of institutional agencies & private traders, as per the
procedure laid down under the Act. The samples drawn by the inspectors are sent
to the State Insecticide Laboratories for chemical analysis.


Insecticide Quality Control Laboratories:

              There are three State Pesticides Testing Laboratories located at
Karnal, Sirsa and Rohtak each having an analyzing capacity of 1100 samples per

                                           22

                                              24
PROCEEDINGS OF THE MEETING OF STATE FERTILZER COMMITTEE HELD
ON 5.2.2008 AT 12.00 NOON AT CHANDIGARH UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP
OF SHRI RAJ KUMAR, IAS, FINANCIAL COMMISSIONER & PRINCIPAL
SECRETARY TO GOVERNMENT HARYANA, AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT


              List of participants is attached.
              At the outset, the Chairman welcomed participants and asked Director
Agriculture to take up the issues agenda-wise, which were discussed as under :-
1.           Confirmation of the proceedings of the last meeting held on
             10.10.2002:

              The last meeting of the Committee was held on 10.10.2002 and the
proceedings of the meeting were circulated to all concerned vide letter No.10131-
33/TA(F) dated 14.11.2002. Since no comments were received from any of the
members, the proceedings of the last meeting were confirmed.
2.           De-notification of physical mixtures of grades of 15:15:15, 15:20:20,
             10:10:0, 20:10:10 and 16:9:0

              Director Agriculture explained that the State Government had notified
seven grades of NPK mixtures vide notification dated 30.12.1983. Government of
India advised State Governments to denotify the grade of physical mixtures which
were identical or similar to the grades of complex fertilizers and which had nutrient
contents less than 35 units in case of NPK and 25 units in case of NP/ NK/ PK
mixtures. Accordingly, the Committee in its last meeting held on 10.10.2002 had
decided to denotify such grades and to keep only two grades viz NPK 12:32:0 and
15:15:7.5.
              As per decision, the matter was referred to State Government for
issuing notification in this regard, but Govt. of India deferred the above guidelines
from time to time and asked for the reaction of the State Government vide letter
dated 11.9.2006. The reaction of the State Government was sent to Govt. of      India
vide letter dated 2.11.2006 suggesting that the State is agreeable to keep only two
grades of NPK mixtures of 12:32:0 and 15:15:7.5, but nothing could be heard from
Govt. of India. Since the grades namely 15:15:15 and 20:10:10 are identical to the
grades of physical mixtures of complex fertilizers and 10:10:0 having units less than
25 and the grades of 15:20:20 and 16:9:0 are not being manufactured and therefore
may be deleted from the notified grades. It was unanimously decided to delete these
grades and to notify only two grades viz 12:32:0 and 15:15:7.5.
3.           To consider the sale of mixtures of micronutrients with or without NPK.
                                           25
               Director Agriculture explained that a representation has been received
from the Indian Micro Fertilizers Manufacturers‟ Association, Pune suggesting that
the sale of mixtures of micro nutrient fertilizers should be allowed in the State and
suggested the representative of the Association to express their view point.
               Dr. S.S. Ranade explained that the soils have started showing
symptoms of deficiency of more than one micronutrient and therefore State should
consider notifying mixtures of micronutrient fertilizers to boost the crop production in
Haryana State. He further said that even if the farmers do not come forward to use
mixtures of micronutrient fertilizers, atleast they should not be deprived of the
availability of these micronutrients.
               Dr. Mohinder Singh and Dr. Ram Kala, Senior Soil Chemists, CCS
HAU, Hisar informed that 12.7% soils of Haryana are deficient in Zinc + Ferrous,
3.1% in Zinc + Menganese, 4.8% in Ferrous + Menganese and 2.7% in
Zinc+Ferrous+Menganese. In case physical mixtures of micronutrient fertilizers are
made available to the farmers, farmers would be required to pay additional cost for
the micronutrient which may not be required in their soils. They also said that all the
micronutrient mixtures are not compatible and the mixtures of Boron and Copper in
some areas of the State might cause injury to plants. In certain cases the mode of
application is also different. The representative of the Association said that the
products backed by technological perfection will not create any injury to the plants.
               After detailed discussions, it was decided that :-
   (i)    A Sub-committee consisting of Dr. V.S. Raperia, ADA(Soil Conservation),
          Dr. Mohinder Singh and Dr. Ram Kala, Senior Soil Chemists, CCS HAU,
          Hisar, Dr. S.S. Ranade and Mr. M.E. Hedge, representatives of IMMA
          may be constituted, which will study the products and their cost benefit
          ratio on different crops and will submit the report with crop specific
          recommendations preferably within 30 days but not later than April, 2008.
          The members of the Committee may meet at mutually agreed convenient
          place for finalizing the report.
   (ii)   It was also decided that the Association will lay out demonstrations on
          principal field and horticultural crops of the State in collaboration with the
          Scientists of CCS HAU, Hisar and field functionaries of Department of
          Agriculture and Department of Horticulture. The demonstrations will be
          laid out on farmers‟ field. The complete data of the demonstrations will be
          maintained and the results analyzed for productivity and cost benefit ratio.
                                        26
                 The report of the Sub Committee will be presented to the State Fertilizer
                 Committee for consideration. The nutrient data with respect to Haryana
                 State available with the IMMA should be made available to the
                 Department of Agriculture and CCS HAU, Hisar.
      (iii)      Chairman advised the Scientists of CCS HAU, Hisar to visit Maharashtra
                 State and study the use and impact of mixtures of micronutrient fertilizers.
4.                  Any Other Item with the permission of the Chair :


