Marigold - An acceptable alternative of opium
Cultivation of Posta (opium poppy) : A crop harmful for both human beings and the environment was being cultivated in a large area in left wing extremism (LWE) affected Chatra district.
Farmers unhesitatingly accepted that they were cultivating posta for higher income in spite of knowing about the harmful effects of this crop.
In order to understand the perspectives of the farmers, their attitude and likings, a meeting was convened at Gidhour block head quarter of the district.
KVK scientist put forth so many options like vegetable, spice and flower cultivation which could give similar benefit as compared to posta without harmful effects.
Ultimately after rigourous discussion the farmers in the leadership of Promod Dangi became ready to cultivate marigold in place of posta.
KVK conducted frontline demonstrations (FLD) on marigold (Var. orange drop and lemon drop) in 1ha land of Promod Dangi.
