About this Item

The book of verse titled Krishi Gita, written in four parts by an anonymous author (s) in ?old? Malayalam language, contains a wealth of information about the agricultural practices of Malayalam desam (contemporary kerala) and the nearby regions (parts of present-day Tamil Nadu and Karnataka) of India. Compiled at an unspecified time in history, Krishi Gita epitomized the equivalent of the present-day recommended ?package of practices? for crop production. It covers a wide spectrum of crops including cereals, pulses, vegetables, fruits, and nuts, grown in Kerala since time immemorial, and many aspects of crop production such as varieties, cultural practices, and pest incidence in a lucid style. Also included are aspects relating to agricultural water management, tillage operations (including the implements used), and animal husbandry (e.g., how to select a bullock pair for draught purposes, and where in the farm to construct a cattle shed). Printed Pages: 119. Bookseller Inventory # 2007
