(odisha) | Updated: October 15 2015 10:27 am Hybrid seed brands at a store in Nabarangpur (Source: Express photo by I Kameswar Rao) Related News It is India’s poorest district with over 70 per cent Adivasi and Dalit population — and yet a booming market for multinational and large domestic seed companies The likes of Bayer CropScience Syngenta DuPont-Pioneer Tata-Metahelix US Agriseeds Shriram Bioseed JK Seeds and Advanta are reckoned to have sold 600-650 tonnes of hybrid paddy seeds in Nabarangpur district this kharif season At an average of six kg planted per acre these would have covered more than one lakh acres or 40 per cent of Nabarangpur’s estimated paddy area of 100684 hectares (25 lakh acres) this kharif season This is way above the 5 per cent share of hybrids in the country’s cultivated rice area WATCH VIDEO: Why Is Nabrangpur District Zero “Traditional/local varieties account for barely a tenth of the district’s total paddy area today The balance 90 per cent is under open-pollinated high-yielding varieties (HYV) developed by public sector institutions and privately-bred hybrids Within the 90 per cent there could be a roughly 60:40 split between HYVs and hybrids” says Sushil Haldar Deputy Director of Agriculture Nabarangpur Share This Article Related Article Such high levels of hybrid penetration may seem counterintuitive in a poor and backward district dominated by Adivasi tribal communities such as Bhatra Gond and Kandha It is even more pronounced in maize where hybrid seeds coverage for Nabarangpur is 100 per cent as against the national average of 60 per cent In 2013 when acreages peaked multinationals led by Monsanto DuPont-Pioneer Limagrain and Syngenta — besides Shriram Bioseed Kaveri Seeds and the Thailand-based Charoen Popkhand — reportedly sold 1300-1400 tonnes of hybrid maize seeds in the district At 8 kg per acre these would have got planted in 160000-175000 acres The widespread adoption of hybrid technology may owe partly to aggressive marketing by firms — clearly noticeable from the posters of various hybrid seed brands plastered across walls and roadside trees across the district But that isn’t the sole reason “With Sopori (an indigenous rice variety) I get only 10-12 quintals of paddy per acre whereas it is 18-20 quintals from Pooja (an HYV bred by the Central Rice Research Institute Cuttack) and 25 quintals from Dhaanya (the hybrid brand of Tata-Metahelix)” says Prabhunath Pujari who has a five-acre farm near the Kosagumuda block headquarters This Adivasi grower has in the current season planted Pooja paddy in three acres and the Dhaanya DRH-748 hybrid in the remaining two acres Higher yield apart farmers also cite lower labour requirement as a major advantage with hybrid paddy “Since the seed rate is six kg per acre you can have a plant-to-plant distance of 10 inches and it takes only 10 labourers to transplant one acre in a day In the case of varieties you need to plant 20 kg which means a spacing of just four inches between plants which requires four times the labour” says Praful Kumar Nayak who has a 25 acre farm in Badambada village of Kosagumuda block Nayak who belongs to the Mirgan Dalit caste grows Bayer CropScience’s Arize-6444 Gold hybrid and a publicly-bred HYV MTU-1001 on 10 acres each On the five remaining acres he cultivates Haldigoti a traditional paddy purely for his family’s consumption “It costs Rs 1600 to plant six kg of hybrid paddy seeds compared to Rs 320 for 20 kg of MTU-1001 But this is compensated by higher yields and lower labour requirement I plant MTU-1001 only because it is more disease-resistant” he says Whatever might be the driving factors one thing is clear: Nabarangpur’s farmers have taken to hybrid technology as much if not more than their counterparts in ostensibly richer and less backward parts of India For all the latest India News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Kriti Sonali | Bengaluru | Updated:
