Crop Development Schemes for achieving higher yield of Pulses

New Delhi: December 14,2012

The Indian Council of Agricultural Research has taken several measures to strengthen the basic research in pulses to generate information for its utilization by All India Coordinated Research Projects on Pulses to develop location specific varieties and technology and 124 high yielding, short duration varieties of pulses suitable for varied agro ecologies have been developed during last 5 years. Besides, to increase the production and productivity of pulses in the country, the Government of India is implementing several Crop Development Schemes/Programmes such as National Food Security Mission (NFSM-Pulses), Special Plan to achieve more than 19 million tones of pulse production during 2012-13, Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY), Macro Management of Agriculture (MMA), Accelerated Pulses Production Programme (A3P) etc.

 

As per a study by Tata Strategic Management Group, the practices like existence of strong Pulses Grower Associations; more attention on pest and nutrient management; focused approach on development of new markets; easy access to credit for farmers and more investment in research and development are helpful in achieving higher yield of pulses.
