There will be special focus on plant care and plant protection relating to vanilla as well as tips on processing and marketing of vanilla.

The series will deal with medicinal properties of spices like sweet flag, greater galanga and pepper long. Some capsules will be on spices with commercial potential, as well as cultivation of cambodge.

The research activities of Spices Board and its publicity and promotion related activities for spices as well as farmer welfare programmes will be broadcast.

The series will be on the waves from the AIR station of Kozhikode and will be relayed by all stations in Kerala viz Thiruvanathapuram, Thrissur, Kannur, Kochi and Devikulam.

The programme is slotted for broadcast on every Tuesday at 6.50 pm. Question-answers will be dealt with on every Friday at 6.50 pm.
