This paper is an attempt to analyse the land use under homestead, the features of homestead gardening, its importance and socio economic profile of the homestead farmer.

In this context, homestead cultivation is considered to be the most suitable form of cultivation. The study finds the status of the homestead farmers, dependents on homestead and investigate cropping pattern of food crops and livestocks.
