5. INTRODUCTION “Everything else may wait but not AGRICULTURE” -Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru The rural agricultural work experience programme (RAWE) is being conducted every year in the 7 th semester. In this programme, all students are divided into different groups and are assigned to carry out different activities under the proper guidance of our respected teachers known as supervisors and also with the coordinators cooperation and participation of the villagers. Here, Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) technique is conducted to gain experience. So, we were required to carry out the exercises in the assigned village with the help of the villagers and submit our report through different maps. During the PRA exercise, we were exposed to village situation and we got a basic understanding of various on-farm activities. Each and every student developed communication skills during the presentation conducted regularly under this programme and during training, demonstration and exhibition. Various exercises under this project developed knowledge of the student and revised all the courses that we studied for the last 3 years. We are now comfortable while communicating with the villagers. I think the most important achievement of this RAWE program is that it has generated interest in the minds of the students to do something for the villagers because they have very closely observed the real problems and difficulties faced by the poor farmers.

7. RURAL AGRICULTURAL WORK EXPERIENCE(RAWE) Agricultural education is an important tool in ensuring increased agricultural productivity, sustainability and environmental and ecological security, profitability, job security and equity. In India RANDHWA Committee (1992) recommended the rural agricultural work experience (RAWE) programme for imparting quality, practical and production oriented education for agriculture degree programme. The World Bank (1975) stated that there was little emphasis on curricular or agribusiness outside Government jobs. Therefore, the agenda for the 21 st century in agricultural education should be drawn on the basis of challenges it has to meet in the near future. RAWE programme provides significant hands on experience in acquiring knowledge & skill. What is RAWE? RAWE (Rural Agricultural Work Experience) is a programme for imparting quality, practical & production oriented for agricultural degree. Importance of RAWE Programme  Preparing agricultural graduates for better career in agriculture.   Preparing agricultural graduates oriented education to face the challenges by acquiring knowledge & skill though hands on experience.  Objectives of RAWE  Understanding the rural life by students.   To get familiarize with the socio-economic conditions of the farmers & their problems with reference to agricultural development.   To provide an opportunity to the students for practical training in crop production through work experience.   To develop communication skills among students using extension teaching methods in transfer of technology.   To develop the understanding regarding agricultural technologies being followed by farmers and to prepare alternate farm plans to suit to the local situation in consultation with farmers.  COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 3

13. PARTICIPATORY RURAL APPRAISAL (PRA) PRA is a process of involving local people in the analysis and interpretation of local situation. PRA is a methodology for interacting with villagers, understanding them and learning from them. It involves a set of principles, a process of communication and a menu of methods seeking villager’s participation in putting forward their points of view to make use of such learning. It initiates a participatory process and sustains it. Its principles and the menu of methods help in organizing participation. PRA constitutes a process of involvement with rural people for indigenous knowledge building exercise. It is a way of learning form villagers and with their support to investigate, analyze and evaluate constraints and opportunities. It helps to make informed and timely decisions regarding developmental projects. The participation of rural people can be facilitated through PRA for planning, implementing and monitoring of rural developing programme. Objectives  To generate information and collection of data for immediate or future use.   For greater and better involvement of villages by learning about their perceptions, experiences and capabilities.   For learning about the impacts of earlier or ongoing policies and programme and to frame new ones.   For validation and cross-checking of data collected from other sources.   For training of different categories of persons involved in the development process, whether from Govt., NGOs, Banks, Researchers, Extension Agents, Scientists, etc. COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 9

14. PRA Techniques PRA is both an attitude and methodology. It is one of the tools of surveying that helps outsiders to understand the village symbols, systems, dynamics, and politics by using various techniques as well as by methods of direct observation and discussion. The process of understanding the agro system and the social organization can only be successful with the total involvement of the village people & the officials concerned. Need For PRA  Sustained change and the need for accurate and timely information.   It advances that the people themselves are “solution agents” for their problems.   It cuts down the “Normal Professional Bias” and anti-poverty bias towards people.   Reduces down the normal time consuming long methods of survey which consumes the most needed resources and that gives results after a long time.   The method is cost effective, accurate and timely. Purpose of PRA  To use farmer’s criteria, choices and understand the local environment with clear local priorities.   To learn farmer’s indigenous technologies.  To achieve for triangulation using different methods & involving various people to check and recheck the findings.   To develop self-critical analysis and direct contact with local needs and communities. COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 10

