Seed Bank brings hope to poor peasants of Chakri village

Jamshedpur: The Seed Bank set up in Chakdi village in Potka block in East Singhbhum district of Jharkhand has come as a boon for the poor farmers. The Seed Bank has brought a new hope to the needy farmers and shows the potential of transforming their lives.

A seed bank in Chakri village formed by Yuva and JTDS has improved the quality of life of poor peasants.

The Seed Bank has been set up under Jharkhand Tribal Development Programme and the social organization YUVA has played a pro-active role in motivating the villagers to set up this Seed Bank.

This Seed Bank was formed in Chakri village on December 10, 2008 by the Programme Implementation Committee of that village. Clear-cut rules were laid out for operating the Seed Bank successfully and efficiently.

It was stipulated that the person who deposits seed in the Seed Bank would get 1.5 times of the quantity he keeps in the Seed Bank. And those who take Seed on loan, would have to pay back twice the quantity they take from it.

And it was decided to keep the seeds safely and maintain them after proper packing using the donation from the villagers.

And for ensuring complete transparency in the transactions, a register for recording intake-outgo and a stock register for keeping record of the stock is also maintained properly.

The Seed Bank is operated by the Programme Implementation Committee (PEC) of the Seed Bank.

Presently, the PEP is being run efficiently by its president Vir Chand Sardar. Subodhini Sardar is its secretary, while Savitri Sardar is the treasurer.
The Seed Bank has seeds of several crops, including paddy, tomato, brinjal, lady’s finger, Arhar, ground-nut, gram, coriander, Lauki and mustard.
More than 50 farmers have benefited directly from the Seed Bank.

The Seed Bank has gone a long way in resolving several problems for the farmers. Now, they do not have to run from pillar to the post in search of good seed. In times of need they can easily get the required amount of seed from the Seed Bank and later return it in double quantity when they get sufficient produce.
