In India, agriculture production is a backbone of Indian economy, but in recent past agriculture in gross domestic product is declining 14%, average size of land holding is gradually decrease 85% of the farming community. Under the continuing decrease of land holding, horizontal extension of land is not possible. For this reason, vertical integration of farm enterprises will make farming more cost-effective and reliable. Integrated farming systems proved as viable approach with an appropriate combination of farm enterprises, such as crop production, forestry, poultry, horticulture, livestock, fishery, apiculture and sericulture etc. in precise farming condition to address the problems of decreasing economic growth of our Indian farming communities. Therefore, it is viewed as a great tool for natural and human resource management in growing countries like India. This whole farming system approach is very useful in solving the problems of small and marginal farmers of India. The farming system approach is helpful in increasing the farm income and employment opening for rural population and also protects the natural resources in the course of recycling of the crop residues and animal wastes used within the farm itself. In this paper, with literature related contribution of farming systems approach in achieving food security and prolonged rural economy has been reviewed carefully.
