Rural Transformation and Sustained Growth of Agriculture

Rural India suffers from poor infrastructure and inadequate amenities. Low agricultural growth perpetuates food and nutritional insecurities, which also reduces rural incomes. How can we encourage and support our villages in improving their living and livelihood conditions in innovative ways?

NHM as such is a very nice concept and has also been delivering results to an extent but now it needs a paradigm shift ....
the solution lies in going back to basics....as to where have we come with all the previous years' experience... and from where to start a corrective action....or may be a course correction....

Technologies have advanced in such a way that countries like Israel produce more from the roof tops of houses than countries like India where we have thousands of hectares of cultivatable land.

We have millions of people to educate and participate.

One thing that comes to my mind is... make everyone in this country a farmer. Also make every citizen serve for the country (in military service and/or govt. service) atleast for 2 years.

How to make everyone in this country a farmer.

In the school introduce a subject about agriculture, and growing vegetables and fruits in the garden or roof top. Educate people practically about growing trees. This can be part of curriculum, why not? our citizens should know hw to grow what they consume everyday.

Thats just one of the many things we can consider.

Similarly make options available to grow vegetables and fruits in the garden of houses and roof tops. Let us make the technologies available. Let us educate people. Let us create model houses.

People in our country lack awareness and guidance of how to, whether to, what to etc. If we can enable them through infrastructure and teaching through television etc. we can achieve some changes to begin with.

Let us call it root level resolution where we change the mindset of the people and make everyone grow vegetables, fruits etc.

We are not far away from this. we have to just go back to our own culture but adapt to modern developments.

In the field of horticulture , first thing government can do to make aware urban people regarding imortance of horticulture cultivation.
These area should not be restricted to only farmers and rural peoples.
Utilisation of mobile technology and e-mail can be helpful.
Promote urban people to make career in horiculture business.
Make single window for promotion of horticulture business.

There is are schemes by many state also by central govt. to make bunds on streams / rivers.

Focused initiative in co-ordination with minor irrigation department so as to focused horticulture initiatives can be taken. This I believe would increase effect of horticulture initiatives.

Thanks and Regards

As a master in agroecologist I would like to suggest few steps

1) Introduction of permaculture with rural community gardening especially in the villages basically on common grasslands. Profitability in community can also be gained by selling the commodities in the near by towns
2) Land reclamation projects should be introduced in planning as it is important for the government to bring more land under cultivation especially in dry land areas where some crops like grapes, pomegranate can be grown with fine irrigation systems
3) Top to bottom approach in horticulture production where coordination of customer demands and farmers supply can be meet with market research and projects to develop unique whole fruit supply chain from good and nutritious fruit varieties to consumer processed food purchase

Thanks

Dear sir,

Its very important to make govt schemes effective as
presently many GOI schemes are running in India but implementation is too week.
similar case in NHM
in our district Horticulture Inspector cheats farmer, in some way or the other ....

we poor farmer have to give some proportion of our benefits to district Horticulture Inspector as the benefit is through them.
