OCCUPATION

It can be safely said that agriculture is the prime occupation of the people of Uttarakhand. Agriculture is largely rain-fed and traditional farming systems like the ‘Barahanja’ (twelve grains grown together and harvested at different times) have sustained man an animal over centuries. Traditional farming systems are highlighted by the use of forest leaf litter for compost making exchange of seeds and indigenous traditional knowledge.
However the mountains terrain, large Forest cover and fragmented holdings have enforced a systems of agriculture that is mainly ‘subsistence’. Due to this marginality, most of Uttarakhand remained untouched by modern agriculture systems. This exclusion in turn, led to the preservation and cultivation of diverse varieties of food grains which are now almost extinct elsewhere.
Subsistence farming not being able to fulfill the needs of the modern family led to large scale migration of able bodied men and a lowered interest in farming among the youth. This led to the female gender slowly morphing into the farmer, the worker and the lead in the family. The sheer need for survival through the extreme climes, has, over the years, generated an almost unique social order in itself- strong and resilient the women of the mountains
‘ Organic Farming is the manifestation of the traditional environment stewardship of the people of Uttarakhand providing a meaningful expression in the form of economic  growth.’
The present marginality in the agriculture sector was identified as a essential raw material for diversification into organics where essential interventions could be the driver for change. The net result would be better economic status for the farmers and organics with its multi-dimensional benefits would serve as the custodian for the fragile mountain environs.
Organic agriculture was declared as a thrust area by the State as early as 2001-02 wherein a number of policy decisions were taken, leading to budgetary provision, programs, schemes and institutional support for the farmers as well as other stakeholders.

It is celebrated by the Bhotiya tribe of the Pithoragarh, which coincides with the blooming of the Kandali plant, which flowers once every twelve years between August and October.
