Abstract: Modernization of Indian agriculture has caused extinction of several Indigenous agricultural practices which once played a vital role in bringing down the dependency of our farmers. Preservation of food grains through indigenous methods is considered as one of the most important traditional ways in our Indian agriculture from time immemorial. The objective of the paper is to rejuvenate the vanished grain storage structures which have been in vogue until recent times, as one of the measures to meet out the challenges posed by globalization.
