‘Murungai’ cultivation has lured many people back to farming. It promises good returns, especially under drought conditions.

In Tamil there is a saying “Murungai undavan verum kaiyyai povan – முருங்கை உண்டவன் வெறும் கையோடுதான் போவான் (Those who eat ‘murungai’ will go empty handed)” is a popular saying in the villages of south Tamil Nadu. A superficial reading of this will suggest that a person eating ‘murungai’ regularly will have nothing in his hand. But the actual meaning is that the person will not require any support, especially a stick, to walk even in his 70s. There was a time when each house had a ‘murungai’ tree in the backyard and its leaves were consumed regularly to lead a healthy life.

Our farms at Chatrapatti had to go through lot of trouble from the local stray animals that heads towards agricultural farms in search of food and water. We’re ready to feed them with water and food but not at the cost of damaging our crops. We use to cultivate maize, which is our cash crop and in large volume. However for last 5 to 6 years it was hard time to protect it from the wild pigs that destroy the plant completely which is almost ready to harvest. We kept our farms empty for couple of year’s couldn’t save them from these stray animals bringing in total debacle.

The transition from these losses we moved towards market vegetables however drought and differed monsoon gets us off to farming. Murungai can as a handy crop and still had the issues from stray animals tried a lot of solution that we heard from known sources and from internet. Finally solar fencing helped us to keep these stray animals away. Murungai is now a big support for farmers in our locality and there are different varieties are cultivated. We do karumbu murungai which grows as a tree and last for 30 years if we manage them sensibly.
