Why India's farmers want to conserve indigenous heirloom rice

from The Guardian

India is rice country: the cereal provides daily sustenance for more than 60 percent of the population. Half a century ago, it was home to more than 100,000 rice varieties, encompassing a stunning diversity in taste, nutrition, pest-resistance and, crucially in this age of climate change and natural disasters, adaptability to a range of conditions.
