This paper aims towards a new idea in the field of agriculture for the betterment of Farmers and subsequently the outcome will be much fruitful to the people. R cum F culture can generate additional net returns to the farmers. We won’t let them die by committing suicide anymore. Farming is not just a job, it’s a way of Life to them and the product which they cultivate and produce is what we need three times a Day to Live (It’s the Food). If we can pay a Doctor for keeping us better, then why not we think about a Farmer who keeps us alive and healthy by their hard sweating work. R cum F culture i.e., Rice cum fish culture is the culture of Rice and fish in the same piece of land together. Production of fish as an additional crop is major boost to the farmer and to the people, so as to the state economy and strengthening food security of a nation ultimately. The farmer gets additional food and income in the form of fish. The rice field is converted into a temporary fish pond after the harvest. He can feed to his family and he can sell fish and can earn money in return for his betterment of financial stability. Both Rice and Fish as Food are the outcomes of this R cum F culture. Rice fields may also serve as fish nurseries to grow fry into fingerlings. If a farmer gets success, we get food. This paper shows a promising step which can be applied all over the world in the field of agriculture which is nothing but the science, art, or occupation concerned with cultivating land, raising crops, and feeding, breeding, and raising livestock; farming for livelihood of all present on planet earth.
