Transcripts - National Mission on Agriculture Extension

  • 1. NATIONAL MISSION ON AGRICULTURE EXTENSION Presented by:- Miss. Nishu Kanwar Bhati Ph.D
  • 2. “National Mission on Agricultural Extension and Technology (NMAET)” Agricultural Technology, including the adoption/ promotion of critical inputs, and improved agronomic practices were being disseminated under 17 different schemes of the Department of Agriculture & Cooperation during the 11th Plan. NMAET has been envisaged as the next step towards this objective through the amalgamation of these schemes. The Centrally Sponsored Scheme “National Mission on Agricultural Extension and Technology (NMAET)” was implemented during the XII Plan.
  • 3. Sub Mission on Agricultural Extension (SMAE) Sub-Mission on Seed and Planting Material (SMSP) Sub Mission on Agricultural Mechanizatio n (SMAM) Sub Mission on Plant Protection and Plant Quarantine (SMPP)
  • 4. The common threads running across all 4 Sub-Missions are Extension & Technology. Seeds, pesticides and machinery are three important agricultural inputs whose technological and economic significance needs to be disseminated to all the farmers through efficacious extension machinery. However, besides the core component of ensuring easy availability of these key inputs (i.e. Seeds, Pesticides and Machinery) at reasonable prices, there will be a subject specific capacity building element built in the latter three Sub- Missions as well.
  • 5. Farmers Interest Groups (FIGs) and Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs). Availability of quality seeds, plant protection Interactive methods of information dissemination, Popularisation of modern and appropriate technologies AIM
  • 6. Sub Mission on Agricultural Extension (SMAE) Sub-Mission on Agricultural Extension will focus on awareness creation and enhanced use of appropriate technologies in agriculture & allied sectors. Gains made in the past will be consolidated and strengthened through increased penetration of extension functionaries. Personnel trained under Agri-Clinics and Agri-Business Centres Scheme (ACABC) and Diploma in Agriculture Extension Services for Input Dealers (DAESI) will also provide extension services to the farmers. Use of interactive and innovative methods of information dissemination like pico projectors, low cost films, handheld devices, mobile based services, Kisan Call Centres (KCCs) etc. will be used and convergence brought among extension efforts under different programmes and schemes at village level through the institution of ATMA (Agriculture Technology Management Agency) and Block Technology Teams (BTTs).
  • 7. Sub-Mission on Seed and Planting Material (SMSP) Adoption of quality seeds is the most cost effective means for increasing agricultural production and productivity. The interventions included in the Sub-Mission will cover the entire gamut of seed chain from nucleus seed to supply to farmers for sowing and also to the major stakeholders in the seed chain and also provide for support for infrastructure to create an enabling environment for development of the Sector. SMSP also envisages strengthening of Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers’ Rights Authority (PPV&FRA) in order to put in place an effective system for protection of plant varieties, rights of farmers and plant breeders and to encourage development of new varieties of plants.
  • 8. Sub Mission on Agricultural Mechanization (SMAM) There is a strong co-relation between farm power availability and agricultural productivity. Therefore, Sub-Mission on Agricultural Mechanization will focus on farm mechanization. The Sub-Mission will mainly cater to the needs of the small and marginal farmers through institutional arrangements such as custom hiring, mechanization of selected villages, subsidy for procurement of machines & equipments, etc.
  • 9. Sub Mission on Plant Protection and Plant Quarantine (SMPP) Sub-Mission on Plant Protection included in NMAET envisages increase in agricultural production by keeping the crop disease free using scientific and environment friendly techniques through promotion of Integrated Pest Management. Strengthening and Modernization of Pest Management Approach aims at this vital aspect of Plant Protection and also covers regulatory requirements of pesticides. The component on Strengthening & Modernization of Plant Quarantine facilities in India is regulatory in nature with the aim of preventing introduction and spread of exotic pests that are harmful to crops by regulating/restricting import of plant/plant products. Monitoring pesticide residues in food commodities and environmental samples is also included in this Sub- Mission. The component on National Institute of Plant Health Management (NIPHM) will promote environmentally sustainable Plant Health Management practices in diverse and changing agro-climatic conditions, pesticide management, and Biosecurity through capacity building programmes.
  • 10. LINKAGES BETWEEN DIFFERENT SUB-MISSIONS The gaps in all farmer centric trainings and field extension in respect of other Sub-Missions of NMAET would also be included in the SREP. SREPs will be prepared in coordination with the line departments, Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVKs), Panchayati Raj Institutions (PRIs), Private Sector, farmers and other stake-holders at the district level. Funds earmarked for such activities under different Sub-Missions of NMAET, Missions & Schemes / Programmes will be utilized through ATMA. Manpower under ATMA will be effectively utilized for extension related activities under various Sub-Missions. Technical, legal, administrative & regulatory functions and other components (not related to farmer centric extension) will continue to be discharged independently under the respective Sub-Missions.

