Azolla- Cost saving alternative to the dairy enterprise

The economy of the NICRA adopted village, Nirmal pimpri is mainly depend on dairy enterprise. In the dairy enterprise major cost is incurred on feed and fodder. Farmers daily gives average 2kg concentrate feed /cow. Monthly expenditure on concentrate feed is Rs 1000 /cow. To minimized expenditure on feed KVK introduced azolla feeding technology in the village. Azolla is a blue green algae having good quantity of protein, minerals and vitamins. It can be used as low cost feed to the dairy animal.

KVK established twenty azolla production units in the village with technical support. After the sufficient growth of azolla in bed, feeding started to the cows. Azolla feed o.5 kg/cow /day by mixing with concentrate feed. While feeding azolla quantity of concentrate feed minimized by 0.5 kg/cow/day. Cost of azolla production is very less. It saves average cost on feed by Rs 13.55/cow/day i.e. Rs 400-450/cow/month Technology of azolla production is easy hence farmers could be easily cultivated with minimum care.

This field day encourage the farmers for adoption of the technologies and fready to armers start azolla cultivation and silage making by their own cost.
