Need proper land use plan in State: DC


Deputy Commissioner Changlang R K Sharma launched a workshop on project Land Resource Inventory of Arunachal Pradesh in large scale for Agricultural Land use planning using Geo-spatial techniques organized by ICAR-National Bureau of Soil Survey & Land Use Planning (ICAR-NBSS&LUP), regional center, Jorhat in collaboration with Department of Agriculture, Government of Arunachal Pradesh (GoAP), here at Changlang Circuit house today.

The programme was attended by the DDAs of six districts namely Longing, Tirap, Namsai, Changlang, Lohit and Anjaw, in which soil survey for resource inventory will be done in first phase, apart from the progressive farmers from district and other stakeholders.

Addressing the gathering, the DC said that though the districts in Arunachal are abundantly blessed with natural resources and have plenty of lands, its farmers have no proper land use plan due to lack of required data. Therefore, he said that, Land resource inventory and Soil reports are much needed for proper land use plan.

He hoped that the land resource inventory and land use pattern which will be generated under the project, will be of much use/help not only for the farmers of the state and department of Agriculture but also other key departments in implementing developmental schemes.

The DC also urged all the farmers to take part in the workshop to avail the benefits while assuring all logistic support from the district administration in making the programme successful.

Earlier Dr Prasenjit Ray (ARS), Scientist, ICAR-NBSS & LUP, Regional Center Center, Jorhat informed that the project will be completed within four years during which the land resource inventory of entire Arunachal will be generated. He added that it will be done phase wise manner and during first phase six easternmost districts would be covered where land use cover map, soil report, agriculture land use plan, etc would be generated in time bound manner. He further appealed the DC for necessary supports to meet the date line.

Dr S Mukhopadhyay, Principal Scientist, ICAR-NBSS&LUP said that the basic entity of the project is to ascertain potential and best features of the soils as well as problems it has and giving management practices specific to the characteristics of the soils.
