Economic potential of hybrid rice in Eastern Uttar Pradesh

Hybrid rice was planted in an area of 1.3 m ha and additional rice production of 1.5 to 2.5 m t was added to the Indian food basket through this technology during the year 2010. More than 80 % of the total hybrid rice area is in eastern Indian states like Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, with some little area in states like Madhya Pradesh, Assam, Punjab and Haryana. Since hybrid rice technology is likely to play a key role in increasing the rice production in India, a  study was conducted in eastern Uttar Pradesh with the

following objectives:

To assess the impact of hybrid rice technology on productivity and income To document the constraints in adoption of hybrid rice technology In order to assess the impact of hybrid rice technology data were collected from 100 rice farmers of two districts viz., Ambedkarnagar and Bahraich districts of Uttar Pradesh. The economics of HYV and hybrid rice cultivation was assessed by using cost and returns concepts.   The income obtained from HYV and hybrid rice cultivation was compared. The relative importance of the constraints in hybrid rice cultivation as perceived
by the farmers were prioritized by using Garrett’s ranking technique.

The results revealed that the yield hike due to hybrid rice cultivation was 26.43 per cent, on an average the price fetched by the hybrid rice was 11.62 per cent lesser than the HYV rice. The total returns obtained per hectare from hybrid rice cultivation were 12.66 percent higher than the HYV rice cultivation. The net benefit cost ratio was 0.83 and 0.94 for HYV and hybrid rice cultivation respectively. Higher seed cost and lower pricing ability were the major constraints in cultivation of hybrid rice as opined by the farmers in the study area.

Hybrid rice has the potential to contribute significantly to improve production and sustain food security. Hence, efforts are needed to promote large scale adoption of hybrids in India. Higher cost of seed was found to be a major deterrent for large scale adoption of hybrid rice technology and hence the cost of the hybrid seed should be reduced. This can be done by improving the hybrid seed yields.

Profitability of System of Rice Intensification (SRI)

Water is going to be most critical input in the future for agriculture in general and rice in particular. Of all the crops, rice uses more than 70 % of all irrigation water in India. Also, there is a notion that higher yields in rice come with high investments on seed, irrigation, high doses of fertilizers and more use of pesticides. This practice not only results in higher cost of cultivation but also may not give the desired results in the longer run. Contrary to this popular view, SRI method of cultivation produces higher yields with less seed and less water. SRI also emphasizes on the need to shift from chemical fertilizers to organic manures.
            The results of a study in Katkur and Bonkallur villages of Jangaon mandal of Warangal district of Andhra Pradesh indicated that the yield advantage with SRI method was 22.8% and 22.5% respectively for Katkur and Bonkallur villages respectively. The net income obtained in Katkur was Rs.9241/acre in conventional method whereas it was Rs.21847/acre in case of SRI method. The net income obtained in Bonkallur was Rs.13393/acre in conventional method whereas it was Rs.19212/acre in case of SRI method of rice cultivation.
 From the various results stated on SRI in India, it can be concluded that SRI method of rice cultivation has yield advantage of around 25% to 55% in various states. The large scale adoption of SRI helps in enhancing production and productivity of rice in India. It also helps in releasing more income by the farmers, because of its yield advantage over the conventional method of rice cultivation.
 The SRI has proven ability to increase rice production by about 25 per cent or more depending on the extent of adherence to its basic principles. More importantly, SRI saves up to 40 per cent water due to alternate drying and wetting system, which is considered a unique advantage of SRI. The farmers are convinced of the benefits of SRI and hence its adoption is spreading on a larger scale.