(i)                  The issue of subsidizing the cost of single micronutrients under the
State Plan scheme was discussed. It was informed that about 9000 MT Zinc
Sulphate is consumed in the State annually. The Scientists of CCS HAU, Hisar said
that the deficiency is more in the South-West tract of the State and all the farmers
are not applying Zinc Sulphate to overcome the deficiency. Chairman desired that
effort of the Department should be to cover the entire deficient area and provide
Zinc Sulphate on subsidy for larger area and in case need be the reduction in
subsidy from 50% to 25% may be considered. Director Agriculture suggested that
the subsidy available under National Food Security Mission may be clubbed to
cover larger areas and after studying the issue comprehensively, a recommendation
regarding the level of subsidy would be made.
                     The meeting ended with a vote of thanks to the Chair.

              The State Government does not provide any subsidy on fertilizers. The
subsidy on fertilizer is provided by Govt. of India directly to the manufactures or
importers under retention price for urea and special concession scheme for
phosphatic and potassic fertilizers. All phosphatic and potassic fertilizer have been
decontrolled by Govt. of India since 1992 but a scheme called Special Concession
Scheme is being implemented for providing subsidy on their fertilizers since then.
The level of concession (subsidy) is announced by Govt. of India for all phosphatic
and potassic fertilizers from time to time.

Note:- The information pertaining to the remaining points is given at the end of the
       manual as it is common to all the branches of the department.

        Guidelines for implementation of Mini Mission-II (MM-II) of Technology
                Mission on Cotton (TMC) during 2005-06 and 2006-07


Background
      The Centrally Sponsored Scheme of “Technology Mission on cotton”
was launched in February, 2000 with the objective to increase cotton
production, productivity and improvement in cotton quality. Since then, the TMC
is being implemented through its four Mini Missions (MM) for achieving the
above objectives. Mini Mission-I deals with the research and development of
cotton production technologies and Indian Council of Agricultural Research
(ICAR) is the nodal agency for its implementation. Mini Mission-II deals with
extension & development activities for increasing production and productivity,
                                        34
which is being implemented by the Department of Agriculture & Cooperation.
Mini Mission-IV is looking after the modernization of ginning and pressing
factories. The Mini Mission-III & IV are implemented by the Ministry of Textiles.


MINI MISSION-II OF TECHNOLOGY MISSION ON COTTON
Aim and Objectives
                The MM-II is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme which aims to increase
production and productivity of cotton to meet domestic and export demands of the
country. This will also help in the reduction of the cost of cultivation and pesticide
consumption for enhancing competitiveness in the international market.


Area of Operation
      The scheme will be implemented in 13 States viz. Punjab, Haryana,
Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka,
Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Orissa, West Bengal and Tripura.              Other non-
traditional States may also be covered, provided they have the potential for cotton
production.


