Success Stories of IIHR Technologies
|31||Saplings of Livelihood-A success story in Commercial Nursery||
Availability of quality planting material is highly essential for successful commercial vegetable cultivation. Farmers generally prepare small nurseries in their backyard solely for personal usage. However in the event of pest and disease incidence, natural calamity or field mortality of plants in early stages, the farmer does not have sufficient time to raise new nursery. To address this issue farmer-groups in Self Help Groups (SHGs) were provided with polyhouses/nethouses for production of quality planting material on commercial basis in protected conditions.
|32||Improved Production Technology in Tomato crop||
Tomato is an important commercial vegetable crop for farmers. Tomato farmers are facing various problems due to outbreak of pest and diseases related to climate change, labor shortage and borewells going dry etc. In the last few years, late blight has emerged as a devastating disease for tomato farmers in Kharif and late Kharif season. Cost of inputs has gone up and labor availability has become a major problem. Farmers are increasingly finding it difficult to cope with the rise in input costs and other biotic and abiotic problems facing them.
