Detailed Narrative Description of Project:
The crop production activities are the prime occupation of the villagers of the Dhalia-Randia village. The major crops grown are aus rice, T. aman rice, boro rice, potato, black gram, mustard, chili, sugarcane, lentil, brinjal, banana, wheat, etc (SIF 1999). The development of technology for increasing productivity of crop requires clear understanding of the environment and their status of present production technology. The potentiality of intervention might be search from existing weakness of the production systems. Therefore, yield status of different crops under farmers’ management is important to improve the situation. The yield status of different crops was monitored by crop cutting experiment for further agronomic manipulation to increase productivity of the village. A crop cutting survey on different crops was made in the Dhalia-Randia village during July 2002 to June 2003. The crop cutting survey was done in different varieties of boro rice, aus rice and T. aman rice. The yields of potato (L), potato (M), lentil, brinjal, jute, banana, amaranth, mustard, lady’s finger, radish and wheat were estimated. Ten sample farmers were taken for each crop or variety. The sample area of crop cut was 1 sq m. in each replication for recording yield. Simple statistical procedures were followed for analyzing the data. The yield performance of ten varieties (three local and seven modern) of boro rice, two varieties of aus rice, four varieties of transplant aman rice, wheat, potato (local and modern), lentil, brinjal and chili was recorded.
