31 March, Samdrup Jongkhar: In order to popularise superior quality genetic breeds through provision of efficient nutrition and health care management and achieve genetic potentials of the crossbred cows, an Artificial Insemination (AI) program followed by sensitisation cum training was inaugurated in Martshalla geog. The improvement of the genetic materials could mean an increase in the production by more than 1200 litres of milk in 300 days (one lactation length).
The Geog Gup graced the program as a Chief Guest who highlighted the importance of AI and its benefits for the rural community in his speech. More than 50 farmers of Dungmanma and Gorthongma Dairy Cooperatives, which was established five years ago, attended the program.

To save time, funds and avoid duplication, RDC Yusipang will be organising a one day stakeholder’s meeting on 18 April 2014 at NRDCL Hall on establishment of network of PSPs with the aim to bring together all available information, identify common objectives and goals towards obtaining reliable information and agreeing on uniformity of sample plots, data collection and sharing of information amongst the stakeholders.
One of the main objectives of the Department of Forests and Park Services in the 11th FYP is to generate scientific information for managing the forest and its resources on sustainable basis. As such the establishments of a network of Permanent sample plots (PSPs) in different ecological zones have been given top priority by the Department of Forests and Park Services. PSPs are necessary as they provide valuable information on forest structure and composition (regeneration, growth, mortality, gap dynamics, micro-site patterns, ground flora and fauna) and other factors that affect forest productivity and conservation over a long period of time especially in the face of climate change.
