Abstract: Agroforestry combines agricultural and forestry technologies to create more diverse, productive, profitable, healthy and sustainable land-use systems. The Agroforestry Program has generated much information about tree integration on farms. Knowledge, careful selection of species and good management of trees and crops are needed to optimize the production and positive effects within the system and to minimize negative competitive effects. In research area Alley Cropping and Home garden systems are practicing. When farmers practicing this method they are facing many problems because research area is very remote area therefore poverty is a main obstacle for improving their farming system and no adequate technologies. Government helps this area people to improve their home garden system through Thivi Neguma project. Agroforestry has an important role to play in the research area both for food and wood security and the conservation of the environment. The programme can‘t do it alone due to limited financial, human and other resources. There are no adequate techniques in gardening system they want to improve sustainable farming system. Thirty families‘ information have been taken for research and thirty farmers have been selected randomly for interview and field observation method also used for this research. Through the research brought out what are the problems they are facing, and in future what type of techniques they have to use to improve the agroforestry gardening system.
