It is now widely recognised that agriculture can benefit when indigenous technical knowledge of farmers or ITK is reclaimed and integrated with modern farming practices. ITK is derived from local culture, traditions and long-term human interaction with the environment. It needs both documentation and conscious promotion for a more sustainability oriented perspective in agriculture. The book aims to document ITK in agriculture by detailing rituals and practices followed in the cultivation of the main crops in the North Malabar region of Kerala. Contents Foreword Preface Acknowledgements List of Photographs and Illustrations List of Tables List of Plants Introduction Agricultural Scenario in North Malabar Farming Related Rituals Rice Coconut Arecanut Black Pepper Cashew Fruit Crops Wild Fruits Rubber Spices Tuber Crops Vegetable Crops Natural Resource Management.
