  • Traditional organic agriculture by default to be transformed into Organic by design with state organic policy support . Conversion of 2.50 lakh ha area into certified organic to be marketed in domestic and global organic market.

Double Cropping

  • Creation of additional irrigation potential and renovation & maintenance of existing irrigation infrastructures.
  • Promote Double cropping by providing fencing materials as Govt. assistance for Community fencing and Erection, Masonry & maintenance cost to be borne by beneficiaries in a minimum of 10 ha command area in each cluster.
  • Maize-Rice, Rice-Mustard, Rice-Potato, Maize-Vegetables, Rice-Rabi Pulses cropping sequences to be followed to enhance Cropping Intensity vis-a-vis higher crop production.
  • 20000 ha under Rice fallow to be covered under Rabi pulses in Rice-Pulse sequence.

Enhancement of Farm Income

  • Promotion of Apiculture in mission mode to improve productivity of Oilseeds and Income generating venture through export of organic honey.
  • Promote Private investment in farm sector for value addition, processing, branding and post harvest management for better marketability.
  • Involve Private sector stake holders in Integrated Cold Chain & Common Infrastructure management for remunerative marketing of surplus produce.
  • Develop market infrastructure & linkage through PPP mode For access into domestic and overseas market.
  • Promote primary processing of perishable farm produce through private sector stake holders.
  • Create Farm connectivity for surplus producing areas for smooth transportation of produce to markets.
  • Transform Arunachal into a favored Agro-tourism destination by dovetailing with Tourism promotional schemes and Destination marketing of Arunachal 's agro-tourism.
  • Rural Income generation through intensive cultivation of Mustard, Potato, Off-season Vegetables, Ginger, Large Cardamom ,  King Chilli etc).

Agri. Infrastructures

  • Rural Farm Connectivity through Tractorable gravel roads for transportation of Surplus farm produce to highways for easier market accessibility.
  • Creation of Cold storage capacity to 50000 MT by 2030.
  • Create adequate storage infrastructure to a level of at least 2.00 lakh MT.
  • Creation of 500 Rural huts, 50 urban huts in phased manner.
  • Agri-Horti Shopping mall (Green Hub) in urban markets- Naharlagun, Itanagar, and all District Hq.
  • 50 collection centers with 100-200 MT Cold storage and facility for pre-cooling, sorting, grading, packaging facility.
  • Transit godowns at Bhalukpong, Karsingsa, Kimin, Likabali, Ruksin, Mebo, Roing, Namsai, Mohadevpur, Jairampur, Miao, Deomali, Kanubari.
  • Processing & drying Infrastructures for Ginger, Turmeric, Large Cardamom in PPP/ Contract farming mode.
  • Special emphasis on augmentation of area & production of Off-season vegetables in Tawang, West Kameng, Lower Subansiri, Mechuka subdivision of West Siang and Dibang Valley districts.
  • Processing Infrastructures of Oil Plam, Mustard, Sugarcane, Chilly in PPP/ Contract farming mode.
  • Renaissance of marketing system by creation of Integrated Cold Chain & Common Infrastructures for perishable produce with financial support from Govt. of India. Operationalization to be preferred through outsourcing consultancy service.
  • Establishment of Mandi (wholesale markets) at Bhalukpong, Karsingsa,Kimin, Likabali, Ruksin,Roing, Namsai, Jairampur, Miao,Deomali,Kanubari.
  • Market Information kiosk at Tinsukia,Lakhimpur, Tezpur, Guwahati, Siliguri, Kolkata & Delhi.

Establishment of Central Agriculture University

Establishment of an Agriculture University (central sector)

  • College of Veterinary Science
  • College of Fishery Science
  • College of Home Science


  • There is no regional/ national level HRD/ Research institute in the state. Training, Education & Research facility under Farm sector is not available.
  • Diverse agro-ecological zones in the state requires area specific farming system approach based on research & trial.
  • Technical education under Farm sector for effective Extension services, Agri-preneurship and rural employment opportunity necessitates setting up of an Agricultural University.
  • The North Eastern India is experiencing rapid population growth crossing the 40 million mark.
  • Arunachal Pradesh is the largest state of the North Eastern region with total geographical area of 83743 sq km with population of 13.8 lakhs and is the home of 26 major tribes and 110 sub-tribes with about two-third of population comes under schedule tribes that are indigenous to the state.
  • The anticipated increase in demographic pressure and urbanization are critical issues in terms of food and nutritional security, environmental safety and employment opportunities, thus putting tremendous pressure on the shrinking natural resources and threatening the resource base itself.
  • The agricultural development in the state of Arunachal Pradesh is constrained by lack of quality education & research, adequate infrastructure, low productivity, inadequate marketing and lack of knowledge on modern farm technologies.
  • Higher education in Agriculture can trigger overall development in Arunachal Pradesh, as more than 80% of the population depends on agriculture.
  • Graduate, Post-graduate and Doctorate education can transform young mind into capable researchers, whose continuous endeavor can be the vehicles for agricultural growth.

Attracting Rural Youths in Agriculture (ARYA)

In order to decelerate urban migration of Rural youths and thereby ensure availability of workforce in rural agriculture sector, rural youths are to be attracted by creating suitable Income generating farm activities. Following indicative steps are envisaged:

  1. Promote cash crop cultivation by providing Govt. assistance in shape of quality seeds, Plant nutrients, Post harvest management facilities. Institutional credit to be facilitated for commercial farming by youths.
  2. Skill development of Rural youths in aggregation, grading, packaging & value additions through Livelihood Schools.
  3. Skill up-gradation of Rural youths in Servicing/ maintenance of Farm Machineries.
  4. Skill development of Rural youths in hospitality, catering, tour guide services for Agro-Eco Tourism sector.
  5. Vocational training on primary processing.
  6. Setting up of rural Farm Machinery bank for custom hiring. Educated rural youths to be involved.
  7. 100% coverage of skilled youths under Kisan Credit Card (KCC) Facility.
  8. Regular exposure visits of enterprising youths for developing Agri-Clinic & Agri-Business Centres(ACABC).
  9. Incentives in cash & kind to achiever Youths to create competitive mindset in agriculture production, processing & marketing by instituting "Arunachal Krishi Karman Award".
