Treading the sustainable path

'TheUnited Nations has underlined the vital role of family farming in feeding the world and caring for the earth by declaring 2014 as year of family farming. Syed Ghani Khan and Syeda Firdouse’s family in Malavalli Taluk is a substantial model of Indian farming scenario which of course is changing in the recent past.

Khan’s farm stands unique with a verdant tapestry of 700 paddy varieties dotted with 120 types of mango. This distinct ecosystem is the result of a farmer’s enthusiasm and constant effort with constructive involvement of his family.  Such collective efforts hold significance both for safeguarding ecological balance and meeting nutritional needs of the farm and the family.

Ghani Khan family’s efforts in bio-diverse and eco-friendly farming has been documented by journalist Anandteertha Pyati and published by Centre for Agricultural Media. The book is the nineteenth in the series by CAM to focus on positive efforts in the farming sector. The book was released on March 31, 2014 at Nagathihalli in Mandya district.
