Navadhanya Cropping System

NAVADHANYA has not introduced by anybody from his/her own experiences and knowledge. It has evolved, by following the climatic conditions; district farmers were cultivated dryland agriculture in the district. With the erratic rainfall every year the farmers are facing drought in the district. Even though in erratic rainfall also the dry land agriculture is sustained in the district during the past. With experiences in their life, the cropping system was evolved as NAVADHANYA a dryland agriculture system in the district. The NAVA DHANYA is an intercropping system in dryland agriculture. It has evolved to sustain crops in erratic rainfall by the farmer’s experiments. And also, it has evolved the system for trapping erratic rainfall and utilizing 100% to the crops. So, the farmers used the system as net of erratic rainfall in drought-prone areas for protecting at least 2/3 of the crops in their fields. The cropping system will keep the land greenery for 10 months in a year. So, the syste…

Flood Irrigation

Flood water system is an age-old technique for irrigating crops. It was likely the main type of water system utilized by people as they started developing crops and yet a standout amongst the most regular techniques for water system utilized today.
Simply, water is delivered to the field by channels, pipe, or some different means and water just stream over the ground to the crop. Despite the fact that flood water system is a viable strategy for the water system, but it is positively not proficient compared to different alternatives. With flood water system it is generally expected that lone portion of the water connected really winds up flooding the crop. The other half is lost to vanishing, spillover, penetration of uncultivated zones, and transpiration through the leaves of weeds.
In spite of the fact that flood water system will never be as productive as different sorts of water system there are a few procedures that can be utilized to enhance its proficiency:
Leveling fields – on the…

Drip irrigation

Drip water system includes dripping water onto the dirt at low rates (2-20 litres/hour) from an arrangement of little breadth plastic channels fitted with outlets called emitters or drippers. Water is connected near plants with the goal that exclusive piece of the dirt in which the roots develop is wetted, dissimilar to surface and sprinkler water system, which includes wetting the entire soil profile. With drip water system, water applications are more regular (normally every 1-3 days) than with different techniques and this gives an ideal high dampness level in the dirt in which plants can prosper.
Drip water system framework releases water to the crop utilizing a system of mainlines, sub-mains and sidelong lines with outflow focuses dispersed along their lengths. Each dripper/emitters, opening supplies a deliberate, decisively controlled uniform use of water, supplements, and other required development substances straightforwardly into the root zone of the plant.
Water and supplement…

Pot Irrigation

With a bit of arranging, Pots are a reasonable and effective watering system for your garden. This is especially valid for gardens in more blazing and drier atmospheres, as Pots decrease the measure of water lost to evaporation.For voyagers, Pots give a brief time of straightforward garden water system. 
Pots commonly have a substantial, round base and a since quite a while ago necked gush with a ⅕-inch to 3-inch opening. The base is the vessel that stores water for consistent and constant watering, while the neck is utilized to refill the base vessel. Fundamentally, a Pot is made of low-fired, unglazed clay soil. Rather than planting in the Pot, you plant around it and fill the Pot with water. 
In the garden, Pots act as water suppliers. After some time the Pot gradually releases water to the encompassing plants. 
How it functions : 
In an unglazed pot, this dampness will end up noticeably accessible to plant roots outside the pot. Roots will detect the dampness and basically suck it fro…

Making farm pond without using plastic lining

Making farm pond without using plastic lining  Manure pit : Point Manuring fields make fields potent and fertile just as cow milk, ghee which make men potent and vital. Every farmer needs to dig a large pit and pour all weeds, vegetable wastes, ash, peels, dry matter, animal dungs etc...over a period of will become manure to use on the field. A pit should be dug at the low land where rain water collects.
The manure pit should be dug on high land and out of the path of water to prevent leaching of valuable nutrients. It should be protected from rain and the sun by an overhead canopy. The pit needs to be lined with vegetative matter like leaves/ straw/ coir to help absorb excess moisture. The pit should have provision for good aeration so that composting proceeds uninterrupted.
The farm pond needs to be made by digging a large pit at the lowest point in the field where all seepage water flows. The sides and bottom of this pit need to be made impervious to water seepage by applicat…

Building Farm Pond

Building Farm Pond  This is how we plan a pond construction. One of the critical strategies to fight drought. Indeed, even numerous "popular" pond building ventures miss a lot of focuses in this and consequently can't be as helpful as they can be. Permaculture rocks! This is the means by which I approach making arrangements for a pond. 
You have to consider these: 
1. The amount Rainfall 
2. What kind of soil. (On the off chance that its clayey or anything less porous than sandy loam, runoff is around 1/3 of the rainfall). This gives conceivable pond sizes/volume conceivable per area. 
3. Distinguish catchment. This discloses to you where your dam can be with the goal that it can get the required volume (swales catch water and can redirect them into ponds on the contour). ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- At this point, you can roughly identify the contours/places where ponds are POSSIBLE. ----------------------------------------------…
