Mango Orchard Intercropping
Intercropping is a multiple cropping practice involving growing two or more crops in the same crop field having different canopy coverage and uses different production technology. The most common goal of intercropping is to produce a greater yield on a given piece of land by making use of resources that would otherwise not be utilized by a one crop variety. Careful planning is required, taking into account the soil, climate, crops, and varieties. It is particularly important not to have crops competing with each other for physical space, nutrients, water, or sunlight.
Mango intercropping with various cereal crops, especially paddy has been gaining momentum in the region, including its vast Barind tract for a long time as the growers, in general, are getting interested towards the farming. In the wake of adverse impact of climate change, the farmers face trouble to depend on only paddy cultivation for the last couple of years. To get more income and to recoup the losses, they can cultivate paddy, onion, garlic, brinjal, mustard, turmeric and papaya with mango as intercropping. By dint of excellent output, the farmers can create new mango orchards in the new method.

A navigable aqueduct, or water bridge, is a structure to carry navigable waterway canals over other rivers, valleys, railways or roads. Although there’s none in our country, a number of such water bridges have been engineered around the world spanning from the late 1700’s to the early 2000’s. At 918 meters, Magdeburg Water Bridge in central Germany, located near Magdeburg is the longest navigable aqueduct in the world. It connects the Elbe-Havel Canal to the Mittellandkanal, crossing over the Elbe River. The construction work for the water bridge started in 1997, taking six years and costing €500 million. The water bridge now connects Berlin’s inland harbour network with the ports along the Rhine River.
