Abstract: The Traditional knowledge of a community in a particular region is derived from the local people's farming experience and is handed down from previous generations to present generations. It entails many insights, perceptions, and intuitions, relating to agricultural practices, health, local environment, etc. It is often stressed that traditional storage methods are the product of decades, if not centuries of development, perhaps by trial and error, but certainly as a result of experience of the users and their ancestors. Traditional storage methods based on local resources, at producer level are usually well adapted to all the types of grain and the environment in which they are employed. Consequently, storage losses are often already minimal. In this paper, traditional method of grain storing practices at producer level prevalent in Himachal Pradesh is briefly discussed.
