Integrated Farming Systems for Sustainable Poduction

A K Sarkar (Editor) Ors. (Editor)
Synopsis This book is a compilation of lecture notes of eminent scientists in the field of agriculture and allied sectors on integrated farming systems for sustainable livelihood, food and nutritional security of rural masses. Improved agricultural technologies are of limited value if these are not adopted by farming community. Farming system on the other hand, is a judicious mix of cropping systems with associated enterprises like fruits, vegetables, flowers, dairy, poultry, piggery, duckery, goatery, fishery, lac, sericulture, etc. suited to given agroclimatic conditions which will help to generate additional employment and income for the small and marginal farmers under rainfed and irrigated conditions.

Conceptually it is an attempt to efficiently utilize the components of soil, water, climate, crops, farm wastes, livestock, land, labour, capital, energy and other resources with the farm family at center. Authors feel that farming systems if adopted on a farmer and market linked mode will improve the productive potential and land resources by augmenting use efficiency of inputs through diversification, crop rotation, nutrient recycling and conservation of natural resources. In this book an effort has been made to present the detailed information about the integrated farming system concept principles components, model development and their usefulness to the farm household. We hope that the book would prove to be useful to the students, researchers, planners, farmers and other stakeholders. All the chapters in the book have been meticulously comprehended compiled and presented with a fine skill by the experts of respective fields.
