    Solution:

    Shifting cultivation was a popular cultivation practice that was discouraged by the Europeans upon their arrival in India.
    European colonisation significantly impacted shifting cultivation, often known as 'swidden agriculture'. It is a traditional agricultural method in many regions of Asia, Africa, and South America. In this style of agriculture, portions of the forest are burnt down to be cultivated. After the first monsoon rains, seeds are sowed in the ashes, and the crop is harvested between October and November. However, the Europeans considered this practice to harm the forest and discouraged it in India. They believed that land that was only occasionally utilised for farming could not support the growth of trees for railroad timber.
