Hello chandra,

You proved that this website is really a People’s website. Thankyou and sri2012.

sri2012 what is the meaning of poochimarandu.

Our farmers are wasting huge money in chemical fertilizers and posionous pesticides. It is our responsibility to drive them towards organic/natural/zbnf whatever we can call that but away from chemical farming.

As per my sources karnataka govt. got very good initiation towards natural/organic farming. I see many of our members came to know about palekar and fukoku. These people understood nature cause perfectly and believed that NATURE GOES ITS COURSE.

Chandra if you happen to see BHOOMIPUTRA son of soil program from MAA TV. Majority of the farmers who got success in farming adopted palekar/fukoku’s methods atleast at a minimum scale. Our ancient history provided the best knowledge resource about agriculture practices which our forefathers implemented and got succeeded. But now our farmers lost temper,  vigilance,modesty and patience, got hyped by the social changes(technology,entertainment, amusements etc) resulting our mother country INDIA supplicate its own riches(farmers and quality food).

Professionally I am computer systems administrator in central govt. worked at visakhapatnam RMS. I want my life to be meaningful,thus wanted to educate/drive/lead our farmers through our ancient and best in class agricultural practices. I did hurt their EGO by doing so. Hence, I decided to DO IT MYSELF and prove to our farmers. Before starting I want to get ready with all the asthras our Vrikshayurveda suggested.

So I stand before you all pleading for your guidance.           

Thank you one and all.

Poochimarandu is a Tamil word. I guessed it like this. Poochi=Worm/insect  marandu=Medicine.  Correct me TN members.

I think the key is demonstrating the efficacy of the natural methods for them to be adopted.
