A Centrally Sponsored Scheme on Integrated Cereals Development Programme in rice based cropping system areas (ICDP-Rice) is under implementation to increase rice production in the country. The scheme has been subsumed under Macro Management Mode of Agriculture with effect from October 2000 to provide flexibility to States based on local needs. Under the scheme assistance is provided for propagation of improved production technology hybrid rice production technology, integrated pest management through field demonstrations; training of farmers including women; transfer of technology through electronic media and published literature; farm implements; installation of sprinkler irrigation system; varietal replacement; production of certified seeds, etc. Besides, frontline demonstrations are also organized by the India Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) on farmers fields.

The Government of India is aware of the lower productivity of paddy in India as compared to countries like Japan. During 2001 the productivity of paddy in India was 2964 Kilogram per hectare (kg/ha.) as against 7205 kg/ha in the United States of America (USA), 6659 kg/ha in Japan and 6350 kg/ha in China.
