Readers will find this book a valuable introduction to mixed crop-livestock agriculture in the Hindu Kush Himalayas and a useful source of background information, based on data obtained from national governments.

Selecting five HKH countries - Bhutan, China, India, Nepal, and Pakistan - the study examines three main farming components:

  • staple food crops,
  • horticultural and cash crops, and
  • livestock.
The broad trends and patterns in mixed crop-livestock mountain agriculture are identified and their implications for long-term sustainability discussed.
