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. The expert pointed out four districts where strawberries could be grown and state's biotechnology department started working on it.

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.

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 cos...
