Leaf Compost

Every Metro City is filling up with dry leaves on roads. What are we doing? Just burning it. Instead of burning, pile them and add a bucket of water with 100ml of buttermilk every 10-15 days + Some Nitrogen-rich liquid like green leaves, grass clippings or kitchen waste. Compost will be ready for 60 days then use for plants.


The leaves of one expansive shade tree can be worth as much as money of plant nourishment and humus.The leaves of most trees contain twice the same number of minerals as manure.Since most trees are profound established, they ingest minerals from somewhere down in the dirt and a decent bit of these minerals go into the leaves.


Their humus-building qualities mean enhanced structure for all dirt sorts. They circulate air through overwhelming earth soils, keep sandy soils from drying out too quickly, douse up rain and check vaporization.


The advantages of leaf compost are various. The manure expands the porosity of the dirt, raises the soil strength, reduces the strain on landfills and makes a living "cover" over your plants. It adds supplements to plant soil and the bigger molecule estimate helps upgrade the tilth and release compacted earth. Manure holds dampness and repulses weeds when utilized as a best dressing or mulch.



Leaf mould is the delicate, cushiony later discovered normally in the backwoods or forest simply over the dirt. It deteriorates gradually and adds supplements bit by bit to sustain plants and enhance the dirt structure. Leaf mould isn't as rich in supplement an incentive as totally treated the soil leaves yet it is less demanding and faster to make.






Cautions :
  • Heat should be maintained in composting process. So, protect leaf compost from rains by arranging the setup under shade.
  • Diseased leaves may spread pathogens and spoils compost.
  • Shredding the leaves will essentially accelerate the composting process.

With the erratic rainfall every year the farmers are facing drought in the district. Even though in erratic rainfall also the dry land agriculture is sustained in the district during the past. With experiences in their life, the cropping system was evolved as NAVADHANYA a dryland agriculture system in the district. The NAVA DHANYA is an intercropping system in dryland agriculture. It has evolved to sustain crops in erratic rainfall by the farmer’s experiments. And also, it has evolved the system for trapping erratic rainfall and utilizing 100% to the crops. So, the farmers used the system as net of erratic rainfall in drought-prone areas for protecting at least 2/3 of the crops in their fields. The cropping system will keep the land greenery for 10 months in a year. So, the syste…

Dhabolkar method of green manuring

Mr.Dhabolkar, an organic farming expert in Maharashtra, has proved the efficacy of green manure method, which helps to return to the soil many times more nutrients than what we take from that same soil. The first step, therefore, to enrich the soil organically is to grow a variety of crops on the land and then plough the green matter back into the soil. Using this method it is possible to enrich the depleted soil in just two hundred days. Even land that has been depleted of all nutrients due to chemical farming can be resuscitated in this manner.By growing the following crops for 50-60 days and then ploughing them in-situ we add balanced nutrients and micro-nutrients to the land. The soil will become enriched in less than a year and micro-nutrient deficiency is eliminated.
