Title : Mixed Farming for Prosperity to small farmersWhile most of the educated youth these days want a white collar job after graduation, Mr Aditya Kumar Singh of Hariharpur village was attracted to farming. He firmly believed that crop cultivation alone would not provide him substantial income with 3 acre land to live a decent standard of life. He had to diversify his income and reduce risks to survive that were suggested to him in interaction with the scientist of the Krishi Vigyan Kendra. He has to undergo trainings on crop, poultry, goat, dairy, vermi-compost and fisheries.
Initiatives / Activities :
After being equipped with the technical expertise and the intricacies of management, vaccination, housing, feeding initially he went ahead with Goat farming. Presently he has 20 goats of Bengal, Beetal and Barbari. “Goat population increases rapidly and there are no substantial cost involved in rearing” he says to unemployed youth. Then he established a broiler unit of 500 flock size and a fish pond. The cow dung from cattle is used in the vermi-compost unit and the vermi-compost and poultry litter used in farm to improve soil. He is now doing diversification but in crop cultivation as well, cultivating paddy in kharif and wheat, maize, potato, mustard and coriander in rabi.
