Abstract: Shifting cultivation or slash and burn is also known as jhum cultivation in the North-eastern part of India. It is interwoven into the cultural and traditions of for most of the tribals people in the region. The information from the study states that though sometimes jhum is held responsible for the forest fire, it is not solely responsible for the depletion of forest resources and degrading the environment. Earlier the jhum cycle was about 20–30 years, however, growing human population and increasing anthropogenic pressure on land has reduced the cycle to 5-6 years. And the main emphasis of the KVK is to provide vocational training course to the farmers in the field agriculture in order to make them update with the latest agriculture technologies and to develop their socio-economic condition. The study on how jhum are cultivated and the farmers-KVK relation was carried out in Hengkot village, Churachandpur, Manipur.
