Realtime Contingency

NICRA Village: Ningnoti, Indore district, Madhya Pradesh

Rainfall Situation and Type of Contingency (Midseason drought) : During 2012, in the village, the onset of south-west monsoon was delayed  i.e.,29th  June. There was deficit rainfall of 96 %, 30 % and 100 %   during June, August and October, respectively (Fig. 21)  coinciding with the seedling stage/vegetative stage of blackgram, maize, soybean, and horsegram.

Normal and actual (2012) monthly rainfall at Ningnoti village

Contingency Plan Implemented: As a midseason correction to mitigate dry spells, foliar spray was done with VAM-C 50 % SL @ 3.75 l/ha; potassium solution @ 2%; thio- urea @ 250 g/ha  at the reproductive stage of  blackgram (JU-86), maize (HQPM-1), soybean (JS-60), and horsegram (HG-563).

Performance: Foliar  spray of  VAM-C 50 % SL @ 3.75 l/ha recorded  significantly higher yield of soybean 2365kg/ha, maize 1870 kg /ha, blackgram 462 kg /ha and horsegram 667 kg/ ha as compared to no spray. Higher net returns and BC ratio was also obtained with foliar spray of VAM-C 50 % SL @ 3.75 l/ha in all the crops compared to other sprays and control (Table 10).
