Abstract:

Farm diversification is advocated for reaping the gains of complementary relationship or equating substitution and price ratio for completing products. Farm diversification may also be used as a risk precaution and stabilize farm income. Diversification of crop farming along with livestock enterprises can play more significant role in increasing income and employment particularly on marginal and landless labourers and in meeting nutritional requirements. Besides land owing households, livestock also reared by a large number of other households, most of which belongs to poorer section of the society. Because of this, livestock wealth in India is more egalitarian compared to land and hence it is found to promote equity and livelihood security. In view of the importance of mixed farming system, it is important for decision making about the optimum level of livestock adjustment with the crop farming in total enterprises mix. It is essential that the farmers are guided about the profitable level of crop and livestock enterprises so as to maximize their income. Examination of the mixed production system in the study area reveled that crop plus milch animals production system was the most important systems adopted by the 36 percent of the sample households. Crop plus goat production system was the next most prevalent system adopted by 44 households out of the 200 households (22 percent) other systems prevalent in the study area were crop enterprise alone, (9 percent), crop plus pigs (17percent) and crop plus livestock (16 percent).
