Thousands of women farmers in Bengal profit from growing organic indigenous rice


Among the indigenous rice varieties cultivated in the area are Kalabhat (black rice), Mallifullo (brown rice), Kerala Sundari (aromatic rice), and Sathia (red rice). The price of these indigenous varieties is three times higher than other varieties.

PRADAN, a non-government organization, has been training women in the cultivation, processing, and marketing of their harvests.
