THRISSUR: Albeit in the farming business from the ripe age of 16, Raghu, a native of Mathur Palakkad hitherto had to experience a long dismal run that yielded no good results. However, late into his stint with agriculture, success came knocking on his doors through Rakthashali rice.

It was just ten years before that Raghu now aged 55, started farming Rakthashali rice on five acres of land. Now, the business has gone in such a way that Raghu manages to sell 10 kg of rice online daily for Rs 300 per kg. By this means, he is earning Rs 1 lakh a month. Thanks to Rakthashali rice.

Raghu bought the seeds from Cheruvayal Raman, a tribal farmer of Wayanad. Small and slender-grained rice known for its nutritive and medicinal properties, Rakthashali rice is a rare and precious variety of rice form existing in Kerala.

Raghu is strongly supported by his wife Sheeja who is also keen on business related to agriculture. Their son Srihari is a computer designer in Dubai.

Perks of eating Rakthashali rice.

  • Fights cancer cells

  • Improves blood circulation

  • Salvation for the heart too

  • Good for diabetes, cholesterol and knee pain.
