May it be acres of land or just your small backyard garden we all do our fair share of farming somewhere along. Isn’t it a pleasure to witness those tiny seeds sprout from the ground and grow to be strong green plants or trees. Majority of the population in Kerala are dependent directly or indirectly on agriculture for their livelihood. The main crops grown in the state are paddy, coconut, pepper, cashew, cassava, and plantation crops like rubber. Kerala is an Agrarian economy. Cash crops, like coconuts, rubber, tea and coffee, pepper and cardamom, cashew, areca nut, nutmeg, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and the like, give the agriculture of Kerala a distinct flavor. The story of Kerala's spices dates back to many thousands of years into the past. Our claim to fame in the ancient world rested mainly with her fabulous riches brought about due to total monopoly over spices. Another highlight would be the tea estates found in the high ranges of the state. Enjoy a trek in these rolling hills or take a private tour to a tea factory, and for all you tea lovers you know what I am getting at.
