University Extension Block Programme (UEBP)

The University Extension Block Programme is operating in two villages namely Ratagada and Panchupal of Baranga block under Cuttack district since 2017-18. The farming situation of two villages are completely different. The village Ratagada is fully irrigated where as the village Panchupal is located in rain fed condition. The cropping pattern and need of the farmers are also different. Since operation of the UEBP, the activities have been chalked out as per the need and aspirations of the farmers. Importance has been given to replace the local varieties with OUAT, ICAR-NRRI and ICAR-IIHR varieties in different crops.

During 2019-20, the following activities were taken up which were appreciated by the farmers of the locality due change in yield and income.

  1. Demonstration

There were 12 demonstrations were conducted in which 120 numbers of farmers participated as follows:

  1. Demonstration on Rice Variety- Hasanta released by OUAT.
  2. Demonstration on Rice Variety- CR1009 Sub-1 released by ICAR-NRRI
  3. Demonstration on Chilli variety Arka Haritha released by ICAR-IIHR
  4. Demonstration on French Bean variety Arka Saratha released by ICAR-IIHR
  5. Demonstration on Tomato variety Arka Rakshak released by ICAR-IIHR

4.         Success stories, location specific technology and farm innovation on agriculture & allied field from different districts through KVKs are documented and shared through various channels including web pages of OUAT & ICAR, youtube, whattsApp group etc. 

D. Information and communication centre: 

The Information Section, presently renamed as Information and Communication Centre was established in the year 1962. The main functions of this center is to Processing of Agricultural Research Information obtained from University Research Organizations, other research institution, Production of audio-visual aids for education and training of the target audience, dissemination of latest scientific agricultural technology by liaisoning with mass media like All India Radio, Doordarshan and News Papers and arrangement of scientific radio talks and programmes in Doordarshan, Organisation of training for target groups in agril. and allied fields sponsored by Government of India, State Government and other agencies.

Publications of Magazines, newsletter etc: 

Four issues of the quarterly oriya farm magazine “Chasira Sansar” were published during the year. One special issue of the magazine was published on the occasion of University Foundation Day. Scientific articles on agriculture, horticulture, animal husbandry, agricultural engineering, pisciculture, community science, agro-forestry, success stories and rural development topics were published in these issues for the benefits of the farming communities and grass root level extension functionaries. The news letter of the University is published quarterly covering important activities, events and achievements, besides other printing works  e.g. single colour and multi-colour printing works of the University as well as its constituent faculties, colleges, schemes, projects and KVKs.

Flagship Programmes

 

Cluster Frontline Demonstration of Pulses and Oilseeds (CFLD):

 

Cluster frontline demonstration is a unique approach by the Indian Council of Agricultural Research on Oilseed and Pulse crops to provide a direct interface between scientists and farmers where farmers are guided by the KVK scientists during demonstrations in implementation of improved technologies like seed treatment, IPM, INM, land preparation etc . Demonstrated fields are regularly monitored by the scientists. Cluster Frontline Demonstration project started since 2015-16 under NFSM and NMOOP.

Objective:

The main objective of Cluster Front-Line Demonstrations is to demonstrate newly released crop production and protection technologies and its management practices in the farmers’ field under different agro-climatic regions and farming situations. While demonstrating the technologies in the farmers’ field, the scientist to study the factors contributing higher crop production, field constraints of production and thereby generate production data and feedback information. The field demonstrations conducted under the close supervision of scientists of the KVKs because the technologies are demonstrated for the first time by the scientists themselves before being fed into the main extension system of the State Department of Agriculture.

Salient features of CFLD:

  • Cluster Frontline Demonstrations are conducted under the close supervision of the scientists of the KVKs.
  • Only newly released technologies or those likely to be released in near future are selected for the Cluster Front-Line Demonstrations.
  • Only critical inputs are provided from the scheme budget, remaining inputs are supplied by the farmers themselves.
  • Cluster Front-Line Demonstrations are used as a source of generating data on factors contributing higher crop yields and constraints of production under various farming situations.

 

During 2019-20 an area of 2120 & 740 ha have been covered under cluster demonstration programmes on pulses and oilseeds, respectively by the KVKs.

 

Pulses Seed Hub

Pulses seed hub is operating in six KVKs viz. Bhadrak, Bargarh, Deogarh, Keonjhar, Kalahandi and Mayurbhanj-I. Certified seeds of pigeonpea, greengram, blackgram and chickpea seeds have been produced by different Pulses Seed Hubs in 371 ha.

 

Attracting Rural Youth in Agriculture (ARYA):

ARYA project is operating in KVK, Nayagarh from 2016-17 and during 2019-20 this project has been started in KVKs Puri, Ganjam-I and Sambalpur. Under this project rural youth has been trainined and basic support has been given on  Mushroom production, Backyard poultry rearing, Stunted fingerlings production, Honeybee cultivation etc.    The selected rural youths were also trained on Project formulation and marketing strategy. Exposer visit in the above enterprises for the participating rural youths have been conducted under ARYA.  Startup incentives were provided to the new participating rural youths and addon incentives were provided to the old participating rural youths during 2019-20. 

 

Center of Excellence

Centre of Excellence on horticultural activities is in operational at KVK, Keonjhar. 

 

National Innovations in Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA):

            NICRA activities have been taken up in five KVKs viz. Kendrapara, Kalahandi, Jharsuguda, Ganjam-I and Sonepur to enhance the resilience of agricultural production system to variability of climate. This project has been formulated to develop region specific improved technologies that would boost the resilience of agriculture to climate change. The activities of the project are focused on six modules like Natural Resource Management(NRM), Crop Production(CP), Livestock and Fisheries Production, Institutional Interventions, Capacity building and Extension activities. 

 

 

RESILIENCE Project

            Indo-Norwegian Consortium Project “Building Climate   Resilience of Indian Smallholders “RESILIENCE” is in operational at the Directorate of Extension Education, OUAT, Bhubaneswar since October, 2018 and to be continued up to September, 2022. The project’s objectives are (i) Assessment of biophysical and socioeconomic vulnerabilities w.r.t agriculture food security (ii) Mapping the agro-ecological zones, challenges and potentials in the project areas of Odisha, (iii) Identifying and implementing most suitable climate resilient/ CSA measures, (iv) Strengthening the value chains, promoting rural bio-economy and job creation in Odisha .This project is operational in the Rangeilunda & Surada Blocks of Ganjam distrct. Demonstrations of various climate resilient practices have been conducted at both the project sites including climate resilient varieties, crop diversification, INM, IPM, IWM, Kitchen Gardening, & Agro forestry. For the benefits of farmers two IFS units have also been constructed in the KVK Ganjam-I and Ganmjam-II campus. Village knowledge centre (VKC) has been established in the project village which acts as a Knowledge and information hub for the farmers.
