KALPETTA: The leaders of the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary Farmers' Welfare Committee (WWLSFWC) and Wayanad Prakruthi Samrakshana Samithi, an environmental organisation in the district, have welcomed the decision of the empowerment committee of the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests for implementing the rehabilitation of the trapped farming communities inside the Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary.

The environmental committee of the Sasthra Sahitya Parishad district committee has demanded the government to curb the increasing number of brick making units and unscientific granite mining in the district.

Integrated farming is emerging as a viable proposition for farmers in Kerala, given its geographical and weather conditions, as can be inferred from the experience of a successful farmer in Wayanad.
