What is Panchagavya, and how does it work?
Panchagavya is an organic product that has the ability to help plants thrive by stimulating growth and providing immunity. Cow dung, cow urine, milk, curd, jaggery, ghee, banana, tender coconut, and water are among the nine products that make up Panchagavya. These have remarkable powers when properly blended and applied.
How to prepare Panchagavya?
7 kilogramme of cow dung
1 kilogramme of cow ghee
Mix the above two ingredients thoroughly in the morning and evening and set aside for three days.
10 litres of cow urine
10 litres of water
After 3 days, combine cow urine and water and store for 15 days, mixing daily in the morning and evening. After 15 days, combine the ingredients below, and panchagavya will be ready in 30 days.
3 litres of cow milk
2 litres cow curd
3 litres tender coconut water
3 kilogrammes jaggery 12 nos. well-ripened poovan bananas
In comparison to the greater and lower concentrations studied, the spray system with a 3 percent solution proved to be the most effective. All crops benefit from three litres of Panchagavya per 100 litres of water. Power sprayers with a 10 litre capacity may require 300 ml per tank. Sediments must be filtered when using a power sprayer, and when using hand driven sprayers, a nozzle with a larger pore size must be utilised.
Flow system: The Panchagavya solution can be blended with irrigation water at a rate of 50 litres per acre and applied either drip irrigation or flow irrigation.
Seed/seedling treatment: Soak seeds or dip seedlings in a 3 percent solution of Panchagavya before planting. It is sufficient to soak for 20 minutes. Turmeric, ginger, and sugarcane sets should be soaked for 30 minutes before planting.
Seed storage: Dip the seeds in 3 percent Panchagavya solution before drying and storing them.
