Sr. No. Activity/Technology Comments
1 Selection of Farmers Selection of Farmers by Agriculture Asst, Promoted group farming approach and groups were registered under ATMA agency
2 Farmers Training (Before Sowing) Yes. Date of training: 28/01/2012
3 Seed Distribution 31/01/3013
3 Seed Treatment Especially seed treatment of Rhizobium, Tricoderma, PSB, Bavistinwas used in powder form. Due to seed treatment the emergence capacity of seed is increased. Incidence of wilting is comparatively less.
4 Sowing Date 1-20 Feb 2013.
Block level officers and Agri Marketing Expert, BTM and SMS (ATMA) remained present on some plots for guiding farmers on sowing activity. It was insured that sowing on right time, right spacing. The sowing distance in plot is 30x15-20 cm in each plot of Groundnut plot.
5 Critical Inputs G’nut seed 40 Kg., Fertilizers-SSP, Urea (Each 50 Kg Bag),Multi-micronutrient 10 Kg., Seed Treatment material Like Rhizobium, PSB, Tricoderma, Bavistin etc. Diamethoate500ml. and Sulpher 10 Kg. Bag.
6 Irrigation facilities Yes. Use of sprinkler irrigation instead of flood irrigation is beneficial to farmers. This method of irrigation has saved 30-40% of water and increased the yield.
 
7 Sowing Method By drilling method.
 
8 Other practices Earthing up, and scrolling of drum in Groundnut before peg stage is effective in groundnut.
9 Market Linkages Farmers aggregated their produce and sold it to local trader after they received an advice on when to sell from MACP Wardha.

Practices followed in Groundnut:

  • Theearthing up is the important practice followed in groundnut cultivation. It increases the pod percentage and pegging percentage of groundnut. Also the Gypsum application plays important role in groundnut cultivation it increases the oil percentage of groundnut. Also scrolling of drum in groundnut plot increased the yield of groundnut.
  • These practices told to farmers by Dr. Nemade Sir in his speech in training programme which was conducted in FIAC Hall, Seloo. 
  • Farm field schools were organized to solve the farmer’s problems and difficulties for adoption of new technologies for increasing production and productivity.
