Weather characterization:

  • Analysed district wise Agro climatic onset of different districts of Uttar Pradesh. Kashganj observed late onset of 6 days, Badaun 7 days, Etah, Bareilly, Mahoba 8 days, Shajhanpur, and Farrukhabad 10 days, Sitapur and Jalaun 11 days, Hapur and Fatehpur 12 days from start. The rest of the district received 15-29 days late agro climatic onset from the starting date.
  • In Kanpur region, out of the 49 years, no drought was occurred in 41 years (84% ), moderate drought in 7 year (14%) and severe drought in 1 year (2% ) was noticed during 1971 to 2019.
  • In Kanpur region, out of 49 years, 31 years were observed as agriculture drought year during kharif season. Agriculture drought was prolonged up to 12 meteorological weeks from 31 to 42 in 1979, while, rainfall was discontinued during 13 weeks in Kharif season of the year 1974 and 2015.
  • The deviation of annual rainfall was seen in decreasing trend from the normal rainfall during the decade 2001-2010 and 2011-2019 whereas, the initial decade 1971-1980, 1981-1990 and 1991-2000 observed higher decadal rainfall over normal. The annual decadal rainfall trend was observed in descending order from higher to lower. The data also revealed that decadal winter season rainfall showed erratic pattern, whereas, rainfall during Summer season is in increasing pattern from initial decade 1971-1980 to 2011-2019.
  • Decadal South-west and Post monsoon rainfall decreased continuously from initial to last decade. This showed that both South-west and post monsoon rainfall shifted towards summer and winter season rainfall.

Rice

  • Timely planted (02 July) crop when temperature and rainfall during planting, PI and milking period was estimated 31.7,34.5 and 34.80C (Tmax.), 25.7, 23.3 and 21.0 0C (Tmin.) and 50.3, 138.8 and 51.2mm ( RF) at respective stages proved to be optimum and produces the highest grain (43.5 q/ha), straw yield (64.2 q/ha) and harvest index (40.3 %).Hence 02 July transplanting of rice was significantly superior as compared to other two dates of planting viz; 12 July and 22 July.
  • Among the varieties NDR-359 gave 18.3 %, 12.3% and 11.5 % higher grain yield as compared to CSR-27, Sarjoo-52, and Swarna, respectively. The grain yield gradually decreased by 10 days delayed over 02 July, was recorded 11.1% and 31.0 % yield.
  • It can say that first week of July is better(normal date of planting) for plantation of paddy and NDR -359 is superior amog the four tested varieties for Central part of U.P.

Maize

  • The highest maize seed yield (62.6 q/ha) was obtained in 19th June early sowing as compared to 29th June (57.6 q/ha) and 09th July (49.4 q/ha) sowing. The optimum maximum and minimum temperature at different phonological stages was received in early sown crop.
  • The higher heat unit i.e. 156.3, 646.0,103.9, and 233.70Cdays was recorded during emergence, knee high, 50% silking and dough stages, respectively, in timely sown crop as compared to subsequent 10 day delayed sowing.

Wheat

  • The analysis of five year weather and crop data revealed that the higher maximum and minimum temperature during vegetative stage of wheat varieties (HD-2967, HD-2733, K-307 and K-9107) showed significant positive correlation (R2 = 0.31 & 0.028, respectively) while negative Correlation was found when temperature (Max.& Min.) was higher during reproductive stage (R2 = 0.53 & 0.81).
  • At vegetative stage, unit increase in maximum temperature enhanced wheat yield by 0.25 t./ha while unit increase in minimum temperature decreased the wheat yield by 0.14 t./ha.
  • Unit increase in maximum and minimum temperature during reproductive stage decreased wheat yield by 0.22 and 0.34 t./ha, respectively.

