Bijamrita (Seed Treatment)
Since thousands of years, our farmers were treating their seeds by Deshi cow urine, cow dung and little soil from the bund of the farm or land of the farm. In Maharashtra before 50-60 years (before Green Revolution) for seed treatment of cotton, our ancient cotton growers were utilizing the little cow dung, cow urine and top soil of that field in which previous crop was cotton. For Juar seed treatment with the cow dung and urine, they were utilizing the soil in which the previous crop was Juar. This was the traditional method and also a totally scientific method. But after Agriculture Universities arrival, all good things in Agricultural sector were destroyed and all unnatural and so unscientific techniques were imposed on the farmers and indirectly on the urban consumers by unscientific Agricultural Universities. Agricultural Universities propose you now all dangerous poisons in the form of fungicides and antibiotics for seed treatment. When you apply any poisonous fungicides or medicine to the seed, all useful effective (our friends) micro-organisms like Trychoderma are destroyed in the soil. When these poisonous chemicals treated seeds germinate and grow, these poisons are also sucked by the roots with the soil water solution and are deposited in the body organs of the plant i.e. vegetables, grains, fruits, tubers etc. When we eat these food materials, these poisons are transmitted to our body and causes T. B., Diabetes, Cancer, Heart problems to the eater consumers. As well as, when farmers purchase these fungicides & medicines for seed treatment, a big exploitation of the farmers occurs. Because, they purchase these costly fungicides. Then money from villages goes outside our country. Now we are going to stop this nonsense. We are going to start our ancient techniques. On that ancient technique, I have done some additional experiments. Because of highly poisonous soil, it was needed. After my research experiments, final seed treatment formula was ready to hand over for farmers. That is ‘Bijamrita’.
When there is cloudy weather and excessive humidity of the air is increased, the cells of harmful bacteria’s and harmful funguses are coming with blowing moist air and stay on the surface of the every seed. In favorable condition, they multiply speedily. If these affected seeds will be sown without treatment in the soil, all these harmful bacteria and funguses enter in the soil with the seeds, multiply themselves. After germination of the seeds, they start to enter in the roots, multiply inside and spread in entire body of the plant and plants are affected by the dangerous diseases, which are called seed born diseases. So, it is very essential to treat the seeds by fungicides and anti bacterial devices.
How to prepare Bijamrita?
Ingredients of Bijamrita (For 100 Kg seed treatment) –
|Deshi Cow Dung||5 Kg|
|Deshi Cow Urine||5 Litre|
|Soil from Bund of farm or forest||One Handful|
Take 20 litres water.
Then take 5 Kg Deshi cow dung.
Mix it by the fingers.
Take it in a cloth and bound it by small rope as a small bundle.
Hang this bundle of cow dung in the taken 20-litre water for a night (12 hours).
Take one litre water and add 50 gm lime in it, let it stable for a night.
Then next morning, squeeze this bundle of the cow dung in that water thrice continuously, so that all essence of cow dung will accumulate in that water.
Then add a handful of soil in that water solution and stir it well.
Then add 5 litre Deshi cow urine or human urine in that solution
Then add the lime water and stir it well.
Keep it overnight for proper fermentation.
Now Bijamrita is ready to treat the seeds.
Application of Bijamrita
- The Bijamrita should be treated within 48 hours after preparation of Bijamrita.
- Spread the seeds to be treated on the surface and sprinkle the Bijamrita on it and apply it on the seeds gently with hands.
- When you purchase the seed bag from the market, first remove seeds from the bag, clean the seed by fresh water and then treat the seeds by Bijamrita.
Advantages of Bijamrita
- Bijamrita increases the germination percentage of the seeds up to 90%.
- When you utilize Bijamrita for seed treatment and sow the seed in the soil, the beneficial effective funguses and bacteria are gathered near the roots and protect the roots from harmful funguses and harmful pathogenic bacteria attack. The harmful dangerous fungus phytophthora is controlled by beneficial fungus Trichoderma or harmful pathogens like fusarium also are controlled by beneficial bacteria’s, which are developed by Bijamrita.
- The Bijamrita purify the soil very well.
