GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

Suggested policy interventions by the Agriculture / Irrigation / Animal Husbandry / Allied Departments

In view of recurring dry weather adopt the following:

·         Improved irrigation systems (drip, sprinkler etc) to increase water use efficiency.

·         For a long term measure create water resources in chronically deficit / scarcity rainfall areas / drought prone areas.

·         Encouraging small ruminants / milch cattle particularly in drought prone areas to increase livelihood opportunities supplement farm income and check migration of farmers.

·         In most of the districts in the country, the situation is drought prone and needs contingency plans with relevant support of seeds of short duration and recommended crops, fertilizer inputs; further, there is need to supply diesel at affordable cost and also electric power supply for facilitation of protective irrigation.

 

I.    Agronomic practices

·         Remove and destroy Parthenium hysterophorus weed, particularly in the vicinity of cotton crop since it plays host to mango mealy bug.

·         For the ensuring kharif season, as per the crop planning, procure quality inputs viz., seeds, fertilizers, and biofertilisers.

·         Before sowing of pulse crops treat the seeds with rhizobium and for sorghum and pearl millet treat with Azato bacter.

·         Before sowing treat the seeds of all crops with Captan & Thiram & Carbandazim @ 2g/kg of seeds and Trichoderma @ 4g/kg of seed.

·         Recommended and certified seeds should be procured.

·         Care should be taken that rain water does not stagnate in the vermi compost pits.


 

II. Soil and Water Conservation

·          Strengthen the field bunds. Take up necessary soil and water conservation measures for minimizing water flow and to minimize soil loss from the fields.

·          Necessary activities may be taken up for development and construction of rain water harvesting structures like farm pond.

·          Take up repair of farm ponds, cleaning of drains.

·          Take up inter terrace land management practices like compartmental bending etc., as recommended by the local State Agricultural University.

III. Farm Machinery

·         Use custom hiring services and agri clinic centers for inputs/advisories.

The following farm implements may be preferred for interculture operations:

IV. Agroforestry

 

·          Utilize the available infrastructure facilities/scheme for micro irrigation to the perennial species for better establishment, growth and production.

·          In agroforestry intended areas, select ideal sites, clean the bushes, boulders etc, demarcate appropriate sites / locations as per spacing required for different tree species. Prepare the pits of size 1mx1mx1m for fruit plants and 45-60x45-60x45-60cm for other tree species. Fill the pits with equal proportions of good soil from the pit, black soil in red soil areas and FYM and keep ready for planting in rainy season.

·          As a long term policy for drought mitigation in rainfed areas, plantations need to be encouraged with perennials (fruit, fodder, bio-fuel and bio-mass yielding trees) in wastelands, upper reaches of the watershed, key lines, contours and marginal lands in a participatory mode. By promoting perennial plantations / farming systems, the rainfed farmers will be prepared for facing risk due to weather aberrations.

 

V   Horticulture

·         Mulching in tree/plant basins of horticultural crops, for moisture  conservation.

·         Pruning of dead wood in the orchards should be done.

·         Crescent shaped basins have to be formed in the orchards across the slope for rainwater harvesting.

·         Recommended doses of fertilizers and manures have to be applied after receipt of rainfall.

VI. Plant Protection

·        Ploughing may be taken in all the fields before kharif sowing.  This is to ensure pest and diseases control.

Pod Borer Management in Cotton:

·         Raise barrier crops (2 / 3 rows) of sorghum / maize.

·         Planting trap crop of castor @ 50 plants/acre for attracting Spodoptera litura while marigold @ 100 plants / acre for attracting Helicoverpa armigera.

·         To stop movement of spodoptera from one field to other, dig a trench of 1 foot depth around the cotton field and spray folidol or lindane dust.

·         To monitor the presence and intensity of spodoptera and Helicoverpa, use 4 pheromone traps / acre.

·         Topping operation at 90-100 days for destruction of Helicoverpa eggs.

·         Poison bait for spodoptera à 5 kgs Rice bran + 500 ml monocrotophos / 500 gms carbaryl powder  + 500 gms jaggery.

·         Erect T shape bird perches (15-20 / acre).

·         Releasing 20,000 Trichogramma parasitoids and 4,000 chrysopa predators à 3-4 times.

·         Spray 250 larval equivalents of HNPV or SNPV + 1 kg Jaggery + 100 ml sandovit + 50 gms Robin blue à in evening times for the control of Helicoverpa and Spodoptera respectively.

·         Spray 5% NSKE (10 kgs of Neem seeds in 200 l of water à soak and filter the filterate).

·         Spray 400 gms / ml of Bt.

