case studies are interspersed with snatches of life in an idyllic pastoral setting where traditional agricultural practices are in vogue, as a counterpoint. A farmer activist, Vijay Jardhari, who is part of a movement to revive traditional agricultural practices (Beej Bachao Andolan), in the Himalayas narrates this. He provides a peep into sustainable agricultural systems, which could be an answer to the present crisis in Indian agriculture.

The 'Beej Bachao Andolan' (BBA), begun here in the late 1980s, is fifteen years old. Led by farmer and social activist Vijay Jardhari, the 'Andolan' has made village Jardhargaon of district Tehri famous for its unique movement to save the traditional seeds of the hills.On starting the Beej Bachao Andolan, 52-year-old Vijay Jardhari says, "After the Green Revolution of the 1960s, farmers in the hills also adopted high-yielding varieties of seeds. After initial success, the Green Revolution fizzled out as the yields began to decline. This made the villagers realize that so called modern agriculture was unsustainable. Low production despite increased investments on pesticides and fertilizers, as well as decline in soil fertility, forced us to think of corrective measures."The 'Beej Bachao Andolan' (Save the Seeds Movement) is not only a crusade to conserve traditional seeds but also to promote agricultural biodiversity, sustainable agriculture and local traditions.The Beej Bachao Andolan has prepared a comparison chart of high-yielding varieties of seeds and traditional seeds to clear the confusion among farmers.
The Beej Bachao Andolan activists now hold regular meetings to reinforce their efforts to protect fast dissipating indigenous seeds.

This is sacrilege. Farmers in Uttarakhand have been growing mandua and jhangora for generations, successfully maintaining high productivity. Over time, they have developed diverse, locally suitable and beneficial varieties. The small farmers’ movement Beej Bachao Andolan itself has 12 different varieties of mandua and eight varieties of jhangora in its collection -- all local varieties collected from different parts of Uttarakhand -- that farmers have been actively growing. Although in Tehri district jhangora seeds are not yet being provided as part of INSIMP, because the department does not have any, the state’s premier GB Pant University of Agriculture and Technology has developed a jhangora variety at its research station in Majhera (Nainital district) that is being given to people as part of a demonstration, for over five years. However, the farmers’ response to this variety has been largely negative as it lacks the taste of local varieties and, more importantly, provides very little fodder, an important product of the crop.

According to Vijay Jarhdhari of Beej Bachao Andolan, in whose fields practical exercises were carried out, “Our traditional practices of selecting and conserving good seeds -- and even developing new varieties through natural pollination -- is firmly scientific, but this training adds a further dimension to our farming capacity which will play an important role in increasing and strengthening our seed diversity, with attendant benefits.”
