Integrated Farming System Is Sustainable & Gives Profit
Sri Jai Shankar Kumar, Village – Tetari, Block- Dandari, Begusarai, aged 48 years, is a progressive and innovative farmer and is a post graduate (chemistry). Total cultivable land available with the family is approximately 4 ha. Earlier, he used to grow conventional crops like rice, maize, wheat as well as coarse grains, but the low monetary returns induced his family to search options for better returns.
Jai Shankar attended various trainings/ awareness programmes/camps and interacted with the scientists of Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Begusarai. He was convinced by Integrated Farming System to address his problem. He integrated with technical backstopping of KVK on Fishery, horticulture, animal husbandary, vermi-compost, birds rearing and agronomical crops under Integrated Farming line. He established a fish pond over an area of about 0.5 ha. In same pond, he is also doing pearl farming in fresh water. Looking at his interest and dedication in vermi-compost production, Department of Agriculture, Govt. of Bihar provided him financial support in tune of Rs. 25 Lakh for large scale vermi-compost production and he is currently producing more than 3000 Metric tons of vermi-compost per annum. Besides, Department of Horticulture supported him with poly house and other inputs for off season vegetable cultivation and raising of seedlings for early supply in the market. Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Begusarai, supported him technically in all his endeavors. Scientists of KVK, Begusarai give suggestion for improvement and up gradation of his IFS model.
