In this paper, we propose a new statistical model which yields a variety of some well known probability distributions including Exponential, Weibull and Rayleigh distributions as a special case. Finally, numerical illustrations in case of rainfall data have been given. Appropriate statistical models were used to study the pattern of rainfall data. The Generalized Pareto distribution yielded best fit followed by Johnson SB and Generalized Extreme value. Source

Farmers from a number of non-traditional states in India expressed their desire to start sericulture and they were supported by the Central Silk Board and the concerned state governments. The Central Silk Board and the governments helped them to emerge as successful sericulturists through the efforts of technical staffs of extension units of research and extension officials of state department. Sri Lakul of Nagapur village of Beed District in Maharashtra was one of these farmers who took up sericulture from 2002 with 1.0 acre of M5 under irrigation facility. He was able to add 1 acre under V1 mulberry garden with CPP's support, enabling him to construct rearing house of 100 dfls capacity and obtaining 55 kg/100 100 dfls. CPP provided him with separate rearing house, power sprayers for disinfection, drip irrigation to conserve water, and plastic collapsible chandrike to mount matured larvae. Source

Low and unsteady returns from agricultural crops caused Shri Hanuman Yadav of Gonda district in Uttar Pradesh to take to sericulture. Backed with technical intervention from REC, Gonda and support from the DOS, his returns from seri-activities increased significantly in a short span of time. The authors narrate his success story.

Natural disinfectants play a vital role in tasar culture in Orissa, where farmers use extracts of different medicinal plants for disinfection during grainage and rearing. Farmers practicing Bogal rearing collect the wild eggs from the forest and disinfect them with phyto-extracts prepared from turmeric and bakhara powder in a proportion of 2:1. Bakhara is an ethnological preparation, commonly used in the production of rice beer by the tribals of Orissa, Jharkhand, Bihar, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal. Although, only one crop is possible in a year, most of the tasar farmers are interested in their rearing, as it ensures success of a crop, having an effective rate of rearing of 68-76%. Pharmacological application of different medicinal plants in tasar culture is a primitive practice. The different traditional customs and traditions followed by the farmers during tasar silkworm grainage and rearing have some scientific base. Source

The concept of community rearing is relatively a new concept in sericulture. Research Extension Centre, Hoshangabad in association with DOS, Hoshangabad and CSR&TI, Mysore propagated sericulture through community rearing in Babai block of Hoshangabad district in Madhya Pradesh during August 2010 exclusively for OBC/SC/ST women through Self Help Groups, which proved a success.
