Abstract:

Paddy is important cereal crop of Andhra Pradesh state, particularly East and West Godavari is considered as Rice bowl of Andhra Pradesh. It is cultivated under wide range of soils and climatic conditions. It is grown in black soils as well as heavy clay loam soils. In East Godavari district total rice production area is 4.23/ha. The major varieties grown in Ramchandrapuram mandal are MTU-1010, PLU-1100. More than 70% of the Indian farming community own less than one hectare of land. They belong to the category of small and marginal farmers. Such farmers feel that, except going for a single cropping system (like Paddy in canal irrigated lands, Groundnut in rainfed areas) there is hardly any possibility of trying new practices or methods for farm improvement. To address the needs of sustainable farming of such small and marginal farmers, an integrated farming model has been developed with low cost. The model emphasize the significance of four important sectors i.e., Agriculture, Fisheries, Horticulture and Animal Husbandry thus highlighting the concept of integrating one with another in assuring better yields and results to farmers who are eking their livelihood in these sectors. This model has been tried out in the field of the beneficiary farmer Sri G. Venkateswara Babu Rao, resident of Kapavaram village & mandal of Ramachandrapuram block, East Godavari District.
