Funds for NGO: Call for Proposals for the "Mission Programme on Biotech-Krishi Innovation Science Application Network (Biotech-KISAN)

Deadline: 2018-05-31 Posted On: 2018-05-30 06:10:38 , By Raj Kumar

INTRODUCTION:

Scientists work on problems that interest them. The world faces enormous challenges with large populations, diminishing resources and the consequences of climate change. Scientist are eager to address these problems and find implementable solutions but need to develop a close connect with society for the best solutions to emerge. One very difficult challenge is sustainable food security for all.Over the years, agriculture productivity of the country has been severely affected in both quality and quantity. The main reasons affecting productivity are:

Water: drought, flood, availability and poor quality are major issues.

Soil: poor soil health, lack of application of modern technologies in agriculture due to lack of knowledge and awareness, abiotic and biotic stress due to climate change,

Seed: lack of availability of quality agricultural planting material at affordable cost to small and marginal farmers,

Market: collapse of extension system for dissemination of new technologies among farmers, lack of use of available bio-resources at farm / village level for proper nutrient management and processing, packaging and marketing

The problems faced by the Indian farmer are special, small land holdings are the norm, a very small number of livestock which is often the primary source of livelihood and 15 different agro climatic zones. Solutions developed in the lab, primarily in the developed world do not necessarily address the problems faced by the Indian farmer.

There is a need for direct linkage between science laboratories and farms; it is now imperative that the Indian scientist understand the problems of the local farmer and provide solutions to those problems. Likewise, it is necessary to expose farmers to the scientific solutions available by bringing him to the scientific environment/laboratory. This close interaction and need based research will allow innovative solutions and technologies to be developed and applied at farm level.

OBJECTIVES:

"Biotech-Krishi Innovation Science Application Network (Biotech-KISAN)" will be implemented in 15 agro-climatic zones of India in phased manner with the objective:

- Linking available science and technology to the farm by first understanding the problem of the local farmer and provide solutions to those problems.

- The working together, in close conjunction, of scientists and farmers is the only way to improve the working conditions of small and marginal farmers.

- This programme aims to work with small and marginal farmers especially the woman farmer for better agriculture productivity through scientific intervention and evolving best farming practices in the Indian context.

WHO CAN APPLY:

i) A recognized leader working in any public or private institution / university, foundation or society with a proven track record of leading the projects in the areas related to transfer and demonstration / dissemination of technologies at farmers’ level and well versed with the problems of farmers at grass root level in the region in partnership with 5-8 research institution / universities.

ii) The Programme is intended for those institutions having substantial infrastructure and commitment to undertake farmers’ oriented outreach programmes.

iii) The host institutions should have a functional laboratory, certificate of performance either by farmers / DSIR recognition / ICAR / Department of Agriculture and Cooperation / voluntary NGO status or recognition for service to farmers etc., successful financial and technical implementation of at least two projects funded by any government agencies related to dissemination of proposed technologies and training of large number of farmers, skill development etc. They should also have demonstrated linkages.
