1.     SCHEME  CODE                :           MP-A-10        

2.     PROGRAMME NAME     :    Development  Of  Organics                                                                                         &  Sustainable Agriculture (DOSA)

3.     OBJECTS OF THE PROGRAMME :

1. To promote the use of bio-fertilizer.

2. To promote Green manuring practices amongst farmers to maintain humus and fertility in the soil.

3. To educate farmers for use of bio-fertilizer, production of  quality compost ,  Farm Yard  Manure (FYM)  and  use  of   biomas  for making       compost.

4. To popularize use of biogas slurry.

5. To prpare phasphorusenriched compost using rock phaosphate.

6. Recyling of bio massthrough NADEP method of composting

 7. Establisment of vermi compsting unite to produce vermicomposting

4  PRESENT STATUS :

Implementation of this scheme started in year 2001-02 under the guidance and supervision of a team of expeert comprising scient environmentalist and food management personals in 939 bio villages selected from 313 blocks of 45 dustructs in the state.Organic farming is in progress on Govt. farm on 50% area of total cultivable land.

6.     AREA OF OPERATION :-  All 45 districts of the state.

7.     MAJOR AREAS OF CONCERN :-

1.                 Now the time has come to improve humus availability in the soil. Green manuring, blue green algae use of cow-dung manure, prearation and use of NADEP phospho compost, and vermicompost are the main source of organic manure farming. These practices are to be popularised on mass scale.

8.     INTERVENTIONS :-

 1.      Promotion of  biofertilizer.

2.        Use  of  biomas for production of compost.

3.               Training on organic farming.

4         Production of vermicompost and its use

10.     JUSTIFICATION :

 (i)  The requirement of biofertilizer is much more than what sis being done. That is why  the state need to promote the use of Bio-fertilizer in coming years.

(ii)  The humus content of the soil is deteriorating day   by day.  Humus is the main component of  the  soil responsible for increasing water retention  capacity of the soil , as well as it facilitates the availability of nutrients and micro-nutrients from the soil to the plants.  Green manuring is one main practice  which can increase the humus in the soil considerably.  Green manuring  practice have reduced during last few decades.  The availabilityof green manuring seed  has also become a problem.  It is necessary to build an atmosphere for promoting green manuring practices, which necessitates to develop facilities for supply of green manuring seeds.

(iii)  Farmers are already making rural compost, farm yard manure and cow-dung manure. Technical  know how is required to be transferred to the farmers for preparing quality compost and farm yard manure. Almost all biomas available in the nature is going waste and is not being utilized for any purpose.  Good  quality   compost can be made out of this biomas by popularising NADEP method of making compost in rural areas.  A large scale training program is required for the extension workers as well as for the farmers for this purpose.

(iv) Blue Green Algae (BGA)  is an important source of  nitrogen fixation aerobically as well as an-aerobically. It is very effective in paddy fields. The state has area of about 1.80 million hectares under paddy crop. The productivity is about 850 Kgs per hectare. For boosting-up the productivity of paddy  we need to have effective Nitrogen fixation agent. Blue Green Algae  production program is proposed to be taken up in paddy growing area of the state. It is proposed to establish TWO BGA units in the state.

(vi   Extension Workers and the farmers in the state  are to be trained for effective implementation of the programs on Organic farming.It is proposed to organize two training programs each year, one before Kharif and one before Rabi on compost making , use of  biogas slurry ,NADEP , BGA and Vermi-culture in each district. each training program would entail an expenditure of approximately Rs. 5000/-.       

v.  Extension Workers and the farmers in the state are to be trained for effective implementation of the programs on Organic farming. It is proposed to organize two training programs each year, one before kharif and one before Rabi on aompost making, use of biogas slurry NADEP, BGA and Vermi-culture in each district each training program would entail an expenditure of approximately Rs. 6000/-.