·         Hand picking of 4th instars and above stage larvae.

 

 

VII.Animal health care

Hygiene

·         Animals should be protected from abnormal weather (rain, winds, excessive heat, cold and dampness) by providing adequate shelter and clean water for drinking. The hygiene should be given top priority. 

Nutrition

·         For milch animals regularly follow schedule of 1 kg feed + 50 g mineral mixture per 2 litres of milk yield. Feed animals with a mixture of green grass + hay + minerals + dry feed like a khichri. Ensure cleanliness in cows having advanced pregnancy to avoid mastitis. Supplemental mineral mixture (30-40 g and salt 20 g per animal) may be given regularly to pregnant / other animals.

·         Tall green grasses from forestland should be harvested before allowing sheep and goat to graze and should be dried in shed to make hay of good quality. Such preserved hay can be fed along with wheat / rice straw to milch animals upto June month. As nutritive value of hay is higher than that of wheat / rice straw, this helps in sustainable milk production.

·         Under irrigated conditions, oats, Berseem or Lucerne should be sown for fodder purpose. They can be dried and baled easily (as hay) for feeding during long lean periods.

·         Do not feed animals if green fodder has not been frequently irrigated, if contamination by heavy metals etc., is likely.

Diseases

·         Livestock diseases are classified on the basis of the causative factor viz., bacterial, viral, parasitic, nutritional and metabolic disorders. Timely and adequate treatment of the diseased animals may be done. The prophylactic and preventive measures should be adopted on the advise of veterinarian (as mentioned in tables 1 & 2).

·         Newly born calves may be dehorned within 15 days.

·         If backyard poultry birds are infected with ticks and fleas, dip them up to neck in button (deltamethrin)  @ 1 ml/litre solution. Care should be taken to avoid entry of solution into nostrils and mouth of the birds.

·         When cows or buffaloes do not show heat symptoms or do not conceive-in timely (infertility conditions), their reproductive organs may be examined by a veterinarian.

Poultry

·         Periodic check up of birds may be done for infectious diseases like bird flue with the help of veterinarian and adopt suitable control measures like culling of bird flue infected poultry and burry or burn them.

·         Cover the sheds with paddy straw and arrange sprinklers / fans and foggers in sheds, as per needs. Feed poultry birds with mash.

GENERAL RECOMMENDATIONS

Suggested policy interventions by the Agriculture / Irrigation / Animal Husbandry / Allied Departments

In view of recurring dry weather adopt the following:

·         Improved irrigation systems (drip, sprinkler etc) to increase water use efficiency.

·         For a long term measure create water resources in chronically deficit / scarcity rainfall areas / drought prone areas.

·         Encouraging small ruminants / milch cattle particularly in drought prone areas to increase livelihood opportunities supplement farm income and check migration of farmers.

·         In most of the districts in the country, the situation is drought prone and needs contingency plans with relevant support of seeds of short duration and recommended crops, fertilizer inputs; further, there is need to supply diesel at affordable cost and also electric power supply for facilitation of protective irrigation.

 

I.    Agronomic practices

·         Remove and destroy Parthenium hysterophorus weed, particularly in the vicinity of cotton crop since it plays host to mango mealy bug.

·         For the ensuring kharif season, as per the crop planning, procure quality inputs viz., seeds, fertilizers, and biofertilisers.

·         Before sowing of pulse crops treat the seeds with rhizobium and for sorghum and pearl millet treat with Azato bacter.

·         Before sowing treat the seeds of all crops with Captan & Thiram & Carbandazim @ 2g/kg of seeds and Trichoderma @ 4g/kg of seed.

·         Recommended and certified seeds should be procured.

·         Care should be taken that rain water does not stagnate in the vermi compost pits.


 

II. Soil and Water Conservation

·          Strengthen the field bunds. Take up necessary soil and water conservation measures for minimizing water flow and to minimize soil loss from the fields.

·          Necessary activities may be taken up for development and construction of rain water harvesting structures like farm pond.

·          Take up repair of farm ponds, cleaning of drains.

·          Take up inter terrace land management practices like compartmental bending etc., as recommended by the local State Agricultural University.

III. Farm Machinery

·         Use custom hiring services and agri clinic centers for inputs/advisories.

The following farm implements may be preferred for interculture operations:

IV. Agroforestry

 

·          Utilize the available infrastructure facilities/scheme for micro irrigation to the perennial species for better establishment, growth and production.

