Agro-climatic zone & major agro-ecological situations of district fatehpur:

Major farming systems / enterprises (based on the analysis made by the KVK):

S.N. Farming System / Enterprise
1 AES-III is most crop intensive. Rice-wheat, Rice-potato-chillies; Rice-wheat-sugarcane etc. crop Rotations are practiced in this AES. In AES I, the mixed cropping combinations of jowar + arhar + moong, / urd +til is practiced. Fallow-gram /lentil is also grown in AES I. In AES IV, (affected with sodicity) mostly Rice-wheat is grown.
2 Potato & chillies are important vegetable crops grown in AES III & IV in the cropping systems of dhaincha – potato moong -fallow; paddy-potato-moong; chillies-gram / wheat, etc.
3 Aonla & banana are new introductions grown along the river Gangs, now expanding to other areas also. The market support is good where grown in pockets.
4 Muskmelon & watermelon are grown in riverbeds. Sugarcane grown for juice purpose, raising buffalo heifers for sale and gur making in Dhata are special components of the existing farming systems.
5 District lacks the high value agro-forestry plantations and the existing plantations like Mahua, do not have technical & developmental support, which is must.
