Arunachal Pradesh being essentially hilly with deep valley and high mountain peaks traversed by a number of rivers and rivulets, has varying agro-climatic zones. At present the state agriculture is transforming from the traditional slash-and burn practice (Jhum Cultivation) of agriculture towards settled and diversified agriculture. 

Arunachal Pradesh has the potential to enhance the income of farmers by promotion of location specific crops, horticulture, fisheries and livestock production by use of appropriate technologies and strategies suitable for diverse agro-climatic regions with tropical climate in valleys and foothills.
