Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries

Regional Station for Forage Production and Demonstration, Kalyani, West Bengal

 

(2015-2016)

Regional Fodder Station, Kalyani (WB), Govt. of India, Ministry of Agriculture, Deptt. of Animal Husbandry, Dairying & Fisheries

VISION:

              The Regional Station for Forage Production & Demonstration, Kalyani (W.B.) renamed as Regional Fodder Station was set up in 1969 under Fourth –Five year plan to cater fodder development in the entire Dairy Production region comprising states pf West Bengal, Assam, Bihar, Manipur, Tripura, Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Sikkim, Mizoram, and Jharkhand. One of the main objects for establishing the Regional Station was to bring down the time gap between Research and Extension agencies in the aspect of fodder development. This Regional Station would work as bridge between the Research and Extension work. The result of research work would flow without time lag and reach to the actual users i.e. the farmers. Thus a strong liaison is to be established between Research Institute and Agricultural Universities etc. in one hand and in other hand the State Department of Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Forestry, Dairy development Board, Co-operative Dairies and other such organizations in sphere of augmenting the feed and fodder resources of the entire Eastern and North-Eastern Region.

MISSION:

1.      Livestock population is a part and parcel of the rural community. There, livestock improvement through nutritional development is utmost important. In India there is a considerable gap between fodder requirement and availability. The demand of fodder has further increased due to introduction of cross breeding programme of cattle in a large scale. There are certain limitations, which are responsible for lack of fodder development work.

2.      Non-availability of cultivated fodder land (Till today we have achieved on an average 4.8% of land nationwide).

3.      Lack of awareness about fodder cultivation and their proper utilization.

4.      Non availability of improved pastureland for grazing purpose.

5.      Non utilization of unconventional areas like watershed areas, cultivable waste land shed of forest land and orchards etc.

6.      Non availability of quality fodder seeds/ cuttings towards the farmers at the time of their needs.

7.      Non organized training programme of 1st hand latest fodder production technologies for the farmers.

OBJECT:

1.      To establish the nucleus of an extension organization in Eastern and North Eastern Regional Agro climatic condition for effective technology transfer on all aspects of fodder / fodder seed production and related disciplines.

2.     To demonstrate to the farmers the improved techniques of fodder production and utilization and strengthen / improve the extension activities of the State authorities at the farm levels.

3.     Multiplication and distribution of foundation / certified forage crops, perennial grasses and legumes seeds.

4.     Conducting training programmes to educate the state Government officials, NGO and dairy farmers.

5.     Demonstration of superior package of practices of fodder crops.

6.     Introduction of fodder crops in existing crops rotation.
