Abstract:

Pesticidal residues due to excessive or spurious use of chemicals become one of the curses of modern agriculture. This detrimental effect of chemicals brings the urgent need of ecofriendly and health hazard free sustainable agriculture. Indigenous technological knowledge (ITK) can play an important role in organic agriculture more particularly in pest and disease management of agricultural crops. The ITKs are eco-friendly and even compatible to other management practices, contributing towards pesticidal residue-free agricultural products. The North eastern states of India are heartland of indigenous groups of people and treasure house of ITKs applicable in agricultural sector. Due to rapid urbanization, the indigenous groups are losing concentration in conservation of these long earned ITKs which brings the importance of collection, documentation and scientific validation of ITKs. Therefore, a sincere attempt has been made to document some of the ITKs followed by the farmers and farm women of different parts of India for management of pests and diseases of agricultural crops.
