Use of High Yielding Seed Varieties

Use of high yielding variety (HYV) seeds is low in Bundelkhand, though higher than in the 1970s and 1980s. Agriculture Census Input Survey 2001-02 (Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India ) data shows that in UP Bundelkhand as a whole, HYV seeds were used in around 37% of cropped land. In MP Bundelkhand, the usage was limited to around 15% of the cropped land. In contrast, HYV seeds were used in 83% and 23% of cropped land in UP and MP as a whole, respectively.

Bundelkhand's soil and irrigation conditions are most suited for cultivation of pulses and oilseed crops like groundnut. However, HYVs of these crops have not been promoted in a big way in the region. In Panna, Damoh and Sagar districts, less than 6% of cropped land was sown with HYV seeds. In UP Bundelkhand, lowest usage was in Chitrakoot (13.6% of cropped land).
