How Assam’s fallow season can be transformed into a season of productivity

Share this to :

Agriculture in Assam is characterized by low productivity because of frequent floods, drought, lack of irrigation facilities during the dry season, use of low-quality seed, limited agricultural mechanization, and the knowledge gap among stakeholders. However, it is possible to achieve double or triple cropping in the state with meticulous planning and the development and promotion of appropriate and farmer-friendly interventions for the rice-fallow areas. Utilizing the rice-fallow areas efficiently could accelerate the growth of agricultural production, generate additional income, and improve the livelihood security of small and marginal farmers.
