Reaching the Unreached
Farming system approach envisages the integration of agroforestry, horticulture, dairy, sheep and goat rearing, fishery, poultry, pigeon, biogas, mushroom, sericulture and by-product utilization of crops with the main goal of increasing the income and standard of living of small and marginal farmers. The challenge is to upgrade the technological and social disciplines on a continuous basis and integrate these disciplines to suit the region and the farm families in a manner that may ensure increased production with stability, ecological sustainability and equitability.
