Agriculture in Kerala is caught in between the devil and the deep blue sea. Kerala is going back to her traditional Organic Farming after her hundreds of farmers had learnt the bitter lessons of ” Chemical Farming ” and mono cropping hitherto practised as ” Scientific Agriculture “. The Dept of Agriculture is now promoting the production of Organic Food by launching ” Jaiva Kerala ” ( The Organic Sustainability of Kerala ). The Confederation of Indian Industry & a few Tourism Groups are branding ” Gods’s Own Country”, as the Tourism Industry calls Kerala, a ” Safe Food Destination”.
