With regard to IFS modules for irrigated conditions, crop production + dairy module was adopted by 70.00 per cent of the respondents. Majority of the respondents belonged to the middle aged category (between 31 to 50 years), small land holders category and high income group. Majority of the respondents belonged to medium farming experience category with large size family. Majority of the respondents belonged to medium scientific orientation category.
