Kisan Mela under Jal Sakti Abhiyan Conducted at KVK Chandel



Chandel, 5th September, 2019: Kisan Mela under Jal Sakti Abhiyan sponsored by Scheduled Tribe Component  (formerly TSP) was organized by KVK, Chandel today at KVK Chandel. Shri Krishna Kumar, IAS, Deputy Commisioner, Chandel District, Dr. N. Prakash, Jt. Director, ICAR Research Complex for NEH Region, Manipur Centre, Lamphelpat and Dr. Deepak Singh, Sr. Scientist & Head, KVK Chandel were the presidium members. While inaugurating the Kisan Mela, the Chief Guest of the function, Shri Krishna Kumar, Deputy Commissioner, Chandel told that water is a precious resource not to be taken for granted otherwise we’d be regretful in front of the next generation. The Jal Shakti Abhiyan is time-bound water saving campaign which is an eye-opener for the public. The water level of Chakpi river is decreasing year by year and the main reason is dwindling forest cover. He stressed the people of Chandel to practice water re-use and to adopt rainwater harvesting. He motivated the farmers to practice double-cropping instead of mono-cropping.

The Guest of honour of the function, Dr. Narendra Prakash, Joint Director, motivated the farmers to get inspiration from the ancient integrated farming system of Panikheti, practised in Arunachal Pradesh and Zabo system of Nagaland. The present year has witnessed deficit in rainfall. So in the present context, rice cultivation alone cannot assure success for farmers. A minimum of 33 % forest cover is needed to assure ecological balance in the state. Farmers need to adopt smart farming with drought-resistant or less-water consuming crop varieties. The  District Agriculture Officer, Chandel Smt Gladney Monsang informed in her speech that in the present drought-like situation, famine is very much inevitable and oilseeds, wheat, pea, gram, lentil etc are effective compensating crops. Water conservation is a habit to be inculcated by the general public.

The Senior Scientist & Head, KVK, Chandel urged the farmers of the district to make the maximum use of the water conservation campaign and to ensure proper crop productivity. During the programme, leaflets were also released for the farmers. Altogether 256 farmers from different blocks of Chandel District attended the programme. The Kisan Mela was also attended by staff of District Horticulture & Soil Conservation Department, PHED - Chandel and KVK Chandel.
