Abstract: 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 Coimbatore and Erode districts, in the western zone of Tamil Nadu with an objective of documenting the indigenous technologies adopted by the dry land farmers. Documentation of indigenous technologies was done adopting both individual and group approach. The paper describes five indigenous technologies involving cow-based products used by farmers for various purposes and an analysis on its impact. It is hoped to help the farmers to understand and exchange the cheaper, viable and reliable technologies in their areas.
