KAU initiated a mission to rejuvenate hill garlic
29 October 2018 Current Affairs:

The Kerala Agricultural University (KAU) has initiated a study on the farming practices of garlic followed in the hills of Kanthalloor and Vattavada areas of Idukki district of Kerala. This move is to promote the variety Malai poondu or hill garlic that is on the verge of extinction. 
Malai poondu or hill garlic are known for its unique flavour, pungency, taste, medicinal properties and longer shelf life, that is 180 days. Due to long duration of cultivation the tribal farmers of the area started to cultivate hybrid varieties or short duration, 90 to 120 days, varieties.
The study by KAU said that the major problems faced by the hill garlic cultivation are the small size of the bulb, lack of awareness on scientific cultivation practices and wild animal attack. KAU also suggested that by following scientific practices, the crop duration can be reduced.
