Revival of Traditional Paddy Varieties

REVIVAL OF TRADITIONAL PADDY VARIETIES

India had 3 lakhs paddy varieties in India and now we have hardly 1800 varieties left. Such diversity we had. One for drought, one for flood, one for each soil type and season. We also had nurtured paddy with medicinal qualities.

The short term high yielding paddy varieties have lot of difficulties in growth. Unlike the traditional ones, they need more fertilisers, pesticides and fungicides.

It’s very important to revive our traditional paddy varieties to boost the sustainable agriculture practices in India.
