Abstract: Developing agricultural sustainability by harnessing Indigenous Knowledge often referred to as Traditional Knowledge. Innovations and practices derived out of success stories from rural locale provided zeal to research scholars to probe into these systems of empowerment. Educational initiatives ranging from classroom culture to farmer centered knowledge require a thorough research investigation and ultimately need to be introduced in higher education. Rich cultural heritage and knowledge dimensions, which have natural tendency to diminish with spatio-temporal changes need to be protected and is required to be brought back either in its native form or slightly modified form. Either of these may be, advantageous for agricultural productivity. Indigenous knowledge, which is centered on beliefs, practices and traditional technologies, is required to be documented through systematic planned approach by educational initiatives. As a prelude to educational initiatives, documenting Indigenous Knowledge, through established protocols may be the primary requirement. This includes community, individual and public domain knowledge systems, so that the existing data structures and efforts of organizations working to document this knowledge system are strengthened.
