Discover How Farm Ponds Boost Yield And Resilience

Farm Pond is a dug out structure with definite shape and size having proper inlet and outlet structures for collecting the surface runoff flowing from the farm area

* Farm ponds have a significant role in rainfed regions where annual rainfall is more than or equal to 500 mm

*  If average annual rainfall varies between 500 to 750 mm, the farm ponds with capacity of 250 to 500 cu. m. can be constructed

* In high rainfall area it can be used in fish culture or duck farming integrated with poultry

* These structures provide localised water and food security by enhancing the crop productivity and climate resilience

Depending on the source of water and their location, farm ponds are of 2 types:

* Excavated or Dug out ponds

* Surface ponds
