Abstract

Integrated farming system is a valuable approach to addressing the problems of sustainable economic growth for farming communities. The integration of aquaculture with duck and poultry birds in pond site along with crop farming offers greater efficiency in resource utilization with production of addition food and income. The system involves recycling of waste or by products of one farming system as inputs for another compatible system and ensures efficient utilization of available farm space for maximising production. Women’s role and participation has often been ignored partly due to socio-cultural taboo against them. The present paper therefore, highlights that fisherwomen play a critical role in sorting of fish fingerlings, feeding of animals reared in ponds and of vegetable and fruit trees. Active help from local governments and mass literacy campaigns are very much needed to upgrade the knowledge of fisherwomen and skill.
