In mono-agri land, govt investigates 2nd crop choices

The Mamata Banerjee government has drawn in its Science and Technology and Biotechnology Department to distinguish potential zones to grow a second harvest in the mono-crop agrarian land that turns practically neglected after the kharif season.

Out of a complete 52.5 lakh hectare cultivable land (net yield territory) in Bengal, in any event 13 lakh hectare in 12 areas is mono-crop where predominantly paddy is developed in kharif with adequate flexibly of water during the storm.

In any case, the region stays uncultivable in the excess season after the kharif paddy is collected.

Presently, the transition to distinguish the rice decrepit territory has been taken up to guarantee further financial development of the district by helping ranchers produce different yields in a year.

The state Agriculture division is the nodal body to complete the whole plan and has given different information on crop examples of the previous barely any years to the Science and Technology and Biotechnology office.

The last is setting up the base of the task by building up a guide by gathering satellite pictures through the cycle of “distant detecting”.

With the headway in innovation, researchers will gauge the dampness level of the dirt chiefly when the 13 lakh hectare mono-crop cultivable land stays neglected in the period after the kharif development. In view of the dampness level and different boundaries, an information bank containing areas of the land where development of the subsequent yield is conceivable will be readied.

“The whole examination will be led with the assistance of satellite pictures with no ground-level actual mediation. It will be badly designed to do the investigation in overcast seasons as it is beyond the realm of imagination to expect to get clear pictures. So it will take in any event one-and-a-half-years,” said a senior official of the Science and Technology and Biotechnology office.

The specialists from the state Agriculture office will settle on the sort of harvests to be developed at the potential territories subsequent to getting the point by point report from the Science and Technology and Biotechnology division.

“Ranchers will be urged to develop heartbeats and oilseeds as winter crops at these recognized regions after paddy development in rainstorm”. “Paddy development as the second yield in these zones would not appear to be conceivable because of absence of adequate dampness in the dirt of these mono-crop lands. Weight on water system offices in these regions would be given accentuation,” said an official of the state Agriculture office.

Seven specialists under one senior researcher as the nodal official are chipping away at the task in 12 locale, including Birbhum, West Burdwan, a few pieces of East Burdwan, Purulia, Bankura, Jhargram and a couple of areas in North Bengal.
