The Story

Bio Basics sources its Organic Bansi Wheat from a cooperative of tribal farmers in Jhabua, Madhya Pradesh. These Bhil tribal farmers are dedicated to organic farming and have become the custodians of heritage wheat varieties. Bansi wheat, characterised by its tall stalks, is now grown by only a few farmers. Modern short durum wheat, such as Tejas, has largely replaced Bansi wheat. Most Bansi Dalia available in the market is made from improved Tejas wheat.
