Jeevamrutha is Devamrutha

Published by: WeGopals Team

Many of you might be wondering, how does an organic farmer grow his plants without any fertilizers? Where is the plant getting the required nutrients? How can the plant grow well?

Organic Farming uses a traditional organic fertilizer called Jeevamrutham.

Jeevamrutham can be used as a fertilizer for each plant for every week, which boosts the plant growth and gives a good yield. We need to use the prepared one within one week of preparation. Please note that once Jeevamrutham is used, one shouldn’t water the plants for 12 hrs.

Jeevamrutha Preparation

Ingredients required (For 200 litres, which is sufficient for 1 acre)

  1. Fresh Desi Cow dung – 10 to 15 kgs
  2. Goumutra – 5 lts
  3. Any pulse flour – 2 kgs
  4. Jaggery (black preferred) or any fruit pulp – 2 kgs
  5. Handful of soil (the soil should be taken from the land where we will apply Jeevamrutha later, preferably collect it from bund)

Method of preparation

  • Mix Cow dung in a separate bucket with ample water. No clods should be there.
  • Similarly, mix Jaggery and pulse flour each in separate buckets.
  • Pour Cow dung, Jaggery solution, pulse flour liquid, and Goumutra to the drum.
  • Add a handful of soil and fill the drum completely with water.
  • Stir it thoroughly.
  • Keep this solution for 3-6 days depending on temperature.
  • To be prepared in shade.

Benefits of Jeevamrutha

For preparing Jeevamrutha the best Cow dung and urine is from the cow which has stopped giving milk. As all the energy will be utilized to produce Goumutra and Goumaya.

Desi Cow in its intestine has millions of beneficial microbes, which will come out in form of Cow dung. Goumutra, as u are aware, has got a lot of plant growth promoting agents.

Jaggery is added to provide Carbohydrates and pulse flour provides the required proteins. Bacteria will grow in exponential form. For every 20 min, bacterium multiplies into two.

After 3-7 days there will be billions of beneficial microbes which can break bonds between compounds of elements in soil and this allows the plants to easily observe all these nutrients. Also, it has got many microbes which can fight against pathogens.

Jeevamrutha can be directly applied. It can be sprayed after filtering by diluting a 1 litre Jeevamrutha in 10 lts of water.

Best time to apply Jeevamrutha is after irrigation or rain. Soil should have sufficient moisture. Or evening time is also ok.

After applying we need to do mulching with leaves or live mulching with Horse gram

For Practical Demonstration, watch our team preparing jeevamrutha at Malur Gou Ashram
