KADAPA:  Department of Agriculture in Kadapa is drawing up plans to make seeds available to farmers of the district treating Rythu Bharosa Kendram (RBK) as unit. All officials under a kendram are expected to contact farmers and make a detailed inquiry, so that a consolidated figure could be arrived at.

Tentatively, it is expected that 9,000 quintals of Narayani variety and 11,000 quintals of K-6 variety of groundnut seeds, apart from 65,000 quintals of Bengal gram will be supplied to farmers at subsidised rates. Prices of seeds have not yet been finalised. It is also not known whether procurement of groundnut seeds will be through contractors or farmers. However, tenders will be called for making available Bengal gram seeds.

 

Agriculture joint director has asked mandal-level officers to furnish RBK-wise details of hectares over which farmers cultivate paddy, whether of BPT-5204, RNR-15048 or NDRL 7 and 8 varieties. Likewise, information has also been sought regarding sowing area of sunflower, local horse gram, ragi, sorghum, maize and other crops.

Further, field officials have been asked to estimate the amount of water required for cultivation, apart from types of urea, DAP, compound fertilisers, murate of potash (MOP) and single super phosphate (SSP). All these details are to be collected RBK-wise than pro-rata basis.

 

Agriculture officials are busy gathering all these details pending finalisation of the district-level Rabi plan.