      The scheme will be implemented in project mode with the convergence of
scheme components so that the impact of the scheme is clearly seen. Each project
area may have a compact area selected by the States based upon low productivity,
biotic/abiotic problems etc. where all components of MM-II by all nodal agencies
may be implemented. State will co-ordinate with all the nodal agencies involved in
implementation of the scheme in their State.
      During 10th Plan, besides States, ICAR, Kristi Vigyan Kendryas‟(KVKs),
State Agriculture Universities (SAUs), various other organizations have also been
included like   Cotton Corporation of India (CCI), Cooperatives, NGOs, Private
Sector etc. for the implementation of scheme and these agencies should implement
the programme with technical guidance of ICAR, SAUs, KVKs, Subject Matter
Specialist of State Agriculture Department etc., if required. The State Department of
Agriculture need to monitor and inspect the activities undertaken by other
implementing agencies.


Implementing Agencies.
      The scheme will be implemented by Department of Agriculture & Cooperation
through State Governments. Some components of the scheme like FLD, production
                                   35
of seeds, maintenance of nucleus & breeder seeds, IRM, setting up of bio-agent
production units, training etc. will be implemented by Department of Agriculture &
Cooperation directly through ICAR, State Agriculture Universities (SAU), Cotton
Corporation of India (CCI), Kristi Vigyan Kendryas (KVK), Cooperatives, Industries,
Farmers Associations, NGOs etc.            State Governments may also involve these
agencies in the implementation of the scheme.


Funding pattern
            Component-wise funding pattern has been given in the Annexure-I. Most of
the
components implemented by the States are to be funded on 75:25 basis by the
Government of India and States.            However, some of the components to be
implemented directly through ICAR, CCI etc. will be funded on 100% basis by the
Government of India.


Components and pattern of assistance.
            The various components of the scheme and pattern of assistance are given
in Annexure-I. The guidelines for implementation of the components of the scheme
will be as below:-


      1.      Seed
      1.1     Supply of Breeder Seed

            In order to improve the chain of seed production, incentives will be provided
to the State Seeds Corporations, SFCI, NSC, Registered Seed Growers‟
Associations through the State Departments of Agriculture and NSC, SFCI and
other central organizations by Department of Agriculture & Cooperation for the
purchase of breeder seeds on reimbursement basis for production of foundation
seed. Subsidy will be shared by Centre and States on 75:25 basis as indicated in
Annexure-I. In case of central organizations, total subsidy will be provided by
Government of India. However, the subsidy will be given for varieties/parental lines
of hybrids which are not older than 15 years. The State Governments will reimburse
the full cost of the breeder seed purchased by the above institutions as per the
indent placed by them. Notified private bred varieties and parents of hybrids of
above mentioned age limit will also be eligible for this incentive.



                                              36
1.2   Production of foundation seed
        Incentives will be given to seed producing agencies like SFCI, NSC
directly by Department of Agriculture & Cooperation and to State Seed
Corporations,    Seed     Growers     Associations/Cooperatives      through    State
department of agriculture @ 50% of cost limited to Rs.50/- per kg for the
production of foundation seed from breeder seed of eligible varieties/hybrids, as
indented by a particular State. For this purpose 100% funds will be provided by
Government of India. The entire quantity of foundation seed produced and
supplied for further multiplication will qualify for availing incentives. For availing
the assistance, the seed producing agencies will submit their proposal along
with the certificate for the year in question from seed certification agency to the
State Department of Agriculture for reimbursement of the assistance. Central
Seed producing agencies will submit their proposal along with the certificate
from seed certification agencies to Directorate of Cotton Development, Mumbai
for reimbursement of the assistance.
1.3   Production of Certified seed
       For production of indented quantity of certified seeds of eligible
varieties/hybrids also, incentives will be given to seed producing agencies on
the similar line as in case of production of foundation seed. It will be 100%
funded by the Government of India. Only the quantity of certified seed supplied
to the farmers will be eligible for this assistance.     For availing the assistance,
the seed producing agencies will submit their proposal along with the certificate
for the year in question from seed certification agency to the State Department
of Agriculture for reimbursement of assistance.           Central organizations will
submit their proposal to Department of Agriculture & Cooperation through
Directorate of Cotton Development, Mumbai.
1.4   Distribution of Certified Seed
       In    order     to     popularize   the     use     of    seeds     of    new
varieties/hybrids,assistance&Rs.2000/- per quintal will be provided for the
distribution of certified seeds of varieties/hybrids which have been notified
during the last 15 years. The State Department of Agriculture may distribute the
certified seed directly or through other agencies like State Seed Corporations,
Central Seed Producing Agencies, Cooperative Societies/Federations etc. for
claiming the subsidy under the scheme. Besides, the State may also distribute
the certified parental lines for production of hybrid seeds by the farers, who are
already trained to produce hybrid seeds by themselves.                    The State
Governments may procure seeds from any source including private sector. In
                                 37
 case of non-availability of eligible varieties for a particular area, State
 Governments         may submit a proposal to Department of Agriculture &
 Cooperation with full justification for relaxation of the age limit.
      The State Governments should plan their seed production programme to
 ensure that seed multiplication chain is maintained and quality seed is available
 to farmers at reasonable prices. Efforts also be made for the popularization of
 area-specific varieties.


