Contingency measures:

  • Sali rice: Famers are advised to collect information on varieties, sources of seeds and seed selection. These information can be procured from KVKs, District Agriculture Office, AAU, Kisan Call Centre, seed dealers and other NGOs or agencies. Additionally, farmers practicing rice-rice double cropping can select short to medium duration varieties like Satya and Basundhara. Manohar Sali, Biraj, Solpona are recommended for post flood transplanting. Jalashree and Jalkunwari recommended for chronically flood affected areas.
  • Seed bed: Land should be thoroughly puddled and seed beds of 10 m length and 1.25 m breadth should be prepared with 30 cm gap in between the beds. The length of the bed may vary according to convenience. Seed treatment and seed rate: Seeds should be put in plain water, stirred well, sunk seeds selected and the floated ones rejected. After selection, the seeds should be soaked directly in either Mancozeb/Captan/Carbendazim @ half spoon/kg seed/lit of water for 24 hours. One liter of fungicide solution is required to treat 1 kg of seed. Treated seeds should be kept for incubation for 48 hrs. 5 kg of seeds are required for transplanting 1 bigha land. Well germinated seeds are to be sown @ 650 g to 1 kg per bed depending on grain size. Requirement of seeds for transplanting one bigha of main field is 5 kg.
  • Sugarcane: A light earthing up should be given to fill trenches/furrows within 45 to 60 days after planting. Spread of stem borer can be checked by burying/burning of infested canes.
  • Papaya: Papaya seedlings may be planted from the month of June. Prepare pits of 45cmx 45cm x 45cm at a spacing of 1.8 m x 1.8 m. The recommended varieties are Washington, Ranchi, Halflong, Solo Papayas etc. Ensure proper drainage to drain excess water.
