The name of the Organic manure is Ganajeevamrutha:. This is produced from Cow Dung, Cow Urine, Jagerry and pulses. The number of days for preparing the same is seven days. This is organic manure which enriches the soil and plant and provides all the nutrients required for the growth of the plant. This has to be applied in wet soil. It comes in powder form and it has to be scatted on the soil and approximately 20 to 25 kgs is required for one acre of land.
Gana Jeevamrutham is an organic input for the agriculture. This is used instead of DAP and Urea which are chemical input.
This can be applied for any crop to enrich the soil and also increase the greenery in the plants and crops. First application within one week from the date of harvest: or within one week from sowing the crop. This application has to be applied in wet soil.
The next application is required by watching the crop towards the greenery and it can be applied whenever the greenery is less in the plants/crops.
The nitrogen requirement of the soil will be enriched. Gana Jeevamrutham mixed with micro organisms, when it is applied in soil, it slowly dissolves in soil and releases micro organisms. There are few elements contained in the soil which are not in the form the roots can directly absorb, these organisms convert the elements in the form which roots can directly absorb.
K.C. Kalappa, member of South Indian unit of Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC), advised the farmers to go for natural and organic manure to retain the fertility of the soil and also to reduce input costs.
During his visit to the model farm of a progressive farmer Rammohan Naidu at Brahmanakalva village in Ramachandrapuram mandal recently, he saw the organic manure making unit run by Welfare Organisation for Rural Development (WORD) at the site. He explained to the farmers that KVIC was providing 25-35 p.c. subsidy on natural manure and allied products. With just cow dung and garden waste as the input material, farmers can turn the world a green place, he explained.
