Baby overcomes rubber price dip

Kochi: The failure of his crop left rubber cultivator K A Baby of Koothattukulam unfazed. He dug eight ponds and went in for fish farming, breeding all major species. Using plastic sheets and an ingenious rain water harvesting technique, he has an assured supply of water for farming and domestic purposes. He practices aquaponics and uses Azolla as fish feed. Leaves of colocasia grown at home to serve as fish feed. Apart from this he turned to pepper and plantain cultivation in his compound. It was after retiring from KSRTC as a conductor that Baby turned to cultivation, with flexibility being his hallmark. His experience also demonstrates that the failure of rubber to yield profits is not the end of the world.
