Traditional Practices in Agriculture among the Apatanis of Arunachal Pradesh
Dr. Mithun Sikdar

 

    

Traditional societies have always intimately interacted with ‘mother nature’, and therefore they have accumulated pragmatic knowledge in their day-to-day life. There is an inherent realization in traditional societies that man and nature form part of an inseparable unit and therefore should live in partnership with each other. This ecocentric as well as reverential attitude of the traditional societies is widely reflected in their attitudes towards plants, animals, rivers, earth and their day-to-day activities (Vatsayan, 1993). In this regard the agricultural system of traditional societies offers one of the ways to decipher their technologies for conserving biodiversity through traditional ecological knowledge. All over the world the agricultural practices differ from shifting cultivation to wet rice cultivation and from one population group to the other. One such agricultural practice called integrated wet rice cum fish cultivation can be found in several parts of Indonesia, Japan, Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, China and India. This type of agricultural system consists of various waste recycling technique as well as utilization of ecological setup. The system is often energy efficient with greater economic output as well as beneficial for the ecological condition.
