Field experiments were conducted during the wet and dry seasons of 2004-05 and 2005-06 to
study the influence of fish cum poultry on the productivity and sustainability of rice-rice system.
The treatments consisted of five rice-fish-poultry models compared with conventional rice -rice
system. The mean data revealed that rice-fish-poultry integrated farming system recorded higher
growth, yield and yield attributes during both the years over the conventional system of ricerice.
Among different models, rice + fish (pit dug at the centre of the rice field) - Poultry (reared
separately) recorded the highest system productivity (9118 kg/ha/year) and Sustainable yield
index (89.2%) followed by rice + fish (pit dug at one side of the rice field and connected by
trenches) - Poultry reared in the cage above the fish pit (8697 kg/ha/year and 84.2%, respectively)
and rice + fish (pit dug at one side of the rice field) - Poultry reared in the cage above the fish
pit (8533 kg/ha/year and 81%, respectively).
