Veteran Actor Raghavan to promote organic farming

Press Trust of India  |  Thiruvananthapuram 

: Veteran Malayalam actor Raghavan has said that he will devote his life to promote organic farming in Kerala.

According to him, the deluge of heavily poisoned vegetables was mainly because of the blatant commercialisation of agriculture.

"If we start our own vegetable cultivation in whatever space available at terraces and yards, the disaster can be annulled to a large extent', he said.

From now his objective would be to promote everyone who pursues organic farming besides practising the same on his own, Raghavan said inaugurating a one-day training in high-tech kitchen garden at the seminar hall of Centre for Innovation in Science and Social Action (CISSA) here.

The training was offered by Dr P Suseela, Director, High-tech Training Centre, Kerala Agriculture University, Thrissur.
