The Tarai Tract

  Tarai lies South of Bhabar.

  It is 15-30 km wide with its width increasing from west to east. (Note: this is opposite from the Bhabar plains).

  This is a zone of excessive dampness, thick forests, rich wild life and malarial climate.

  This zone is formed as the rivers which got submerged in Bhabar plains reemerge in this region.

  In most of the northern states, from Haryana to Bihar, the Tarai forests have been cleared and plains are used for agriculture now.

  The Tarai belt is known for the cultivation of Sugarcane, rice, wheat, maize, oil seeds, pulses and fodder.
