Himachal community not only tackled crop failure, but raised a bumper crop!

Climate change is affecting farmers across the globe and leading to massive crop failures. However, heres an example of how a community in rural Himachal Pradesh has not just tackled climate change head-on but used traditional skills combined with modern technology to reap huge profits from crop diversification and switched to alternate crops in line with changed climatic patterns in the region.

The residents of Dhamoon and neighbouring villages in Shimla district have efficiently demonstrated how farmers can grow crops under controlled conditions, and adapt to climate change and erratic precipitation.
