HOW WE CAN HELP YOU OUT WITH CROP CUTTING EXPERIMENT ( CCE )
With the implementation of Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bima Yojana (PMFBY) and Restructured Weather Based Crop Insurance Program (RWBCIS), the crop insurance industry has witnessed a tremendous increase in the premium with modest increase in number of farmers as well as in area. Crop Cutting Experiments or CCE, refer to an assessment method employed by governments and agricultural bodies to accurately estimate the yield of a crop or region during a given cultivation cycle. The traditional method of CCE is based on the yield component method where sample locations are selected based on a random sampling of the total area under study. Once the plots are selected, the produce from a section of these plots is collected and analysed for a number of parameters such as biomass weight, grain weight, moisture, and other indicative factors. The data gathered from this study is extrapolated to the entire region and provides a fairly accurate assessment of the average yield of the state or region under study.
In addition to conducting CCEs to estimate the total yield, the Central Government uses this data for its Pradhan Mantri Fasal Bhima Yojana (PMFBY), which is a scheme that assists insurance companiesto disburse payment for farmers’ insurance claims seamlessly. The PMFBY requires each state to carry out at least four CCEs in every village panchayat for each crop and submit the yield data to insurance companies within one month of harvest. Our Digital platforms ensure that these claims and payment processes are backed by data, and are as accurate as they can get.
The data gathered from CCE is useful to multiple stakeholders in the agricultural value chain. While governments use it for planning agricultural policies and programs for the future, the information helps financial institutions with all the inputs they need before offering loans or insurance coverage if there is a poor harvest or crop failure.
OUR SIMPLE PROCESS OF CROP CUTTING EXPERIMENT ( CCE )
Plot Identification and Harvesting:
The size and shape of the experimental plot for paddy and mustard crop is rectangular of dimension (10m x 5m) and that for wheat and potato is square of dimension (5m x 5m).
Measuring Bio-Mass Weight of Harvested Crop:
Weigh at least three plants in field trial and one plant in pot experiment from each of your treatments immediately after harvest to determine to mean fresh weight of plants in each treatment.
Threshing the Harvested Crop:
Threshing is the process of separating the grain from the straw. The crop is held by the sheaves and beats it against a slatted bamboo, wooden platform, or any other hard object such as a steel oil drum.
Measuring Economic Weight:
A number of harvest units are then randomly selected and weighed to obtain an average unit weight. Total harvest of the plot is obtained by multiplying total number of units harvested by the average unit weight.
