Final Report: Baseline Study in Bihar
By
ASA: Action for Social Advancement

ASA conducted a baseline survey on current on current agricultural practices. It provides good insight on the prevailing condition of agriculture in Bihar. It includes income from agriculture, linkages with the government schemes related to agriculture and relationships with primary and secondary institutions where the target groups are farmers. In this study, a total of 15 villages and 405 Households were covered across three districts of Jamuai, Khagaria and Purnia. The findings reveal that around 60 percent of all households have reported a negative net agricultural income.  Study gives following reasons for this condition of agriculture. 
•    Low land holding: Less agricultural produce 
•    Variety of seeds used
•    Lack of awareness about government schemes and programs
•    Poor relationships with primary and Secondary institutions

  Actions that need to be taken: the study suggests following line of action

•    Farmers need to be educated on the use of high yield and hybrid variety seed 
•    Farmer should be trained through demonstrations and training on the land preparation, seed treatment, application of manure and fertilizers, etc;
