Untimely coffee flowering worries growers 10.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News

The untimely flowering of Robusta coffee in the midst of the harvesting season has put the growers in hardship.

Normally Robusta coffee flowers during February-March. Climate change with the untimely rains due to Cyclone Ockhi has resulted in the flowering of the plants even when the harvesting is in full swing.

"Harvesting of beans on the flowering plants will cause withering of the flowers and affect fruit setting," feel the growers.

Coffee grower Kushalappa said, "the cloudy weather affects the drying of coffee beans as well."

The coffee growers are also facing the problem of shortage of labourers. And the untimely flowering will affect the coffee production.

Pinarayi Vijayan govt mulls promotion of 'green habitat' concept in Kerala 3.12.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
Amid concerns about unscientific construction practises, the Kerala government is considering promoting a 'green habitat' concept giving thrust to eco-friendly and reusable building materials, natural water storage and solid waste management. Haritha Keralam Mission, the state-run agency which envisages a clean and green state, has initiated an initial round of discussion with various experts and stakeholders in this regard, official sources here said. An alternative and sustainable architecture practice would be promoted in place of the existing conventional mode of construction under the 'green habitat' concept, they said. The buildings, under the concept, are planned to be designed in such a way that natural sunlight and wind would be used to maximum and the usage of electricity reduces to the minimum. A rainwater harvesting or natural water storage system would be a sure feature of such 'green' buildings, where even kitchen and drainage water would be recycled and reused for other household purposes, ...

Pipeline to Kolar chokes Varthur Lake 30.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Tons of debris and mud dumped right inside the canal linking Bellandur with Varthur lakes are a clear violation of the National Green Tribunal (NGT)s 75m buffer zone restrictions. But they have an official sanction: The Minor Irrigation departments pipeline project to take treated water from the city to Kolar. In Bellandur Ammanikere, adjacent to the new BWSSB Sewage Treatment Plants (STP), the dumping has reduced the canal to a narrow strip. Truckloads of debris and mud are being unloaded deep inside the canal boundary. While no attempt is made to clear the existing encroachments, the pipeline project could end up threatening the very existence of Varthur lake, warn lake experts. The project was conceived in 2015 to use Bengalurus treated sewage water to recharge the groundwater level in Kolar. The plan is to send the water to 121 parched tanks in Kolar and five in Chikkaballapur for agricultural use. Construction work had begun in July 2016, and the project is expected to be completed in 2018. The ...
