Which of the following practices has caused maximum damage to the diversity of Indian forests?

A

Selective harvesting

B

Block cutting

C

Taungya cultivation

D

Jhum cultivation

Answer

Jhum cultivation, also known as the slash and burn agriculture, is the process of growing crops by first clearing the land of forests and burning them thereafter. It is also known as shifting agriculture. The burnt soil contains potash which helps in increasing the nutrient content of the soil. This process has led to the maximum damage to the Indian forests as they are cleared for this process.
So, the correct answer is 'Jhum cultivation'.
