Abstract

The study's major goal was to find out the challenges (high cost of input, pest attack, marketing problems, high transportation cost etc.,) that farmers face in the integrated farming system. Farmers' constraints in different enterprises of the integrated farming system were recorded through a well-structured and pretested survey schedule. To confirm their validity and determine the extent to which the identified constraints were seen in crop production as well as in cattle production, goat rearing, backyard poultry production and orange cultivation, the severity of the indicated constraints in the real field condition was measured. The fieldwork was carried out in sixteen villages of the Hadoti region out of which Kota, Bundi, Baran, and Jhalawar were selected randomly. A total of 112 farmers were interviewed and data was gathered through group discussions and personal interviews. The data were quantified by ranking the limitations based on the responses of the respondents.
