Worms: On average, earthworms have a 10-30 day life span. Can you believe that during this short span, these inconspicuous creatures can convert three tons of earth into natural fertilizer? Large production machinery that ploughs the soil annihilate these plain, plodding and useful
Trees: A large farm without trees is a foolhardy act. Apart from shade and oxygen, they give shelter to birds, increase the fertility of soil, prevent soil erosion, bestow long-term rewards in form of fruits, bark, flowers etc. Their leaves serve as excellent ingredients for natural fertilizer. Trees such as Sheesham, Mango, Kathala, Cheeku, Papaya, Banana, Sagaum and Khejari increase the fertility of soil. Trees such as Ghritakumari, Gooseberry, Neem, Ashwagandha, Patharchatta, Giloya grow easily and rapidly on wide variety of terrains.
Fertilizers: Cow’s urine and cow’s dung have unique chemical properties that turn them into excellent inputs for natural, organic fertilizer. It is believed that soil’s nitrogen, phosphorus, magnesium, potash quantities increase with usage of cow’s urine and cow’s dung. Even man’s urine and excreta is helpful towards soil fertility.
Birds: Birds have a voracious appetite for crop-damaging worms. Birds don’t like to nibble on crops; they prefer worms instead.
