The ambitious agricultural research Programme in the country was launched in India on 26th July, 2006. It is known as National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP), the project focuses on innovations in agricultural technology. It can support poverty alleviation and income generation along with livelihood and nutritional security of tribal families. This is possible through collaborative development and application of agricultural innovations by the public organizations in partnership with farmers’ groups, the private sector and other stakeholders. Four districts of Rajasthan, namely, Udaipur, Banswara, Dungarpur and Sirohi figure prominently as the disadvantaged districts, which are identified by the planning commission, based on income, tribal population, their resources, state of agriculture, etc. Keeping in view the challenges of food and nutritional security, National Agricultural Innovation consortia project was initiated by the ICAR in MPUAT, Udaipur (Rajasthan).
