Abstract:

The integrated farming system study was conducted at farmers field of villages of vridhachalam block of Cuddalore District to improve farmer’s income and ensure their sustainable livelihood. Study was conducted in three demonstrations in wet land situation with components viz., Crop, Fish, poultry and FYM & vermicompost and two demonstrations in dry land situation with components viz., Crop-Fodder crop-Livestock-Vermicompost. In wet land situation, the annual total net return of the IFS model was Rs. 346,766‬ with the highest been contributed by crop viz., Rice and Maize (Rs. 233680.00), followed by fisheries (Rs. 89250), organic manure production (Rs. 12986) and poultry (Rs. 10850). In dry land condition, the annual net return of the IFS model was Rs. 24188 with the highest been contributed by animal husbandry (Rs.12778), followed by crop (Rs. 6460) and fodder crops (Rs. 4950). Effective recycling of farm waste in terms of FYM (45.6 q), vermicompost (35 q), goat manure (8.7 q) and poultry manure (1.72 q) and can save Rs.31100 per year by addition of 1632 kg of nutrients in-terms of N, P & K. The total annual mandays generated out of various components varied from 387 to 685 mandays. The result concluded that higher farm income was possible by adopting or using new integrated farming system and also achieves sustainable production by effective recycling of natural resource in addition to meeting family needs.
