Abstract

The traditional cropping leads to a high degree of uncertainty in yield, income and employment under dryland conditions. The integrated farming systems approach introduces a change in the farming techniques for maximum productivity in farming by optimal utilisation of resources. Judicious mix of agricultural crops and other enterprises suited to the given agroclimatic condition and socio-economic status of the farmer would improve the prosperity in the dryland farming. The present day trend towards sustainable agriculture encourages the utilisation of residue and waste materials of crop and its allied activities for enrichment of soil nutrients, water retention to protectthe enviromnent over a long period. In this treatise, relevant literature on farming systenis ruearch, contribution of different components in the farming system under drylands are briefly reviewed.
