Abstract: Lotus (Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn.), a rooted hydrophyte has multiple uses in the valley of Manipur; it is edible apart from its religious and medicinal values. A sum of Rs 57,000 was generated during 2002 by selling various parts of lotus from the Sanapat Lake (55 hectares lotus growing area) of Manipur valley. The systematic cultivation of lotus is not only good to improve local economy of the people but also helps in conservation of various wetlands.
