    When I was young between 1949 to 1969 most of the farmers in my district [Dakshina Kannada and Udupi were one district], were cultivating organic farming of Paddy [three crops per year]. Our family also used to do it. At present large agriculture land is not being cultivated due to high labor cost and children of farmers going out seeking jobs in IT and other sectors both within the country and outside the country. Agriculture is being abandoned and large number of paddy fields remain uncultivated. I am interested to take up a study of agriculture situation in our two districts between 1950 and till date and write a research article and suggest as to how the wastelands can now be used through a Farmers Producer Organisation [FPO] . I want to involve students in this project. Is there any way we collaborate and take up this project on scientific lines. Please