GKMS Project

  • Under the Gramin Krishi Mausam Sewa project (GKMS) is issuing crop and location specific weather based agro advisories for the benefit of farming community on every Tuesday and Friday along with occurrence of extreme weather events. Farmers can register through the website of Agrimet Division (www.imdagrimet.gov.in) to utilize these services by visiting the following link:
    http://imdagrimet.gov.in/farmer/FarmerRegistrationFrontpage/welcome.php
  • District level weather forecast for next 5-days in respect of Rainfall, maximum temperature, minimum temperature, wind speed, wind direction, relative humidity and clouds, weekly cumulative rainfall and Crop specific advisories are provided to farmers.
  • We are continuously in providing crop specific advisories to the farmers through different print/visual/Radio/ IT based media including short message service (SMS) and Interactive Voice Response Service (IVRS) facilitating for appropriate field level actions.
  • Weather forecast based agromet advisories are disseminated through MKisan portal launched by Ministry of Agriculture and also under public private partner. More than 576708 farmers of 17th districts of central Uttar Pradesh have been farmer registered in mKisan Portal and they are regularly receiving text and voice SMS through mKisan Portal.
  • The weather based agromet advisories helped in increasing yield and controlling disease and pest infestation of crops.
  • Weather based agromet advisories are disseminated through Meghdoot app launched by Ministry of earth Science, IMD and ICAR and also under public private partner.
  • The registered farmers receiving SMS through the mKisan portal every Tuesday & Friday. Total five SMS is sent per month. The total 576708 farmer getting advantage of valuable weather based information for conducting further agronomical practices by SMS.
  • The meghdoot app helps farmers to manage crops & livestock better because weather based agromet advisory provided on app is a quick way to disseminate the forecast based agriculture.
  • Agromet advisory bulletin of District level and block level are uploading to the site of IMD http://agromet.imd.gov.in/ and http://www.imdagrimet.gov.in/ every Tuesday and Friday.
  • Daily weather data is being updated on this site http://www.imdagrimet.gov.in/ everyday.
  • Agromet advisory bulletin of District level and block level are uploading to the mail i.e. agrimet_pune@yahoo.com, agrimet_information@yahoo.com, lata.vishnoi@gmail.com.
  • Weather data is sent to all Newspaper Journalist through whats app group of agrometeorology “CSA Weather Information”.
  • Farmers also get weather information details by phone & news paper.
  • Farmers feedback is also been collected through telephonic and whatsapp message about the profit/loss occurred due to agromet advisory bulletin.

FASAL Project

Departmental Achievements

Agronomy has contributed significantly in developing improved agro-techniques and production technologies as well as furtherance of knowledge. The most important achievements are briefly summarized below :

(A) Low cost/ Non monetary input technologies :

  • In border method of sowing every 4th row is kept unseeded and unfertilized providing saving of 25% costly inputs like seed, fertilizers and labours and harvest normal yield. It also provides convenience in intercultural operations, rouging of off-type plants in seed crops, plant protections and irrigation.
  • Thinning and topping in mustard increases their yields by 40-50%.
  • Topping in April sown early pigeon pea increases yield to the extent of 15-20%.
  • Sowing of wheat crop into South to North direction increases the yield by 1.5 to 2.0 q/ha in comparison to sowing in East to West direction except sugarcane.
  • Use of sprouted seeds of wheat under late sown conditions has been found to enhance the germination and thereby increases yield.
  • Sowing of early pigeon pea in the month of April (first fortnight) under irrigated conditions increases yield by 30-50% than July sowing.

(B) Profitable cropping/ Farming systems :

  • In rice- wheat cropping system under integrated nutrient management, application of 50% N through FYM and remaining 50% N+ full recommended P2O5 and K2O through chemical fertilizers in rice and recommended dose of 100% N + P2O5 + K2O through chemical fertilizers in wheat maximizes the yield and sustains the soil health for longer period.
  • Under crop diversification and cropping intensity experiments, maize potato- onion and maize garlic moong cropping systems are productive and remunerative.
  • Hybrid rice-wheat- moong cropping system is suitable for sustaining soil health and production in place of rice-wheat system.
  • Under precision farming approach (site specific nutrient management – SSNM), application of fertilizer in hybrid rice- wheat cropping system @150:30:120:50:40 kg N,P,K,S, Zn/ha to rice and 150:30:120 kg N,P,K/ha to wheat gives maximum yield and net monitory return.
  • An on station integrated farming system model has been established in this department, initially three components viz., crop production, dairy and horticulture units are running in one hectare of land. During the year 2015-16 total net income of Rs 1,30,342.00 was obtained from IFS model. Out of this Rs 56,642.00 from crop production Rs 72,770.00 from dairy
    (1 cow+ 1 buffalo) and Rs 930.00 from horticulture units were fetched.
  • Under nitrogen scheduling experiment, baby corn fertilized with 150 Kg N/ha in 3 equal splits at basal, knee high at pre-taselling stages yields higher marketable corn with maximum net return in winter season.
  • Sesame- pea cropping system is a profitable cropping system for the farmers of Banda and Kaushambi.
  • Balance nutrition @ 120 kg N, 60 kg P2O5, 40 kg K2O and 25 kg zinc sulphate/ha in rice wheat cropping system provides maximum system production and net monitory return under the agro-ecological conditions of Banda and Kushambi districts.
  • 60 kg P2O5 in April sown early pigeon pea + green gram (1:3) is optimum dose to meet out the Phosphorus requirement of the system.

