IV. Name of the programme: (DBT Sponsored)
“Establishment of Biotech-KISAN Hub at ICAR - National Institute of Biotic Stress Management, Raipur” (2020-22)
Objectives of Biotech-KISAN:
- Linking available science and technology to the farm by first understanding the problem of the local farmer and provide solutions to those problems.
- The working together, in close conjunction, of scientists and farmers is the only way to improve the working conditions of small and marginal farmers.
- This programme aims to work with small and marginal farmers especially the woman farmer for better agriculture productivity through scientific intervention and evolving best farming practices in the Indian context.
- To identify and integrate economically viable and socially compatible technological options as adoptable models for different agro-ecological situations.
- To enhance farmer-scientist interface, enrich knowledge and facilitate continued feedback.
- To develop modules for farm women to address drudgery reduction, income enhancement and livelihood security.
- To study performance of technologies and perception of the farmers about agriculture as a profession in the rural settings.
- To build network of linkages of organizations around the farm households for improving access to information, technology, input and market.