1.5     Maintenance of Nucleus and Breeder Seeds
         In case of cotton, it has been experienced that due to lack of maintenance
 of both nucleus and breeder seed, the genetic purity of some varieties has
 deteriorated over the years.        This not only resulted in loss of productivity
 potential of the original variety/hybrid, but also in deterioration of the lint quality
 as well. Therefore, ICAR and SAUs will be assisted for maintenance of Nucleus
 and Breeder seeds of varieties/parental lines of hybrids irrespective of age limit.
 The assistance will be provided @ Rs.6.00 lakh per centre per annum as block
 grant basis. This component will be 100% funded by Government of India.
 Central Institute for Cotton Research (CICR), Nagpur will be the nodal agency
 for the implementation, coordination and monitoring of this component. The
 existing staff at different centres involved in breeder seed production will be
 utilized for the programme. No separate staff and incentives will be provided.
 Only SRF or skilled helper may be engaged for a fixed period. The CICR,
 Nagpur will issue technical instructions/detailed guidelines to the implementing
 agencies with a copy to Agriculture Commissioner and Directorate of Cotton
 Development, Mumbai.          The various ICAR/SAU centres identified for the
 programme are given below. However, these centres may be increased or
 decreased as per the requirement.

  1.6    Setting up of Seed Delinting Plants.
          The establishment of seed Delinting plant by seed producing agencies of
  States, National/State Seed Corporations, Cooperatives, registered Seed
  Growers Societies and private sector etc. is considered essential for the
  improvement of quality of planning material. The use of fuzzy seeds i.e. seeds
  with linters affects germination rate and also carries insect pests and diseases,
                                         39
    resulting in reduction of yield. Therefore, assistance will be given for the
    establishment of seed Delinting plants @ 50% of the cost limited to Rs.40 lakh
    for medium size plants (100-150 quintal per day capacity) or smaller unit on pro-
    rata basis. It will help in ensuring delinted seed to the farmers.

            Preference may be given for environmental friendly technology in setting
    up such Delinting plants. The assistance will be shared on 75:25 basis by the
    Government of India and State Governments.           However, in case of private
    sectors assistance will be provided on back-ended subsidy basis.

    2.    Plant Protection
    2.1   Famers‟ Field Schooln(FFS)

            It is a season long programme to impart training to the farmers for one
    day in a week throughout the season in various aspects of production and
    protection technologies. Two facilitators, who have undergone season long
    training of Training of Facilitator (ToF), will run each FFS. 30 cotton growers
    from a particular village will be selected as trainees under FFS.


            About 2 acres land of one of the participants or other farmers land will be
    used as FFS field for raising cotton or this may be done in IPM demonstration
    area.    The training is field oriented discovery based, learning by doing and
    participatory. FFS is a “learning field” where farmers conduct experiments and
    comparison trials. The training curriculum will be based on local needs. FFS will
    be run only in the morning and for about 4-5 hours. The total number of
    sessions will be 20, of which first 16 sessions are weekly and rest 4 sessions
    are fortnightly. Agro-Eco-System Analysis (AESA) is one of the main FFS
    activity through which farmers take crop management decision. At the end of
    FFS farmers will be able to grow healthy crop by conserving natural enemies of

