A good majority of the growers – both small and medium – has planted this variety “and we are benefited by it”, they said. The innovation come out with three new planting methods and around 95 per cent of the cardamom farming community, they said, has whole-heartedly accepted the findings, and consequently could raise the production by five-fold.
