Implementation of Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY) in Sorada Block

“Paramparagat Krishi Vikas Yojana (PKVY)” a sub-component of Soil Health Management (SHM) scheme under National Mission of Sustainable Agriculture (NMSA) aims at development of sustainable models of organic farming through a mix of traditional wisdom and modern science to ensure long term soil fertility buildup, resource conservation and helps in climate change adaption and mitigation. It primarily aims to increase soil fertility and thereby helps in production of healthy food through organic practices without the use of agro-chemicals. PKVY also aims at empowering farmers through institutional development through clusters approach not only in farm practices management, input production, quality assurance but also in value addition and direct marketing through innovative means. Participatory Guarantee System under PGS-India programme will be the key approach for quality assurance under the PKVY. The farmers will have option to adopt any form of organic farming in compliance of PGS-India standards. While adopting a system it must be ensured that the system adopted is compatible to the area and crop and assures optimum yield and provides adequate measures to manage nutrients, pests and diseases. Farmers will have the flexibility to use appropriate package of practice(s) best suited to their situation.

OBJECTIVES

> To promote natural resource based integrated and climate resilient sustainable farming systems that ensure maintenance and increase of soil fertility, natural resource conservation, on-farm nutrient recycling and minimize dependence of farmers on external inputs.

> To reduce cost of agriculture to farmers through sustainable integrated organic farming systems thereby enhancing farmer’s net income per unit of land.

> To sustainably produce chemical free and nutritious food for human consumption.

> To protect environment from hazardous inorganic chemicals by adoption of eco-friendly low cost traditional techniques and farmer friendly technologies.

> To empower farmers through their own institutional development in the form of clusters and groups with capacity to manage production, processing, value addition and certification management.

> To make farmers entrepreneurs through direct market linkages with local and national markets.

Odisha Millets Mission

“Special Programme for Promotion of Millets in Tribal Areas”

The nutritious millets traditionally occupied substantial part of the diets and crop systems in tribal areas of Odisha. Millets require less water and are more resilient to climate vulnerability. They can also be cultivated on the undulating and change and be cultivated even in undulating terrain. Reduction in millets resulted in nutrition deficiency. It led to unsustainable cropping systems increasing demand on water. In order to address growing crop failures and nutritional issues, millets need to be revived. To revive the millets, a flagship programme called “Special Programme for Promotion of Millets in Tribal Areas” has been launched by Department of Agriculture & Farmers Empowerment, Odisha. Programme intends to revive millets in rained farming systems and household consumption.

The project “Special Programme for promotion of Millets in Tribal Areas of Odisha” originated from the state level consultation on the subject “Comprehensive revival of millets securing nutrition and mitigating droughts in southern Odisha” held on 27th January 2016 at NCDS, Bhubaneswar organised by Planning and Convergence Department, Government of Odisha. As a follow up on the plenary recommendations chaired by Development Commissioner cum Additional Chief Secretary, a detailed Programme framework was developed.

Major Objectives of the Programme:

  • Increasing Household Consumption of millets by about 25% to enhance household nutrition security and to create demand for millets.
  • Promoting Millet Processing enterprises at panchayat and Block level to ease processing at households and for value added markets
  • Improving Productivity of millets crop systems and make them profitable.
  • Developing Millets Enterprises and establishing Market Linkages to rural/urban markets with focus on women entrepreneurs.
  • Inclusion of millets in State Nutrition Programmes and Public Distribution System

Special Programme for promotion of millets in tribal areas was launched in 2017 in Ganjam districts covering Sorada block in Phase 2 initiation
