Rice FLds (2012-13)

The goal of increasing the rice productivity and production has been planned and achieved by the government with the implementation of several schemes at micro and macro levels. One of such endeavours is organizing Frontline Demonstrations. It is an opportunity for the scientists to demonstrate their technologies with full package on farmer’s fields which creates a confidence in the minds of farmers about the technologies. The proven technologies could be tested for their adaptability and adoptability on the farmer’s fields through the successful conduct of a total of 572 FLDs. A comprehensive blend of new and improved varieties, hybrids and various other management technologies were demonstrated in 14 States and five ecosystems of the country.

E-Learning (Moodle)

Welcome to the exciting world of e-learning!
We provide learning opportunities for extension officers and researchers working in Indian rice sector. Our aim is to provide learning experiences, without sounding too technical.
    With a view to bringing about knowledge based sustainable rice development, DRR has undertaken an institutional project on Applications of E-Learning in Agriculture: Designing an ODL Learning Content Management System (LCMS) for Rice Technologies. Final product of this project is an e-learning platform namely LEARNRICE.
    The present project is an initiative to gear up with the new technological and content needs of the rice sector near future. The ODL Learning Content Management System (LCMS) for Rice Technologies in place will help enhancing the online and offline training opportunities for the farmers, extension workers, development departments, NGOs and other key actors in large-scale adoption of improved rice technologies and knowledge across the country.  This will help in linking the effective learning with the immediate working conditions of the farmers and other rice workers.  Supporting immediate application of the learning in local situation will be an important outcome of the project.  It is expected that such an innovative extension approach using Open and Distance Learning methods will enhance the access to improved rice knowledge and information across the country, contributing to the agricultural development.  This endeavour will also help opening up new vistas in the distance learning and capacity building in the agriculture sector, a sector on which 65% Indian population depends for its livelihood.

Trade KnowHow

Trade KnowHow

Rice is one of the largest agricultural export items from India. A decade ago, India used to export only Basmati rice. Non-Basmati rice has also become a major item for export, registering a steady upwards trend in recent years, but, in monetary terms, the basmati varieties bring in more foreign exchange than non-basmati varieties of rice. A tremendous demand for basmati rice in the international markets has seen the country's basmati rice exports increased from about USD 470 million in 2000-2001 to about USD 1900 million during 2008-09. In aggregate terms, though rice exports have increased in value terms, it has decreased in terms of proportion. India is facing stiff competition in the world market for export of rice. Thailand, the world class largest rice exporter captures almost 35.39 percent and Vietnam is the world's second largest supplier of rice as compared to 15.68 percent of India.
 
This brings forth one of the major cause of concern regarding the rice export that despite India being one of the largest producers of rice and exporting nearly two third of basmati rice , presence of Indian rice is meagre in the international market. Since rice constitutes a considerable share in the national exports in general and in agricultural exports in particular keeping in view the importance of rice in the export of the national items, efforts are required to be made to increase the export of rice for the development of the nation. There is a good scope for India to take advantage of the new trade opportunities for sustaining the export of rice. Rice trade and Market Information for Service Information System of Rice Knowledge Management Portal therefore highlight most of the pertinent marketing and trade related issues.
 
In order to leverage the production advantage of rice in India, there is a need to provide continuous updating of data on market information, market access, procedures etc, which can be utilized in the identification of the right product market mix essential to reflect these production advantages in the form of enhanced presence in the International market.
 
This trade portal will act as a readymade solution towards solving domestic marketing as well as international trade issues. It would be helpful to all the stakeholders i.e farmers, processors, exporters in India as well as importers in the foreign markets.
