Beohari is a town and a nagar panchayat in Shahdol district in the state of Madhya Pradesh, India. It is 79.07 km away from its District Main City Shahdol. It is 412 km away from State capital Bhopal.


The name Beohari stems from the title-prefix Beohar and signifies the fact that the town was founded by a member of the Beohar-dynasty. The Beohars were Rani Durgavati's prime-ministers and knight-commanders who were also Jagirdars of Jabalpur and their descendants continue to thrive there. The most notable of the Beohars was Sardar-Beohar Adhar Simha who represented the Gond-kingdom in Emperor Akbar's court, and the last Jagirdar of Jabalpur was Beohar Raghuvir Sinha. Different members of the Beohar lineage founded different Beohari which are scattered in the Mahakoshal region of Madhya Pradesh. Albeit, it is not clear which member of this Beohar lineage founded Shahdol's Beohari.

A Mustard Field in Akhetpur, Beohari.

Agriculture is counted as the chief economic occupation of the People. From recent years mustard farming has become one of the most harvested crop in Beohari due to balanced temperatures and the soil of the field which is loose, friable and deep.

The main crops are paddy, cereals like maize, Sorghum, kodo-kutki and other small millets, pulses like tuar and udhad and oil seeds like Til, groundnut, soya-bean and sunflower are also grown.

A very substantial portion of the population is dependent on agriculture. Mainly the tribals are marginal farmers and they prefer the cultivation in the old traditional method. The size of the fields are also very small. The yearly yield of the products from the fields are not enough for their home use. Hence, for the rest part of the year they work for daily wages.

Being a mountainous area, only 9% of the total crop gets irrigation facility. Tribals prefer the cultivation in the old traditional method and depend mainly on rain. The area irrigated by canals, tubewells, dugwells and tanks. Some part of the place are in the shore of Banas River & Jhapar Rivar. In this area was mainly production of wheat and rice in India. In Beohari the highest number of growing wheat. For agriculture there are many rivers in the area they known as sonbhadra (son river), banas samdhen, and jhapar. In this area a dam was built in 2001, created by m.p. government and we also called shivraj government. This dam is very helpful for agriculture.


Sal, Amla, Teak, Sarai and Shisham are the main trees found in this tehsil. The flower of Mahua and Guli provide us edible oil. Mahua flower is mostly used for making wine by tribal people.
