As I have been very busy tying up loose ends at my place of work and the projects we are involved with I have not had the time to be more active at my farm - besides it being summer the focus has been mulching/ watering and keeping things alive. For mulch we have tried a combination of horse-gram and the dried leaves - generously provided by the honge and bamboo at the farm and the city home and street’s dried leaves. Thanks to you all for your suggestion.
We did try some vegetables and greens - grown successfully and shared with the elephants
Now I find that the Pomegranate - those saved from the peacocks - seem to have a borers - quite like the kind that affects brinjal. All the fruit saplings/ plants have had a spray of garlic-mustard in January followed by neem oil and shikakai spray 3 weeks later. Now they have been sprayed with 5% solution of panchagavya.
What do I need to spray for this problem with the Pomegranate? Will the Panchaaya spray - on both foliage and ground - take care of the problem?
Any ideas suggestions would be much appreciated.
