Abstract
In the recent years we have been observing that the people in the rural areas have been suffering from so many problems. Out of these problems getting livelihood has become more important. The farmers have been cultivating the traditional crops and the returns from these traditional crops has been low. And therefore they need to diversify and change the cropping pattern from the traditional crops to modern and more remunerative crops. In this direction an effort has been made to study the impact of crop and activity diversification on the income levels of the sample HHs consisting of 385 farmers belong to Experimental Group and 100 HHs/farmers belong to Control Group. The study comes out with the conclusion that the income levels of the farmers who have diversified their cropping pattern have got more returns when compared to the Control Group belong to the same farm size category.
