Recognising his extensive work in the field of agriculture, the Gandhi Gram Rural University, Dindugal, honoured Nammalvar with a Doctorate of Science degree in 2007.
Dr. Nammalvar died on 30 December 2013, near Pattukottai, while on a trip to protest against methane program by ONGC that he had been opposing for a long time.
He is not among us but the legacy he left behind is priceless, only if we keep on passing his wisdom & farming techniques to our future generations to protect our soil from men made poisons.
The Logical Indian hopes that more and more farmers move towards organic farming and save our land, water, soil & souls from contamination. The government seriously takes some measures to encourage farmers to go with organic farming.
