This is an integrated model for farming. The waste of kitchen is utilized as feed for rabbit and waste of rabbit is used as feed in fish pond and vegetable garden. Hence no expense on fertilizer and feeds

The donation and food supply can’t make the earthquake self-reliant in the long run. The government also is not in the situation to create the job for all of them. Hence agriculture is the only option to make them self-reliant on the long term. In my model every component is interlinked. It’s very simple and self-sustaining model. The waste of rabbit is as food source for the fish and vegetable garden. The kitchen waste is used as feed source for the rabbit, hence very low cost of rearing. And rabbit is not that much infected by disease and insect so the management is also very simple for the farmers. One female and two male rabbit can produce around 50 kg of meat per year. The tomato farming gives economical yield for 6 months (Srijana variety under poly house). The water in the pond will be available for the vegetable garden in the water scarce period so the production of vegetables will also be higher. Fish can be consumed in home or sold in the market as well.

Assumptions;

family size:4

Total rabbits: 1 female 2 male

Pond area: 100 m square

Tomato production area: 7 by 4 m square

vegetabel gareden: 200 m squre

In addition of this there will also be marginal area for production of grasses for feeding rabbit or other livestock, which is of low concern here

Business Plan

Estimated Human Resources :

a total of 8 people or 2 household will be required. this model is being developed for the rural community so in commercial scale with proper skill the number of people will be less.


Purpose :

the purpose of this business plan is to develop an agriculture model which is less technical as well as cheap and utilizes the locally avilable materials. For the feed local vegetetation and kitchen waste will be used which will reduce the cost of feed.


Problem :

Solution :

  • To introduce meat of high quality with required minerals and vitamins ( as in rabbit and fish meat)
  • Introduction of fast growin rabbit cum fish model in village which will produce higher rate of return
  • since there is no commercial feed involved, this model is relatively cheap