15. GUIDELINES FOR CONDUCTING INTERACTION IN PRA: Before  Meet the villagers with an open and frank-mind. Tell them who you are and why you have come.   Build up personal rapport with villagers.  Identify villagers who are willing to share their experiences.  Always begin to interview by relaxing the tension of the interviewer by asking general questions and setting the climate for discussion.  Select a suitable place for the interview. Sit down with the villagers on the same floor. During  Listen carefully, show empathy and be patient.  Intense and careful observation is most important.  Don’t interrupt, suggest or prescribe.  Be polite, gentle and accommodative.  Head nodding during interview is avoided.  Try to follow existing customs of the village.  There is no point in getting impatient or becoming too much inquisitive when the villagers discuss among themselves. After  At the end of the interview, all the interviews must be thanked individually by the members of the group for giving time & sharing their experience.  Sit down with all the members and record all the information collected and the process of information generation. COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 11

16. PARTICIPATORY MAPPING/MODELLING This is the construction of a village area using rangoli powders or chalk on the ground or a cement floor for understanding the village lay out ,main features such as housing, temples, stores and other infrastructure and other resources like forests, lands, watersheds etc. Purpose  To get an impression of the social and physical layout of the village as perceived by villagers themselves.   To understand globally the social structure of the village, which live there, which facilities is there, where they are located etc.   To get an impression of the natural resource environment of the village as perceived by the villagers. Situation Where Applicable Participatory maps are useful in identifying status of land holding and animals of different households. In identifying beneficiaries of various developmental programmes etc. Through participatory mapping other items like dry land/ irrigated land, rivers, forest lands and temple lands, tanks and nullahs and other water resources could be identified. The participatory mapping can also be used to prepare treatment plans for soil and water conservations, forestry and other treatments. COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 12

17. ORIENTATION PROGRAMME Before direct exposure to the village there was an orientation programme in the college itself from31.08.2016-07.09.2016. The motto of this programme was to aware the students about the works which should be done during the whole semester. All the students, dean sir, all the faculty members of Dept. of Extension Education and 16 programme supervisors were present in this programme. The programme was conducted by the Chairman of RAWE Dr. A. P. Kanungo. During this week we were able to learn about the techniques of PRA. All the faculty members of various departments helped us to understand and to practice all the exercises regarding PRA. During this programme all the students were grouped into 08 groups. My group members were the all the boys of Section A and first 5 boys from Section B. We the group members had to do all the works in the village together. We were allotted one villages i.e. Achyutpur (Dharmasala Block, Jajpur)(Irrigated) during this programme. Each student was allotted two host farmers in that village. My host farmers were Mr. Shyam Sundar Barik and Mr. Prabhat Lenka.We are really thankful to our college and Dept. of Extension Education for arranging this orientation programme which built confidence among us to work with the farmers in the village.

20. RAPPORT BUILDING WITH THE VILLAGERS We were assigned to a particular village i.e. Achyutpur. That village was almost 15km away from our Krishi Vigyan Kendra, albeit we move to other villages like Choromuha, Dihakuransa, Bandareshwara and Krishnapada still we are more connected with Achyutpur.Going to a new place to do PRA was at first filled with excitement and nervousness both. In order to boost our confidence our KVK members like PC Madam – Mrs (Dr). Tilottama Pattnaik , Mrs. Dharitri Madam,( Scientist, Home Science), Bipra Sir (Farm Manager) and Dr. K.C Samal accompanied us to that village on the first day of the visit (20th September, 2016).We kept our vehicles beside the main road and entered into the village. The villagers were busy with their works. We addressed them with folded hands and head bowed in respect. We introduced ourselves as 4th yr. B.Sc. (Ag) students from OUAT, Bhubaneswar and described our motto of our visit. We put forward numerous questions regarding the village history, crop grown, standard of living of the people, organizations & institutions, available resources, problems & opportunities. They listened patiently to our politely posed questions and answered with great interest. We arrived at sensitizes and important issues using open ended questions. We requested them to help us in mapping, modeling, matrix ranking, wealth ranking, transact walk and other PRA activities and they showed enthusiastic & active participation. Towards the end, we felt as if we belong to a single family. We knew each other both personally and professionally. We got tremendous cooperation from both the villages’ residents. On the last day of completion of PRA, we thanked each villager individually for helping us throughout by devoting their valuable time & sharing their bountiful experiences.

