  • Strawberry farming proves to be a big hit in West Bengal

    Siliguri, Feb 15 (ANI): Farmers in West Bengal were yielding profits from strawberry cultivation. Strawberry farming has become a hit among villagers of Patiramjote area in Siliguri district.

He added that demand rose within short span of time, which also resulted in good money. A strawberry expert was invited to West Bengal to see if strawberry farming was possible in the state.

  • Farmer's Success Story | Canning | West Bengal NAIP

    Kanai was just a traditional farmer of Chandkhali village in Canning, West Bengal. He had some land and a very small ditch at one corner. The land was mono-cropped with rice in Kharif and the small ditch was used mostly for washing and other domestic purposes as well as a little fish cultivation. With the initiatives of NAIP Shri Mridha adopted integrated farming since 2010. NAIP helped him renovate his small ditch for integrated farming. Now he is cultivating improved varieties of rice. His farm products are sold directly from his farm or in the local market. He has increased his annual income from a meagre Rs.3500 to Rs.22000. Many farmers from nearby villages often visit his integrated multipurpose farm making Kanai feel very proud.

Animals (frequently buffaloes) fresh in milk or just before calving are purchased from the rural areas and transported to the cities where they are kept under zero-grazing conditions. All feed is purchased and at the end of the lactation the animals are generally slaughtered. Unit size varies from around 10 to over 100 lactating animals, also milk colonies with thousands of animals occur. An attractive market within the large urban population for a perishable product like milk is one of the reasons that an urban production system has developed: it considerably shortens the distance between the milking animal and the consumer, thereby reducing the risk of spoilage and marketing cos...

LIKE VIDEO, SUBSCRIBE THE CHANNEL Large scale (peri-)urban dairy farming is mainly important in South Asia. Animals (frequently buffaloes) fresh in milk or just before calving are purchased from the rural areas and transported to the cities where they are kept under zero-grazing conditions. All feed is purchased and at the end of the lactation the animals are generally slaughtered. Unit size varies from around 10 to over 100 lactating animals, also milk colonies with thousands of animals occur. An attractive market within the large urban population for a perishable product like milk is one of the reasons that an urban production system has developed: it considerably shortens the distance between the milking animal and the consumer, thereby reducing the risk of spoilage and marketing cost. The availability of cheap by-products from the food processing industry is another for the existence of this system. The system is increasing in importance in and around cities in many developing countries. The large volumes of waste can cause soil, water and air pollution. Most effects are caused by emissions from manure in the form of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and various heavy metals. Emissions from manure in the stables, during storage, after application on soils or when manure is simply disposed of. Losses depend on the system of housing and manure management. Sometimes there is a ready market for the solid manure from near-by vegetable growers. Urine and wastewater is disposed of through the public sewage system or it simply seeps into the ground water or is discharged on the surface water. The livestock in the city areas are also a hygienic and sanitary hazard. The livestock causes a bad smell which is a nuisance especially in residential areas. In this form large-scale dairy production the best dairy animals (buffaloes and cattle) are purchased from the rural areas, milked as long as possible in the city and subsequently slaughtered. This is a permanent drain on the genetic quality of the livestock in the rural areas and these genetic resources are gradually being eroded resulting in a serious loss of animal genetic resources. The following matrix indicates the most common Industrial risks associated with urban/ peri-urban dairy farming.

A typical small scale farming project starts with 5 units = 5 pair = 10 Emu's. In farm conditions it has been noticed that Emu's breed freely if the ratio of female to male is 1:1. To maximise profits some businessmen recommended clients to follow the ratio of 7:3, but it is not recommended by us. Breeding Emus form breeding pairs during the summer months of December and January, and may remain together for about five months. Mating occurs in the cooler months of Oct to March. During the breeding season, males experience hormonal changes, including an increase in luteinizing hormone and testosterone levels, and their testicles double in size. The female emu on very 2nd or 3rd day lays one of an average of 11 (maximum up to 20eggs) very large, eggs. A bird can lay 20-60 eggs in a season. The male becomes broody after his mate starts lying, and begins to incubate the eggs before the laying period is complete. From this time on, he does not eat, drink or defecate, over eight weeks of incubation, he will lose a third of his weight and will survive only on stored body-fat and on any morning dew that he can reach from the nest. Incubation takes 45 days. Newly hatched chicks are active and can leave the nest within a few days. They stand about 25 centimeters tall and have distinctive brown and cream stripes for camouflage, which fade after three months or so. Chicks grow very quickly and are full-grown in 12--14 months; they may remain with their family group for another six months or so before they split up to breed in their second season These are the questions which you may ask how to start emu bird farming, emu farming in punjab, emu farming in tamilnadu, how to start emu farming in india, emu farming india, emu business about emu birds business emu farming business in india emu breeding emu farming in rajasthan, emu farming in karnataka, emu farming in kerala, about emu farming emu bird project emu farming in bangalore emu farms in tamilnadu how to start emu farming emu farming in andhra pradesh emu farming in india emu farms in india emu birds emu farms in bangalore emu farm australia emu birds farming in india emu farm in kerala emu farming in chennai australian emu about emu farming in india,emu bird breeding in india Music Credit : Sprite and the Wanderer Music by Dan-O at DanoSongs.com
