ConceptDevelopment  and Promotion of functional Model of Participatory Seed Production2008–


To ensure quality seed availability of farmers preferred variety(s) at village level. Functional model has been developed with active involvement, cooperation, collaboration and contribution of farmers, Seed Producing Agencies (NSC, SSFCI), Seed Certification Agencies, local traders, private dealers, local panchayat. Developed functional model has been replicated  through creation of registered Farmers Associations viz; Beej Vikas Sewa Samiti in Barahpur and Kisan Sewa Samiti in Kuitkheda district Kanpur Dehat for promotion of formal and informal seed system in Kanpur Dehat districts. Each association has more than 50 active members. 600 quintals seeds of Pigeonpea and Chickpea are being produced by each association.
Technology disseminatedNational Initiative on Fodder Technology Demonstration: A giant stride towards self-sufficiency2012 -2015Increase fodder availability in the villages of district Sitapur through development of IFS modules. Developed seed and planting material bank of fodder & forages for catering the requirements of their vicinity at village and KVK level.
Technology disseminatedCrop based advisory to farmers of district Sitapur through mobile sms (text) via mKisan portal2012 -2015Provide crop based advisory through mobile text messages  (1,020 no.) to farmers (7,13,154) of district Sitapur via mKisanportal
Technology disseminatedIntroduction of pigeonpea var. Narendra Arhar 12012 -2015To empower farmers in production of pigeon pea seed, the Krishi Vigyan Kendra-II, Sitapur conducted a Frontline demonstrations in 04 villages of district Sitapur on 2.0 ha area of farmer’s fields during 2012-13. During formal and informal meetings with farmers in the target villages where rice-wheat was the predominant cropping system. Provided on-off campus training on improved pulse production and value addition of pulses in sustainable crop production to Farmers. More than 100 ha area covered during last two years by this variety in the district. Now farmers sown pigeonpea (var. Narendra Arhar 1) on ridge & furrow methods and get 15-20 % more yield as compared to traditional methods.
