Name the farming in which a patch of land is cleared and burned for cultivation.

The ‘slash and burn’ method of farming known as ‘Jhumming cultivation’ in India is practiced generally by tribal people. It is also known as shifting cultivation. In this system, forest land is cleared for raising crops until the soil loses its fertility. With the loss of soil fertility, the farmer moves to newer forest lands often leading to severe environmental degradation.
