Nabard aid for paddy

Jamshedpur, June 22: The National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (Nabard) has decided to initiate steps to ensure better production of rice in Jharkhand through implementation of the system of rice intensification (SRI) in villages.

It has decided to rope in NGOs for starting the project across the state.

At present, the state has a paddy yield of about 1.5 tonne per hectare per season, which can be doubled with the help of the SRI method. Nabard also has plans to increase the vegetable cultivation output with better irrigation methods.

It will also organise a workshop for NGOs to discuss ways to implement the projects.
