The twenty-first century is the era of global environmental problems such as increasing population, natural resource degradation, climate change and ecosystem disturbance. Green Revolution though multiplied agricultural production many folds but at the huge environmental cost. Now the time is to quittance the loss by introducing an environment-friendly and climate-smart approach. And Traditional agriculture is the practice which is getting increased attention in the context over the world. The dormant seed of Traditional Agriculture System was again germinated when United Nations announced 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming (IYFF, 2014) to promote family farming or small land holder farming with ultimate aim to end hunger, improve livelihood, manage natural resources and for well-being of rural people.
