Alem Tadesse Atsbeha and Yayneshet Tesfay Rural Poultry Production and Marketing mohammed ebrahim tadesse megersa and haile ketema integrating pond fish farming with poultry and vegetable production
Poultry production is an important sector in Ethiopia where chickens & their products are important sources of food and income. Backyard poultry production in Ethiopia represents a significant part of the national economy in general & the rural economy in particular. Chickens kept under backyard poultry production system considerably contributed to the cash income of the rural families in Northern Ethiopia. Ethiopian chickens are estimated to be over 56 million which are mainly local or indigenous breeds. The rural areas of Central Tigray are some of the potential areas for household based poultry production system & almost every household reared chickens for economic & social benefits. However, disease outbreak and lack of proper health care, poor housing system mainly in lowland agro-ecology & lack of extension service for indigenous ecotypes & seasonality of market prices were the main constraints of rural poultry production & marketing systems in the study area. Therefore, modern...

Francis Thommai Integrated fish fodder livestock farming mohammed ebrahim tadesse megersa and haile ketema integrating pond fish farming with poultry and vegetable production
Fish farmers in India are attempting to optimize their use of farm resources in order to maximize their returns.The cost of fish feed and pond fertilizers in aquaculture accounts for approximately 60% of total farm expenditures and these costs can be sharply reduced by integrating this system with other farming systems when it is appropriate to do so.Fish culture in India has undergone gradual change during the past few decades and there has recently been some movement to integrate livestock and crop farming. The benefits of integrated fish farming extend beyond improved fish production and include an increase in the production of livestock and eggs.Fodder and other horticultural crops grown on terraced embankments of fish ponds are used to feed livestock and fish and are also consumed by farm families ,while the increase in costs incurred to raise additional animals is offset by the sale of meat and eggs.Apart from providing fish,a mixed farming also provides a new way of...

Tadesse Megersa Substitution rate of sweet potato vines for concentrate mix on goat mohammed ebrahim tadesse megersa and haile ketema integrating pond fish farming with poultry and vegetable production
The exploitation of traditional crops, which often are grown with low inputs, and are largely adapted to the climatic conditions of the developing countries, would be a step towards better resource utilization. Available literature from research on sweet potato focused more on tuber yields with little or no attention paid to foliage yield and quality. Unfortunately, Information about feeding value, extent and evolution of feeding practices of vine as a feed source is not much known due to lack of knowledge about the crop, and its use for animal feed. Furthermore, information on supplementation of livestock diets with sweet potato vines in Ethiopia is not sufficient. Therefore, the current study was designed to evaluate the effect of substituting sweet potato vines with concentrate mix at increasing levels on feed intake, growth performance and carcass traits of Sidama goats.

Yilma Tadesse Sheep and Goats in Mixed Farming Systems mohammed ebrahim tadesse megersa and haile ketema integrating pond fish farming with poultry and vegetable production
Production objectives, management levels, production and reproduction performances, marketing and consumption aspects are the major broad parameters that can determine the benefits obtained and efficient utilization of sheep and goat resources. Hence, a better understanding of such variables is necessary to ensure sustainable production and maintain flock replacement. In addition, such understanding can result in exploitation of opportunities for development which could be technically feasible, economically viable and socio-culturally acceptable for the farmers. Besides, an overall improvement of the sub-sector cannot be achieved without the understanding of the above issues in relation to the existing farming systems in anywhere in the world. As it revolves on these major issues, this work provides important information for students, scientists, governmental and non-governmental organizations, institutional policy and decision makers, who are particularly interested in the...

Abdul-Aziz Mohammed and Nigussie Megersa Health Risks of Using DDT;Toxicity of Pesticides on Khat(Catha edulis) mohammed ebrahim tadesse megersa and haile ketema integrating pond fish farming with poultry and vegetable production
This book assesses possible health risk of using DDT on Khat and farmers’ perception towards toxicity of pesticides sprayed on Khat. Personal interviews were completed with a random and purposive sample of 70 farmers, 5 health workers/officers/ and 5 agricultural workers /officers/. The observed study shows there is no any personal protective device (PPD) in the woreda at all, most farmers in the study area have no access to technical information on proper use of pesticides. Results of interviews and questionnaires showed that majority of farmers in Haromaya area use DDT and other unknown pesticides to grow their Khat and majority of them mix DDT and other pesticides, especially malathion. Most of the farmers are illiterate and could not read and understand instruction on pesticides packages. Most of the interviewed farmers are chewers of Khat and have more than 10 years experience in spraying pesticides on Khat. Local markets, pesticides imported through smuggling, local health and...

Contract Farming for Production and Export of Vegetables in Bangladesh mohammed ebrahim tadesse megersa and haile ketema integrating pond fish farming with poultry and vegetable production
The study was designed to discuss the main features of contract vegetable production; to examine the vegetable supply chain, to estimate profitability of vegetables produced by contract and non-contract farmers and to estimate the effects of the key variables which are responsible for the production of different vegetables. Primary data collected from thirty samples of each category which were randomly selected from the study area, Chandina of Comilla district. The Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee (BRAC) has introduced the contract farming system of vegetables for export using the "centralized limited management contract" model with a verbal or unwritten form of contract. The supply chain started from the production of high value vegetables through contract farmers and finally exported to mainstream supermarkets of the world. The gross margins, net returns and partial budgeting analysis showed that the contract growers significantly benefited much more than the non-contract...

This book focuses on the socio-economic characteristics of fish farmers and their practices; opportunities and challenges facing fish farming development; effect of fish farming on household food security and livelihoods and strategic options for improving fish farming for enhancing household food security and livelihoods in Western Kenya. Kenyan fish farming potential has been underexploited and it remains under developed where pond productivity is low and not rising, despite the effort of several players. Capture fish in Lake Victoria and rivers has subsequently declined due to overfishing and influence of water hyacinth. Fish farming has accounted for only about 3% of total fish production until the introduction of the Fish Farming Enterprise Productivity Program in 2009 a programme by Kenyan Government initiatives to stimulate economic development and foster economic recovery, poverty alleviation and spur development. The challenges facing fish farming development in Kenya is...

J. Yaswanth Kumar,M.S. Chari and H.K. Vardia Integrated Livestock-fish farming in rural India mohammed ebrahim tadesse megersa and haile ketema integrating pond fish farming with poultry and vegetable production
Fisheries is destined to play an important role in human nutrition but the cost is beyond reach of many people. Utilization of grain and animal protein as feed in aquaculture may not be economical as it might lead to food crisis and attention is being redirected to wider use of all resources and integrated fish farming offers a solution to the problem. To get good fish production inputs as fish feed, manure and fertilizers in the pond are important aspects. However at village level introduction of these inputs is highly objected and as a result only seed as input is applied. The reason for rejection is that villagers believe that these inputs propagate skin diseases, as most ponds are domestic and multipurpose in nature. To overcome the above problems and also to increase fish production, recycling of nutrients is a suitable alternative. To achieve this animal component in the form of ducks was introduced into the ponds under scavenging mode in this environment. The integrated fish...