  • 14. NATIONAL MISSION ON AGRICULTURE EXTENSION Mission statement “National Mission on Agricultural Extension shall support the state governments, local bodies & institutions for enhancing their capacity and institutionalizing structures & mechanisms for a knowledge-driven, accountable, decentralized, broad-based & participatory programme planning & implementation to facilitate farmers, farmwomen & youth to achieve economic, food, nutritional & environmental security and thus achieve Plan objective of faster, sustainable and more inclusive agricultural growth”
  • 15. Salient features The Mission shall focus on sustainable small farm agriculture, especially in rainfed areas, through integrated farming systems approach incorporating components of natural resource management, minimizing external costs and maximizing realization through value addition in crops, horticulture, livestock, fisheries etc. Programme implementation, convergence, service delivery and good governance which are the central focus of 12th Plan, shall be the core strategy of the Mission. Convergence shall be achieved through Convergence of technologies by following the Integrated Farming Systems approach Convergence of schemes and programmes through project approach to extension Institutional convergence at national and state level through cabinet sub-committees; and Convergence at District level through representation of various institutions of ATMA
  • 16. Knowledge driven growth to be facilitated by Providing quality extension resources at cutting-edge level along with critical mass of extension personnel (one extension worker for about 1200 farmers) by supplementing public extension system with agripreneurs, trained input dealers etc.; Enhancing the extension efficiency and effectiveness by institutionalizing Farmers Friends at village level; Capacity building of farmers, extension functionaries, institutions and other stakeholders on lifetime basis through a network of Knowledge Centres like KVKs, Agriculture Research Stations etc.; Partnering with knowledge generators (public & private, formal & informal systems) to develop knowledge portals for capturing, collating and disseminating knowledge through all channels including print & electronic media, farm journals, regular meets etc.; Reaching out to and connecting farmers and stakeholders so that they communicate with each other; and Test all indigenous technical know-how (ITKs), identify farmer innovators, recognize their skills and leverage for field extension as farmer consultants.
  • 17. Precision, quantification and benchmarking, which facilitated growth of modern economy, shall be incorporated in the Mission in various areas like Delineating, coding and mapping farming situations, yield gaps, yield variability; Technology availability, adoption and impact directories and indices; Indices of resource use efficiency; Defining quantifiable capacity levels, testing and certifying capacity of farmers, extension functionaries, trainers, institutions; and Monetization of agriculture wealth of the district.
  • 18. Inclusive growth shall be achieved through Comprehensive framework of development of difficult areas and disadvantaged groups of farmers on the highest priority by every sector since the low yield in these areas (which otherwise have huge potential) keeps the macro yields low; Assessing gaps in infrastructure and development on each parameter and bridging the gaps as per fixed time schedule; Computing index of variancestandard deviation of growth along with average growth to measure inclusion and prescribing inclusion as a target along with average growth; Constructing disadvantaged index and matrix to capture various disadvantages for prioritizing resource allocation by every sector; Prescribing allocation of mission resources to these groups eg proportionate allocation to those belonging to SC, ST, small & marginal farmers and women.
  • 19. The human resource and infrastructure of SAU/ICAR/KVK and other institutions shall be utilized to organize large scale frontline demonstrations of technology under field conditions which serve as training arena for farmers & extension functionaries. Concept of Challenge Approach should be developed and implemented to realize the full potential of decentralized approach and the zeal and capacity of various stakeholders to extend the frontiers of possibilities of achievement for others to follow. The Mission shall fully leverage power of ICT for linking every component of the Mission from national to field level, provide accountability and empower farmers to demand & access service. Continuous contact with farmers shall be established to provide knowledge & information; redress their concerns & grievances; and capture ground reality for use in policy making & improving delivery through Farmers portal Kissan Call Centres Common Service Centres Short message services Community radio stations etc.
  • 20. MANAGE, EEIs and SAMETIs have to be strengthened for aligning and linking all their activities with the mission. Leveraging youth for agriculture and generating employment in providing on and off farm services through various interventions and programs; pilot testing program of ‘full employment for youth in agriculture’; developing concepts of employment budgeting and employment mapping and designing technology models and extension approach for attracting, stimulating and retaining youth in agriculture. Launch “Jai Kisan” movement to mobilize every societal unit and generate a national movement to support agriculture and give prestige to farming through creating proper atmosphere.
  • 21. Promote frugal household food and nutrition security through counseling farmwomen and youth on scientific storage, processing & value addition, food & water quality, better eating habits, maintain personal & kitchen hygiene etc. to leverage the preventive healthcare properties of food for frugal health care. Similarly promote urban agriculture for tackling food inflation, and promoting nutrition, livelihood and environmental security. Shift from concept of greening to edible greening and landscaping to edible landscaping to converge environment and food concerns. Centre for agrarian distress and conflicts to track, study and provide policy support to tackle distresses, such as suicides by farmers and their indebtedness, farmers’ agitations, violence and conflicts and other concerns through action research projects, challenge projects and linkages with other institutions.
