We have got the Pokkali farming method from our ancestors and they were doing it very well, but somewhere we have lost it somehow. Now it is on the verge of being obsolete. It is our primary commitment to support such native cultivation methods and to prevent them from extinction.
About 75 students participated in the Pokali Farming Workshop Chapter 3 designed with the intention of popularizing Pokkali farming. By covering this chapter, participants learned the transplantation of the Pokkali seedlings in uniform distance in straight rows.
Chapter Two was more exciting than the One. All participants from three different colleges, really enjoyed it very much. All the participants have done the job under the leadership of four senior experienced farm workers.
