Roy, B. and Das, D.N. and Mukhopadhyay, P.K. (1990) Rice-fish-vegetable integrated farming: towards a sustainable ecosystem. Naga, the ICLARM Quarterly, 13(4), pp. 17-18.
An outline is given of procedures to take in order to adopt an integrated rice-fish-vegetable farming system in India. Vegetables, which are cultivated in the dikes of the system, may include Luffa acutangula, Vigna unguiculata and Phaseolus vulgaris . When the water depth of the field rises to 30-40 cm, fish fingerlings (Puntius javanicus, Cyprinus carpio and Labeo rohita ) and prawn juveniles (Macrobranchium rosenbergii ) may be stocked. The advantages of such a system are listed and include year round employment opportunities for the farm family and improved farm family income and nutrition.
