Climate Resilient Technology - Implemention in the Project APART

Stress Tolerant Rice Varieties (STRVs)

Rice is mainly a rainfed crop in Assam where drought and flood events are very common features causing a big proportion of farmers to undergo distress every year. Therefore, high-yielding STRVs could be a boon for small and marginalized farmers of the state.

Solar Bubble Dryer (SBD)

Solar Bubble Dryer (SBD): has an inflated solar tunnel, 2 solar powered blowers and is used to dry paddy to optimum and uniform moisture levels at field level. The dryer comes in two capacities i.e. 0.5 t and 1 t. For one tonne capacity the dimensions are 25m length and 2m width.

Zero tillage, a climate resilient technology

The Zero tillage technique, a climate resilient technology, introduced in the Project through the technical support of the International Potato Centre (CIP) in potato is gaining high popularity among the potato farmers.

Paddy-cum-Fish Farming

Paddy Cum Fish Culture (PFC) is the integration of fish farming with paddy. This system is profitable and sustainable, as two crops i.e. paddy and fish can be harvested from a unit cultivable area. The wet terrace rice fields where surface and ground water is sufficiently available can be utilized for development of PFC.
