    Abstract

    Doubling of farmers’ income by 2022 is the most important agenda of government of India. With this in view, ICAR has intensified efforts towards farmers’ participatory research to develop and scale up location specific, cost effective and climate resilient technologies to enhance agricultural production, productivity and profitability in the agriculture sector and increase farmers’ income. To realise this, Indian Council of Agricultural Research constituted State Level Coordination Committees (SLCCs) headed by a Senior Vice Chancellor of an Agricultural University in each state. All the other Vice Chancellors and the ICAR Directors, Director, ATARI of the concerned region, one nominee each of the related central ministries as well as the senior representatives of the concerned State Departments as the members of the Committee. During the process of the development of the state specific documents, a series of review meetings at the level of the Council were held to discuss and revise the strategies during which eminent authorities including Prof. M.S. Swaminathan, Prof. Ramesh Chand, Secretaries of line departments and other stakeholders including NGOs were also invited to bring in wide ranging expertise to fine-tune the strategies. The documents provide strategies for all the agro-ecologies of the States keeping into mind the scope and potential for development of Horticulture, Livestock, Fisheries, Agro-forestry and Post-harvest processing in the states. The documents focus on enhanced production, reduction of cost, improvement in quality besides providing strategy for scaling out these technologies.
