Mechanization

Introduction, popularization and utilization of improved farm power and specialized implements are important components for boosting agriculture production. As the state does not possess Agro industries, either undertaken by the Government or private, it is necessary to procure any type of farm machineries from other states. To meet the demand of farm implements by the farmers in the state, it is necessary to procure the machineries from approved and recommended firms under Macro-Management (CSS) ‘Promotion of Farm Mechanisation’. The present availability of farm powers in the state is only 0.47 KW/ha which is much below national level. The scheme is expected to increase work efficiency and productivity of the farmers. Different kinds of Machineries like Water Pump Sets, Power Weeder, Sprayers etc. and various other power driven equipments for tractor and power tillers etc. are provided to the farmers with permissible rates of subsidy as per GOI norms as follows :-
