The Comprehensive Project on Rice Fallow Management is a transformative initiative launched by the Directorate of Agriculture and Food Production, Government of Odisha for the intensification of pulses in rabi (post-rainy) fallows. The project’s primary goal is to enhance pulse production in the state, thereby addressing food security and nutritional challenges and improving farm income. During the first year of the project (2022-23), the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT), partnered with the Department of Agriculture and a local NGO for the implementation of demonstrations of pulses in 5000 hectares (ha) in Koraput district.
