Pre Event Description :
KVK has planned Front Line Demonstrations on STCR for Fingermillet crop. KVK has collected and tested the soils, accordingly recommendations have been given. The inputs and pre-seasonal training has been arranged for the farmers.
Image: Nashik ranks first in Maharashtra w.r.t. area and production of Finger millet. The area under the crop is decreasing day by day. This is due to low yields and availability of alternative options. KVK noticed that the finger millet farmers do not apply any fertilizer to the crop. This is the major productivity constraint in this crop. KVK planned STCR for Finger Millet crop. Accordingly, the soil samples were collected and tested in the lab. On the basis of nutrient status available in the soil and crop requirement, fertilizers were recommended and provided to the farmers. The pre-seasonal training was organized for the farmers. During the training the issues i.e. importance of the crop, nutrient requirement of the crop, its benefits, schedule of fertilizer application were addressed.
