    Aspirational Districts:

    New Initiatives in the Region:

    Prospects for Agricultural Sector

    • 57% of the potential Wet Rice Cultivation (WRC) area is yet to be developed.
    • Around 66% of the paddy requirement of the state is brought from outside the state.
    • Government has given focused attention for developing WRC areas under NLUP and other programmes.
    • 80% of the potential area identified for oil palm is yet to be brought under cultivation.
    • There is growing demand for maize for poultry and pig feed in the state.

    Prospects of Horticulture Sector:

    • The agro climatic conditions of the state are suitable for horticulture crops. Mostly produce is organic due to less use of fertilizer and pesticides, etc. The state should capitalize on this advantage.
    • State Govt. is working on aggregation of produce and has promoted 10 FPOs.
    • The department has introduced fruits like dragon fruit, passion fruit and strawberry, which can get more value for the farmers.

    Prospects for Animal Husbandry sector:

    • Demand is not a constraint for the sector. Commercial units are required for exploiting the potential.
    • Besides Government of India schemes like NLM, the State Government has been promoting poultry and piggery under NLUP.
    • Milk processing plants have been established in four districts of Aizawl, Lunglei, Kolasib and Champhai. But these are not operating at optimum level.

    Doubling of Farmers Income:

    • Government of India has decided to reorient its interventions in the farm and non-farm sectors to double the income of farmers by 2022 and seven broad strategies were laid out for achieving this target. The agriculture & allied activities contributed 18.75 percent during 2015-16 and recorded a growth rate of 3%. Faster growth in agriculture is necessary for stronger, sustainable and inclusive growth in the State.
    • The growth in agriculture sector is adversely affected due to low productivity in the prevalent jhum system. Besides, other major constraints in agriculture development and income growths are low seed replacement, low consumption of fertilizers, and low availability of farm power, dearth of potential area connectivity, marginal land holding, poor market linkage and lack of assured irrigation.
    • The state government has been making efforts to improve the income of farmers by promoting animal husbandry sector under its NLUP, DEDS, and NLM. Besides, there has been emphasis on creating irrigation facilities and enhancing coverage under micro irrigation. Besides, food precessing sector is also being accorded priority.

    Success Story:

    Champhai Town Multipurpose Cooperative Society Ltd., F. Lalchhandama, Secretary, Ph. 9615712657, 0383-235310.

    The erstwhile Champhai Chhungte Farming Co-operative Society was established way back in 1994. It was established by a group of farmers especially passion fruit- growers for their mutual benefit. A land was acquired at a distance of 18 km from Champhai to Aizawl road where bamboo, teak and jatropha were planted. In 2012, the society was transformed into a Primary Agricultural Credit Cooperatives Societies (PACS). The society became Champhai Chhungte Primary Agricultural Credit Cooperative Society (CCPACS). Selected members of the society underwent trainings conducted jointly by the Mizoram Cooperative Apex Bank Ltd (MCAB) and NABARD. Citizen with higher intellectual capability, broader outlooks and possessing technical skills were enrolled as members. Now the society composed of members varying from cultivators, computer experts, journalists and professors. The name of the Society was changed to Champhai Town Multipurpose Cooperative Society Limited with PACS functionality in December 2015.

    Activities of the Society

    • Credit Sector : The major activities of this sector are- Collecting deposit (Pigmy) from various members of the society and disbursing different types of loan to farmers, labourers, and small businessmen.
    • Education Sector: without advance technology and level of education, farming cannot became profitable. As such, the society formulated a plan for education mission as follows – To open education centre right from primary level to graduate level, where training centres for computers, automobiles, handicrafts etc. will be incorporated. To provide farming and poultry techniques to youth along with mainstream conventional education so that manual labour will not be looked down upon by younger generation. To impart sports and physical education in these centres so that more younger people earn livelihood from these disciplines. To establish Agriculture research centres and laboratories. In view of the above objectives, and to provide more educational opportunity for younger generation, the Society establish a higher secondary education centre in 2013, named Champhai Higher Secondary School, with arts and commerce subjects.
    • Trade & Commerce Sector: in the trade and commerce sector, the society formulates blueprint for action as follows –In order that Society members and general public could avail daily commodities at cheap rates and the farmers could sell their produce at remunerative rates, the society opened a variety store in Champhai town.
    • Agriculture and Allied Sector: Agriculture is the backbone of Champhai, hence the Society formulated the following action plan for this sector- To establish a marketing department for the purpose of marketing agricultural produces. To establish different cooperative farming such as cattle rearing, poultry farming and other related small scale industries. The Society pursues these objectives relentlessly. A land of 100.8 bighas was obtained from State Government after a prolonged hardship due to the sheer size of land required. The society has spent about Rs 5 lakh for obtaining LSC for the land. At present, water irrigation system is chalked out and a small cottage built in the land. In 2018, the land will be opened for cultivation, the first step in achieving the above objectives.
    • Health & Calamity Sector: Man’s work capacity depends on his health. And if a worker knows that if he is backed up by at least some form of assurance, his production efficiency increases. The society believes this and formulates the following action plans – Provide a healthcare scheme for members and staff. For non – members, provide and healthcare scheme through insurance. To establish a hospital. To realize these objectives, the Society first and foremost provides healthcare scheme for its staff. Medical reimbursement is provided to all staff of the society but only for the staff and not his / her immediate family. This is all the Society could do in the health sector at present. This healthcare scheme is to be extended to all members at a later time, provided the financial position of the Society moves forward.