41. MATRIX RANKING Villager’s preference & attitude towards a particular topic of interest is revealed to us by this technique. It helps us to understand farmer’s priorities in crop varieties, vegetables, tree species, livestock categories, soil & water conservation techniques, irrigation methods etc. The reason for their liking & disliking & the suitable difference in choice & priority among the villagers of different areas can also be understood which help us to prioritize & determine the strategy. PURPOSE :- • To get better understanding of farmer’s decision making process. • To identify criteria used to prioritize & select certain items of activities over others. Situation where applicable :- Matrix ranking can be used to study a range of subjects like soil, crops, crop varieties, trees, fodder, types of cattle & breeds . WEALTH RANKING Wealth ranking is a method of ranking or grouping of households on the basis of income, wealth and other local measures of wellbeing. Different criteria can be used for wealth ranking based on rural perceptions. Wealth ranking is based on the presumption that rural people have the necessary knowledge to group households which implies that they have knowledge of kinds and positions of household assets, other items and attributes to the household concern.

49. SEASONALITY Seasonality is an exercise to determine seasonal patterns in rural areas as related to farming practices, rainfall, labour availability etc. It attempts to establish regular cycle or pattern of activity and occurrences within a community over 12 months. It determine the seasonal calendar as understood and practiced by the villagers. This is determined in terms of odiya months, like Baisakha, Jyestha etc. and then adjusted to the English calendar. This is built upon using different lengths of sticks or numbers of stores or seeds to quantify items such as employment, availability of agri inputs, income, expenditure etc. Purpose : • A seasonal calendar helps to present large quantities of diverse information in a common time frame. It compares community activities for month by month across sectorial boundary. It identifies cycles of activity that occur within the life of community on regular basis and helps determining whether there are common periods of excessive environmental problems of opportunity over the course of normal year. These yearly cycles are important in determining for example : labour availability, timing for project activity, potential absorptive capacity for new activities, times of diseases and food shortage and employment generation. • Data for seasonal calendar was collected from community group. Effort was made to diversify informants from community groups i.e. men and women, informal leader, young and old residents. COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 45

CROP PLANNING FOR DIFFERENT SITUATION • Crop planning allows us to generate an idea of what need to get prepared, seeded or transplanted to meet the needs of the marketing plan. Crop rotations, planned orders of specific crop or crop families, reduce the impact of pests, pathogens and weeds. Including cover crops in a farm rotation can add significant fertility to the soil, build soil organic matter, attract beneficial insects and reduce the weed pressure. • It’s hard to defor a particular farm or village without a proper map. COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 53

58. • During our visit to Village Achyutpur which is a rice dominated area and of which most of the farmers are marginal in land holding where we came across various aspects of agriculture. The RAWE programme was held at Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Badchana, Jajpur where we came across various famers who are very advanced in every aspect of farming and they know a lot more than us . One such example is Kishori Kant Rout who is an advanced farmer and knows about most of the schemes and advancement in technology. • They were mostly using cultivars of rice like khandagiri, Udaygiri, Tejas, Tapaswini, Nadiaphula, Culture (Early Duration Type), Swarna, Swarna sub – 1, Beena ( Medium Duration Type), Pooja, 1018, Kalashree, Chakadola, Sarchina (Long Duration Type) etc. Mostly it was an irrigated area. In rice cultivation they were actually following the recommended dose of fertiliser application like 40:20:20, 60:30:30 and 80:40:40 N2: P2O5:K2O kg/ha for early, medium and long duration respectively. We also came across some of the weeds like Avena fatua, Echinochola crus-gali, Leptocloa chinensis etc. To control using implements like cono weeder and the chemicals like pretilachlor, nomini gold, hitcel, kalinga heera etc. Achyutpur is an advanced farm mechanised village, most of the farmers were using latest farm implements in the field like MB plough, Cultivator, Rotavator, Cono weeder, Transplanter, Tractor, Seed cum fertiliser drill, Combine harvester etc. • A group of students started collecting information from Kishori Kant Rout and fellow farmers about the crop plan followed by them. From the info provided by them we got to know that most of the farmers follow multiple farming, the COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE, OUAT, BBSR-3 Page 54

59. type of soil was basically clay loam and clay type, for irrigation they mostly depend on bore wells and canal water and the type of land was medium and low land. During Kharif season the farmers cultivate rice and during the Rabi season they grow mostly vegetables (Cabbage, cauliflower, coriander, onion), pulses (green gram, black gram), sugar crops basically sugarcane and even some crops like groundnut, colocasia and potato. In the Kharif season they are practising sowing of paddy in single row method (BGREI Scheme). Recommendations: To adopt the multiple cropping system along with the other allied sectors like poultry, mushroom . Not to use the same varieties to avoid fluctuation in the field. Apply herbicides and pesticides in time with recommended dose.
