In hills, the productivity of crops is low not only because of climatic, biotic and abiotic factors, but also owing to traditional methods of crop cultivation. Therefore, to obtain the sustainable crop yield, it is often necessary to develop suitable package of practices; besides management of biotic and abiotic stresses. Notwithstanding the importance of continuous efforts for development of new agro-techniques for augmenting crop productivity, a vast array of methods and package of practices are already available today for stabilizing and improving the yield of the crops grown in hills. Available new crop production and forage and fodder production management have been discussed in detail. Suggestions on future needs on issues such as moisture conservation, soil conservation, nutrient management, cropping system including farming systems etc. have been given.
