The present study deals with climbing weeds associated with agricultural crops of district Rajouri (J&K). The study was based on extensive and intensive field surveys made during the period 2009-2011, in different months of Rabi and Kharif seasons. During the course of field study the authors have selected 4 important agricultural blocks in the district Rajouri i.e. Nowshera, Sunderbani, Kalakote and Thanamandi and 5 sites were selected in each block for the collection of climbing weeds. In this period the authors have reported a total of 22 climbing weeds belonging to 9 angiospermic families from both Rabi and Kharif crops of the selected sites. Out of 9 angiospermic families of climbing weeds the predominance was shown by family Convolvulaceae having 6 climbing weeds followed by family Fabaceae and Rubiaceae each represented by 4 climbing weeds.
