    Diversity is the norm in African farming systems. Even at the level of the individual farm unit, farmers typically cultivate 10 or more crops in diverse mixtures that vary across soil type, topographical position and distance from the household compound. Dixon and colleagues () provide the most comprehensive description of farming systems globally (Table and Figure .

    need to do research on farming systems research for sustainable income along with the maintenance of natural resources. It is designed to understand farmers’ priorities, strategies and resource allocation decisions. Integrated farming system Integrated farming system (IFS) a component of farming system researchFile Size: KB. This is a book containing all sorts of chapters on integrated farming and cropping systems. Though this book primarily written to serve as a text book/reference for the students of agriculture in under graduate and post graduate levels and technologists in developing organisations, it is hoped that this book will be valuable for similar groups.

    To meet the requirements of this target, productivity of rainfed farming systems will have to be increased. The efforts under this target will focus on the opportunities for improving rain fed farming potential to boost yields and income, especially in areas of low productivity. The project assesses the likely and potential impacts of Generation Challenge Program technologies in the developing countries. We take a multi-disciplinary approach, employing methods and perspectives in economics, spatial analysis, and agronomy and farming systems. The work builds on systems research that has mapped and described farming systems in the .

While a good grasp of the many separate aspects of agriculture is important, it Brand: Springer Netherlands. Rainfed agriculture is a type of farming that relies on rainfall for water.

It provides much of the food consumed by poor communities in developing example, rainfed agriculture accounts for more than 95% of farmed land in sub-Saharan Africa, 90% in Latin America, 75% in the Near East and North Africa, 65% in East Asia, and 60% in South Asia.

Amitav Bhattacharya, in Changing Climate and Resource Use Efficiency in Plants, Mulching. Rainfed agriculture covers 80% of the world’s cultivated land, and contributes about 60% to the total crop production (UNESCO, ).Low productivity in many arid and semiarid rainfed agricultural systems is often due to degraded soil fertility and limited water and.

Rainfed farming systems in humid areas have high resource potential, characterised by a crop activity (notably root crops, cereals, industrial tree crops – both small scale and plantation – and commercial horticulture) or mixed crop-livestock systems. Whereas rainfed farming systems practised in steep and highland areas are mixed crop.

An ambitious book that provides a comprehensive overview of the new thinking in rainfed agriculture, ranging from small-holder cropping to highly mechanized broad acre cereal cropping.

It evaluates the research effort in such diverse areas as crop production modeling, advances in genetic improvement including the role of GM, soil water use 4/5(1). Rainfed Farming System Rainfed agriculture occupies about 51 percent of country’s net sown area and accounts for nearly 40 percent of the total food production.

Rainfed agriculture is complex, highly diverse and risk prone. Description: This book entitled Development of Rainfed Farming in Central India has 10 chapters viz. (1) Problems and prospects of Rainfed Farming, (2) Present status and strategy of Rainfed Farming Development, (3) Land and water resources, (4) Technology for watershed based Rainfed Farming Development, (5) Land and water management practices.

Sreedevi and S.P. Wani 13 Challenges of Adoption and Adaptation of Land and Water Management Water productivity, ‘the amount of crop produced per drop’, tends to be low in rainfed farming systems, while losses from evaporation are high. Land is often degraded, crops frequently die because of drought or floods and few methods are in place for managing water more effectively.
