The farming community requires viable farming where they need to produce a continuous, reliable and balanced supply of foods, as well as cash for basic needs and recurrent farm expenditure. In order to avoid the uncertain income and high degree of risk through single crop production enterprise, there is a dire need to develop integrated farming system (IFS). This IFS system can eliminate the above mentioned constraints economically and also provide the other house hold needs besides increasing the productivity of the farm through effective utilization of space and time. In the present study, the farmer gets an additional income through various enterprises over the consecutive years. In terms of income generation, agricultural crop has dominated followed by horticultural crops, fisheries, dairying and poultry. The energy consumption and output during the last 4 years were calculated. The energy input was stabilized after first year and the energy output was higher than the energy input. In IFS system, the waste generated from one system is utilized as input for the other system
