Agricultural practices are the main stay of the people of Uttranchal. Out of the total population, more than 75% people are engaged either with the main occupation of agriculture or its allied practices, dominated by traditional subsistence cereal farming.

Sustainable utilization and conservation of biodiversity are essential for the continuation of ecosystem functioning (Srivastava and Vellend, ; Kienast et al., ); nevertheless, indigenous people give less attention to long-term ecosystem goods and services as they focus, of necessity, on marginal and short-term benefits.

These fires, set mainly in pine forests in the slopes of the sub-Himalayan region, produced clouds of smoke.

Agroforestry Tree Leaves: A Potential Source of Livestock Feeding In Himalaya, India Authors: Sunil Prasad, Baldev Singh Negi Livestock rearing has been the backbone of Himalaya’s economy for centuries and this sector is the primary source of energy for agricultural operation and animal protein for the people.

Agroforestry systems are an age-old practice in the Indian Himalayan region. Agroforestry deals with the combination of tree species with crop plants, fisheries, animals, bee keeping, and so on, and it is based on the principle of optimum utilization of land. Agrihorticulture, silvihorticulture, hortipastoral, and silvipastoral systems are diversified land use options for agroforestry in the Author: Ram Prakash Yadav, Jaideep Kumar Bisht, Vijay Singh Meena, Mahipal Choudhary.

Homogenized river discharge data from three stations and average rainfall records, interpolated from 13 stations, were examined for long-term trends and decadal variations (–) in the headwater, upper and middle catchments of the Bagmati : Dinesh Tuladhar, Ashraf Dewan, Michael Kuhn, Robert J.

The richness of orchid species that are endemic to central and eastern Himalaya showed a bimodal pattern. Land utilization map series has defined the then current use and condition of the land; whether it is under forest, used for grazing or for crop production. In other words these maps have covered both agricultural and forestry landuse.

It is commendable that land utilization mapping provided the first detailed statistics for current landuse in. Essentially, the country is divided into three major land regions: plains and river valleys in the south; a mid-Himalayan (5, to 14, ft.

high) area north of the valleys; and the mountainous. Marginal agricultural land is estimated for biofuel production in Africa, China, Europe, India, South America, and the continental United States, which have major agricultural production capacities.
