ARSS, Kotputali


About college

The Agriculture Research Sub Station is initiated in the year 2004 formerly it was the Krishi Vigyan Kendrea working under Rajasthan Agricultural University Bikaner and this centre is situated at prime location of the state and near by the national capital. Initially KVK was established at this place since Oct, 1989 and office was working temporarily on hire building at Kotputli. In the year 1998 when office building was construction completed, this office was shifted to at this office. The seed production programme of barley, mustard, methi, wheat etc. was also started at this place and simultaneously field demonstration on agronomy and horticulture crops was taken at farmers’ fields. Unfortunately due the policy of one KVK in one district this KVK was bound-up and Rajasthan Agricultural University Bikaner established Agriculture Research Sub Station at this centre on the Novth, 2004 and recently new KVK is also established in front of this office. Now, this centre under Sri Karan Narender Agriculture University-Jobner. The agroclimatic zone of the ARSS is III-A (Semi Arid Estern Plan). The average rainfall of the Kotputli is 541 mm. The soil of the zone are light textured sandy loam soil, the mean annual temperature between 40-43C in the month of May and June while mean winter temperature about 10-120C during the months of December and January. The principle horticultural crops are tomato, chilii, cole crops, carrot, pea,  clusterbean, leafy vegetable, watermelon, muskmelon, cucumber ,round melon, spices crops also grown by the farmers. The mainly orchards are of aonla, pome-granate, bael, guava, lime, lehswa, karonda etc. This centre having 35 ha land along with two tube well facilitated with 24 hour city line electricity. A horticultural crops based demonstration definitely impel to the farmers in this locality  to adopt horticultural crops.

Project completed with significant out put

The project namely “Farm development of Agriculture Research Sub Station-Gonera, Kotputli” have completed at ARSS under RKVY. In this project boundary wall, poly house and nursery unit are main component and work is in progress.

  1. Name of Project:Farm Development of Agriculture Research Sub Station   Gonera, Kotputli under RKVY

  2. Name of P.I. & CO-P.I.: Dr. D.K.Yadav & Dr. Parvati Deewan

  3. Year of Sanction:2016-17

  4. Objectives:

  •  Constriction of boundary wall to protect ARSS farm from stray animals and theft: At farm 1800 M running length completed.

  • Adding of organic matter and clay in the soil of farm to enhance soil fertility: Adding of organic matter and clay in 21.0 ha area completed during 2018-19,2019-20 & 2020-21.

  • To improve water use efficiency: Covered under micro irrigation system 3.5 ha area & one ha. area under drip irrigation system completed.

  • To provide true to type fruit plant to the farmers and institutional: Establishment of small model of nursery to raise fruit plant nursery completed.

  • To purchase new farm implements for improving farm soil condition:

              Purchased Implements-

  1.  Multi crop thresher-1

  2. Rotary Tiller-1

  3. Seed Cum Fertilizer drill machine-1

  4.  Disc Harrow-1

  • Construction of Pucca Pond to harvest roof water of office for nursery use: Construction of Pucca Pond to harvest roof water of office for nursery use. A small model nursery unit will be established in 500 Mgreen shed net area.

Impact of the Project: The seed quality and varietal improvement had a very important role in better utilization of inputs in different agro-climatic condition of the state. The direct contribution of quality seed alone to total production has been estimated at around 15-20 % depending upon the crop. This office having more potential of production as well as productivity of rabi & kharif crops but the production is restricted due to low soil fertility, farm protection, lack high-tech irrigation system, farm machinery and implements etc. Keeping these facts this office has made an action plan to achieve an impact of god quality of seed production programme. To keep the main objective to protection farm from stray animals, encroach and theft construction of compound wall fencing will be constructed during this time. Productivity at this farm is very low owing to very low organic matter in the soil. For improvement in soil fertility adding of FYM and clay soil is the step to increase organic matter and water holding capacity.

This office having more potential of production as well as productivity of rabi&kharif crops but the production is restricted due to low soil fertility, farm protection, lack high-tech irrigation system, farm machinery and implements. By adopting this project the breeder seed production programme is towards increasing level at this center. The data of seed production programme is showing significant effect of the project. It is cumulative effect of boundary wall, adding of FYM and clay soil, establishment of micro irrigation system and role of new farm implements. Year 2019-20 we got highest production (641.04qts) and it is 50.03 % higher than initial production (427.28 qts).The production data are as follows-
