STRATEGIES
•
Low productivity and high potential areas , rainfed areas & remote areas
•
Cropping system approach rather than individual crop
•
Agro-climatic zone wise planning and cluster approach for crop productivity enhancement
•
Pulse production enhancement through utilization of rice fallow, rice bunds and intercropping
of pulses with coarse cereals, oilseeds and commercial crops
•
Promotion and extension of improved technologies i.e., seed, INM, IPM, farm machineries ,
micro irrigation
•
Input use efficiency and resource conservation technologies
•
Post-harvest management ,value chain integration and marketing support to pulses & coarse
cereals
•
Local/site specific initiatives
•
Capacity building of the farmers/extension functionaries
