Farming system Research Centre

About Centre

All India Coordinated Agronomic Research Project" with two components viz Model Agronomic Experiments and Simple Fertilizer trials was sanctioned first by ICAR in the year 1968 with R.S. Pura as Sub-Centre. During VII th five year plan 1984, the Centre was upgraded as Main Centre by ICAR with a budgetary support of 75 % by the ICAR and 25 % by the state and the scheme was renamed as AICRP on Cropping Systems and the Centre of SKUAST- J& K, R.S.Pura, Jammu was named as Cropping System Research. Latter on in 1993, Experiment on cultivators field (ECF) as a scheme of CSR was sanctioned by ICAR aiming to conduct the experiment at various location of the Jammu division in the Farmers field for developing location specific technologies

  • To characterize existing farming systems to know the productivity, viability and constraints.
  • To develop and validate region-specific Integrated Farming System Models for enhanced system productivity, profitability and sustainability.
  • To assess relative efficiencies of the IFS model in terms of economics, resource use and energy.
  • To optimize individual components of IFS in regional perspective
  • Capacity building of stakeholders in Integrated Farming Systems through appropriate trainings.
  • On- Station Experiments

a) Cropping System
  • Identification of need based alternative cropping systems.
  • Permanent plot experiment on integrated nutrient supply system in rice-wheat cropping system
  • Synthesized sustainable model for rice-wheat cropping system. (Concluded)
  • Tillage and planting management in rice –wheat cropping system. (Concluded)
  • Development of organic farming package for system based high values crops.

  • b) Integrated farming system:-
  • Integrated farming system approach for entrepreneurship development.
    • On farm Research Programme (OFR)

    The on-farm research experimentation is being carried out at 72 farmers field of Samba district under the following objectives :-
  • Response of nutrients (NPK) in predominant cropping system.
  • Diversification/intensification of existing (Rice/Maize-Wheat) cropping system.
  • On farm evaluation of farming system modules for improving profitability and livelihood for small and marginal farmers (Concluded)
  • Cluster base on farm participatory research in farming system perspective under Tribal Sub Plan (T.S.P)
