The fertile soil of Indo-Gangetic plains of Bihar produces relatively higher crop yields providing greater benefits to the farmers of that region. However, during heavy rains, the farm lands adjoining Ganga River are affected by floods/water-logging for a long period. In this mission, Vetiver, which has the ability to sustain crop growth under submerged conditions, was introduced in those affected areas. These areas which have fertile sandy soils, and are suited for Vetiver growth, have become a boon for the farmers reaping rich benefits (more than 1 lakh per hectare). Also, with high water availability from the rivers/canals, Mentha arvensis has gained popularity in Bihar in recent years. The newly developed Early Mint Technology was demonstrated last year in this region wherein farmers could obtain a yield of more than 200 kgs of oil as against 150 kgs in the Mint growing regions of Uttar Pradesh. It is proposed that in the coming months about 100 ha of additional mint area would be brought under Early Mint Technology in this mission. During 2017, two awareness programmes were organized wherein 155 farmers participated.
