Abstract:

An one ha model of integrated farming system initiated during 2015 at Agricultural Research Institute, Rajendranagar, Hyderabad, Telangana. One hectare area divided into 5 blocks viz. involving rice-sweet corn- dhaincha on 0.24 ha, banana plantation with on 0.15 ha, brinjal-tomato in 0.2 ha for vegetable production, Green fodder crops were raised on 0.35 ha. 50 saplings of coconut were planted all around the bunds. Field beans are also grown on the bunds between the trees of coconut. Vines of bitter gourd, bottle gourd and cucumber were trained on a pandal of 0.04ha. A shed consisting 7 compartments was built with required facilities over an area of 0.016 ha to accommodate with 4 buffaloes, 4 calves, 20 sheep, 34 rabbits, 110 hens and 1000 quails and farm family in each. This model was compared with predominant cropping system of the area i.e. Rice-Maize in one hectare. Gross and net returns of Rs 12,43,250 and Rs 6,09,160 were realised respectively from one ha model during first year. Where as in Rice-Maize crop sequence, gross and net returns were Rs 2,18,880 and 1,38,373 respectively. Integrated farming System could generate 750 man days ha-1 annum-1 which is 3 times higher than rice-maize (225 man days) cropping system.
