“People who live around here think I’m out of my senses for growing millets and taking to traditional seeds. But farming by natural methods is what is going to save our soil and environment in the long run,” says Karunakara Sethupathy, a farmer from Kanakankudi near Tiruppavanam.

In his five-and-a-half-acre land, Mr.Sethupathy has planted millets including ‘Kuthiraivali’ and has plans to start mushroom cultivation too.
