BIOMASS AND ENERGY DYNAMICS IN DADHIBAMANPUR VILLAGE ECOSYSTEM OF CUTTACK DISTRICT OF THE BANK OF RIVER MAHANADI, ODISHA, INDIA
The village of Dadhibamanpur in Baiyalish Mouza of Cuttack district, Odisha which is agriculture based of the bank of river Mahanadi was studied as an ecosystem during 2012 - 2013. In this study, biomass energy productions and consumption patterns of the village ecosystem of Dadhibamanpur were studied in the bank of river Mahanadi, Odisha, India. The Dadhibamanpur village has population of 472 of which 255 are males while 217 are females as per Population Census 2014. Annual crop yield was 934.34t on 275ha of land. Annual energy consumption in terms of food was 278.4GJ and energy expenditure for agricultural, domestic and other daily activities in the village ecosystem. Based on the energy-flow and large dependence on agriculture land (mainly agriculture biomass for sale along with minor products), the village Dadhibamanpur was accomplished to be an open agriculture land dependent based village ecosystem. The energy flow was also developed for the Dadhibamanpur village ecosystem.