(C ) Intercropping system :

  • Intercropping of mustard/ dwarf wheat/ potato coriander with autumn planted cane has been tested. These intercropping systems fetched maximum profit without damaging sugarcane crop.
  • Planting of sugarcane by border ridge technique rows 60 cm apart and intercropping of mustard or potato gives 15% higher yield of potato or mustard without any reduction in the stalk yield of cane.
  • Wheat, barley, mustard and late sown wheat exerts adverse effect on cane if grown in intercropping system.
  • Intercropping of green gram / black gram / cowpea in spring planted cane increases 15% yield of intercrop.
  • Intercropping of Rabi crops like cereals (wheat, barley, oats), oilseeds (mustard and linseed), pulses (chickpea, field pea, dwarf pea, lentil and French bean), vegetables (cole crops, tomato, radish, carrot, lettuce), spices (Coriander, Methi, Aniseed, Nigella, Ajwain) tobacco etc. with potato through border ridge technique are productive and profitable.
  • Chickpea + coriander intercropping system reduces the incidence of pod borer and wilt by about 40% in chickpea crop.
  • Intercropping of linseed with chickpea reduces the infection of wilt in chickpea.

(D) Multiple cropping :

Following multiple and relay crop sequence have been recommended to the cultivators.

  • Maize – early potato – Wheat – mungbean
  • Maize – toria – Onion
  • Paddy – Wheat – Fodder – (Bajra and Cowpea)
  • Paddy – Mustard – Fodder – (Bajra and Cowpea)
  • Paddy – Chickpea – Fodder – (Bajra and Cowpea)
  • Paddy – Pea – Fodder – (Bajra and Cowpea)
  • Chari – Bajra – Berseem + Japani Rai – Maize + Cowpea
  • Chari – Berseem + Japani Sarson – Bajra + Cowpea
  • Paddy – Toria – Cheena – Mungbean
  • Maize+Blackgram-Potato-Onion
  • Maize–Garlic-Green gram (G+R)

(D) Water management

  • Pea + mustard, pea, lentil and mustard crops are remunerative when only one irrigation as pre sowing irrigation is available.
  • Chickpea crop is more remunerative when two irrigations including pre- sowing irrigation is available.
  • Application of 2 irrigations at 15 cm CPE is optimum for obtaining economical yield with chickpea + linseed intercropping system.
  • Potato crop gives normal yield when irrigated in alternate trenches. This practice covers 80% additional area with the same amount of water.
  • In Kharif pulses, two irrigations at flower initiation and pod filling stages are optimum, if rain water is not available.
  • Groundnut gives maximum yield with 2 irrigations one at pegging and second at pod filling stage, if the rain water is not available.
  • Cultivation of sorghum (Fodder) and pearl millet are better under late onset of monsoon.
  • In rice-wheat sequence, application of pyrite @ 6q/ha is effective in case of brackish water irrigation.
  • Two irrigations at flowering and pod filling stages are sufficient for the cultivation of Toria (Var. Bhawani) under central plain zone of Uttar Pradesh.
  • Straw mulching in potato saves the irrigation by 50% owning to increase in interval of irrigation from 10 days to 20 days thereby reducing number of irrigations from 8 to 4.
