Efficiency of integrated rice, fish and duck polyculture as compared to rice and fish culture in a selective area of Khulna District, Bangladesh

Efficiency of integrated rice, fish and duck polyculture as compared to rice and fish culture in a selective area of Khulna District, Bangladesh

Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences 7(4): 468-471

A study was conducted in Batyaghata sub-districts, Khulna, Bangladesh in 2000 to observe how three different components of rice (cv, Zotai), duck and fish in a polyculture system benefit from each other. The study was conducted in a land size of 0.087 ha, which was divided into two parts measuring 0.058 and 0.029 ha. In the larger part (0.058 ha) ducks and fishes were introduced along with rice. Rice and fishes were cultured in the rest of the land.
