Extension Reforms

The need for reforms in Agricultural Extension has been explicitly raised in the National Agriculture Policy; the report of Expenditure Reforms Commission, as well as, the Tenth Plan Approach paper. Keeping the recommendations of these policy initiatives in view, and to provide policy directives for extension reforms, a broad Policy Framework for Agricultural Extension (PFAE) has been developed by the Ministry of Agriculture. There are five major guiding elements of the Policy Framework. The scheme “Support to State Extension Programmes for Extension Reforms” is the main scheme to operationalize agricultural extension reforms across the country.

Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana (RKVY)

Economic reforms initiated since 1991 have put the Indian economy on a higher growth trajectory. Annual growth rate in the total Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has accelerated from below 6 per cent during the initial years of reforms to more than 8 per cent in recent years. The Planning Commission in its approach paper to the Eleventh Five-Year-plan has stated that 9 per cent growth rate in GDP would be feasible during the Eleventh Plan period. However, Agriculture, that accounted for more than 30 per cent of total GDP at the beginning of reforms, failed to maintain its pre-reform growth. On the contrary, it witnessed a sharp deceleration in growth after the mid-1990s. This happened despite the fact that agricultural productivity in most of the states was quite low as it were, and the potential for the growth of agriculture was high.

Mukhya Mantri Kisan Khushali Yojana (MMKKY)

Agriculture in the State is mainly rainfed, targeting production for subsistence. The major crops being paddy, maize, finger millets, black gram, groundnut, niger during kharif and wheat during rabi. Even though rainfed rice yields are low (less than 1 ton / ha.), and unstable, rice is being cultivated to meet the food demands of small, and marginal farmers who possess 75% of total farm holdings. Small and marginal landholders face different types of problems than large farmers. They have to be dependent on farming for their household needs and majority of these farmers are resource constrained, economically poor and have low level of education.
