The scientists of CSIR-CIMAP visited Sirkazhi, Nagapattinam, Tamil Nadu on 23rd August 2019 and interacted with the farmers about the possibilities of introducing aromatic crops which are tolerant to drought and floods. The farmers of Sirkazhi, a coastal area, face severe threat to their crops both because of water scarcity on the one hand and cyclones on the other. The recent Gaja cyclone has totally devastated their coconut and banana plantations.

 

During the visit, the planting material of Lemongrass and Vetiver was also distributed to the farmers. The crop from the planting material provided last year is performing well.
