The Dahkur Province was a region on Bajor, dominated by agricultural use. One notable exception were the Dahkur Hills, an impassable area that included the Kola Mountain, Tanis Canyon, Ratosha Pass and Serpent's Ridge.
Due to this rough mountain terrain, the Bajoran Resistance was able to survive in the Dahkur Province better than in other regions of Bajor. The resistance cell led by Shakaar Edon used these mountains as an advantage, a group which even Gul Dukat admitted that the Cardassians were not able to effectively suppress. (DS9: "Shakaar")
In 2371, the Bajoran Agricultural Ministry developed soil reclamators that could detoxify the soil. Kai Winn Adami, during her brief tenure as First Minister, ordered the reclamators be deployed to Rakantha in the hopes of growing cash crops for export, such as boton, moreka, and salam grass. However, the reclamators had already been promised to Dahkur Province, and Winn's attempts to force their early removal nearly led to civil war. (DS9: "Shakaar")
