Krishi Vigyan Kendra - Jhajjar is going to be the first center in the state, where a live model of livestock-based Integrated Farming System has been established. Not only the farmer community, but the general public will also be able to understand the usefulness of the system. The exhibition unit will have a set-up of 14 different units including a cow rearing exhibition. The units in the region could become a milestone as the land hoarding has now reduced.
Commenting on the development, Dr. Umesh Sharma, Coordinator, Krishi Vigyan Kendra-Jhajjar, said, "The model of the livestock-based integrated farming system has been established at Krishi Vigyan Kendra located at Badli Road, Jhajjar. Cow rearing exhibition unit, earthworm manure, goat rearing units, beekeeping, and biogas units have been established in the center."
"Through this unit, farmers will be called on the spot and will be explained how they can do farming and animal husbandry together, along with other works, which can increase their income. Along with this, they will also be told how to obtain more remunerative prices by improving the quality of food items," adds Sharma.
