The district has as an area of 1933.38  sq.km with a gross cropped area of around 1.118 lakhs Ha.. The department policy and objectives have been to ensure stability in agricultural production and to increase the agricultural production in a sustainable manner to meet the food requirement of growing population and also to meet the raw material needs of agro based industries, thereby providing employment opportunities to the rural population.

  The Agriculture Department has taken up the challenge to achieve higher growth rate in agriculture by implementing several development schemes and propagating of relevant technologies to step up the production. National Agriculture Development Programme, Seed Village Scheme , National Mission On Oilseeds and Oilpalm , National Food Security Mission , Tamil Nadu Cotton Cultivation Mission, National Mission On Sustainable Agriculture, Soil Health Card Mission, Soil health improvement through Bio-fertiliser including Green Manuring, adoption of Integrated Nutrient Management (INM) and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) technologies are given priority through various programmes, besides crop diversification to fetch better return and value addition to agricultural produce which inturn improve the economic status of the farming community.

            The Ariyalur  District has a Geographical area of 1,93,338  Hectares. Of which the net area cropped is 1,11,874 Hectares. Out of which about 45136   Ha are irrigated and about   66,738 Ha are rainfed. The River Cauvery tributary irrigates about 10,389 Ha. in Thirumanur, T.Palur and Jayankondam Block.

OBJECTIVE

             To function as an advisory to the farmers in their day to day agricultural activities, supply of quality seeds, monitoring and making available quality chemical fertilizers, bio fertilizers, bio pesticides besides making available the latest technologies from research institutions with a view to increase the food production and raw material production to cater to the growing needs of the food for the population and raw materials for the industries.

Aim:  

1.To sustain the Agricultural cropping  Area.

2. To increase the Production and Productivity

3. Double the production and triple the income of the farming community.
