The most important part in our organization is to educate the farmer and induct him into the world of organic.
We follow natural farming techniques by award winning organic farmer SR Sundararaman, who practiced conventional farming for over three decades before taking the organic path.
Hailed as the pioneer of organic farming in South India, the 78-year-old has received several awards and honors ` -from the government and agricultural institutions for his contribution. Sundararaman has also trained hundreds of cultivators and established a well-knit network of organic farmers.
His methods aim at saving both farmers’ livelihood and the health of the soil. Organic farming methods help farmers save money and turn their farmyard waste into value-added products for increasing crop production.
Sundararaman has also formulated a low-cost, easy alternative to drip irrigation, which reduces irrigation water consumption by 60 percent and increases soil carbon content to produce a robust yield.
His guide on managing plant health begins with an application of the MEM or Microorganism Enriched Mixture on the fields for essential nutrients, seedling treatment, and spraying of Jeevamrutha and Panchgavya.
Panchgavya is a growth-enhancing mixture prepared using cow dung, cow urine, milk, curd, jaggery, ghee, banana, tender coconut, and water. It promotes growth and boosts immunity for the prevention of diseases. It also induces dense flowering and ensures regular fruiting.
Jeevamrutha is a mixture of cow dung, cow urine, jaggery, pulse flour, soil, and water. The use of Jeevamrit, the microbial culture, helps meet the nutritional requirement of crops.
Foliar spraying and drenching with Jeevamrutha accelerate the production of growth regulators in the cell system and the action of growth regulators in the plant system stimulated the necessary growth and development, leading to better yield.
