A farmer plucks Betel leaf during cultivation on the outskirts of Agartala on Tuesday, March 6, 2012. A report on March 2011 claims that betel farming is on a decline in India. Betel cultivation is labour-intensive. A betel leaf garden requires frequent watering, plucking of leaves, applying fertilisers and pesticides and maintenance of the enclosure. Low demand and high-input costs are already driving betel farmers to switch from organic manure to chemical fertilisers and growth hormones. Picture by Arindam Dey/Indian Photo Agency (InPA)
