|FISH FARMING- (As a meaningful diversification in agriculture)|
Our family migrated from Pakistan and we were allotted land in Qadian, district Gurdaspur. There was a natural one acre pond in our land. Our father, late Sardar Gurdial Singh Bajwa was a keen Shikaari and very enterprising. He started putting finger-lings of Rahu fish in this pond, collecting the same from other natural water bodies. He used no feed for the fish which fed on natural planktons etc. the fish in the pond used to grow from half kg to 1 kg in a year. And this fish was sufficient for the regular needs of our family. After his death the pond was more or less in neglect as we brothers joined service. Then around the year 1990 my son Sukhdeep Singh, grandson of Sardar Gurdial Singh Bajwa, started taking keen interest in fish farming and expanded one acre farm to about ten acres with proper embankments and assured water supply which is key factor in fish farming. He installed 12 kw diesel generator and solar panels to assure regular supply of water. He laid plastic pipes along the embankments of the ponds and in the pipes he made small v-shape cuts at regular intervals these cuts sprayed the water in the ponds to effect aeration in the water. He purchased two electric aerators for the pond water from the fisheries department on subsidy. Our fish farm is a model fish farm and scientist from the Guru Angad Dev University, Ludhiana also visited it many times. The fisheries department Gurdaspur is regularly in touch with us and we purchase fish seed from them. We manufacture our own fish feed too. As the feed supplied by the companies is very costly we produce about 2 tons of fish per acre. Seeds of 5 non carnivorous fish are put in the ponds and it grows from 1kg to 3kg depending on the variety of fish. Marketing of fish is not a problem we sell it locally as well as to the parties of Ludhiana. If some of it is not sold it makes no difference since the ponds become the storage tanks and the fish keep growing. Fish farming is a very technical job and needs proper knowledge. In summer it needs extensive aeration otherwise the fish will die due to lack of oxygen in the water. In summer the water on the surface gets heated up and becomes lighter whereas water at the bottom is cool and is heavier and as a result lighter water at the top does not go down and there is no circulation of water containing air/oxygen. The fish which remains mostly at the bottom in the pond dies due to lack of oxygen because the top water containing air/oxygen does not circulate. In winter the fish hibernates and as such needs no feeding and the water also circulates as the top water is cold and settles down naturally. The main enemies of the fish are snakes, cormorants and common Heron which inflict the maximum damage in the ponds. With proper management all stated above negative factors in fish rearing can be effectively managed. Sukhdeep Singh Bajwa is now looking after it addition to two agriculture farms and I am now helping him to look after the fish farm at Qadian. If the fish farm is run on sound basis it gives much higher return than agriculture farming.

|A Success Story of Under Ground Pipe Line System|
Sh Didar Singh of village Bagrian District Gurdaspur has adopted the under ground Pipe Line system in his thirty acres of land by the guidance of the Soil and Water Conservation Deaprtment. The total lenth of the under Ground pipe line is 1200mt. The Soil and Water Conservation Deaprtment introduced an innovative and relevant technique for the optimum and efficient utilization of irrigation water in the shape of UGPS. This farmer has adopted this technique and saved his land and thus an increase in cultivated area. The benefit has further helped to increase in yield, production and Socio-Economic status of the farmers. UGPL also helps in saving of energy, fertilizer, labour and Land development. UGPL is a highly efficient system as it has helped in catching up the time gap of conventional irrigation system. The UGPL not only needs less numbers of tubewells/gensets but also helped in Ground Water utilization. The production has been increased 20 to 30 percent by the installation of the UGPLS. The labour cost for the maintenace of open channel is saved and population of weeds has also been under control. So the labour expenditure on herbicides and manual labour has been saved. In traditional open surface irrigation methods the losses in water conveyance and application are large, these losses can be considerably reduced by adopting UGPLS method as the Didar Singh farmer adopted this method. The farmer is now happy.
