Introduction of High Yielding Varieties and Technologies

To maximize agriculture production from the small pieces of agriculture lands through the selection of economically and ecologically potential crops, introducing quality inputs (seeds, planting material, nutrients, pesticides/ bio agents, etc.), high yielding varieties, appropriate package of practices, technical knowhow, and improved technologies thereby revitalizing the mountain agriculture and enhancing incomes through agriculture and horticulture commodities marketing. The key strategy is as: (i) deploying local youth as agriculture scouts for technology deployment, inputs supply and day to day advice to farmers; (ii) promoting Community Facility Centers (CFCs) in the center location of cluster for supplying high quality inputs; (iii) demonstrations, expansion of improved varieties, package of practices and technologies; (iv) Integrated Pest Management (IPM); (v) improving soil health, bio-composting, IPNM for safe agriculture; (vi) establishing vegetable, spice and fruit nurseries in an entrepreneurial model; (vii) precision farming; and (viii) high density temperate orchards.


Demonstration of improved and high yield varieties of selected crops as well as locally suited varieties with appropriate package of practices under the close supervision of technical staff/ hired scientists/ experts is the key intervention which covers introduction of new varieties, production technologies, disease and pest management, harvesting, storing and all management practices in the farmer’s field. The successful varieties and technologies are being up scaled and replicated on farmer’s interest and demands with the objective of ensuring food security, nutrition of poor households and producing scalable surplus volume for the market.
