DRDO developing agricultural technologies for locals and army in high altitude areas of Eastern Ladakh

Close to the sites of the ongoing confrontation between Indian and Chinese troops in Eastern Ladakh, the Defence Research and Development Organisation has been researching and developing agricultural technologies for crop cultivation in the cold temperatures and high altitude areas in the region that have largely been adopted by border villages. The DRDO has also been helping the army, deployed in forward locations where accessibility is restricted, in using crop cultivation techniques suited for that environment to ensure a regular supply of fresh food.

The Defence Institute of High Altitude Research (DIHAR), a DRDO lab based in Leh, has been contributing to the agro-animal development of the Ladakh region by providing training programs on the cultivation techniques and technologies that it has developed for locals at places such as Shyok, Darbuk, Tangtse and Demchok
