Fresh vegetables will be available from the model of Nutrition Vatika and malnutrition will be removed


In today’s time, due to the Corona epidemic, awareness has increased among people about immunity power. The weakening of immunity reduces the body’s ability to fight many diseases including corona. At the same time, the problem of malnutrition is also seen due to lack of essential nutrients to the body. The concept of Nutrition Garden can prove to be effective in getting rid of both these problems. Vegetable scientist Dr. Abhishek Pratap Singh had a special conversation with Kisan Of India.

There is no magic formula to increase immunity power and nutrients. By regularly consuming fruits and vegetables full of healthy and medicinal properties in the diet, the body gets all the necessary nutrients. These nutrients are helpful in increasing the immunity power of the body.

200 to 250 square meters area required for the Nutrition Garden 

Dr. Abhishek Pratap Singh, head of Krishi Vigyan Kendra in East Champaran, Bihar and vegetable scientist, says that people have to first understand the importance of nutrition garden. He told that according to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), a person should consume 300 grams of vegetables per day. In this, the amount of green leafy vegetables should be 115 grams, tuber vegetable 115 grams and other vegetables should be 70 grams.

Dr. Abhishek Pratap Singh told that 200 to 250 square meters of land is enough for an average family of five members to meet the requirement of these vegetables throughout the year. Vegetables with nutrients can be grown in it by making small beds. For the cultivation of vegetables in the nutrition garden, crop rotation is adopted according to the season and climate.

Agricultural scientist Dr. Abhishek Pratap Singh further says that many people living in big cities often complain about how they can grow healthy fruits and vegetables themselves. If there is no land for cultivation, such people can easily prepare a nutrition garden on their roof too.

According to Dr. Abhishek, in addition to vegetables, fruit trees like papaya, lemon, pomegranate and guava etc., medicinal plants like basil, aloe vera, giloy can also be planted in the nutrition garden.

Grown for vegetable availability

Vegetables produced from Nutrition Vatika are tasty, fresh and free from pests and diseases. Early, mid and late maturing varieties should be grown for vegetable availability throughout the year. Fruit trees like lemon, guava, banana and pomegranate should be planted on one side, so that there is no problem in plowing the beds.

Vegetables requiring more water like spinach and amaranth should be planted near the drain. Always plant vegetables in different places so that along with more production, the incidence of pests and diseases can be reduced.

Location selection of nutrition garden

According to agricultural scientist Dr. Abhishek Pratap Singh, choose such a place for the nutrition garden where there is ample amount of sunlight. Take care that the shade of a large tree does not affect the yield of vegetables. For this, one or two compost pits should be made in shade or less important place. If there is enough space, then papaya, lemon, grapes, banana etc. can be planted in the north direction.

According to Dr.Abhishek, the crop circle of vegetables in the nutrition garden should be kept in the following ways :

  • In the first bed of the nutrition garden, during the months of November to March and from March to October, cabbage, lettuce, guar and frosbean should be planted in the form of co-cropped.
