The main aim of this study is to analyze whether natural farming system was economically better with sufficient economic returns to the farmers against Conventional farming practices.

Efficient use of available natural resources as a key inputs for farming was found economically attractive enough to trigger wide spread adoption of Natural farming system in the study area.
