Abstract:  Increasing environmental concerns and emphasis on evergreen revolution calls for sustainable and ecofriendly practices. Indigenous technical knowledge which is a result of years of experimentation and observations by farmers along with modern scientific technology can meet the above mentioned challenges. A study was conducted in Malwa region of Punjab state of India to identify the traditional practices and to know the scientific basis of these practices, if any. Traditional practices were identified from well experienced farmers from 12 villages through interviews and focus group techniques. Scientific basis was discussed with biological scientists on three point continuum. Majority of the identified indigenous practices were said to be scientifically agreeable, having scientific basis which needs further standardization.
