Integrated farming

Mixed farming systems, also known as integrated farming, involve the cultivation of both crops and animals on a single farm. This agricultural approach allows for more extensive crop rotations, consequently reducing the reliance on chemical inputs and promoting diversification as a strategy for enhanced risk management.

The primary objective of integrated farming systems (IFS) is to uplift the livelihoods of farmers. This is achieved through increased productivity, the creation of diverse income streams, and the enhancement of food security and nutrition. By thoughtfully selecting, planning, and executing a combination of one or more agricultural enterprises alongside crop cultivation, farmers, particularly those who are small-scale or marginal, can attain greater benefits than what a single enterprise would yield.
