Types of Seeds

Seeds are extremely imperative since plants replicate. Be that as it may, a few plants as opposed to creating seeds discharge spores for reproduction.There are around a million unique sorts of seeds, so the division of a particular kind of seed is somewhat troublesome.

1)Open-Pollinated seeds - Open-pollination is when pollination happens by insects, birds, wind, humans, or other normal procedures. Since there are no confinements on the stream of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are all the more hereditarily differing. This can cause a more prominent measure of variety inside plant populaces, which enables plants to gradually adjust to nearby developing conditions and atmosphere year-to-year. at that point the seed delivered will stay consistent with type a seemingly endless amount of time. Indigenous seeds or Native seeds are alluded to as desi seeds or naati seeds as well.

2)Heirloom Seeds - A heirloom variety is a plant assortment that has a background marked by being passed down inside a family or group, like the generational sharing of treasure adornments or furniture. 

An heirloom variety must be open-pollinated, yet not all open-pollinated plants are heirlooms. While a few organizations make legacy marks in view of dates, (for example, an heirloom that is over 50 years of age) 

3)Hybrid Seeds - Hybridization is a controlled technique for pollination in which the pollen of two unique species or assortments is crossed by human intercession. Hybridization can happen normally through arbitrary crosses, however, economically accessible hybridized seed, regularly named as F1, is purposely made to breed a coveted quality. The original of a hybridized plant cross likewise has a tendency to develop preferred and deliver higher yields over the parent varieties because of a marvel called 'half-breed force'. In any case, any seed created by F1 plants is hereditarily insecure and can't be put something aside for use in following years. Not exclusively will the plants not be consistent with type, but rather they will be extensively less energetic. Agriculturists who utilize cross breed plant varieties must buy new seed each year. 

4)GMO - A GMO (hereditarily changed creature) is the aftereffect of a research centre process where qualities from the DNA of one animal varieties are separated and misleadingly constrained into the qualities of an inconsequential plant.The strategies used to exchange the qualities of altered DNA of a hereditarily adjusted plant are uncertain and eccentric. These unintended changes are conceivable contrasts in the sustenance's wholesome esteems, dangerous and unfavourably susceptible impacts, bring down product yields and unexpected mischief to the condition that can't be reviewed. 

That is the reason we have to preserve open pollinated, heirloom variety seeds of all vegetables, cereals, millets, pulses for sake of our future generations. Spare desi/local seeds(open pollinated/heirloom), Save your youngsters future. 

What is the timeframe of realistic usability of a seed? Does it fluctuate from plant to plant? How a seed is secured for quite a long while? 
The timespan of usability of seeds goes down when time runs. Max 3-6months. Some protect seeds in ash for longer periods. Germination rate diminishes.  

What is extraordinary about indigenous seeds or local seeds? 
They grow even in unfavourable conditions. 

They have high protection from maladies and pests...is it genuine? 
The essence of vegetables and grains from indigenous seeds is better, with more noteworthy supplement an incentive also. These seeds don't require any chemicals or manures or pesticides for their development. They grow great even in the typical prolific soil and change in accordance with the atmosphere. They can withstand pests to their max potential.

Five Layer Shri Palekar Ji Model - 36*36 model for full 1 acre

Huge trees, for example, Mango, Jack-fruit, Jamun, and Amla ought to be planted 36 feet separated.
Guava, Chikku, Lemon and Pomegranate saplings can be planted in the middle of the mango plants at a separation of 18 feet.
Papaya, Drum-stick, Banana that involve lesser space ought to be planted in a space of 9 feet between the second arrangement of trees recorded previously. The above plants ought to be planted along a similar column over the plot of land leaving space to develop a single assortment of vegetables, millets and so forth on each bed.
separate 1 section of land into a break even with squares of 36ft X 36ft. In each piece of 36 ft x 36 ft ( which is additionally separated into four 9ft X 9ft sub-squares) We can grow around 170 trees, in that 9ft x 9 ft part of the land (one sub-square). Plant 1 Banana Tree, 4 Arecanut Trees, 4 Black pepper Creepers getting on Arecanut trees, 2 Coffee Plants, 2 Glirsedia Trees, 2 Venella Creepers hopping on Glirsedia trees and 32 Ginger Plants …

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.

The following quantities will suffice for one acre.
Choose four of each of the following types:(One from category total five)

1. Grains: 5Kg (Example: 1 kg Sorghum, 500 gms Pearl millet, 250 gms Foxtail millet, 250 gms …

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. 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…
