Pre Event Description :
Nashik district is characterized by agro climatic and socioeconomic diversities. These include wide range of soil types, topography, cropping patterns. It includes crops like paddy, pearl millet, jawar, cotton, maize, soybean, groundnut, etc. in kharif and gram, wheat in rabi. In the recent times, low economic returns in many major crops are attributed to low productivity and high cost of cultivations due to high Cost, time and drudgery, labor scarcity. This ultimately this undermines the economics of these crops. Remedies like, targeting the selective mechanization operations & service delivery would be appropriate strategy. Selection of technology, quality manufacturer & maintenance play vital role.
