Abstract:
Kushinagar district of Eastern Uttar Pradesh is divided into 14 blocks with 1571 villages. The net sown area is 2.33 lakh ha out of that 1.67 lakh ha under irrigation. This district has a prominent place for fruits and vegetables cultivation. The major crops of the district are paddy (rice), sugarcane, wheat, maize, pulses, potato, vegetables and mango. Rice-wheat based cropping system is most dominated in the district. Traditional integration is practiced in such a way that product of one component should be the input for other enterprises with high degree of complimentary effects on each other and also increase the farmer income. The study advocated the benefits of productivity improvement by 30-50% depending upon the number and kind of enterprises and their management. Sole rice could not give high income as compare of mixed /integrated farming system, so its needs to be refine / developed suitable integrated farming system in that’s reasons. To sustain and satisfy needs, farmers include crop production, livestock, poultry, goat keeping, etc. in their farming systems. Earlier, the important objective of existing farming was subsistence and few farmers are now approaching for quality and soil health aspects also.
