Title Grain Seed bank
Text The modern farming techniques require a lot of investment for seeds, fertilizers pesticides etc. The seed companies are purposely creating kinds of seeds that will deteriorate in the 2nd generation, e.g if a farmer buys cotton seeds and the cotton crop comes up, seeds of that crop if planted again won"t grow well. So the farmer has to buy the seeds every year.
And the rains being unpredictable, the crop output is many times poor.
Thus the investment is lost and the farmers go into debt.
For the small farmers at least organic farming seems a better option.
However the indigenous variety of seeds that we had is becoming extinct.
We need to create banks of the seeds and distribute them at a low cost to the farmers who wan to do organic farming.
