Two farming system research models were laid out on farm at KVK Gariyaband  during 2014-15 and 2015-16 with an aim to study the economic viability and employment generation of the models. Model I was laid out in 3.5 acre area under rainfed conditions and Model II was laid out in 1.5 acre area under irrigated conditions. IFS Model II under irrigated conditions proved to be more remunerative with highest average net returns of Rs.452096 indicating better economic viability and better employment generation capacity as compared to IFS Model I under rainfed conditions.
