Dear Sri Bapu4,
Certain sayings are in the usage. They may be correct or may not be correct. Facts can be proved/confirmed by the Research , if done by the Authorities , here in the subject matter , Agri/Horti universities/Institutions.
Here to state the facts, TNAU, Periyakulam, Tamilnadu state, doing experiments on Panchagavya , from several years. They found the following, if panchagavya is applying regularly.
- Working so nice on Mango crop, acid lime crop, Jasmine crop, Guava crop etc .
If panchagavya is regularly supplied to Mango plants , Results proving that Mango plants are giving good and regular yields, instead of alternate years. Great achievements with panchagavya feeding.
- Guava plants are giving 25% to 30% more yield, with regular panchagavya applying.
- Acid lime plants are producing flowers and fruits all the 12 months instead of 9 months, if panchagavya is applied.
- Jasmine plants are producing flowers through out the year, if panchagavya is applied.
It is a fact that Panchagavya is in our Vedas and followed by our farmers from centuries.The above facts came to us and we can trust, as research is done by TNAU, Peryakulam, govt of Tamilnadu, an authority in Agri/Horti university.
Like the same, jeevamrutha , recommended by Sri subhas palekar. He said to prepare it in 2 days process , and informed the farmers to use it on 3rd day.
For the above Jeevamrutha, another university, UAS/Gkvk, researchers did research on Jeevamrutha and their results showing that the Jeevamrutha is good and giving good results between 8 to 10 days after preparation, but up to 8 days no good results are proven. As farmers, we have to take a decision yo use Jeevamrutha at 3rd day, as advised by Sri subhas palekar or as per the said research recommendation or between 8 to 10 days, as recommended by Sri Subhas Palekar.
As regards to vermicompost, no authentically research is done, up to my knowledge on vermicompost , but all Agri/Horti universities/Institutes are advising to use Vermicompost for plantations. No research work information on , not to use vermicompost as it consists of poisonous metals are existing.
With best wishes, g.p.Rao, farmer
