Lucerne -A multipurpose crop in Farming

FarmNest.com Forum Topics - Sun, 05/24/2020 - 18:11

Lucerne is the queen of forage crops .Is it just that ? No , it is a multipurpose crop . In the past one or two decades ,new concepts in farming or traditional farming practices in disguise of sustainable farming , integrated farming , organic farming , natural farming or whatever the name it has been called have been evolved and put in practices by many enthusiasts ,let alone be the outcome of so called different farming methods .
Coming straight to the point , this Lucerne brings immense benefit to the farmers as forage ( green fodder ) hay ( dry fodder ) silage (Cattle pickle )
It contains 18-24 % protein with nearly 75-80 % digestibility .
It can fix atmospheric nitrogen in its root nodules and increase soil fertility . For every MT of dry matter it generate 10-20 kgs of nitrogen in soil .So the subsequent crop raised on the same field after the harvest of Lucerne grows well and produce more and quality yield of produce .

Again the roots grow deep in the soil that in turn allows more infiltration of rain water .In rainfed area ,this is one of the advantages for the farmers to effectively conserve rain water .

Also it is used as green manure to enhance soil fertility level as Lucerne is a rich source of mineral nutrients called Calcium , Magnesium , phosphorus etc.

It is also grown as cover crop that manage to check the weeds and condition the soil for subsequent cultivation of commercial crops

It is a natural bio soil ameliorant as it lessen the impact of soil salinity that adversely affect crop growth , root development and ultimately the yield of produce …

It can also be raised as intercrop in coconut for fodder , enhancing soil fertility and checking weeds …
Lucerne can be sown in interrow spaces of orchard .so it prevent soil erosion and run off and conserve soil moisture and add plant nutrients to main crop . The harvested fruits are of premium quality .
In integrated farming system ,Lucerne plays a vital role .
Cultivation of Lucerne
20 kgs of seeds are sown in one hectare .
First harvest comes in about 75-80 days after sowing .
Subsequent harvest is made in every 25-30 days
Totally 80-90 MT of green fodder is harvested in one hectare in 9-10 harvest
Plant grows to the height of 60-70 CMS
Seeds produced in one hectare field is 200-250 kgs
The farmers practicing organic farming / sustainable farming / integrated farming / natural farming can consider this option of growing Lucerne .

Natural organic weedicide

FarmNest.com Forum Topics - Sat, 05/23/2020 - 15:16

In farming ,weeds are the main deterrent causing great yield loss upto 45 % besides reduction in quality and taste of the produce .
Controlling weeds during early stage of crop growth is a real challenge for most of the farmers and under the circumstances when rain continues the weeds grow very fast ,most of time overtaking and surpassing growth the of main crops cultivated .
More specifically the organic farmers / natural farming practicioner face the challenges of checking weeds as they are not allowed to use synthetic weedicides …
Let us see how does weed affect crops …
The weeds grow simultaneously when irrigation is given to main crops sown in the field .
It competes and shares the soil moisture/ water available for crops
The weeds always grow faster and in more numbers and remove the nutrients meant for main crop that is left deprived of enough nutrients …
Likewise it shares and competes for sunlight …
It also acts as host for many insect pest and diseases that may infect and damage crops ,causing loss in yield and quality of the produce …
Weeds secretes some photochemical that causes allelopathic effect on main crop ,thus stunting and sickening the main crops cultivated…
So the weeds are serious menace and farmers need to bestow their best attention if at all they want to harvest quality crops for consumer markets …
How to prepare natural organic WEEDICIDE
materisl required

  1. 10 lit cow urine ( rich in nitrogen )
    2.2 kgs of calotropis leaves ( rich in boron - essential plant micro nutrients )
    3.2 Kgs of sodium salt ( abounds in chlorine ,a plant micro nutrient )
    5.1/2 kg of limestone ( calcium oxide stone piece , certainly not powder )
  2. 1 or 2 pieces of lemon fruits

Grind calotropis leaves well and mix it in cow urine , then add calcium oxide , sodium salt and leave it for a week .Get one or two lemon fruits squeezed into the main preparation .
Now your natural organic WEEDICIDE is ready .You can add one lit of this to 9 lit water and spray well over the weeds

Pretreated MORINGA SEEDS germinates quick

FarmNest.com Forum Topics - Tue, 05/19/2020 - 07:04

Usually moringa seeds take certain time period to germinate that varies between 14 to 30 days depending on the prevailing temperature , vigour and vitality and quality of seeds. In the temperature around 30 degree Celsius it sprouts quickly and emerges out of soil in about 14 days and it is quite longer say about 30 days when temperature is around 10 degree Celsius . Also when the quality of seeds are poor the germination of seeds are irregular as some seeds germinate early and others take so longer a time to spout and come out of soil . Apart these internal and external influences , soil physio chemical properties also affect germination varyingly in different types of soil .I hear majority of farmers along the eastern coast of India complain about germination failure while those along the western coast say Karnataka ,Maharastra ,Gujarat witness good and quick germination of seeds . Irrespective of the causes , the moringa seeds are treated in 3 % panchagavya solution before sowing . The growth promoters like Auxin ,cytokinen , !Gibberellin , vitamins and amino acids along with loads of microbes prepare the seeds ready for quick sprouting and strengthen it to push out of soil early& evenly. 4 days old sprout of treated moringa seeds below .
