Vermi composting is almost invariably associated with organic farmingOrganic farming is a system for systematic and synergistic harnessing of energies from cosmos, mother earth, plants and cow for quality production and proper maintenance of ecosystem. It integrates energies from cosmos, earth, plant and cow in a systematic way to meet out the following issues.

  • Yield potentials equal or better than those obtained after application of optimum doses of agro-chemicals

  • Continuous improvement in physico, chemical and biological soil properties

  • Par excellence produces quality with respect to nutrition, appearance and better shelf

  • The issues involved Eco friendly and cost effective technology

Four systems of organic farming are prevalent in India: Biodynamic Krishi, Rishi Krishi, Panchgavya Krishi and Agnihotra Krishi. Biodynamic Krishi has a strict sowing and planting calendar. Rishi Krishi involves boomi sanskar and application of amrit pani. Panchgavya consists of five products from cow; i.e. dung, urine, milk, curd and ghee. When suitably mixed along with sugar cane juice, tender coconut water, ripe banana and toddy and incubated for a week,  this mixture is a wonderful tonic to promote vegetative and reproductive growth of plants.
