Buffalo Bulletin | Year: 2017

An extensive survey was made to collect the information on buffalo husbandry practices in the Panchmahals district of central Gujarat through specially designed questionnaires on buffalo husbandry practices. Buffaloes were reared under intensive and semi intensive system of management. They were allowed for grazing on forage and foliage along with the road side, community land, forest land and fallow field for 4 to 6 h daily in rainy season in the year when green grasses are available. Only 27.08% and 15.42% of the farmers regularly fed common salt and mineral mixture respectively. Majority (72.08%) of the respondent fed concentrate to lactating buffaloes after the milking and 81.25% respondent fed concentrate mixture as a special ration to advance pregnant buffaloes.It was also observed that 95.41% of the respondent resorted to Artificial Insemination and 82.08% inseminate their buffaloes at mid heat stage. Majority (85%) farmer’s believed in quick treatment for anestrous/repeater animals and 69.58% buffalo’s rearers followed pregnancy diagnosis. It was also observed that 73.74% of the respondent got treated their sick animal by live stock inspector/veterinary doctor. Regarding vaccination against foot-and mouth disease and hemorrhagic septicemia disease 76.25% of the respondents got vaccination their animals. Majority 63.75% of the buffalo’s keeper isolated their sick animals from healthy animals. © 2017, Kasetsart University. All rights reserved.

An experiment was carried out at KVK-Panchmahal, ICAR-CIAH, Godhra, Gujarat during 2014 and 2015 at fve farmer's orchards to fnd out the impact of RDF, biofertilizers and mulching on yield and qualitative attributes of mango (Mangifera indica L.) cv. Kesar in semi-arid conditions. Among the four treatments combinations, the maximum plant height (68%), stem girth (14.20%) and plant spread E-W (11.14%) and N-S (11.16%), yield (33.67 kg/plant and 52.52 q/ha), TSS (16.290 brix), reducing (5.56 %), non-reducing (10.34 %) and total sugar (15.89%) was recorded when the plant treated with 75 % RDF + Azotobactor + PSB, each 250 g/plant) + mulching with grasses/straw @15 kg dry grass/sq m (T3) followed by RDF + mulching with grasses/straw @15 kg dry grass/sqm (T4), RDF (Recommended dose of manure (70 kg) and fertilizers @ N 1000g, P 750g and K 750 g/plant (T2) and control (T1). The maximum acidity (1.28 %) was recorded in T1 followed by T2 (1.19%) and T4 (0.75 %) and it was minimum in T 3 (0.65%). The maximum cost of cultivation (13 154/ha) was recorded in T2 and T4 followed by 12 686/ha in T3 and the same was minimum in T 1 (10 346/ha). The highest net returns (41 831/ha) and cost beneft ratio (4.91) was computed in T3 followed by T4 (39 831.40/ha and 3.33), T2 (25 736.80/ha and 2.96) and T1 (12 999.40/ha and 2.26). Results of the study revealed that the application of RDF (75%) + Azotobactor (250 g/plant) + PSB (250 g/plant)+mulching with grasses/straw (15 kg dry grass/sq m) were found to be more effective and can be applied to improve the vegetative growth, yield and quality of Kesar mango fruits. However, the application of RDF with grass mulching was also found to be better than bare RDF.

The present study was conducted in Godhra, Kalol and Ghoghmba talukas of Panchmahals district of central Gujarat, to popularize the improved green fodder production technology. Constrains in hybrid Napier production were identified though participatory approach. Preferential ranking technique was utilized to identify the constraints faced by the farmers in hybrid Napier production. The results revealed that lack of suitable high yielding varieties, lack of technical knowledge and less availability of irrigation water were the three most important factors which inhibited the adoption of HYVs of hybrid Napier in Panchmahals district of Gujarat. The yield of green fodder from hybrid Napier in demonstration was 970 q/h as compared local check (665 q/h). The percentage increase in the yield over local check was 45.86. Economic analysis of the yield performance revealed that front line demonstrations recorded higher gross returns (67 900/ha) and net return (40 500/ha) with higher benefit ratio (2.48) as compared to (2.03) local checks. Farmers mean knowledge score had increased significantly by 32.42 after implementation of frontline demonstrations. The impact of FLD was also analyzed which showed that there was significant improvement in knowledge level and satisfaction on the part of farmers.

The present study the efficacy of technological intervention on production potential of diversified farming system was conducted at Godhra, Kalol, Halol and Lunawara Talukas of Panchmahals district of Central Gujarat during the year 2010-12. Seven components like maize, fodder, vegetables, fruit crops, dairy, goatry and poultry were considered for study. Keeping these aspects in view, the influence of technological intervention on scientific farming system with comparisons to traditional farming system was worked out. The average land holding of selected farmers was 1.22 ha. Results of the study revealed that the production of maize, fodder, vegetables, fruit crops, dairy, goatry and poultry under scientific farming system was significantly influenced as compared to traditional farming system. The percentage increase in the production of maize, hybrid Napier and lucerne, tomatoes, chilly, brinjal, fruits, milk and egg in scientific farming system was recorded 47.2, 45.52, 37.32, 41.46, 41.66, 65.99, 37.25 and 152.29 respectively over traditional system. Similarly the average net return and cost benefit ratio was also computed significantly higher in scientific than traditional farming system. Overall observations after integrating different components of farming system, it may inferred that the production, productivity, economic returns, balance nutrition along with better employment can be improved by adopting diversified farming system under semi-arid ecosystem of western India which have not only alleviated the socio-economic condition of farmers, but also provided sustainability in productivity by following of various scientific technologies over traditional farming.
