Introduction

As part of our innovative project we, the Class V students visited the State Seed Farm in Trivandrum with our teacher Mrs. V Jalajakumari in the school bus. There we met the agricultural officer Mrs. Maya. She took us to the paddy field and explained all the process in paddy cultivation. She said that the time duration is different for different types of paddy. She discussed about the methods of cultivation, the manures used, irrigation of the crops and the problems faced by our farmers. There was an interesting interactive session with her and we came back to school in the afternoon.

Our teacher also told us about the miserable life led by the farmers. She told that in recent years many farmers are committing suicide.  So we collected more information about the farmers. Many of the farmers hardly find enough money to survive. All of them are working from dawn to dusk. We know food is very precious like water. We cannot live with out food. Lakhs of people in the world are not getting enough food to eat. Thousands of children in our country are dying every year without nutritious food. So when we waste the hard earned food it is a crime against God and mankind. We should practice to preserve food from childhood. Dear friends, when we waste food think about the hard work of the farmers and the thousands of children dying of malnutrition.

Discussion

The most essential or the staple crop of Kerala is the rice or paddy. Paddy cultivation is the part and parcel of our culture and it is the State's major food crop. But now a days our farmers are facing many problems.
