Agriculture is the backbone of Uttarakhand and is practiced my many people especially those living in the hilly areas of Uttarakhand. The main limitations of Uttarakhand farmers are small land holdings and destruction of their food crops by the wild animals. Some high-value crops like rose, which would be able to provide appreciable amount of returns to the farmers from a small land holding and not affected by wild animals, was introduced in the hilly tracts of Uttarakhand in an area of around 6 hectares. This may enhance the income of farmers to prevent exodus of youth to urban areas. Four awareness programmes were organized at different locations which were attended by 160 farmers.