  2.3     Insecticide Resistance Management (IRM) :

                  This component is to be implemented in 26 specified districts
     which may vary in future depending on pest situation. The Insecticide
     Resistance Management (IRM) module developed by the Central Institute for
     Cotton Research (CICR), Nagpur, will be replicated in 20 villages in each district
     with the help of unemployed youths having Agriculture Diploma/B.Sc.
     (Agriculture) / M.Sc. (Agriculture), skilled helpers and field workers. It will be
     implemented by the CICR, Nagpur through SAUs, ICAR and recognized
     agriculture organizations in collaboration with the State Department of
     Agriculture. It is 100% funded by the Government of India. The expenditure
     involved in each district is towards salary for one project officer, one helper and
     twenty five field workers for six months. Each district will be provided funds for
     monitoring, training of field workers, conveyance / travel, stationery and other
     contingencies.
                 Besides, there will be monitoring at National and State levels, for
     which fund will be provided for conveyance/monitoring purposes. Further, funds
     will be provided to CICR, Nagpur and Directorate of Cotton Development,
     Mumbai towards making media materials, workshop, seminars, training of
     project officers, visit of farmers to IRM villages etc. The staff engaged will be
     purely on daily basis for the maximum period of six months.
           Under the MM II, there are large number of sub-components for the
     management of insect pest and diseases in cotton such as surveillance, FFS,
     ToF, supply of sprayers / dusters, pheromone traps, light traps, bio-agents etc.
     All these activities should be coordinated in these villages except FFS & ToF.
     Since IRM is being implemented in these villages, surveillance of insect pest
     and diseases component need not be carried out there. CICR will circulate
     guidelines and modules for each activity with financial ceiling as well as the IRM
     module for the implementation of IRM. The ownership of all durable
     goods/items/equipments will vest in Government of India, but will remain under
     the custody of the implementing agencies.

Area of Operation
      The scheme will be implemented in 13 States viz. Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan,
Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh,
Tamil Nadu, Orissa, West Bengal and Tripura. Other non-traditional States may also be
covered, provided they have the potential for cotton production.


       The scheme will be implemented in project mode with the convergence of
scheme components so that the impact of the scheme is clearly seen. Each project area
may have a compact area selected by the States based upon low productivity,



                                           50
biotic/abiotic problems etc. where all components of MM-II by all nodal agencies may be
implemented.     State will co-ordinate with all the nodal agencies involved in
implementation of the scheme in their State.
      During 10th Plan, besides States, ICAR, Kristi Vigyan Kendryas‟(KVKs), State
Agriculture Universities (SAUs), various other organizations have also been included
like Cotton Corporation of India (CCI), Cooperatives, NGOs, Private Sector etc. for the
implementation of scheme and these agencies should implement the programme with
technical guidance of ICAR, SAUs, KVKs, Subject Matter Specialist of State Agriculture
Department etc., if required. The State Department of Agriculture need to monitor and
inspect the activities undertaken by other implementing agencies.


Implementing Agencies.
      The scheme will be implemented by Department of Agriculture & Cooperation
through State Governments. Some components of the scheme like FLD, production of
seeds, maintenance of nucleus & breeder seeds, IRM, setting up of bio-agent
production units, training etc. will be implemented by Department of Agriculture &
Cooperation directly through ICAR, State Agriculture Universities (SAU), Cotton
Corporation of India (CCI), Kristi Vigyan Kendryas (KVK), Cooperatives, Industries,
Farmers Associations, NGOs etc. State Governments may also involve these agencies
in the implementation of the scheme

Guidelines of Technology Mission on Cotton

2.3 Insecticide Resistance Management (IRM) – 100% Govt. of India
      This component is to be implemented in 26 specified districts which may vary in
future depending on pest situation. The Insecticide Management )IRM) module
developed by the Central Institute for Cotton Research (CICR), Nagpur, will be
replicated in 20 villages in each district with the help of unemployed youths having
Agriculture Diploma / B.Sc. (Agriculture) / M.Sc. (Agriculture) skilled helpers and field
workers. It will be implemented by the CICR, Nagpur through SAU‟s, ICAR and
recognized agriculture organization in collaboration with the State Department of
Agriculture. It is 100% funded by the Government of India. The expenditure involved in



