Farmer Plant Breeding, India
Sebastian Joseph, a small-scale farmer from Southern India and his son, Regimon, developed a method for crossbreeding cardamom through cross pollination to increase seedpod production, from around 30 pods per bush to 120-160 pods per bush. The new variety, Njallani, revolutionised cardamom production in the Cardamon Hills Reserve in Kerala, and most of the cardamon grown now is the Njallani variety. Clonal propagation developed by Joseph also reduces the time taken for the crop to reach maturity. In spite of developing a wonder variety that transformed the cardamom industry, Joseph did not make a lot of money from his innovation. His innovation was recognised by India’s National Innovation Foundation and he was awarded Rs (US) in 2001 and in 2011 he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Indian Spices Board of Rs lakh (US.
