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.

Navadhanya Cropping System

NAVADHANYA has not introduced by anybody from his/her own experiences and knowledge. It has evolved, by following the climatic conditions; district farmers were cultivated dryland agriculture in the district. 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.
