In this era of global warming, fast degradation of land productivity and other environmental hazards affects agro forestry and natural resources and socio-economic sustainability. Agro forestry is found to be the most desirable strategy for maintaining social, economic and ecological sustainability in India. Therefore a study was undertaken in a district of Tamil Nadu to investigate the perception and attitude of farmers towards agro forestry, the adoption level of agro forestry practices and the socio-economic and ecological impact of agro forestry among farmers. The findings revealed that farmers show a positive attitude towards agro forestry. The impact of the adoption of agro forestry on the social, economic and ecological conditions of the farmers is significant. This study was done to brief about various advantages of Agro forestry which would earn an added income for the farmers.
