Karnataka scenario 80 per cent of small and marginal farmers operational land holding is less than 2 ha and they growing monocrop or commercial crop having less profitable due to many constraints. From field survey in Agro Climatic Zones of Karnataka revealed that, among the different cropping system integrated farming system has recorded higher average gross returns (Rs. 2,19,343 ), net returns (Rs.1,35,850) and benefit cost ratio (2.76) over the conventional mono cropping in all the zones of Karnataka. Higher Profitability and productivity with lesser cost of cultivation of integrated farming system is mainly due to the year round employment generation, reduced dependency on external inputs and components of integrated farming system act as insurance under unexpected crop losses by climate vagaries.
Key words: Rain fed condition, Productivity, Profitability and Integrated farming system.
