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 time...it 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 application of a clay slurry mixed with vegetative matter. The sides should also be stabilised by planting Khus grass.

Point After 3cycles of dumping/taking compost from the pit...pit will attain a saturation point to hold water...then pit become farm pond. Without using black plastic sheet..we can follow this method.

If you use the same pit for both preparation of farm yard manure in the beginning without lining the pit either with plastic or with a clay hay mixture you stand a chance of losing the leachate due to seepage. However, this pit could be used for storage of run off water later and a new pit has to be made for preparation of farm yard manure.

The above can be addressed as below dig pit...start keeping waste in the month of October (winter) take manure before June(monsoon). Check if the pit is holding rain water or not in rainy season. If not dump again.

If your soil does not have sufficient clay, you can import heavy clay from another place
1.Normally, most of the villages will have pilgrimage centres and along with them, they will have ponds, tanks etc which stores water and which is used for the temple as well as for the common use.
Regardless of the possibility that there are no pilgrimage centres around, certainly there will be lakes, tanks or other sources of water storage.  This is a fantastic source of nutrient rich soil as most of the water that arrives in this place carry with them the top soil from many places and deposit them here.
2. With the permission from the governing bodies, collected not more than 15-30 cms of top soil from the pond, tank etc.  By doing this, you will allow the water storage structure to retain more water.
3.Spread the top soil collected from the ponds, tanks etc on your place to improve your soil.
4. The top soil needs to be taken out only after sufficient amount of top soil has been collected in the ponds, tanks etc.

Recycling Waste/ polluted water
There is a popular culture called duck weed culture.Waste water recycles using plants...Spirodella, wulphia, lemna are the plants that can clean waste water...This water can be used for farming...
Waste water was filled in a pond. Then these floating plants are released in that pond...with in no time these plants spread around the pond...With 2-7 days water will be cleaned by these plants...These plants will give more oxygen to that water by removing harmful heavy metals...Grass carp & herbivorous fishes will survive in these waste waters by eating those plants...
Orissa govt is the 1st govt in India to implement duck weed culture in Bhubaneswar city.

Five Layer Shri Palekar Ji Model - 36*36 model for full 1 acre

Huge trees, for example, Mango, Jack-fruit, Jamun, and Amla ought to be planted 36 feet separated.
Guava, Chikku, Lemon and Pomegranate saplings can be planted in the middle of the mango plants at a separation of 18 feet.
Papaya, Drum-stick, Banana that involve lesser space ought to be planted in a space of 9 feet between the second arrangement of trees recorded previously. The above plants ought to be planted along a similar column over the plot of land leaving space to develop a single assortment of vegetables, millets and so forth on each bed.
separate 1 section of land into a break even with squares of 36ft X 36ft. In each piece of 36 ft x 36 ft ( which is additionally separated into four 9ft X 9ft sub-squares) We can grow around 170 trees, in that 9ft x 9 ft part of the land (one sub-square). Plant 1 Banana Tree, 4 Arecanut Trees, 4 Black pepper Creepers getting on Arecanut trees, 2 Coffee Plants, 2 Glirsedia Trees, 2 Venella Creepers hopping on Glirsedia trees and 32 Ginger Plants …

Dhabolkar method of green manuring

Mr.Dhabolkar, an organic farming expert in Maharashtra, has proved the efficacy of green manure method, which helps to return to the soil many times more nutrients than what we take from that same soil. The first step, therefore, to enrich the soil organically is to grow a variety of crops on the land and then plough the green matter back into the soil. Using this method it is possible to enrich the depleted soil in just two hundred days. Even land that has been depleted of all nutrients due to chemical farming can be resuscitated in this manner.By growing the following crops for 50-60 days and then ploughing them in-situ we add balanced nutrients and micro-nutrients to the land. The soil will become enriched in less than a year and micro-nutrient deficiency is eliminated.

The following quantities will suffice for one acre.
Choose four of each of the following types:(One from category total five)

1. Grains: 5Kg (Example: 1 kg Sorghum, 500 gms Pearl millet, 250 gms Foxtail millet, 250 gms …

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…
