Abstract:

Malda KVK has started it activities on NICRA (National Innovations on Climate Resilient Agriculture) from 2010-11. Under Manikchak block, 6 villages were purposively selected for implementation of the NICRA project based on the effect of flood in the area. A study was undertaken to assess the impact of different climate resilient technologies based on production, income and BC ratio. Perceived constraints were also assessed in implementation of these climate resilient technologies by the farmers in adopted villages in terms of technical constraints, economic constraints, storage and marketing constraints and general constraints. The study shows that all the major climate resilient technologies have considerable impact in the livelihood of the farmers in flood affected NICRA adopted villages. Constraints perceived by the farmers were high disease incidence of plants and animal in respect to technical constraints. Lack of credit facility in the area was the major constraints perceived by the farmers in respect to economic constraints. Lack of co-operative marketing system was the major constraints perceived by the farmers in respect to storage and marketing constraints and unavailability of agricultural labour was the major constraints perceived by the farmers in respect to general constraints. It is still early to predict the impact of these climate resilient technologies to their livelihood but the impact of these technologies might be more visible if we can minimize the constraints perceived by the farmers.
