ABSTRACT
In Uttarakhand about 75 percent population predominantly depends on the cultivation of subsistence crops for their livelihood. Majority of the farmers have marginal to small land holdings. The traditional subsistence agriculture has never been economically rewarding venture because it is labour intensive in nature. Cultivation of cash crops may fetch better result for the farmers, nevertheless poor transportation network discourages the farmers to shift fully or partially because during rainy season majority of the villages are cut off from the main stream. However the region has always promoted sustainable indigenous methods of cultivation with crop diversity, For the present study the researchers interacted with the farmers of the villages in Chamoli district. to collect vital information from the different stake holders and the result has been presented in the coherent frame of the study.

Key words : Indigenous practices, Organic farming, Subsistence crops, Sustainable development.
