Abstract: The paper presents four plants used as an agricultural season indicator by <i style="">Mao Naga</i> tribe of Manipur, India. Agriculture is the main occupation of the tribe and they have a unique way of knowing plantation season for different crops by observing the flowering of some plants. The indicator plants are peach (<i>Prunus persica</i>), wild cherry (<i>P. carmesina</i>), camel foot (<i>Bauhinia purpurea</i>) and dancing girl (<i>Mantisia spathulata</i>). The information on plants used as season indicators may help understanding the global warming and climate change in recent years. There is a need for involving interdisciplinary research to unveil the mystery of folklore science for the prosperity of mankind
