What is the name of agriculture in mizoram?
The answer is "JHUMING" From time immemorial, the traditional method of Paddy cultivation in the hill slopes, commonly known as 'Jhuming' have been practiced in Mizoram till date. Jhuming is the most primitive and destructive method of cultivation-where the villagers slash down the forest, leave for drying under the sun for 3-4 months and burn to clear all the dry leaves, trunk, debris etc. The cultivation of jhum paddy is for a period of one year only. After harvest in the month of November-December, the jhum is left uncultivated and shift to another virgin forest area for the next jhuming practices. Therefore, jhuming is the most destructive method of cultivation, environmentally unfriendly and causes adverse effect on soil health, climate, ecology and soil productivity. As such, the need for permanent and sustainable farming arises. Attempt should be made to develop permanent jhum where crops will be raised year after year on the same plot of land. Till 1950s the villagers in the rural areas of Mizoram were said to be self-sufficient in rice. The living standard was also simple and moderate with the daily needs not expensive. The villagers did not invest on modern Agriculture inputs like seeds of improved variety, fertilizers, plant protection chemicals, etc. Whenever and wherever there is a failure in their jhuming cultivation, they considered as their fate and did not take any protective nor curative measures as we do in modern Agriculture. Therefore, in a way, the practices of traditional jhuming where no chemical or synthesized inputs were used, can be called organic farming by default/tradition and the produces from jhum was to be called organic produces. Organic farming is a holistic system of farm design and management that seeks to create a healthy ecosystem with an agricultural system that promotes environmentally, socially, economically sound production of food, fibre, timber, etc. Organic agriculture significantly reduces external inputs by avoiding the use of fertilizers, pesticides, weedicides and pharmaceuticals. Instead, it works with nature to increase both Agricultural yields and disease and pests resistance. Organic Agriculture is currently practiced in more than 120 countries. European countries account for around 10% of farm land. Italy leads the way with over 50,000 certified organic farmers. Australia has the largest area of land with 1.7 million certified organic hectares. According to the survey report of IFOAM and WOEL in February,2003, India has about 41,000 hectares land under organic management which is only 0.03% of the total Agricultural land. At present, Mizoram is not self-sufficient in food grain production. The population of Mizoram according to 2001 census was 891,058 with population growth rate of 19.18%, literacy is 88.49% next to Kerala. The total geographical area of Mizoram is 21087 sq kms that lies between 92 0.15' to 93 0.29'E longitude is quite moderate ranging from 11.8 0 C-21.3 0C in winter and 20.30 0 C in summer. Average annual rainfall is 25000mm.

By definition, Agriculture is "the science or practice of farming,including cultivation of the soil for the growing of crops and therearing of animals to provide food, wool, and other products." However, when people are asked what comes to mind when they hearthe word, "agriculture," that's all they… think of: Farming.Ranching. The dirty guy wearing bib overalls chewing on a piece ofstraw; dirty, hard, laborious physical work that involves diggingin the dirt and chasing cows. The reality is that there is much more to it than that. Agricultureis deep into technology, research, genetics, engineering, financialservices, computing sciences, chemistry, mathematics, agronomy,ethology, economics, politics, marketing, sales, and many others.Agribusiness is agriculture, and agricultural marketing is alsoagriculture. Farmers and ranchers treat their farm or ranch,respectively, as a business, and must market their product in orderto get their pay--it's a job, you know! People who don't farm areinvolved in creating and supplying products that go directly tofarmers and ranchers, or take the products that come from farms andranches and send them to other suppliers which turn them intothings like clothing, horse tack, tennis shoes or footballs. Beefis marketed and imported to other countries. Mechanics work tobuild tractors. Engineers work on creating the latestfuel-efficient, computerized engine for a new model of combineharvester. Researchers find better ways to produce more feedefficient cows or develop a more drought-resistant hybrid of corn,or work in sterile laboratories doing genetic research on wheat orhogs. The message is, agriculture isn't all dirty, stinky, physical work.There's a lot of sterile, mental and managerial jobs associatedwith it and heavily involved in it. Farmers can't operate alone inthis world without all those other people that create products forfarmers so that farmers can produce food.Agriculture is most commonly known as farming. The growing of cropsand raising stock for consumption. The science or practicing off farming. Examples growingfood,rearing of animals to get food. xander (MORE)

