abstract
In India, organic farming is increasingly considered a promising way to increase the income of small-scale farmers, while at the same time protecting ecologically fragile areas. This is especially true for farmers in areas considered “marginal,” such as those in the Himalayan hill areas of the state of Uttarakhand. This research focuses on the current situation of the agricultural sector in K village, located in Uttarakhand. Following a general analysis, the paper will focus in more detail on two intertwined aspects: knowledge and perception about organic farming among local farmers on one hand, and traditional agricultural practices and landscape on the other. The purpose of this study is to observe the farming methods practiced in the village and to explore the potential and challenges for the adoption of organic farming practices, both to increase farmers’ income and to preserve the traditional agricultural landscape and culture of mountain villages. Researching the agricultural landscape in K Village and its connection with local culture can also deepen our understanding of the agricultural landscape in the Himalayan region of India and its potential to support the sustainable development of these areas.
