NPR: Edible Archives Project Aims To Revive Hundreds Of Vanishing Indian Rice Strains

NPR: Edible Archives Project Aims To Revive Hundreds Of Vanishing Indian Rice Strains. “During the Green Revolution in the 1960s, when machinery replaced manual work and ‘high-yield variety’ seeds were promoted, agricultural output increased dramatically, but a few hybrid rice strains took over from hundreds of indigenous ones. The Edible Archives Project aims to showcase the sheer range of rice varieties grown in India, and throw the spotlight specifically on those which have almost vanished from the country’s foodscape or are grown only in small communities.”