If you like to eat, I would suggest supporting it. Those in the business of food, fiber, and fuel production need the support of all consumers of their products. For example, if you support organic food production, then buy as much as you can and ask farmers in your area if they will produce it …for you. I'm not suggesting the support of something to which you object. If you don't believe in animal agriculture, for example, then don't buy meat, milk, eggs, leather products, beauty products, or medicines. Agriculture is like any other industry in that it will produce what the consumer wants and is willing to pay for. (MORE)

Insects are good to agriculture because they can pollinate fruits and vegetables. Some also feed on insects who are interested in the destruction of your plants (ladybugs do this well). Others still exterminate insects and keep insect populations on the farm in check. Some also dine on the "mighty… mosquito", which (especially in Australia) is very annoying. However, many insects are very detrimental to crop production, eating plants and vectoring fungal and bacterial diseases. Farmers always have to check their fields to see which kind of insects are "winning the battle". (MORE)

Agriculture is traditionally, colloquially known as growing cropsand raising livestock for food, otherwise known as farming andranching. However, there is far more to agriculture than that.Agriculture is very diverse, with farming and ranching only theroot of it all. It is highly research-intensive …with genetic,engineering financial and economical, mechanical,computer-scientific, international commodity and many other relatedfields that surround and make up agriculture. Computing science andother computer-related technologies such as GPS andhigh-performance, fuel-efficient engines and robotics are alsoinvolved in agriculture. Agribusiness involving finances,economics, consulting, and networking are also heavily associatedwith agriculture. Agribusiness doesn't simply mean "big business,"it's also political and socio-economical, from sales to supply,from farm to farm-related businesses. . Because so much is involved in agriculture, it is very difficult tohighlight the steps involved. One could easily apply the stepsinvolved for growing a year's yield of corn or wheat, but that isonly seeing part of the forest. As such, the last part of thisquestion cannot be accurately answered. However, part of theoriginal answer is kept for an example of the steps involved withraising crops.. To get a good crop, farmers have to follow a number steps likeploughing, sowing, watering, harvesting and storing the crop. . Ploughing is the digging up of soil to prepare it for growingcrops. It is done with the help of a plough which is pulled eitherby animals or by tractors. . Then the weeds are removed with the help of a rake. The soil isbroken down into lumps and smoothened with the help of aharrow. . Once the soil is ready, different crops are grown. Healthy andripe seeds of the best variety are selected and sown. . Crops grow well if they get the right amount of water at theright time. Watering can be done by several ways. . The soil is made more fertile by adding manure or fertilizerinto it. Manure is obtained from animal and plant wastes. . Protecting the growing crops from diseases and harmful insectsis done by spraying insecticides and pesticides. . It is very important to store the harvested crops properly. (MORE)

When the ancient people looked into the night sky, it would have been impossible for them not to notice that the planets not only rotated in the sky with the other stars, but that they also changed position every night. To them, these stars must have represented something more powerful, so they made… them sacred to the gods they felt they represented. Later, when Rome came into prominence, they added the Greek's astronomical and astrological knowledge to their own, but replaced the Greek names with Latin ones. The fastest moving was made sacred to Hermes, and later named Mercury. The brightest and most beautiful was made sacred to Aphrodite. The Romans called it "Lucifer". Later it was named Venus, harkening back to the Greek roots. The red tinted one was made sacred to Ares and later named Mars. The one that dominated the night sky, and nearly as bright as Venus, was made sacred to Zeus, and later named Jupiter. The faint one that seemed to lope slowly across the sky, looking as if it were peering over Jupiter's shoulder, was made sacred to Kronos, and later named Saturn. Later astronomers, when they discovered the farther planets, kept with this tradition and named the planets after Greek or Roman mythological figures. The moons, asteroids and dwarf planets are bear names from mythology. (MORE)
