Mera Gaon Mera Gaurav(MGMG) programme was initiated in October, 2015, at this centre with an aim to improve the technical knowledge of the farmers in different plantation crops in the adopted villages. All the different disciplines worked together to bring out the best for the farmers. National priorities such as climate change, good agricultural practices and pest and disease management of crops are envisaged in this programme.  Here in Kahikuchi since only two scientists are presently working, brief activities of the two villages are presented.

During this last quarter of the year emphasis was given on awareness programme on nursery management practices of  plantation crops. The scientific methods of cultivation of coconut, arecanut and black pepper and cocoa was also emphasized upon.  Discussion was on scope and potential of cocoa cultivation in NE Region. The cropping system model of cocoa and arecanut and system of planting in areca garden was also discussed. The economics of cocoa based cropping system in arecanut plantation and use of farm machinery for enhancing agricultural production was also highlighted. The farmers were also taught about the cost and benefit ratio of planting cocoa under arecanut based cropping system. Farmers from the adopted villages were invited to CPCRI RC Kahikuchi for a demonstration on nursery management in the mandate crops. Awareness on intercropping of seasonal vegetables and flowers under arecanut and coconut gardens was also given. Emphasis was also laid on plant health management such as Integrated pest management and soil health management practices. Most of the farmers were interested to grow black pepper in arecanut trees as it will fetch a good amount of income. The high density multi species cropping system is another important aspect which was demonstrated and many of the farmers had shown keen interest on doing it in their farms. Exposure visits were also made to the Research centre for understanding the scientific methods of cultivation of coconut and arecanut. A total of 15 numbers of literature hand outs were provided to farmers on different farming technologies such as Assamese bulletin of Scientific method of Arecanut plantation and Success story of CPCRI, RC, Kahikuchi etc. for awareness programme to provide the role of CPCRI in different plantation crops.
