On 4 July 2018 The Washington Post reported: For the past week, farmers in the tourist haven of Goa have been getting WhatsApp videos promoting a new technique to improve crop yields -- by chanting ancient Hindu mantras. Goa's crop mantras are part of a nationwide effort to find alternatives to chemical fertilizers and return to traditional farming amid rising alarm in India about the effect of fertilizer on human health.
