RKMP- Private Sector Workshop, 24th September, 2013

 RKMP has organized a workshop for the private sector on 24TH September, 2013. The main aim of this workshop is to strengthen RKMP by involving the private sector & analyze what best can be done with Private sector partnerships. Several issues were identified during the workshop which are as follows:


1: Private information on public portal: Challenges 

2: Incorporating service component into RKMP

3: Platforms/ Interface Development for Private sector

4: Advertisements : prospects and issues

5: Mobile applications of RKMP–Perspectives of Private sector

The workshop ended up with actionable points for the involvement of private sector in strengthening RKMP activities. 




Towards simplifying the Rice Knowledge

 By now RKMP has been recognised as the largest repository of rice knowledge across the globe. In a series of innovations, that will have far reaching positive consequences in the rice knowledge dissemination, we are trying to simplify the rice knowledge into 8 broad categories. We urge our extension officers, to develop their own knowledge base using these 8 categories of information.


Tranplant Rice seedlings

Well the time for transplanting has come ….As your seedlings are 25-35 days old ,Uproot them slowly so as to minimize the shock during upliftment and transplant them in the main field.Plant 2 or 3 seedlings per hill by following a spacing of 30x20 cms. It can be done manually or by mechanical transplanters.

Time for Land Preparation

Its time for getting your land prepared for cultivating paddy. Land preparation serves to be the initial step in getting a better yield as it plays a vital role in crop establishment. Plough your land upto 15-20cms about 2-3 times and level it properly, ensure that it is free from weeds before sowing/transplanting.
