Achievements of Directorate of Biotechnology, 2013-14:

 

Distribution of Biotech Kit under State Plan Scheme, 2013-14:

                    Growing concern about the adverse effects of application of chemicals in the agriculture practices has compelled us to restore the environment for sustainable production that encourages the introduction of organic inputs in a comprehensive form of Biotech kit The process offers immense scope to small and marginal farmers and SHG groups in creating their own organic environment and project their farming land as a “hub of safe food production” It is considered necessary to promote and take this technologies to the door step of the farmers in every corner of the state for improvement of soil heath and to create a hazard free sustainable environment. The “Biotech Kit” consist of 18 different bioinputs including Micorhizal preparation N,P,K,S fixing biofertilizer, entomopathogenic biopesticides, neem & garlic based biopestisides, beneficial fungas to restrain plant diseases, lure to trap the pest and a sprayer.

     

     

This Directorate has all ready completed the distribution of Biotech kit among the 80 nos of small and Marginal farmers of Lakhsminagar & Saraspur GP under Kadamtala Block, Gamchakobra ADC Village under Lefunga Block, South Narayan pur Village under erstwhile Mohanpur (now Bamutia) Block during 2013 – 14. The same programme will be followed in the 2014 -15 financial year.
                       The Directorate of Biotechnology has given priority I. To reduce the use of chemical input in agriculture & to produce safe food and II. To conserve biodiversity and to reduce environmental pollution in the state. Keeping in view use of Biotech Kit has been developed for the small and marginal farmers and perhaps for the first time in the Eastern India.
