Abstract

The present study was conducted to evaluate the improved integrated farming system performance at the fields of 30 selected tribal farmers of three selected villages of Vallabhnagar tehsil of Udaipur district (Rajasthan) during 2018-19 and compared with the benchmark year 2015-16. Various interventions from MPUAT experts were provided regarding inputs and their timely use and the training programs for these farmers. It was concluded that during 2018-19 FS IV (Crop + Dairy + Vegetable) and FS V (Crop + Dairy + Vegetable + Fruit Orchard) were highly efficient as these systems gave the highest returns per rupee of investment. In contrast, FS VIII (Crop + Dairy + Goat + Vegetable + Fruit Orchard) was efficient in terms of employment generation as it leads to the generation of 463 man-days. As a result, higher profitability and productivity with the lesser cost of cultivation of improved integrated farming system were obtained compared to the existing integrated farming system during the benchmark year.
