Abstract:

Socioeconomic survey performed on the selected farmers whose primary source of income is agriculture and adopting agroforestry in their farm land. Survey is done to analyze the social and economic status of the selected farmers. Most of the farmers are less educated but still they are accepting the new changes in agroforestry pattern, keeping small and medium sized nuclear family to meet economic needs and maintaining social status. As the farmers of Basavanapura and Hejjige village are educated till primary school but still due to indigenous knowledge of tree cultivation in farm land promoting them to cultivate horticulture crop like Arecanut, coconut, Sapota and banana with agriculture crops or pasture crops for commercial purpose and forest tree species are grown only on bunds or in scattered manner whereas large scale farmers grown Teak (Tectona grandis L.) and Silver oak (Grevillea robusta L.) plantations in their farm lands to increase the efficiency of the use of resources and land-use practices and by introducing agroforestry enterprises in order to produce sustainable increases in incomes and living standards. Due to changing climate and rainfall pattern farmers are facing many problems which leads to grow alternative crops like Sugarcane, tomato, chili, ragi, maize and vegetable crops in their agricultural land. Altogether leads to social equity by increasing socioeconomic standard.
