The dedication of an Agricultural Extension Officer (AEO) G Santosh towards his hard work and innovative spirit brought smiles to many farmers from Tadkal to Kangti Mandal, Telangana.
He made some suggestions and sensitized the farmers on how to prepare, use and get the benefits derived from this waste decomposer, during the 2021 Kharif season. Following the advice of AEO Santosh, the farmers in the village from Babulgaon to Kangti Mandal, Sangareddy District, Telangana are getting good results and said we will use it again next season…villagers are also impressed with the results of the waste decomposer.
By breaking down plant/crop residues in the field and releasing enzymes, the waste decomposer promotes the growth of soil microorganisms and creates a favorable environment for the release of nutrients. The waste decomposer acts as a biofertilizer, biological control agent and soil health restorer.
How to prepare the waste decomposer?
Take 2 kg of jaggery and mix it with 200 liters of water in a plastic container.
Now take 1 bottle of waste decomposer and pour its entire contents into a plastic canister containing jaggery drum.
For even distribution of waste decomposer in a drum, stir it well with a wooden stick.
Cover the drum with paper or cardboard and stir it once or twice a day.
After 5 days, the drum solution becomes creamy.
Footnote 1: Farmers could prepare waste decomposer solution from above mentioned solution repeatedly. For this, 20 liters of waste decomposer solution are mixed with 2 kg of jaggery and 20 liters of water in a drum.
Footnote 2: Farmers can continuously prepare this solution from this waste decomposer for the rest of their life.
Application of Waste Decomposer within 21 days of application, 1000 liters per acre changes the biological and physical properties of all soil types (acidic and alkaline), and it helps generate up to 4 earthworm populations Lakh in 1 acre of land in just six months.
Nowadays, we aspire to sustainable agriculture and the government also promotes zero budget natural agriculture because chemical agriculture is extremely dangerous for our health as well as that of the soil… So now is the time to gradually move to biological agriculture.
