Sugarcane farmers switch to flowers and soya bean

Why? Due to unpredictable rains & groundwater depletion.

  1. Government-sponsored ‘Beyond Sugarcane’ movement has gathered pace in the dry district of Osmanabad, with thousands of farmers taking to soyabean, tur & horticulture, and most importantly Gerbera.
  2. Government says that contrary to earlier practice of having bore wells, sugarcane farmers have to compulsorily employ drip irrigation.

    Do you have any clue what Gerbera is?
