Strategic Research and Extension Plan for District Hazaribag, JHARKHAND.

The State of Jharkhand was created in November’ 2000 after carving 79 lakh hectares geographical area from the State of Bihar for better planning and execution of development activities of a ecologically different zone ( Hills & Plateau region compared to Bihar plains). The agricultural scenario of the State is not very good since the cropped area is only 22 lakh hectares with average productivity of 1.0 t ha-1.

Jharkhand is basically a rural economy. A state of 27 m people has 80 pc of the population living in rural areas for whom agriculture and allied activities is the mainstay of the livelihood. The state has 30 lakh ha of cultivable area, out of which about 40 pc is upland. It has got hardly 2 lakh ha area under assured irrigation and the main crop is paddy. Farmers operate with some of the most primitive farm technologies and only limited extension services are accessible to them.
