The central aim of this study was to identify lessons that can be learned from the indigenous Chena cultivation techniques to address the contemporary agricultural problems. Data for the study were drawn from a field survey conducted in a historically significant area for Chena cultivation—the Kapugollawa agrarian division in the Rajarata region of the country—during the period from May to August, 2014. By employing qualitative research approach, 40 experienced adult farmers, mostly over 70 years of age were interviewed.
