Pokkali farming is a unique community-based initiative to preserve and conserve a one of its kind, saline-tolerant strain of rice, threatened by extinction. In a stunning backwater setting, this tour gives an opportunity to understand one of the oldest known crops cultivated through a symbiotic farming tradition involving rice and prawn culture. Pokkali is known for its tolerance to salinity and hence positioned as a climate change resistant food. To reach the Pokkali backwaters area, we will join the locals as they take the ferry from Kochi to Vypeen. From there, it is an hour's drive.
