Abstract:
In India the system of integrated farming with various components has gained momentum due to higher production and income. In Manipur, integration of pig with fish as a major component is practiced. A case study was conducted including a farmer of Khabi Bamdiar village of Imphal West district of Manipur adopting integrated pig - fish farming. The innovation made by the farmer is found to be acceptable with few modifications. The practice is socially, ecologically and economically viable. The farmer has been making a net profit of ₹ 1433242 in the first year and then ₹ 2565242 from second year onward form his 3.5 ha of land i.e. ₹ 732923 ha-1 yr-1 from this integrated approach. This technique may be promoted to improve the present level of farm production in the state of Manipur and in the country where fish remain as a major commodity for local consumption.
