How can slash and burn agriculture become environment friendly?

The slashing and burning of agriculture, also known as Jhum farming, have also contributed to deforestation. In this type of planting, farmers cut down the forest trees and burn the crop residues. The ashes obtained thus act as a fertilizer. The land is then used for farming. This is practiced in small areas that are widely dispersed to protect forests and to be environmentally friendly.
