‘Integration of Animal Husbandry and Agriculture


Sustainable Livelihood’



Agriculture & livestock

Agriculture and Animal Husbandry contributes significantly towards our GDP. The livestock sector contributes more than 30% to Agriculture GDP

Farm land

Livestock wealth

Crop residues

Grains and

cash crops

Milk, Meat, Eggs, fuel, and Draught power


Supplements income and nutritional needs

Major means of sustenance

Optimum resource utilization and value creation


The Great Revolution in the History of Agriculture:

Systematic Integration of Domestic Animals in Crop Rearing System

  • Draught Animal Power
  • Manure
  • Food and Nutrition
  • Agriculture by- products

This being a closed system, everything was recycled within.

Cash income was low, hence it was considered as non- productive.


Advent of

And its package of practices…

Unintentional Disjoint in Livestock and Agriculture


  • Chemical Fertilizer could not address soil humus
  • Seed and Breed got attention ; soil fertility depleted
  • Water and land resources- optimal utilization
  • Feed & fodder became scarce

Agriculture and Animal Husbandry are treated as different components today.

  • While fertilizers and pesticides are used for increasing the productivity and fertility of the crop but the fertility of soil is getting depleted.
  • The organic waste of livestock is creating pollution, which otherwise can be effectively used as a source of fuel energy.
  • The water consumption in Agri production is not accounted for and is leading to water wastage.

The Missing Link



Demonstration of a sustainable livelihood model through integration of animal husbandry.

Extension of technology to grass root level.

Training of the villagers to generate employment.

To train the farmers in the technique of Artificial Insemination for good quality breeds.

To improve soil humus and fertility

  • Water conservation
  • Improving humus
  • Improve quality of animals
  • Sustainable livelihood
  • Generate Employment

Food, Feed, Fodder, Fuel & Fertilizer Security


Sustainable Livestock & Agriculture Development


Solution Feed & Fodder

Ayurvet ProGreen Hydroponics Machine

Saves Land

Saves Water

Building Health and Food Security

Production equivalent to 1 hectare on an area of 265 sq ft


Livestock Health Benefits

  • Better Digestibility: more milk (22% more milk production)
  • Better Reproductive Health: more calf – more milk
  • Better Health: Saves on treatment cost

Hydroponics green feed enhances Health, Productivity & Reproductive Efficiency of livestock


Solutions Food

  • Animal products provide the richest protein sources in diet
  • Additional food crops can be grown on the land dispensed by hydroponics fodder cultivation

Food from Agriculture and Animal Sources


Solution Fertilizer

  • Improvement in soil fertility
  • Reduced dependence on synthetic fertilizers
  • Less cost of production

Solution Fuel & Fertilizer

  • 1 cu m biogas replaces 400 g of LPG.
  • 25 kg of cow dung => 1cu m biogas plant
  • By- product: Slurry (Valuable natural manure )
  • Biogas slurry can fulfill upto 50% of NPK requirement
  • Improves soil Humus
  • It is Pollution free & reduces dependence on wood and fossil fuels.
  • We undertook the mass campaign amongst the dairy and agriculture farmers and undertook the demonstration of the model.
  • The Department of Biotechnology under societal project approve an amount of Rs. 1.54 Crores towards the project.
  • The Technology Demonstration Centre (TDC) have been established . Each TDC consists of Ayurvet ProGreen Hydroponic fodder production machine, Biogas, silage and Vermicompost unit.  

Farmers have started inclination towards converting the cowdung into compost for organic farming. Converting the cowdung into biogas.

  • This initiative have shown improvement in the soil humus and has also led to better socio-economic status through entrepreneurial training , which led to self employment. The revenue earned by the rural youth is ranging from Rs.3000 – 5000/- monthly
