Abstract:

Madhya Pradesh is pre-dominated by the Tribal population. The differences in the tribal community, spread over in various parts of the state, is clearly seen not only on the basis of their heredity, lifestyle and cultural traditions, but also from their social, economic structure, religious beliefs and their language and speech. Due to the different linguistic, cultural and geographical environment, and its peculiar complications, the diverse tribal world of Madhya Pradesh has been largely cut-off from the mainstream of development. The population of Tribals in Madhya Pradesh is 122.33 lakh constituting 20.27% of the total population of Madhya Pradesh (603.85 Lakh), according to the 2001 census. There were 46 recognized Scheduled Tribes and three of them have been identified as "Special Primitive Tribal Groups" in the State. The main tribal groups in Madhya Pradesh are Gond, Bhil, Baiga, Korku, Bhadia, Halba, Kaul, Mariya, and Sahariya. Dhar, Jhabua , Mandla and Dindori districts have more than 50 percent tribal population.The Dindori district comes under Northern Hill region of Chattisgarh . Almost entire district is hilly with undulating topography having different types of soil with large number of small size holding below 2.0 ha. Baigachuck area of Dindori District is mostly dominated by the tribal population. The present pilot project designed on livelihood security of Baiga tribals residing at remote places of the district farming in survival oriented system for livelihood. The primary reports of survey indicated that seed was the most required material keeping this in mind. The project was launched so as to create awareness about seed, production of quality seed for continuous availability in years. The K.V.K. Dindori took up this exploratory programme with rainfed sujata wheat variety on field of 350 farmers in the season Rabi 2007-08.
