It provides agricultural facilities relating to land and cultivation of crops.

 

Objectives

  • Implementation and execution of Seed production program allotted by the University every year. Seed Production including Breeder, Foundation, Certified, and Truthful stages of various varieties of crop developed by this University and State Department of Agriculture.

  • Demonstration of novel and new technologies innovated in agriculture, specially in seed production techniques, farm mechanization, precision in agriculture related fields.

  • Demonstrate the improved methods of cultivation of crops and different agro-techniques to the farmers.

  • To impart training to extension workers and to transfer the technology generated at the university level.

 

Soil and Climate

As per the soil survey the farm has approximately 12% shallow soils with depth ranging from 10 to 25 cm, 20 % medium soils with soil depth as 25 to 40 cm and 68 % deep soils with soil depth more than 90 cm. This center comes under the 3rd Agro-Climatic zone i.e. Western Vidarbha Zone, rainfall ranging from 700-950 mm, the rainfall patter and distribution of the region is erratic/prone to long dry or wet spells. Temperture ranges from 30-460C.

 

Salient Features of Centre

  • CDF is a large farm located on NHW No. 6 and close to to the University main campus (23 Kms.).CDF is situated at the bank of Katepurna River & in catchments area of Katepurna dam.

  • Whole farm of CDF, is divided into 16 blocks, other supportive sections includes Workshop, Store, Plant protection & Development Unit, LFD, BSPU sponsored by ICAR, New Delhi, etc.

  • Availability of Land at single location: The major strength of CDF is availability of land i.e. 2031.83 ha at one location. The land is divided in various small blocks for smooth and effective control and supervision of farm activities. Each block is independent in all respect and has own farm office.

  • Mechanization of Farm is possible: University has provided different types of vehicles including farm tractors & farm implements sufficient to complete the farm related operations and activities in time. Being large farm, the mechanization of farm activities is necessary for effective and efficient use of inputs and its cost economics. The available farm machineries needs strengthen and improve with new and latest version.

  • Irrigation facility: Minors of Katepurna project and its subsidiary contributories running into the farms covering larges area. Different farm ponds and water shed structures are developed with a view to bring larger area/land under lift irrigation. Presently farm is not under irrigation mainly due to poor rainfall, low ground water and un-sufficient water level in Katepurna Project/Dam.
