Noted agriculture scientist M S Swaminathan has been selected for the 'Basava Krishi' award given away by the Panchamasali Peetha of Kudalasangama.The award comprises a cash prize of Rs 1 lakh and a brass citation. The award will be presented to the scientist at a function at the Swaminathan Agriculture Centre in Chennai.

Usually, the annual award is presented in Kudalasangama on Sankranti day (January 15). But the award function will be shifted to Chennai this year, so that Basavanna's 'work is worship' message is disseminated to the farmers in Tamil Nadu.
