Abstract: Sikkim is not self-sufficient in food production due to limited land availability for cultivation and lower level of productivity affected by constraining mountain specificities such as inaccessibility, fragility and marginality. The people are rich in indigenous knowledge on bio-resources and supplemented their food from the wild plants and animals in the beginning. Now, fifteen types of indigenous farming systems have been identified, and these farming systems and wild boi-resource supplements have been described along with field verification study.