                                           51
each district is towards salary for one project officer, one helper and twenty five field
worker for six months. Each district will be provided funds for monitoring training of field
workers, conveyance / travel, stationery and other contingencies.
       Besides, there sill be monitoring at Nation and State levels, for which fund will be
provided for conveyance / monitoring purposes. Further, funds will be provided to CICR,
Nagpur and Directorate of Cotton Development, Mumbai, towards making media
materials, workshop, seminars, training of project officers, visit of farmers to IRM
villages etc. The staff engaged will be purely on daily baiss for the maximum period of
six months.
       Under the MM II, there are large number of sub-components for the management
of insect pest and diseases in cotton such as surveillance, FFS, ToF, supply of sprayers
/ dusters, pheromone traps, light traps, bio-agents etc. All these activities should be
coordinated in these villages except FFS & ToF . Since IRM is being implemented in
these villages. Surveillance of insect pest and diseases component need not be carried
out there. CICR, Nagpur will circulate guidelines and modules for each activity with
financial ceiling as well as the IRM module for the implementation of IRM. The
ownership of all durable goods / items / equipments will vest in Government of India, but
will remain under the custody of the implementing agencies.
2.4 Seed Treatment with Pesticides :
       Application of seed treatment with chemicals viz., Stretocyclene, Bavistin,
Thiram, Thiram, Trichoderma or insecticides etc., protect seed emergence and
seedlings from wilt causing organisms. Seed treatment of the sucking pest susceptible
varieties provides protection against the jassid infestation as well as Cotton Leaf Curl
Virus infection and delay first spray. By adopting this simple technique, adequate plant
stand can be ensured to obtain higher productivity by 5 to 10% without much cost.
       Under this component, assistance will be provided to the farmers @ 50% of cost
limited to Rs.40/- per kg. It is added that seed producing agencies involved in
distribution of certified seed should avail this subsidy, so that all the certified seed
distributed to the farmers could be treated with chemicals. The certified seed packets
must be labeled in local language in this regard.
2.5 Establishment of Bio-agent Production Units :



                                            52
      (a) Under MM II the State Governments will be assisted for the establishment of
bio-agent production units for different kinds of bio-agents used primarily in cotton crop
as per assistance indicated in the Annexure – I. The State Governments may renovate
the existing buildings to be used as production unit and avail assistance for installing
equipments as mentioned below for a unit capable of producing bio-agent for an area of
about 10,000 ha. The scheme does not provide for any fund for recurring expenditure
and salary of the staff deployed by the State Governments. Part of this expenditure
could be recouped by the sale of bio-agents and all expenditure for this purpose will be
borne by the State Governments. The State Governments, if desire, may lease out the
facilities to any private organizations of repute after setting up the same having regard
to the performance of such parties. The details of the equipments as recommended by
Directorate of Plant Protection, Quarantine & Storage, Ministry of Agriculture, Faridabad
are given below :

(b)        The agencies like ICAR, SAUs, KVKs, Registered Cooperatives will also be
assisted to set up such bio-agent production units. In case of these organizations,
100% funding will be done by the Govt. of India as per the pattern of assistance


                                             54
indicated in Annexure – I. The proposals in this regard may be submitted through
concerned State Governments.
(c)    Private sector including NGOs are also allowed to set up these units. However,
they will be provided assistance @ 50% of the cost limited to Rs.20 lakh as credit-linked
back-ended subsidy through nationalized banks on equipment and accessories as
indicated above. The State Governments will have power to approve such proposals.
The States will monitor the implementation of this component and the subsidy will be
released to the banks by the State Governments after completion of the production units
as per the pattern of assistance given in Annexure – I.


2.6 Surveillance and Monitoring of disease and pests :
       The detection of pests and diseases for their management at threshold level is of
paramount importance for reducing crop losses. Surveillance and monitoring are the
most important aspects in pest management. Pest scouting should be done at weekly
intervals on a random sample of 20 plants per acre in the early state of the crop. The
weekly surveillance and monitoring report on the situation of insect pests and diseases
will help the district level extension workers in taking proper decision on crop protection
schedules and remedial measures.
2.7 Distribution of pheromone traps / light traps :
       Pheromone / light traps are the key components of cotton IPM and are mostly
utilized for monitoring the pests population so that timely actions are taken. Light trap is
an old and proven technology to attract insect pests, which are nocturnal. But the
efficiency of light trap depend on its design and quality of light source provided therein.
2.8 Supply of bio-agents / bio-pesticides and sprayers :
       Release of bio-control agents, parasitoids during 36-65 days after sowing to
manage whitefly population, release of chrysoperla predator @ 50,000 per ha. at 30-60
days to control nymph and adult population and release of egg of bollworm parasioids.
Trichogramma, Trichoderma and Microbial insecticides such as HaNPV, Bt for the
management of eggs are beneficial to cotton crop. Apart from this, use of bio-pesticides
like neem oil, neem derivatives, sesame oil, repelling and karanj oil have proved
effective against American bollworm. Since, MM II intends to popularize IPM, assistance



                                             55
will be provided to the faremers for the use of bio-agents @ 50% of cost limited to
Rs.900/- per ha. Assistance will also be given for the supply of sprayers of various
types.


