Attempt only two crops in a year.
Hot season and rainy season crops

Attempt only two crops in a year.
Hot season and rainy season crops.
Hot season (temperature > 30 degree celcius) is good for shrimp farming. Shrimp should be priority species in the hot season.
Avoid shrimp culture or reduce the stocking density of shrimp during the cooler rainy season (August-January) due to higher risk of disease and slower growth in shrimps
Plan the crop within financial capacity of individual farmers. If a farmer has US$5,000, plan the crop activities and crop yield within that available budget.
From the local experience of farmers, understand the local environmental capacity and plan the crop accordingly
Use the crop calendar system.
