Expert Answer:

The different ways of increasing production are:

i) Intercropping

ii) Mixed cropping

iii) Crop-rotation

In addition, using manures and fertilizers, irrigation systems, using better variety of crops and controlling weeds, pests, pathogens and insects will all contribute to increasing the production.

Farm income is derived from pre-tax revenues from farmers’ and ranchers’ sales of production output, plus government payments received by household members, minus production and ownership costs. Farmland has historically represented about 75 percent of assets held by farm households
