Integrated Farming System

 

Integrated farming system is an agricultural system which combines the activities of crops and horticulture, animal husbandry, fishery, forestry and other sciences related to agriculture within an area simultaneously at a time or so. Developing an integrated farming system needs an appropriate technology, because such technology is partly important in sustainable farming and food security. As a tool, it is necessary to think about how to help farmers improve the quality of their crops. Technology also needs to be considered as a solution to overcome and to balance decrease in food production due to decrease of agricultural land. Some countries with small land are still able to overcome their food problem because of technology. Crop production can increase if irrigated areas are expanded or irrigation is intensified, but these may increase the rate of environmental degradation.
