The study was undertaken in Hyderabad-Karnataka state to assess cost and returns under major farming systems, net income of the farmers from different sources and significant influence of area and dairy in major farming systems. Four major farming systems viz., Crop+Dairy (C+D), Crop+Horticulture (C+H), Horticulture+Dairy (H+D) and Crop+Dairy+Horticulture (C+H+D) were identified based on the preliminary surveys in the area. The study is based on primary data of 160 farmers covering equal samples under major farming systems elicited through the survey for 2016-17. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and  Gini coefficient.  Results revealed that net annual income realized by farm household was higher in Crop+Dairy+Horticulture (Rs. 8,62,897.70) farming system of which 72.42 per cent was from horticulture. The least annual net income was observed in Crop+Dairy (Rs. 2,17,982.21) farming system of which 55.49 per cent was from livestock enterprise. The inequality was relatively lower in Crop+Dairy (0.45) farm households. The inequality was more in Crop+Dairy+Horticulture (0.53) farm households.
