Balance and Integrated Use of Fertilizers

1.        SCHEME  CODE               :    MP-A-04    

2.        PROGRAMME NAME     :    Balanced and  Integrated Use Of                                                                              Fertilizers  (BIUS).

3.       OBJECTS OF PROGRAMME :

1. To promote the balanced & Integrated use of fertilizers.

2. To ensure effective quality control of fertilizers.

3. To assess the availability of  micronutrients   in the soil.

4. On the basis of   analysis of micronutrient availability in the   soil, adoption of promotional activities for application of micronutrient in the soil.

4.         PRESENT STATUS:-

 a.        Use of fertilizers in terms of  nutrients in M.P.  is  N 29.21, P 15.75 & K 2.17  Kgs per hectare (1997-98) . It is evident from  the figures that consumption of 'K' is very poor as compared to 'N' & 'P' .According to studies and experience it is found that due to less use of ?K?, the productivity of crop is not increasing at  desired level. The crop like Soybean, Paddy and Groundnut are giving very good response to zinc,sulphur and rock phosphate etc.  This indicates that special  emphasis is to be given for promotion of balanced use of fertilizer and also use of micronutrients.

 b.        The consumption of fertilizer particularly mixture and complexes is increasing  very fast.  The Quality control facilities are very limited in the state . There are    only five quality control labs in the state.  Soil testing facilities are   also insufficient.  Strengthening of existing soil testing facilities and fertilizer testing , as well as creation of the facilities for  analysis of micronutrients in the soil has become necessary.

COMPONENTS

EXPLANATION IN SUPPORT OF NEW COMPONENT

1

Strengthening the existing fertilizer testing laboratories.

To facilitate the laboratories for purchase of required chemicals, glass-ware and equipment for efficient working

2

Strengthening the existing soil testing laboratories.

To make available the required chemicals , glass-ware and equipment for efficient working as well as quick analysis of samples.

3

Scheduling large training program for quality control, compost  making, use of biomas, use of fertilizer and soil testing.

 

10.       JUSTIFICATION :

1.      At   present  we   have  four   fertiliser  testing   laboratories analyzing approximately 8000 fertilizer samples every year.  The state  had consumed about 32-35  lakh tons of fertilizer in the year 1998-99. The share of one  fertilizer testing Laboratory on consumption basis comes to about  6.00 lakh tones of fertilizer. The fertilizer consumption in coming years is expected to increase by 25%. For proper & effective quality control the efficiency of the quality control laboratory is proposed to be increased by facilitating them with supply of chemicals, glassware's and other necessary equipment's in the sufficient quantities.

2.      Quality control training program for extension workers as well for dealers and farmers is a prime requirement of the day.  Effective training  program  once  a year in each district is proposed to be organised.
