ANDHRA PRADESH

Old seed festival

VISAKHAPATNAM: The fourth annual Patha Vittanala Pandaga (old seed festival) will be held at Shantinagar, Anjoda near Araku on April 30.

The Sanjeevani Rural Development Society and the Samata are organising the old seed festival to collect and store seed to maintain biodiversity and ensure food security in the tribal area.

Tribal farmers enthusiastically participate in this Pandaga putting on display the seed of different crops they have produced and preserved.

Prizes will be given for the largest variety and best-preserved seed.