·          In agroforestry intended areas, select ideal sites, clean the bushes, boulders etc, demarcate appropriate sites / locations as per spacing required for different tree species. Prepare the pits of size 1mx1mx1m for fruit plants and 45-60x45-60x45-60cm for other tree species. Fill the pits with equal proportions of good soil from the pit, black soil in red soil areas and FYM and keep ready for planting in rainy season.

·          As a long term policy for drought mitigation in rainfed areas, plantations need to be encouraged with perennials (fruit, fodder, bio-fuel and bio-mass yielding trees) in wastelands, upper reaches of the watershed, key lines, contours and marginal lands in a participatory mode. By promoting perennial plantations / farming systems, the rainfed farmers will be prepared for facing risk due to weather aberrations.

 

V   Horticulture

·         Mulching in tree/plant basins of horticultural crops, for moisture  conservation.

·         Pruning of dead wood in the orchards should be done.

·         Crescent shaped basins have to be formed in the orchards across the slope for rainwater harvesting.

·         Recommended doses of fertilizers and manures have to be applied after receipt of rainfall.

VI. Plant Protection

·        Ploughing may be taken in all the fields before kharif sowing.  This is to ensure pest and diseases control.

Pod Borer Management in Cotton:

·         Raise barrier crops (2 / 3 rows) of sorghum / maize.

·         Planting trap crop of castor @ 50 plants/acre for attracting Spodoptera litura while marigold @ 100 plants / acre for attracting Helicoverpa armigera.

·         To stop movement of spodoptera from one field to other, dig a trench of 1 foot depth around the cotton field and spray folidol or lindane dust.

·         To monitor the presence and intensity of spodoptera and Helicoverpa, use 4 pheromone traps / acre.

·         Topping operation at 90-100 days for destruction of Helicoverpa eggs.

·         Poison bait for spodoptera à 5 kgs Rice bran + 500 ml monocrotophos / 500 gms carbaryl powder  + 500 gms jaggery.

·         Erect T shape bird perches (15-20 / acre).

·         Releasing 20,000 Trichogramma parasitoids and 4,000 chrysopa predators à 3-4 times.

·         Spray 250 larval equivalents of HNPV or SNPV + 1 kg Jaggery + 100 ml sandovit + 50 gms Robin blue à in evening times for the control of Helicoverpa and Spodoptera respectively.

·         Spray 5% NSKE (10 kgs of Neem seeds in 200 l of water à soak and filter the filterate).

·         Spray 400 gms / ml of Bt.

·         Hand picking of 4th instars and above stage larvae.

 

 

VII.Animal health care

Hygiene

·         Animals should be protected from abnormal weather (rain, winds, excessive heat, cold and dampness) by providing adequate shelter and clean water for drinking. The hygiene should be given top priority. 

Nutrition

·         For milch animals regularly follow schedule of 1 kg feed + 50 g mineral mixture per 2 litres of milk yield. Feed animals with a mixture of green grass + hay + minerals + dry feed like a khichri. Ensure cleanliness in cows having advanced pregnancy to avoid mastitis. Supplemental mineral mixture (30-40 g and salt 20 g per animal) may be given regularly to pregnant / other animals.

·         Tall green grasses from forestland should be harvested before allowing sheep and goat to graze and should be dried in shed to make hay of good quality. Such preserved hay can be fed along with wheat / rice straw to milch animals upto June month. As nutritive value of hay is higher than that of wheat / rice straw, this helps in sustainable milk production.

·         Under irrigated conditions, oats, Berseem or Lucerne should be sown for fodder purpose. They can be dried and baled easily (as hay) for feeding during long lean periods.

·         Do not feed animals if green fodder has not been frequently irrigated, if contamination by heavy metals etc., is likely.

Diseases

·         Livestock diseases are classified on the basis of the causative factor viz., bacterial, viral, parasitic, nutritional and metabolic disorders. Timely and adequate treatment of the diseased animals may be done. The prophylactic and preventive measures should be adopted on the advise of veterinarian (as mentioned in tables 1 & 2).

·         Newly born calves may be dehorned within 15 days.

·         If backyard poultry birds are infected with ticks and fleas, dip them up to neck in button (deltamethrin)  @ 1 ml/litre solution. Care should be taken to avoid entry of solution into nostrils and mouth of the birds.

·         When cows or buffaloes do not show heat symptoms or do not conceive-in timely (infertility conditions), their reproductive organs may be examined by a veterinarian.

Poultry

·         Periodic check up of birds may be done for infectious diseases like bird flue with the help of veterinarian and adopt suitable control measures like culling of bird flue infected poultry and burry or burn them.

·         Cover the sheds with paddy straw and arrange sprinklers / fans and foggers in sheds, as per needs. Feed poultry birds with mash.
