Abstract:
The present investigation was undertaken to compare the performance of coconut-livestock (cow) based Integrated Farming System with coconut mono cropping system at Horticulture Research and Extension Centre, Arsikere during 2013 to 2021in old coconut garden. Plants spaced at 7.5 m × 7.5 m. Two treatments viz., T1: Coconut + Fodder crops + Cow (IFS), T2: Mono crop of coconut are imposed as non-replicated trials in an area of 0.40 ha each. The experiment results revealed that the T1 has produced the highest average value with respect to yield of nuts per palm per year (100.82), Gross return (Rs. 3, 21,513/ unit) and net return (Rs.2, 28,595/ unit) and also B: C ratio (3.69). Besides, the model also generated more manure and added more nutrients to soil compare to T2.
