Context: Recently, Rahibai Popere, popularly known as Seed mother, from Maharashtra won this year’s Padma awards. It was in recognition of her work that has helped save hundreds of landraces (wild varieties of commonly grown crops at the village level)

Boosting farmers income: With proper agricultural practices, landraces can give better yield with lower input costs.
What are the threats being faced by landraces?
