Rice - Rice - Pulses/Sesame crop rotation of the study area has given way to Rice - Pulses/Sesame/Cotton crop rotation due to limited surface water availability. Increased area under cultivation of High Yielding Varieties, farm mechanisation due to labour scarcity, declining water table and low cattle population leading to limited availability and use of FYM as well as limited use of organic manure were the important changes perceived by the farmers. Split application of Inorganic fertilisers and use of biofertilisers and biopesticides were also perceived. Views of farmers on sustainable technologies like Green manuring, Crop rotation, Integrated Pest Management, Biofertilisers and Agroforestry were obtained besides their attitude towards sustainability issues.

Keywords: Cauvery Delta Zone - Changes in Farming System - Sustainable Technologies - Attitude and Perception of Farmers
