Abstract:
Indigenous Technological Knowledge (ITK) is an integral part of the culture and history of a local community. It is knowledge handed down from one generation to next generation through oral communication which suggests a way of common or communal ownership. It’s the systematic body of data acquired by local people through the experience, informal experiment and intimate understanding of local conditions and provides a productive context for activities designed to assist the communities. The present paper focuses on the collection and review of the ITKs in the field of soil and water conservation in Bagalkote district. The dry belt of Bagalkote district receives lesser rainfall when compared to other parts of the district and also there is lesser area under irrigation in the study area when compared to other parts of the district. Hence the ITKs are more prominently adopted in the area. An effort was made to document the soil and water conservation related ITKs in study area, and the results are supported with the similar type of studies conducted elsewhere. This paper is an effort to collect and document the literature regarding the structures to conserve soil and water constructed by farming community and being practiced since generations, and is a part of the thesis submitted to the Janapada University, Shiggaon, Haveri, and Karnataka.
