Agriculture is one of the most important economic activities practiced in the country as well as in Jammu And Kashmir State since time immemorial. It’s simply means rearing of plants and animals. It is also considered as a backbone of the economy. The state is also an agricultural state where most of the people are directly or indirectly dependent on agriculture. It contributes nearly 60% of the state revenue which satisfactorily explains the over dependence of the state on agriculture. About 92% of the geographical area of the state consists of high mountains and only 5% of land is available for cultivation. Over 27% of the total area of the state is under forests. Permanent pastures cover 5.16% of the area, 14% of land is non-agricultural and a slight more 9% is barren land. “The state has been declared as agriculture export zone for apples and walnut.” Doda district constitutes as one of the agricultural based region of the state. As compared to other districts Doda has some unique geographical characteristics which make it different from rest of the state. It has very rugged and mountainous terrain and uneven topography. The area can also be called as the land of lofty mountains, deep gorges, valleys and meadows, showing great variation in elevation. The district includes Greater Himalaya, Lesser Himalaya and Pir Panjal ranges which are interwoven by numerous small forested hills leaving a limited space for cultivation. Except for Chenab and small river valleys, the topography of the district is mountainous and forested and many areas are covered with snow during winter season. The district includes a few plain and low level areas with a minimum height of 740 meters. Instead of all these obstacles the practice of agriculture are still carried out and is relevant theme for discussion.
