Abstract:

Subsistence farming of Ladakh region is a production management system also identified as Remarkable land use systems excluding of all synthetic off-farm inputs but rely upon agri-livestock livelihood options best suited for sustainable development involving crop rotations, crop residues, animal manures, off-farm organic waste for nutrient mobilization and plant protection, etc which promotes biodiversity and agro-ecosystem health. The traditional Ladakh agriculture is unique and representative of Himalayan agriculture and its conservation of old land races of cultivated plants, especially of barley and alfalfa, is of global importance. Use of organic manures by Ladakh farmers has brought soils organic matter from medium to high on cultivated lands and switched to avoid using fertilizers and maintaining the taste of their own management system with limited resources.
