Bihar is an agriculture state most of the people invilved in agriculture related activities the soils of Bihar are light, alluvium derived soils mostly khaddar (recent alluvium) and hanger (Old alluvium). In many areas the soils are deep, loamy and high in organic matter content and hence very suitable for intensive cultivation.

The state has high irrigation potential since water table is high and number of rivers drain through the area. 

Rice-Wheat cropping system dominates in Bihar as farmers concentrate primarily on that. Productivity is an important issue as the average rice yield in this region was found between 1,900–2,100 kg/ha and that of wheat between 2,740–2,770 kg/ha. However, according to the projections of Rice–Wheat Consortium, with good management it has a potential of giving more than twice the current yield.

Bihar has good climatic condition there are three seasons’ hot summer (April–June), hot and humid rainy season (July–October) and cool dry winter (November–March). 

The growing period of crop ranges from 180–210 days in a year. Two crops are common but with irrigation, third crop can also be taken during summer. The annual rainfall in the region is appreciable, ranging between 1,050–1,300 mm.

The region has a number of ICAR Research Institutes and their Regional Stations, Agricultural Universities, Centers of All India Coordinated Research Projects, and Krishi Vigyan Kendras to support the current and ensuing programmes

Bihar has very good potential for quality seed production of field crops, fruits and vegetables and agriculture laborers are available at cheaper rate.

What is process job in bihar block

by Jitendra Sharma

Well based on the complexity of questions from constitution, Current affairs, Science and economics ....with an additional option E, it can be said that CUT O FF for General Should be around 80-82....Even many other site including VISION IAS has also speculated the cut off around 84 for General !!

by Surovi

ye jo log 90-92 ki baaten kar rahen unhe khud pata nahi ki what is the right answer for all question. No website has so far given correct solution for all question. I agree with surovi. Th cut off this time should go even lower than last year around 82-84 for general!!

my dob is -12/02/92 my exam centre is in tilaya on 18 dec but i had lost my admit card so plz give my roll no. atleast so i check the result.

by Rohit Kumar

I guess cut off this time should not exceed 85 for general category. Option Ewas very confusing.science was really the most tougest part. !!

by Bandana

at least 10-15 solutions given on the website is absolutely wrong. even most of the answers of science part are also wrongly given by VISION IAS. MY expectation for PT cut off this year should be around 84-85 for general cat. 78-81 For bc . Hardly 100-200 candidate would be able to score 90-95. so the common basis of cut off should linger around 85-82 for general Cat.
