India has traditionally been a country of sustainable agriculture, but the growth of modern scientific, input intensive agriculture has pushed it to wall. But with the increasing awareness about the safety and quality of foods, long term sustainability of system and accumulating evidence if being equally productive. The sustainable agriculture is labour intensive, but is cost of cultivation is lower due to saving on chemical pesticides, fertilizers and seeds. The yield on sustainable agriculture is higher by adopting system of rice intensification and direct seeded rice by seed drum. The analyzed data showed that the average holding size of SA practicing respondents in Bastar Plateau had a little more than land holding size of the SA practicing respondents of Chhattisgarh Plains. The land holding size was double in Northern Hill region than the both region. FBI from sustainable agriculture in the production of paddy is much higher than that from modern agriculture, through there are differences in Cost A1. In the case of paddy SAS practicing farmers were adopted NPM input methods which is reflecting in Cost A1 became cheaper than the chemical input method used by MAS farmers. Yield was higher than MAS cultivated farmers due to might be 39 percentage SAS farmers were cultivated paddy by system of rice intensification. FBI from Bastar plateau region under sustainable agriculture system is more than double than Modern agriculture system. The larger variation in the SAS farmers FBI could be observed in the Chhattisgarh plain region which is higher than the MAS farmers. NRLM’s core objective is to increase atleast 1 lakh additional income of the SHG members. Sustainable agriculture is the major activity in which we can reduce the cost of production and increase the production. This can also fulfill thought of respected prime minister “Doubling of farmer’s Income by 2022.”

Key words: Sustainable Agriculture, Economic Performance, Farm Business Income, Cost.
