How are farmers doing integrated farming?
According to DD Kisan, farmers are doing integrated farming in a village falling in Ranchi district, capital of Jharkhand. They are growing flowers and vegetable crops along with paddy on five acres of land. Apart from this, fish farming, poultry, goat rearing and milk production are also being done here. Farmers tell that they also rent agricultural equipment to needy farmers. It also makes income.
According to the farmer who cultivates, there are many benefits of different crops, flowers, vegetables and animal husbandry on five acres of land. They say that there is no shortage of fodder for animals. Compost manure is made from their cow dung, which reduces the cost of farming. Sowing of different crops increases the fertilizer power of the farm and yields are higher, thereby increasing the earnings.
