Madivalappa Totagi, an organic farmer based in Mugad village near Dharwad, is known for his innovative approach and eco-friendly farming methods. This year, his experiment reached a new level with the cultivation of 20 heritage jowar varieties.

Harsimrat warns against genetically modified mustard 21.5.2017 Deccan Herald - National
As GM Mustard awaits Centre's nod for commercial cultivation, Food Processing Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal has cautioned that the introduction of genetically modified (GM) food may hit India's prospects in cashing in on the global demand for organic food. "There are many food importing nations that are looking at India rather than China or other countries because they view us as a non-GM nation. They say our food is safe," Harsimrat told DH. She was responding to a question on the Genetic Engineering Appraisal Committee (GEAC) approval for commercial cultivation of genetically modified mustard. "I feel anything connected with food must be backed up with solid research and we must be very sure of what we are going into," the minister said. Harsimrat made it clear that she has neither spoken to any of the stakeholders nor has she got the access to scientific studies that have gone into it. 'Based on facts' "I am basing my comments purely on the fact that many countries have told us that they want to ...

The Green Path-Forgotten Food' in Malleswaram offers organic food choices and also provides a suitable venue for eco-friendly get-togethers. But worry not, the food here isn't bland and boring. Rather, it's wholesome and tasty. The place has a nice relaxed ambience and does justice to the name with plenty of refreshing greens around. The decor is simple yet lively. The furniture and flooring are made out of waste wood. And everything you eat here comes from the terrace garden that's right above the restaurant. The food, they say, is completely organic. Previously a lawyer, Jayaram started this restaurant last year. Hailing from a small village on the Karnataka-Tamil Nadu border, he has a deep-rooted attachment with nature.
