9. On-Farm TESTING to be conducted:

ON-FARM TESTING-I

Assessment of Jayanti Rohu (Genetically improved Rohu) in composite fish culture system in seasonal fish pond in Murshidabad district.

1.

Problem area

:

Due to low slower growth of normal Rohu

2.

Important cause

:

  1. It is similar to normal Rohu but grows much faster than the normal Rohu.
  2. It gives 17% more growth per generation

3.

Production system

:

Seasonal pond based culture system.

4.

Micro-farming situation

:

IMC culture in pond

5.

Technology for testing

:

First Genetically improved fish species Jayanti Rohu culture in composite fish culture system

6.

Existing practice

:

Normal Rohu culture in composite fish culture system.

7.

Objectives

:

To assess the total fish production in pond based culture system.

8.

Hypothesis

:

Culture of Jayanti Rohu may increase the system production

9.

Treatment details

:

Farmers' practice: Composite fish culture system with indiscriminate ratio of stocking of fry and fingerlings.(Catla + Normal Rohu + Mrigal)

Technology Option  I

Composite fish culture system (3:4:3 or 4:3:3 Recommended stocking density) surface feeder : column feeder : bottom feeder (Catla + Normal Rohu + Mrigal)

Technology Option  II

Composite fish culture system (3:4:3 or 4:3:3) surface feeder : column feeder : bottom feeder (Catla + Jayanti Rohu + Mrigal)

ON-FARM TESTING-II

Assessment of freshwater pearl culture in freshwater mussel (Lanellidlens marginalis) in small and medium sized seasonal fish pond in Murshidabad district.

1.

Problem area

:

Due to lack of knowledge and technology transformation

2.

Important cause

:

  1. To enhance the livelihood of aquaculture farmers
  2. To have substitute farming option with the traditional farming so as to tackle the losses due to draughts and floods
  3. Possible to mixed aquaculture farming
  4. Require very cost effective supplementary feeding

3.

Production system

:

Seasonal pond based culture system.

4.

Micro-farming situation

:

IMC culture in pond

5.

Technology for testing

:

It can be done as a mixed culture/ semi-intensive farming option for the traditional farmers

6.

Existing practice

:

IMC culture in  fish pond

7.

Objectives

:

  1. To assess the total production and to have substitute farming option with the traditional farming so as to tackle the losses due to draughts and floods.

8.

Hypothesis

:

Freshwater pearl  may increase the system production

9.

Treatment details

:
