India Rise in Rice Productivity
A Centrally Sponsored Scheme “Integrated Cereals Development Programme in Rice Based Cropping Systems Areas (ICDP-Rice)” is under implementation from October 2000. In order to increase the productivity and production of rice (paddy) in the country. Under the scheme assistance is provided on 90:10 percentage sharing basis between Government of India and the States for propagation of improved production technology, hybrid rice production technology, integrated pest management through field demonstrations, training of farmers, transfer of technology through electronic media and published literature, farm implements, installation of sprinkler irrigation system, varietal replacement and production of certified seeds. Besides, Frontline Demonstrations are also organized by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) on farmers’ fields on 100 percent GOI assistance. The Government is also giving encouragement to improved technologies for rice such as System of Rice Intensification (SRI), Zero Tillage and adoption of other resource conservation technologies.

As a result of these efforts, productivity of paddy has increased from 2979 kg/hectare in 1999-2000 to 3153 kg/hectare in 2005-06.

This information was given in the Lok Sabha today by Shri Kanti Lal Bhuria, Minister of State for Agriculture in a written reply.
