Abstract:

Integrated Farming System (IFS) is a complex interrelated matrix of soil, plants, animals, implements, power, labour, capital and other inputs controlled in part by farming families and influence to varying degree by political, economical, institutional and rest factors that operate at farm level. Under the existing agrarian structure, most of the rural farm families are of small and marginal in nature, which are living below the poverty line with the continued threats to their livelihood security characterized by low in food and income securities, unemployment, health problems, education etc. Due to this reason, these categories of farmers, poorly adapted to the changed farming scenario especially in rain fed areas. Further, the section of farming community is very much susceptible to the natural vagaries (drought and flood) and resulting in large migration to urban areas for seeking livelihood opportunities. Integrated Farming System acts as a better tool to address these problems as it ensures the consolidation of natural resources base at farm level and provides an opportunity to arrive at appropriate combination of the enterprise through interlinking of different farm enterprise for the effective use of natural resources and recycling of nutrients on the farm.
