COCONUT FARM:
At present, we have 695 yielding trees and 230 non-yielding. Due to good rains and hard labor of our students, the coconut yield is better, but the monkeys destroy the yield. The price was reasonably good towards the end of the financial year. This year we received Rs. 1, 50 980/- from the sale of coconuts. ARECA NUTS:
We have approximately 6,000 trees and 1,600 non-yielding. Areca trees are taken good care this year watering them regularly. Entire garden has an irrigation facility now. We received Rs. 8,57,286 from sale of areca nuts. PADDY CULTIVATION:
This year, we cultivated two paddy crops. Compared to the previous years, the yield was good but the heavy rains caused problems during harvesting. Some of the fields are used for growing grass for the cows because hey price has increased much. This year we got 30-quintal rice. VEGETABLES:
We found that this soil is good for cultivating vegetables. We cultivated cucumbers, brinjals, beans, spinnage, pumpkins, lady fingers, amaranths, curry cucumbers, tapioca etc. The excess vegetables we sold for normal price. RUBBER PLANTATION:
It is proved that at present the rubber is the best income generating source and more profitable than any other crops and cash crops. We have about 3,500 rubber plants in all, among which 1,100 are yielding and another 600 will be ready soon, and the rest will be ready after 4 years. The price went up to Rs. 240 per kilo. We also faced tappers problem this year. The family left with short notice and the next tapper was not a steady man. He too left soon. Altogether, we have been able to market a sum of Rs.7,51,494/- worth rubber during the financial year 2010-2011. We have another 500 rubber saplings for plantation this year. CASH CROPS:
Our farm also includes the cash crops like cashew, pepper, mango, jackfruits and banana. Cashew yield was rather satisfactory but good many trees died due to sickness. We sold 120 kilo cashew nuts at the rare of Rs. 68/-. The pepper plants are dying due to sickness. We collected 55 kilo pepper and sold 38 kilo at the rate of Rs. 200/-. Mango yield was better but untimely rains destroyed the yield. We have planted more than hundred banana trees this year. Present we have 39 cows and out of which 20 are milking and rest are calves. All the cows are healthy. After keeping for our requirements, we get an average 80 liters of milk for sale each day. The milk is given to the Society. The society gives us the rate depending upon the pat contains in a liter. The cost of the cattle feed rise every day. Dairy is not a loss, since we get gobar gas for our use and manure for our garden. PIGGERY:
We had 18 pigs in the current year and 16 piglets. Out of which 3 pigs were slaughtered and we sold 15 piglets at the rate of 1800/- per piglet. At present, we have 16 bigger ones and 9 younger ones altogether numbering 25. We earned Rs. 41,000 from piggery. GOAT REARING:
Goat rearing is one of the activities of this institution to raise income of the house. It is one of the easiest occupations with low investment. Right now, we have twenty-five goats. COMPUTER TRAINING:
In this competing world of technology and computers, our students are found to cope up with the situation to compete with the world to as to earn their livelihood. The course of DTP has brought smile on their desperate faces. LABOURERS:
We have 13 regular laborers among whom 6 are residents in our campus. A canteen is put up to cater for the students. One worker is fully engaged for this purpose. Improvements:
In the part of improvement side one can observe that our entire farm looks better. It is mainly because of the better irrigation system and the manuring. In order to get a better result all round improvement has been sought. The efforts have been made to utilize more river water so that the water in our wells and in the lake is spared for the time of greater necessity. In the recent years, the new pipelines have been installed, and the provision has been made for 150 sprinklers. Conclusion:
In conclusion, as we went through the report of 2010-2011 there has been a lot and marvelous works has been undertaken by the CKSK. For all this, nothing but we say a big thank you.
