Gird (also can be known as Gopasetra in ancient times, or Gwalior region later) is a region of Madhya Pradesh state in central India. It includes the districts of Bhind, Gwalior, Morena, Sheopur, and Shivpuri. Gwalior is the largest city in the region, and its historic center.
The Chambal and Yamuna rivers form the northwestern and northern boundaries of the region. Hadoti region of Rajasthan lies to the southwest, Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh lies to the south, and Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh lies to the east. Gird is sometimes considered part of Bundelkhand.
The region is one of the Agro-climatic zones of India, characterized by alluvial, loamy soils, rainfall of 800 to 1000 mm/year, and winter temperatures that sometimes drop below zero degrees Celsius. Major crops in the region include Mandarin and sweet oranges and limes under assured irrigation, and guava, ber, aonla, and custardapple without irrigation, as well as coriander, chillies, garlic, and seasonal vegetables.
