  2. 2. DKS Agriclinic and Agribusiness Centre: Vision: To make agriculture sector more efficient and economically viable by promoting sustainable and feasible technology at village level.
  3. 3. Mission: DKS Agriclinic & Agribusiness centre delivers demand driven agricultural technology, products & services by qualified professionals.
  4. 4. Activities: To demonstrate the latest agricultural Technologies to the farmers To impart training to the farmers, farmwomen, rural youth and extension functionaries by following principals of “teaching by doing” and “learning by doing” To develop extension models to be adopted by existing extension system for large scale multiplication
  5. 5. An interconnected Problem More cattle overgrazing Degradation of Grassland biomes Fodder shortageChemical concentrates Harmful side effects Deterioration of milk quality
  6. 6. Some possible alternatives • Quality Biomass Production through • Macro Fodder a) Hybrid Napier b) Berseem c) Cowpea d) Sorghum • Micro Fodder a) Algae and Single cell protein like Anabaena and Spirulina
  7. 7. Are these solutions suitable for small farmers? • No! The reasons: Non availability of space in Small homesteads for macro-fodder Technical problems faced by small farmers in handling micro-fodder
  8. 8. Azolla as the right solution because Azolla is the most economic and efficient feed substitute for live stock Farmers can handle the plant easily Biomass production is very high
  9. 9. So, What is Azolla? • Azolla a water fern which looks like an algae, belongs to the familyAzollaceae. • Azolla hosts a blue green algae –Anabaena azollae which fixes atmospheric nitrogen. Azolla Anabaena inside Azolla
  10. 10. Why azolla ? Azolla on dry weight basis is constituted of 25-35% protein content, 10-15% mineral content and 7 – 19% a combination of amino acids Milk yield increases by 10 to 25% 15 to 30% commercial feed is replaced by azolla
