Important contribution of indigenous cow in making natural fertilizers


Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government are giving a lot of emphasis on zero budget natural farming to increase the fertilizer efficiency of the soil, crop production and farmers’ income. Keeping in mind the increasing mood of pure food, the demand for products made from natural farming is also increasing. According to Subhash Palekar, in Zero Budget Natural Farming, farmers do not need to spend on fertilizers and pesticides for crop production. Let us know about the fertilizers and pesticides used in natural farming.


Jeevamrut is a natural liquid fertilizer. It can be made with locally available ingredients at almost zero cost. It is made by mixing cow dung (as manure), cow urine and some other ingredients with some soils of the same area. It does not have any effect on soil and yield.

Micro-organisms multiply hundreds of times by using Jeevamrut. It works to increase the immunity of plants. This keeps the plants healthy and gives good crop yields. By producing more of Jeevamrut, farmers can make small units and earn extra income.

Ghanjeevamrut is an effective dry natural fertilizer. It is made by mixing cow dung and cow urine. It does not contain any element that harms the crop. For its use, 100 kg of vermicompost per acre along with 20 kg of Ghanjeevamrut should be put in the field at the time of sowing. It can be used even after 3 days of watering the field.

Seed germination occurs in more quantity with Ghanjeevamrut. Its use increases both the brightness and taste of the crops. With its use, as soon as the moisture comes in the soil, the bacteria present are activated and the fertility of the soil increases manifold.
