Agriculture is an age-old practice. From 6500 B.C., with the cultivation of wheat and barley to present scientific cultivation,a lot of development occurred in it. Agricultural heritage deals with this agricultural development and its transfer from generation to generation. Problem of environment sustainability arises due to intensive chemical inputs used in agriculture. Study of agriculture heritage helps to know the science behind the ancient Indigenous Technical Knowledge’s (ITK’s), which was unknown at that time. Thereby, we can maintain the sustainability in agriculture by utilising these ITK’s. It is also essential to aware the new generation about development in agriculture. The present book is an effort in this direction in which the authors has attempted,how the development shall be done in agriculture and its transfer from generation to generation, comprising agriculture during Stone age, Iron age, Bronze age, Vedic age, Harrappan culture, Buddhist period and during different ancient kingdom of India. Present book also emphasises on ITK’s in agriculture, soil, water and climatic resources of India, status, concerns and future prospects of Indian agriculture. I hope that this book will be useful for students and as reference book for teachers.
