2) Higher adaptability: location specific selection suitable for lower
3) Recovery percentage is high (3.8 kg green cardamom after drying
    gives one kg) whereas in other varieties 5 kg or more gives 1 kg.
4) Yield per plant is 3.0 to 4.0 kg of dry cardamom compared to 2.5-3.0
    kg in Njallani- the most popular variety of the region.                 VIDEO

       Potato cultivation in hay made packets (with No land and less
       water) from Orissa
       • An innovative method of cultivating potato in sacks made from the ropes of paddy hay.
       • No land is required. A poor farmer can also do it on commercial basis.
       • No extra water is required. While washing hand and face, the water can be poured into
         the packet
       • Full fertiliser utilisation, due absence of weed
        10-15 kg of potato from one packet.

  Mulching of Salvadora persica with FYM – A Community
    wide practice of the villages Lapkaman and Augnoj

Farmers of Augnoj and Lapkaman villages of
Ahmedabad district are using Salvadora persica with
FYM for raising seedlings of paddy seeds. They also
put branches of Salvadora in paddy field to restrict
weed population and better growth
1) The seedlings are ready for transplantation in 22 days. This process
   otherwise requires about a month’s time.
2) As this practice involves lesser time, it helps the farmers in dealing better
   with monsoons, especially if they are irregular.
3) The practice helps attain 100 per cent germination of the seeds thereby
   reducing the seed requirement per hectare from 12 kg to 8 kg.
