Sustainable Hill Agriculture: An Overview by Kumar A, Sharma B, Sharma V
Book Summary:

Agriculture is the predominant livelihood activity in hills. In India, this region is spread over an area of 53.8 million ha, which is inhabited by 33.7 million people of whom more than 90% live in rural setup. Agriculture is much more important for hills economy as scope for industrialization is limited due to topographical constraints and environmental concerns. There are vast forests, pastures, grazing lands, miscellaneous groves and trees, much higher rainfall, moderate temperature and intensive natural vegetation which add a lot of organic matter every year to soils. Naturally, the fertility of soils in hills is comparatively high as compared to plain areas.
