Safest Culture of Farming – Poly Culture

Poly Culture

Firstly we should know what is poly culture, it is the practice of culturing more than one species of aquatic organism in the same pond. This type of culture results in higher production and risk free. Fish species of different food habits are cultured effectively for quality output.

To get productive output the pond environment, stocking, supply of feed, oxygen, fertilization are important. By maintaining effectively the output is 4 times the regular production.

Feed to poly culture:

While selecting the species it is very important to choose atleast one species whose feed is general rather than specialized feed which will help to utilize the natural food in the pong and prevents the water from contamination.

Supplementary feed is mandatory for faster growth of the species.

Feed should include Feed Ingredients, Rice Bran, Fish-meal, Vitamin & Mineral Mix and Vitamin & Dried Molasses.

Feed quantity should be increased gradually with the growth in size of the fish.

Feed should be scattered in the pond.

We can also purchase feed online which includes all the essential nutrients for the growth of the fish. We can purchase online at Aquadeals
