The goal of BGREI programme is to harness the water potential for enhancing the rice production in Eastern India which was hitherto underutilized. BGREI comprise of four broad categories of interventions:

    • Block demonstration
    • Asset Building
    • Site specific activities
    • Marketing support including post-harvest management Apart from these under BGREI programme, adoption of new seed varieties, farm machines & implements , nutrients, pesticides and knowledge based interventions are being promoted in different agro climatic zones of Eastern states.

    For achieving the goals of BGREI programme the following strategies are advocated:

    • To promote improved production technology of rice on massive scale including popularizing of newly released HY cultivars and Hybrids.
    • To bring rice fallow areas under cultivation through cropping system based approach.
    • To popularize adoption of stress tolerant rice varieties.
    • To create irrigation structures like farm ponds, lift irrigation point etc. to improve irrigation potential.
    • To promote use of farm machineries and implements suitable for small land holding.
    • To create infrastructure such as godown, procurement centre, marketing infrastructure etc.
