MINI MISSION-II OF TECHNOLOGY MISSION ON COTTON

The Mini Mission-II of Technology Mission on Cotton is a Centrally Sponsored Scheme which aims to increase production , productivity of cotton to meet domestic, export demands of the country and to bring reduction in cost of cultivation and pesticides consumption for enhancing the competitiveness in the international market. This scheme is implemented in the state since 2002-03.Most of the components implemented by the states are being funded on 75:25 basis by Govt. of India. and state. However, some of the components of this mission are also funded on 100% basis by GOI.

The programmes of the scheme are executed in accordance with the guidelines of Govt. of India for increasing the production and productivity of cotton crop in the state. For the year 2012-13, a target of 6.00 lakh hect of area and 25.06 lakh bales of production with the average productivity of 750 kg. per hect was set. 6.14 lakh ha. area were covered under cotton crop out of this covered area, production of 25.28 lakh bales is expected with productivity of 700 kg/per hectare in lint form. To achieve this target, a Technical Programme of ` 96.00 lakh ( ` 85.00 GOI share + ` 11.00 State Share) was approved by the Govt. of India for implementing the programmes of Mission during 2012-13. An achievement of ` 81.50 lakh ( ` 73.48 lakh as CS + ` 7.12 as SS ) has been made as against the assigned target of ` 96.00 lakh up to Dec,2012 . Whereas, the Govt. of India is reducing the allocation under this scheme year over year. The detail of progress report in given hereunder:-

Technical Programme of New State Plan Scheme for Promotion of Cotton Cultivation in Haryana State for the Year 201213

 

The sowing of cotton crop in the state will be on peak during the month of May. The New State Plan Scheme namely Scheme for Promotion of Cotton Cultivation in Haryana State for the year 2012-13 is being launched in order to supplement / continue the left out programmes / components of the Centrally Sponsored Mini Mission II of Technology Mission on Cotton during the current year with financial outlay of ` 400.00. The Action Plan for the proposed programmes will be as under : -

Area and Production Target

The objective of scheme is to keep the tempo of increasing production and productivity of cotton in the state during the year 2012-13. The scheme will be implemented in all the cotton growing districts of state namely Hisar, Fatehabad, Sirsa, Jind, Bhiwani, Rohtak, Jhajjar, Rewari, Mohindergarh, Sonipat and Kaithal. Under this Scheme Distribution of Certified Seeds, Production of Certified and Foundation Seeds, Farmers Trainings, Supply of Manually & Battery Operated and Tractor Mounted Spray Pumps, Front Line Demonstration on specific Production Technology, Drip Irrigation system in Cotton, Exposure Visit of farmers, Season Long Training of Facilitators (TOF) etc. components will be implemented

Keeping in view the achievement of area, Av. Yield and production of cotton crop during previous years and its future prospects, it has been planned to cover 6.00 lakh hect. area under this crop in the state during 2012-13. A production target of 26.47 lakh bales with a productivity of 750 kg / hect. has been fixed. The district wise operational target of area, Av. Yield and production of Cotton crop for the year 2012-13 is given at Annexure-I

 

I. Distribution of Certified Seed : - ` 5 Lacs

In order to popularize the use of certified seeds of new varieties (Both hybrids and non-hybrids), assistance will be provided @ 50% of market price on distribution of certified seeds of cotton varieties / hybrid notified during the last 15 years. The assistance will be available on the quantity of seed sold by HSDC, NSC, SFCI, CCS HAU, KRIBHCO, IFFCO etc. In this regard the publicity will have to be made at large by the respective DDA, so that maximum benefit could be availed by the farmers. Therefore, regular monitoring and vigilance is required to be taken by DDAs for ensuring the smooth availability and distribution of quality seeds during the season. The target will be as per the stocking plan / sale of these agencies. An assistance of ` 5.00 lakh have been kept under this component. The seed supplying agencies will submit the claim bills to the respective DDAs by middle of June, 2012 for reimbursement. DDAs will verify and further submit the claim bills to JDA Cotton Sirsa for making the payment of seed to the concerned Seed Supplying Agencies by the end of June 2012, so that the financial target could be achieved in first quarter.

II. Production of Foundation Seed: ` 2.00 Lakh

Foundation seed will be produced by HSDC at HLRDC Farm and CCS HAU Hisar farm from breeder seed to meet out the requirement of foundation seed for multiplying the certified seed during Kharif 2013. An assistance of Rs. 2.00 Lakh has been kept under this component i.e. @ 50% cost limited to Rs. 50/- per kg. The HSDC will submit claim bills to JDA (Cotton) Sirsa by end of December 2012.
