Integrated Intensive Holistic Farming Systems (IIHFS)

by D.S. Thakur

It may be noted that a systems approach has been followed, composed of the following twelve components:

As more land will not be available for cultivation in future, with the declining size of holdings, intensive farming with the IIHFS is the only alternative to feed the burgeoning population and to increase production and income of farmers. The IIHFS with the host of farm and non-farm sub-systems in appropriate combinations, generates more employment, production and income. However, to be sustainable, such an intensive farming system as the IIHFS has to depend on the ecological organic farming system and other related components enlisted and discussed below.
