Shaji, the Tuber Man of Kerala bagged the India Biodiversity Award of 2020


Mr.Shaji. N.M. affectionately called as ‘Tuber Man of Kerala’ has bagged the India Biodiversity Award for the category ‘Conservation of Domesticated Species (Individual)’. He has collected a large number of tuberous plants from all over India, which he displays to tourists and the local community on his farm named ‘Kedaram’ in Kerala’s Wayanad District. Currently, Shaji has two hundred different types of tubers in his collection, including six wild varieties. His list of species has been included in the Edavaka PBR of Wayanad District. He has educated other farmers and students of various agricultural institutions too on the value of his crops. He encourages school children to come and see his collection and explains to them the nutritional and medicinal properties of the tubers. Shaji deserves to be called a model farmer with an ultimate degree of social consciousness which is evident from his highly passionate activities. Shaji not only has his collection of tubers but also a pool of information on all classes of tubers starting from Dioscorea, Cassava and yam and as many varieties and cultivars as possible.
