Abstract:  Indigenous knowledge has two powerful advantages over scientific knowledge like it has little or no cost, and is readily available. Indigenous knowledge is the accumulated knowledge, skills and technology of the local people, derived from the direct interaction of human beings and their environment. The study was conducted at remote villages of Coimbatore, Salem, Erode, Krishnagiri, Dindigul, Villupuram, Ramnad and Virudhunagar districts of Tamil Nadu with an objective of documenting the indigenous storage techniques adopted by the dry land farmers. Documentation of traditional storage practices was done by direct interview and group discussion methods. Triangulation exercise was also done in the study villages to gather reliable information about Indigenous Technical Knowledge of the dry land farmers of Tamil Nadu. In the paper, some of the identified important indigenous storage practices adopted by the dry land farmers are described.
