Abstract: The local farmers possess an immense knowledge of their environment. An effort was made to carryout a research on the conservation and testing of nitrogen effect over the location specific indigenous paddy varieties in purposively selected tribals’ villages from Dindori Developmental Block of Dindori district, Madhya Pradesh. The results indicate that tribal farmers have developed location specific knowledge to identify varied micro-farming situations and accordingly they grow and conserve number of indigenous paddy varieties. Study suggests that instead of macro, the micro level of planning of research and conservation strategy would be required for sustaining the biodiversity and related socio-ecological systems.
