Why 4% agri growth is a challenge 20.8.2018 DNA: Top News
After two successive droughts in 2014 and 2015 and devastating floods in parts of India this year, the government has woken up to farm distress and recently announced some steps to alleviate the suffering of farmers, although pundits feel they are very little and too late. The government has promised to give top priority to agriculture and provide a higher minimum support price (MSP) to several crops. Besides, the government is also looking at forming a new agri export policy. However, farmers appear to be not satisfied with these announcements as farm distress has worsened during the last four-and-a-half years. Chief adviser to the consortium of Indian Farmers' Association P Chengal Reddy said the MSP announced by the government is too little and too late. The cost plus 50% recommended by the Swaminathan Committee should have been implemented in 2014. It has not happened even now. He, however, felt the recent heavy rains will not severely impact farm output this year but would help in overcoming ...

The CM also directed the officials to take necessary actions in the affected areas. He also asked to make water available in the Kutch region, where less rainfall has been recorded.

Friday's rain pours hope for Gujarat farmers 18.8.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The rains on Friday poured a major relief for farmers, especially those sowing kharif across Gujarat. The rains that lashed the state after 21 days also brought fresh water into the dams at the catchment areas in Narmada and Tapi rivers. According to a recent weekly report of the state agriculture department, the state witnessed sowing of 72.28 lakh hectare, which is about 84% of the seasonal average of over 85 lakh hectare. However, it does not take care of sowing damaged to due flooding and shortage of water. Whatever was left was also at a risk of damage. Reports of damage to cotton in Saurashtra region and groundnut in north Gujarat have started pouring in due to inadequate rains. Nikul Patel of Dadhaliya – Umedpur village of Arvalli district said that the plants of groundnut are turning yellowish. Moreover, sowing was also infected by 'Dor' insects, which eats away the roots of the crop. Farmers are trying to save the crop by spraying more insecticides. "There was a fear that about 50% of the sowing ...

Gujarat: Equipment quality, enrolling farmers risks for KUSUM scheme 14.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Quality of solar pumps and getting farmers on board are the two key risks for the success of the net-metered solar pumps, according to an analysis by Greenpeace India, Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) and IWMI-Tata Water Policy Program. The analysis, which was released at a conference earlier this week, showed that India could surpass its solar power target of 100 GW by 2022 if solar pumps were to replace traditional water pumps in farms. It said that while the 60 GW target for large-scale solar power projects is on track, the 40 GW target for roof-top solar is still to gather momentum, and as of March, only 2.4 GW roof-top capacity had been installed. While talking about several benefits the solar pumps could provide, the analysis identified the quality of solar pumps and maintenance as a key potential risk for the success of net-metered solar pumps. Incidentally, the central government had recently launched KUSUM (Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthan Mahaabhiyan) scheme to promote ...