3. Water Saving Devices :
         In order to enhance cotton area under irrigation, as well as to improve water use
efficiency, particularly in the water scarce areas, assistance will be provided to farmers
for installation of water saving devices such as sprinkler and drip irrigation systems. The
State Governments may make sure that ISI marked material is supplied to the farmers.
Besides, farmers and extension workers need to be educated about the proper use as
well as maintenance of these equipments. Farmers, who have already been covered
under other scheme of the Govt. of India / State Government should not be provided
assistance to avoid duplication.
4. Human Resource Development:
         Cotton being long duration crop, cotton extension requires a higher level of
knowledge for dissemination of technologies. Cultivation of cotton has become
complicated over the years due to presence of many varieties, pests and insecticides.
         Therefore, under the MM II due attention has been given to I part proper training
to Trainers, Extension workers / dealers / NGOs/Ginners and others, who are directly or
indirectly involved in transfer of technology programme. The training of farmers on
production and plant protection including contamination free cotton and other
technologies are to be imparted under FFS, as indicated at Serial No.2.1 above.
         The   training   of   extension   workers/NGOs/KVKs/Cooperatives,       Growers‟
Associations, ginners etc., is also necessary for the upgradation of their knowledge, skill
and acquisition of newer technologies. Apart from this, training of input dealers is also
essential as these dealers are the first contract persons to provide technical guidance
about the inputs available with them to the farmers. District level state officials,

(iv) All FLds :
         The following guidelines be followed for conducting the above all categories of
FLDs :
         a)      It should be a joint effort among coordinating extension unit of SAU, State
              Department of Agriculture and Directorate of Cotton Development and their
              field agencies. Reputed NGOs who have experience in agriculture extension
              with technical manpower, may also be involved wherever possible.
         b)       The main emphasis of the demonstrations should be to enhance the
              production of cotton in low productivity areas / problematic areas, where total
              improved package be demonstrated. If required, demonstration on specific
              problem may be conducted.
         c)      A list of beneficiaries and their; plot numbers should be compulsorily
              notified in the local Block Development / Panchayat Office. Farmers should
              be selected in consultation with local agriculture officers and Panchayat.
         d)      FLDFs should be conducted under the supervision of scientists / subject
              matter specialist by all implementing agencies and should be dovetailed with
              FFS, wherever possible.
         e)      It is expected that the concerned officers / scientists of ICAR and State
              Government will inspect and monitor various crucial aspects of the FLDs. All
              necessary assistance should be extended to facilitate such inspection and
              gist of inspection reports may be included in Annual Reports.
         f)       Bench Mark Survey has to be conducted before talking up the trial which
              will include information on the crops and cropping system of the area
              including inter cropping. The average yields levels of the cotton and the local
              practices
              adopted in terms of irrigation use of fertilizer, plant protection etc. Information
              on the cost of cultivation may also be collected for the area as a whole. An
              impact analysis after the harvest may be collectedfor the area as a whole An



                                                 60
            impact analysis after the hjarvest may be carried out in the light of reduction in
            pesticide use, reduction in cost of cultivation, awareness in modern technology
            etc. Analysis of the yield levels in the control plots along with the earlier
            production levels should also be carried out.
       g)      Detailed guidelines in this regard will be issued by the concerned nodal
            agencies.
6. Other components
6.1 Contingencies / staff to the implementing States
       Assistance will be provided to the State Governments to meet the contingencies
for the implementation / monitoring / surveillance of the scheme including staff at
headquarters on 75 : 25 cost sharing basis between Government of India and State
Governments. These funds will be utilized for the implementation and monitoring of the
scheme throughout the cotton areas. The expenses related to SALMOT may also be
incurred from the contingency head by the States. The State Governments may send 20
– 25 cotton farmers within State and outside the State including 3 – 4 extension workers
on tour to expose them to improved / modern cotton production technologies. The
States may utilize the funds on the tour of farmer as per the norms of other schemes of
the State / Central Governments. The State contingencies grant will also cover traveling
allowance, POL charges, maintenance / hiring of vehicles, training aids like slide /
overhead projector and other miscellaneous expenditure for the quick movement of field
staff. The field officials having no telephone facilities may use contingency fund for
informing higher officer through telephone / fax etc. if disease / pest situation builds up.
Monitoring is the key for the success of the scheme and hence, the State Governments
must make maximum use of this component.
       The KVKs/NGOs/Cooperatives/Farmers Association/Mills/CCI engaged in MM II
implementation will be provided maximum of 10% of the total allocation as
contingencies grant including the contingencies built in the components like FLDs. The
Directorate of Cotton Development will implement NALMOT visits, which will be100%
funded by Government of India. The contingency is given to the states for effective
implementation and monitoring of the scheme, which is Rs.1.00 lakh per district having
sizeable cotton area.



