Helping Farmers with Natural Farming
Even though the concept of Natural Farming first originated in Japan, But in India, it is being practiced from ancient days. Natural Farming is known as ‘Rishi Kheti’ in India & based on traditional Vedic farming practices such as the use of animal waste (such as Indian desi cow’s cow dung and cow urine) and herbal juices to combat pests and promote plant growth.
A farmer can cultivate farming on 30 acres of land from Indian desi cow dung and cow urine. Shabla Amrit, Shabla Ghan Amrit, and Shabla Bija Amrit are made from indigenous species cow dung and urine. By utilizing them in the field, the nutrients in the soil along with biological activity are expanded. Shabla Amrit can be sprayed once or twice a month in the field. However, Shabla bija Amrit is used to treat seeds. Farmers who cultivate this method do not have to buy any type of manure and pesticide chemicals from the market.
For irrigation of crops, water and electricity also cost only ten percent of the current farming. The resources that should be taken to grow crops in natural farming are present in adequate amounts in the environment near the leaves and near their roots in the land, no need to give anything more. Because our land is Annapurna. How many elements our crops take from the land? Only 1.5 to 2.0 percent they take. The remaining 98 to 98.5 %, they take from sunlight and water.
