Experimental integrated farming systems in Mexico
- Mexico, like many other Latin Amer-ican countries, is beginning to recognize the potential of integrated agriculture aquaculture systems in food production. However, Latin American experience in fish husbandry is limited compared to that of Southeast Asian culturists. In September 1981, Dr. K. Hopkins of ICLARM and the author visited projects of the Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones sobre Recursos Bioticos (INIREB) to advise on research planning and technology development. INIREB has worked on integrated farming systems since 1976, concentrating at first on adaptation of traditional 'chinampa' systems (essentially raised strip fields in swampy areas, surrounded by water channels), and diversifying since 1978 into animal-biogas-fish systems.
