Gher farming is a traditional agriculture system in Bangladesh . A pond is dug into a rice field to use for fish farming, with the dug out soil used to create dykes around the pond for growing vegetables. Two USAID-funded projects in Bangladesh, Aquaculture for Income and Nutrition, and the Cereal Systems Initiative for South Asia Bangladesh, are training gher farmers on good management practices to sustainable boost the productivity and profitability of their farms. Together, the projects have helped increase the incomes of 680,000 small- and medium-scale farmers and their families. Practical training is helping farmers and hatcheries improve their farm production and profits, as well as assisting women fish retailers to secure employment.
