Success Stories-2

i. Thematic area: Integrated farming system
ii. Title: Paddy cum fish cum live stock farming

iii)Introduction: In the district in some areas ample scope is available for cultivation of paddy cum fish along with live stock and horticulture. So KVK introduced the technology for the first time in the district.

iii. Out come:
 Earlier there was no such type of practice throughout the district. Rice (Bahadur/Ranjit/Lahi variety) was shown in the month of May /June and harvested in October-December. Approximate 6-6.5ton/ ha rice has been harvested from the trial area which is 1- 1.5 ton/ ha more in comparison to normal field result. Average fish growth has been found 350 gms (150gm – 850gm) in 180 days. Ducks also grown in the rice field , male ducks ( average 2.5 - 3.5 kg/duck) were sold for meat purpose, Eggs also (rs.10/pc) gave a good return. Fish and duck meats are very preferred among the districts and KVK has successfully introduced the technology and grown up to 8-10 hac area.

Rs. @10/kg = 50,000/

6-6.5 ton/hac

Rs. @10/kg = 65,000/


Fish (IMC)/grass carp/ common carp




Rs. @120/kg = 60,000/


Duck- Khaki Campbell



Duck meat- 70-100kg
And egg- 700-800

And egg Rs. @10/pc = 8,000/


Total Income


Rs. 50,000/


Rs. 1,43,000/

Now a days this has been accepted by the local farmers and the technology is spreading and expanded upto 12-15 hac area.
