And the same system that drives farmers into a debt trap also creates malnutrition. Chemical monocultures and commodity production displace biodiversity which is a source of nutrition. Green Revolution monocultures destroyed our pulses and oilseeds which were always grown as a mixture with cereals. Today in the land of urad and moong, tur and chana, gahat and naurangi, we are importing “yellow pea dal” and in the land of til and mustard, alsi and coconut we are importing GMO soya oil and palm oil. There is a push to introduce GMO mustard. If we ignore growing nutritious biodiverse crops, malnutrition is a predictable outcome. If we grow food with toxic chemicals, then disease related to poisons will increase.
