Abstract

The Meghalaya state one among north eastern Hilly state with 56000 ha area under organic farming [1] and a state with least use of agrochemicals. The traditional practices, local varieties, indigenous knowledge and proximity to nature have significant influence on agricultural activity. The factors such as large availability of organic matter through forest litter and seasonal vegetation, high rainfall with least scope for agrochemical based agriculture, subsistence farming, soil constraints (soil acidity, topography and relief), diversified enterprises with prominent place for animal component, availability of organic inputs and promotion of organic farming play a major role in maintaining crop cultivation organic in nature.
