Mera Gaon – Mera Gaurav” (My Village- My Pride) at Meenja Panchayath of Kasaragod District

Under the “Mera Gaon – Mera Gaurav” (‘My Village- My Pride’) initiative, ICAR-CPCRI Scientists and coconut growers together inaugurated a Coconut Federation ‘Greenvalley’ at Meenja village of Kasaragod district, Kerala State. Under this Federation, 12 Coconut Producers’ Societies (CPS) have been registered, each with a minimum of 40 coconut growers. The main objective of the Federation is to collectively cultivate, harvest, develop value-added products and market the produce for better price. In his inaugural address, Dr. P. Chowdappa, Director, ICAR-CPCRI, highlighted the huge opportunity available with coconut producers for marketing their products both domestically and internationally which needs to be exploited by the way of value addition. The benefits would be better realized through the formation of a Federation by which way both small and marginal farmers would be immensely benefitted.

Dr. K.B. Hebbar, Head (PB & PHT), ICAR-CPCRI, gave a detailed account of ‘Kalparasa’, its  collection, marketing as a natural health drink and processing into sugar, jaggery, honey or syrup. This was followed by field demonstration of ‘Kalparasa’ tapping in farmer’s coconut garden by Dr. K.B. Hebbar, Dr. Alka Gupta and Dr. M.K. Rajesh. By adopting this technology, coconut farmers can increase their income by at least ten-folds. It will not only improve the income of coconut farmers, but also generate employment in terms of ‘Kalparasa’ technicians, assistants and marketing personnel.

Presiding over the function, the Federation President Dr. D.C. Chowta, a progressive farmer of the area, stressed on the need to adopt latest scientific technologies developed by research institutes/ agencies for maximizing the profitability and called for active cooperation and participation of each member of the Federation to realize the objectives of the Federation.Presiding over the function, the Federation President Dr. D.C.
