  This study focused on the patterns of farm and off-farm employment considering gender structure and the incomes earned from different sources. However, conventional farming has not been able to generate the needed employment opportunities. Therefore, it is crucial to continue absorbing the ever-growing labor force through integrated farming which is considered a good source of increased income. The study revealed that unemployment decreased with the increases in farm size and farmers practicing integrated farming had few family labors surplus compared to the conventional farmers. Primary data collected from personal interviews with farmers was used. It is found from the analysis that the number of enterprises was the most significant factor in integrated farming, whereas working hours per week on off-farm activities by males had significant effect in conventional farming. It also implies that integrated farming is important not only for employment creation, but also for promoting the overall economic condition.

  The purpose of the study was to analyze the resource interdependence among different agricultural enterprises and to quantify how and how much the product, by-product and waste of one enterprise were used as input for another enterprise and to explore the nature of enterprise combination. It is found that the interdependence of resources was higher in landless, marginal and small farmers compared to medium and large farmers. However, land topography, soil composition and availability of different inputs along with the environmental factors influence the farmers in choosing different enterprises. It is revealed that insertion of vegetables into rice-based cropping pattern, cropping pattern with green manuring and rice with fish farming not only change the rice-based conventional farming but also enhance the soil fertility which in turn leads total production and income. Landless, marginal, small and medium farmers` return from integrated farming was higher and integrated farming was viable over conventional farming.
