Population estimates for India range from 1370 million in 2030 to 1600 million in 2050. The average size of landholding in Telangana state has decreased slightly from 1.30 ha to 1.11 ha, from 2000 to 2016. Farming is unsustainable on such a small scale. There is a pressing need for an integrated farming system (IFS) approach in agriculture to produce not only human food (cereals, pulses, oilseeds, milk, fruit, fish, meat, etc.), but also animal feed, fodder, fuel, and fiber. The data was collected for the agriculture year 2021-22. Respondents were selected using a multi-stage random sampling method. The impact of integrated farming systems on livelihood security opined by adopted farmers showed increase in soil fertility, land productivity, waste recycling, net returns and decrease in cost of cultivation, incidence of pests and diseases etc., To examine the respondents' experiences with integrated farming systems, Garrett's ranking technique was used. First and foremost, the high price fluctuations (75) was the major constraint in crop production. To enhance the self-confidence and interest of farmers in rural areas, scientists should offer cluster-specific live demonstrations of the Integrated Farming System. This will help to attract and keep young people in agriculture to a larger extent.
