Welcome to Asian Agri-History Foundation

A non - profit trust was established and registered in Secunderabad, India in 1994 with major objectives to unearth original documents that contained information on ancient and medieval agriculture of Asia and disseminate such information worldwide.

The AAHF was established by a group of internationally well-known agricultural scientists. Finances were raised with personal contributions of trustees and agriculture is now enriched with hitherto little known contributions made by Indian scholars and farmers through millennia.

Farmers in the region had evolved some of the most sustainable agricultural management technologies suitable for different agroecoregions.

Ironically, in the past few years, the sustainability of agriculture by following modern technologies has been questioned, and with good reasons. How can we make the agriculture in South and Southeast Asia sustainable? The trustees of AAHF believe that there is great deal to be learnt from the traditional wisdom and the indigenous, time-tested technologies that have sustained the farmers of South and Southeast Asia in the past.
