Abstract:  Agrobiodiversity focuses on that part of bio¬≠diversity that has undergone selection and modification over millennia by human civilization to better serve human needs. Agrobiodiversity evolves as a direct consequence of social, cultural and institutional conditions at a given place. The study was carried out to evaluate the agrobiodiversity potential of Nagaland state in Northeastern India. The productivity for cereals, tubers and oil seeds were found to be higher under Mokokchung Sadar as compared to the other two sub-divisions. The traditional method of cultivation coupled with the scientific innovation and modification boost the productivity in Mokokchung Sadar. Though the crops are produced mainly for the self consumption, during the peak seasons some food crops like maize, tubers and vegetables are sold in the market to earn some additional income. The market is also well developed and easily assessable in case of Mokokchung Sadar whereas the other two sub-divisions the marketability of their products is a big problem which discourages them to go for the cultivation of these crops in larger quantities.