                                              61
6.2     Electronic Print Media / Information Technology / Mass Media / Workshops,
      foreign visits, strengthening of Directorate of Cotton Development / Crops Division
      and other miscellaneous contingencies.
      This will be 100% funded by the Government of India and the actual cost for the
preparation of literature, consultancy services, evaluation / special studies, workshops,
seminars etc., will be met by Govt. of India under this component.
Besides, making audio / video materials on cotton, preparation of software particularly
for information flow for surveillance purpose, and monitoring of scheme is essential.
State Level Seminar may also be organized by the implementing agencies inviting
farmers / extension workers / dealers / NGOs / KVKs and others. The State
Governments and the National Research Systems (ICAR / SAUs) may also submit their
proposal in this regard to Department of Agriculture and Cooperation through
Directorate of Cotton Development. Reputed NGOs/Cooperatives/Farmers‟ Association,
etc., could also be considered for financial support in this regard. The Directorate of
Cotton Development in turn will take final approval from the Department of Agriculture
and Cooperation.
        The productivity level in many cotton growing countries of the world is much
higher than obtained in India. It is important that in order to get familiarized with their
technology as well as improve the skill of our human resources, training of staff in other
countries / participation in the international seminars / study tours etc., will be initiated
and organized by Department of Agriculture and Cooperation. Besides, Directorate of
Cotton Development and the Crops Division of the Department of Agriculture and
Cooperation will be suitably strengthened for monitoring purpose.
6.3     New Interventions :
The various State Governments also have their area-specific requirements, which may
not be covered by the components. Some of the technologies like seed for inter-
cropping, Bt. cotton detection kits, bio-fertilizers, green manuring, micro-nutrients, water
pond, small seed gin, hybrid seed production by the farmers for their own consumption
etc., are very much essential to boost the productivity of cotton. But these components
are not covered under MM II programme. In view of the demands from the cotton
growing States,. It has been approved that 10% of total allocation may be utilized by the



                                             62
States for new interventions as per their local needs. These innovations / interventions
will be incorporated in the State Annual Plan to be submitted to the Department of
Agriculture and Cooperation for approval. While proposing new initiatives, the State
must ensure that;
       a)     the Government of India and States would share the expenditure on 75 : 25
            basis on new interventions;
       b)     they shall not be covered under any other approved scheme of central or
            State Government;
       c)     expenditure on new initiatives should not be more than10% of the allocation
            of States and;
       d)     the subsidy on new interventions should not exceed 25% of the cost, which
            are provided to farmers.

                 The soil health has suffered to
          a great extent on account of
          intensive Sugarcane cultivation and
          large-scale adoption of rationing
          cropping system, cultivation of
          marginal lands and lack of use of
          compost/ FYM. The total nutrient
          drawn from the soil, for example by

          rationing cropping sequence is more
          than addition of nutrients by way of
          chemical fertilizers. There has been
          a constant decline in the organic
          matter content of the soils, as a
          result, the fertilizers use efficiency
          has also declined. If the agriculture
          production system has to be made
          sustainable, the soil health needs to
          be restored and maintained.
                   The object of the scheme is to
          popularize bio-fertilizer amongst the
          farmers to enhance/ supplement the
          nutrient requirement of crop and to
          increase use efficiency of chemical
          fertilizers.      Bio-fertilizer      like
          Azatobactor, PSB and other organic
          formulations would be supplied to
          farmers and assistance proposed to
          be given to the farmers for the use of
          bio-fertilizer in Sugarcane crops as
          demonstration to cover 1625 hect. @
          Rs. 800/- per hects.

of Rs.1200/- or 25% subsidy per unit (Size 10‟ x 3‟ x 1.5‟) whichever is less will be

provided for production and use of Vermi Compost . The farmers were persuaded

and have started production of vermi compost of their own level without taking any

assistance from the Govt.
