20 ha, 5 farm ponds, 2 bore wells and one bore well with Drip irrigation unit.Through IFS with the agriculture components of trees banana – 600 Nos. Amla – 45 Nos. annual moringa – 1 Acre. Mango – 50 Nos.

Technologies adopted

Through IFS with the agriculture components of trees banana – 600 Nos. Amla – 45 Nos. annual moringa – 1 Acre. Mango – 50 Nos. Citrus – 15Nos. Goats 50 nos,  poultry bapkok - 100Nos. fourway cross – 100 Nos. fish pond and fodder grass CO4 cultivation.

Impact due to Technological intervention

          He is a progressive farmer having knowledge on not only IFS but also other crop cultivation rice, pulses, vegetables etc., He also the first person in Nagapattinam to adopt SRI with the advice of the scientist TRRI, Aduthurai and practicing since 2001. He used to get the net profit of 65,000 / ha only from the commercialized cropping system of rice – rice – blackgram. But after the intervention through KVK, Sikkal and his more involvement he emerged as a model farmer of adopting IFS suited to the low land rice system.

He is getting the net profit 2,79,000/- per acre / year as compared to Rs. 26,000/- per / acre / year under conventional crop cultivation alone.

Lessons learnt

Novel feeding of pulses haulm to goats without spillage / wastage install fed method, Skill of all available resource management more efficiently  

 Spreading success to other farmers or farmers groups

          Initially 20 farmers were taken to KVK, Namakkal and skill were developed on Stall fed method of goat farming through exposure visit and. Hybrid goats were distributed to farmers in technology week at KVK, Sikkal during 2010. This method was started by  Mr. G. Jeevanantham, Nangudi village, Kilvelur block. During On campus training on IFS, the farmers were taken to Nangudi village through exposure visit.

At present about 75 farmers are following the stall fed method of goat farming.

Technologies adopted:

Being a farmer growing rice and pulse crop, he could not able to generate good remuneration. Moreover, he had struggled a lot and he used to fight against natural calamities viz., flood, drought etc. After establishment of KVK at Sikkal in 2004, he used to visit KVK to get knowledge and training on vegetables cultivation techniques.. Then switched over to vegetable cultivation and medicinal crop gloriosa. He used to get knowledge and training on hybrid vegetable cultivation techniques and get expertise from exposure visits on precision farming to Dharmapuri, Krishinagri Districts. Then started cultivating hybrid vegetables such us tomato, chillies  with protray nursery techniques and periodical spray of Triacontanol for increasing flowering and fruit setting etc.,

Impact due to Technological intervention

From an area of half an acre, he had taken the highest yield of 16 tonnes of hybrid tomato Lakshmi. He got the per plant yield of 2 kg green chillies Priyanka hybrid chillies. He is also getting more than Rs. 50,000 net profit per year from vegetables and more than Rs.25,000 through gloriosa cultivation.  Net income Rs.75,000/- per year

Lessons learnt

Off season growing of hybrid vegetables with protray nursery techniques and regular use of growth regulators like triacontanol.

Spreading success to other farmers or farmers groups

          During On and Off campus training on Hi tech vegetable cultivation, the farmers were taken to Veerankudikadu village through exposure visit. More than 100 farmers are growing hybrid vegetables like Tomato( Lakshmi)
