Integrated Farming System Model by integration of fish and water chestnut with fox nut was developed in 50 ha of land in Darbhanga district. The net benefit from the system was recorded at Rs. 68,545 (1,26,505 – 57,960) as compared to traditional system i.e. fox nut production alone. Field based system of Makhana cultivation was standardized with other crops like fish, rice and water chestnut in cropping system mode The gross return from Fox nut-fish, Fox nut-rice and Fox nut-water chestnut was obtained as Rs. 2,82,810, 2,73,840 and 3,54,340 per ha, respectively while a gross return of Rs. 1,32,552 was obtained from Fox nut cultivation alone. The highest benefit cost ratio was recorded with Fox nut-water chestnut combination (1.79) followed by Fox nut-fish combination in field system of Fox nut cultivation under integrated farming system model.

Keywords: Fox nut, Integrated farming system, Water chestnut, Fishes, Pond and agricultural fields.
