  • High level of diversity in the upland farming systems which do not allow the uniform package of practices for agricultural  development.
  • Limited opportunities for expanding arable farming to maintain the fragile hill ecosystem
  • Difficulty in promoting mechanized agriculture on sloping land
  • Limited availability or access to improved varieties of seeds planting material 
  • High dependency of hill farmers on rice cultivation as staple food
  • Increasing population density in the upland areas resulting  in more pressure on natural resources necessitating a shorter fallow cycles of jhumming, encroachment on forest land extending agriculture on steep sloping lands
