Serial Number Major problem identified Identified Thrust Areas
1. 1.Low production of crops as the farmers are still adopting the traditional practices of cultivation 1.Promotion for the adoption of the improved package of practices

6. 6.Dearth of draught animal, 6. Popularizing mechanization
7. 7.Local breed  with slow weight gain, low eggs production,High mortality, low conception rate etc  7.Introduction of improved breed of livestock,
8. 8.Mostly marginal farmers having Low family income & lack in skills 8. Promotion for creating revolving fund  & educating them on improved management practices etc.
