Preparation of Jiwamrita and Ghan- Jivamrita for soil fertility management

Hi friends, I am really surprised for the ancient days farming where no chemicals but the plants were growing very well without using any chemical fertilizers and pesticides. I enquired with some old aged people, they said about the importance cow dung, cows urine, compost, lime, pulses, and so many.  By keeping the reference of those ideas I started surfing in the internet about the natural farming. Surfing through the internet i found the website of subash palekar which made be interested and like to share his ideas in my blog.  Here is the explanation of the Jivamrita and its preparation and all the credits goes to subash palekar.

How to Prepare Jiwamrita

When we apply Jiwamrita to the soil, we add 500 crore micro-organisms to the soil. All these are beneficial effective microbes. Our soil is saturated with all the nutrients. But these are in the non-available form to the roots of the plants. These micro-organisms convert these non-available form nutrients into available form, when we add Jiwamrita to the soil. These micro-organisms available all the nutrients (Nitrogen, Phosphate, Potash, Iron, Sulphur, Calcium etc) to the roots of the plant. After applying Jiwamrita to the soil, the local earthworms start their work. These earthworms bring the nutrients from 15 feet deeper soil to the upper surface and get available to the roots. How the trees from the forest get all these nutrients? These local earthworms and other insects do this work. These uncountable micro-organisms, insects and earthworms work only when they have a favorable definite microclimate i.e. 25 to 32 °C temperature, 65 to 72 % moisture and darkness, warmth and deception in the soil

Take 200 liter Water in barrel.

Take 10 Kg Local Cow Dung and 5 to 10 liter cow urine and add it in the water.

Then add 2 Kg Jaggery, 2 Kg Pulses flour & handful soil from the bund of the farm in it.

Then stir the solution well & keep it to ferment for 48 hours in the shadow.Now Jiwamrita is ready for application.

Jiwamrita Application

Apply the Jiwamrita to the crops with each Irrigation water OR directly to the crops.

Jiwamrita Spray

Spray 10% filtered Jiwamrita on the crops.


Take 100 Kg Local Cow Dung, 2 Kg Jaggery, 2 Kg Pulses flour, Handful soil from the bund. Then mix it well by adding small amount of Cow Urine. Then spread it & keep it in the shadow for drying. Afterwards make its powder by hand & apply to the crops in the proportion of 100 Kg FYM & 10 Kg Ghan-Jiwamrita
