Abstract:

The present research work makes an effort to understand the livelihood security of farmers adopting various farming systems like Crop + Sheep, Crop + Dairy, Crop + Dairy + Sericulture and Crop + Dairy + Horticulture in EDZ of Karnataka. The livelihood index has been developed for farm households under different sub components like Economics, food, health, education, habitat, social participation and composite index. The composite livelihood security of C + D + H farming system was 0.49 higher than the other farming systems. In case of economic security, C + D + H farming system households had highest index (0.42) than the other farming systems. The dairy and sericulture components contribute highest to the total income in the existing farming system. Hence, the addition of enterprises like dairy, sericulture, sheep, horticulture, which are suitable to the zone can add to the income, besides enhancing the nutritional and livelihood security of the farm households.
