Use of Jeevatu

Jeevatu is used in Agriculture sector and waste management sector

In agriculture sector

1) Direct Use of 5%  Jeevatu Solution as prophylactic (before the occurrence of insect pest & diseases) and 10% as curative spray (after the occurrence of insect pest & diseases).

2) By making Jeevatu Based Organic Liquid Manure-1 & Jeevatu Based Organic Liquid Manure-2.

3) Preparation of high quality compost: By application of 5% Jeevatu Solution during the compost preparation we can increase plant nutrient (nitrogen, phosphorous and potash) of compost, add microbes to solubilize the micro-nutrients and control of soil inhabited insect pest and disease problems.

Waste management sector

i) Controls the foul odor of city waste.

ii) Enhances fast decomposition process.

iii) Convert city organic waste into high quality manure.

 

  1. 1.      Use of Jeevatu in Agriculture Sector For Plant Protection and Plant Nutrition

Jeevatu is able to manage all disease, insect pest and plant nutrient deficiencies of crops, herbs and medicinal plants in different agro-ecological regions ranging from 150 meter above sea level (masl) to 3200 masl.

  1. 2.      Use of Jeevatu to enhance the quality of compost and manage soil pest problems

Several stakeholders including Lalitpur Metropolitan city have adopted Jeevatu based technology for city waste management.

1) Jeevatu solution 5% is used for composting and controlling the off smell (of any place toilet, poultry farm or rotten materials like city waste, bone meal factory, land filling sites, polluted rivers etc.) city waste. The decomposition process of organic city waste is enhanced by the treatment of Jeevatu. Compost prepared by the use of Jeevatu contains more plant nutrient and microbes to solubilize micro-nutrient and control soil inhabited insect pest and diseases.

2) The compost prepared by the use of Jeevatu has increased in nutrient content of compost viz. nitrogen- 4.03%, phosphorous-1.13% and potash- 2.25%.

3) Therefore eco-friendly, sustainable soil/land management can be done by controlling the various soil inhabited insect pest, diseases and increasing soil fertility.

Annual Report of Soil Science Division, NARC and Horticulture , 2008/09 and 2009/10  “Abstract of Disseminating Pesticide Residue Free Tomato Production during Rainy/Autumn season  in the Mid Hills of Nepal”.

Studies done by Soil Science Division and Horticulture Research Division, Nepal Agricultural Research Council, Kathmandu on tomato crop at Sharda Batase-1 of Kavre (hill) district suggest average increased soil fertility in terms of organic matter percentage, nitrogen percentage, available phosphorous Kg/ha and available potash Kg/ha were 1.25, .062, 150.83 and 602.5 respectively after the harvest of tomato 143 metric tons/ha (Annual Report of Soil Science Division, 2008/2009). During the growth of the fruit of tomato, the calcium deficiency was observed in all experimental plots which were successfully managed by the drenching of Jeevatu based organic liquid manure, two times in a week, in 1:4 ratios (one part Jeevatu based organic liquid manure and four parts of water). The result reveals that organic liquid manure can also supply micronutrients needed by the crops.  Further, it has been noted that the tomato produced by the use of such eco-friendly technologies, can be kept at room temperature for 3-4 weeks in Kathmandu. The tomato crop was infested by insect pests (aphid, tomato boll worm, caterpillars, white fly, white grub and red ant) and infected by diseases (damping off of seedling, late blight, early blight, collar rot, Septoria leaf spot and powdery mildew).

What is Jeevatu?

Jeevatu is a package of beneficial microbes found in natural conditions. This package of beneficial microbes is eco-friendly, sustainable and capable to manage plant nutrition and plant protection problems. Jeevatu is non-poisonous and harmless to eco-system. The key ingredients of Jeevatu are Lactic acid bacteria, Azotobacter,…

Why Jeevatu?

Global top concerns are Climate Change, permanent food/ nutrition security and city waste management. These issues are more relevant to the developing world. The capitals of developing countries are rapidly urbanized and experiencing the population explosion and facing extremes of environmental degradation in…
