    Organic fertilizers are the most natural form of fertilizers used in farms. It could be prepared manually with the help of compost and crop residues. It can also be derived from manure(animal excreta), human excreta and dead organic wastes. Other sources are meat processing, peat, slurry and guano. Maximum fertilizers used till now are artificial made up from harmful chemicals like phosphates, nitrogen and ammonia. This leads to aggravated condition of the soil and farm after an initial boom. The best organic fertilizer manufacturer in India-NivShakti Bioenergy Pvt. Ltd. has eradicated the use of harmful fertilizers by replacing them with their own effective organic fertilizers.

    Introduction

      Nivshakti bioenergy is the leading brand working since 2003 for the betterment and upgradation of the environment by supplying organic fertilizers continuously in the market. The fundamental aim of this label is commitment in quality and customer satisfaction. The different sources of fertilizers produce different qualities too. Many sources of these fertilizers are mined. Animal sources include those animals who reared for milk and meat products. The by-products like horns, feathers,bone,hides and hoof can be employed to use in these organic fertilizers. One of the most important of all is the chicken litter which provides the soil with great aeration. This domain puts a great stress on pleasing the customer. In this era of competitive rat-race, nivshakti bioenergy goes a step ahead in assuring the customer's satisfaction and lead.

    Are Chemical fertilizers okay?

      This best organic fertilizers manufacturer in India has a solo motive of making this world a poison free place to live in. Many a times, the farmers opt for chemical fertilizers in the hopes of making their crops grow resilient and hence with greater output. But they don't realize that in the long run, they are actually compromising with the quality of the soil and doing a major harm to the environment. Chemical fertilizers are generally NPK fertilizers, that is, it is made up of nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. It includes endless examples like sodium nitrate, ammonium sulfate, calcium ammonium nitrate, super phosphate of lime, urea, calcium cyanamide and calcium nitrate.? The constant use of these fertilizers imbalances the alkaline ph of the soil and makes it acidic. It also destroys all the useful microorganisms which are required for various natural processes like nitrogen fixation. These fertilizers can seep deep into the soil and pollute the underground water resources and hence causing harm to the health of the people who drink it. Also, instead of improving the quality of soil, it sometimes decreases it by eradicating the vitamin and mineral content of the soil. Excess sudden release of nitrogen by these chemical fertilizers leads to increased susceptibility to infection. One such example is mosaic disease of plants. The run-off from such chemical enriched soil can also cause severe damage to the nearby lake or any water body. It leads to a process called eutrophication. This is due to increased nitrogen enrichment of the water body which further leads to a dynamic growth of algae and microorganisms. It has a direct relation with the oxygen content of that water body. An increased growth of these organisms requires increased demand of oxygen and hence oxygen depletion which affects the aquatic fauna. Another environmental malady is increased emissions of carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide which provides an impetus to already increasing global warming. This domain understands the deep implications of the utilisation of chemical fertilizers on the environment and hence works for its eradication. The major drawback that this company is facing is the prejudiced thinking of the farmers against biotechnological products. The farmers also try to find an easy way out and opt for chemical fertilizers. It is because chemical fertilizers provide the plants with nutrients very quickly. These fertilizers also have the exact right amount of nutrients and vitamins so as to benefit the plants to the maximum extent. But they fail to realise that it is only transitory and the cons will eventually outweigh the pros.

    Types and Uses of Pesticides

    • By Blog_Admin
    • Comments 1

    Humans have utilised pesticides since 2000BC to protect their crops. The first pesticide was elementary sulphur dusting. Also poisonous plants were used as pesticides.

    What are pesticides?

    Pesticide= pest (insect or animal that destroy plants, food etc)  + cide (to kill) So pesticide is a substance or mixture of substances used for preventing, destroying and controlling any pests and disease carriers. This also prevents some species of plants and animals that causes harm or interferes in the growth of plants/ crops. We can also say pesticides are biological or chemical agents that are used to deter, incapacitate, kill or discourage pest increase. They are classified on the basis of biological mechanisms function or application method. Pesticide is also used in protecting crops from insects, plant pathogens, weeds and pests during production, processing, storage, transport,  marketing of food, agricultural commodities, wood and wood products or animal feedstuffs. Weeds compete with crops for light and nutrients. It is estimated that the worlds crops yield is reduced by 10-15% due to presence of weeds. So it is necessary to use herbicides and pesticides for better crop yield. Pesticide can be considered as : 1. Biodegradable - This can be broken down by microbes and other living beings into harmless compounds that dissolve in soil. 2. Persistent - These pesticides take months and years to break down.

    Types of pesticides

     

    Biopesticides

      These are naturally occurring or derived materials from living organisms or their metabolism. They come from animals, plants, minerals, bacteria. Only target pest and closely related organism are affected by these pesticides. They decompose quickly and pollution problems are avoided. They are less toxic to humans and the environment. Some biopesticides are bactericides, fungicides, herbicides, rodenticides, insecticides, larvicides, molluscicides, ovicides etc.       Bio pesticides are categorised as: a. Microbial pesticides: These include micro-organisms (bacteria, fungus, virus, protozoa) as active ingredients. Its advantage is that most microbial pesticides replicate in their target host and remain in the environment . This causes long term supression of pest population without repeating the application.<br. For example some fungi can kill certain weeds and other kind of fungi to kill certain insects. Bacillus thuringiensis(Bt) produces a protein that binds to gut of larvae to make it starve. b. Biochemical pesticides: These pesticides are naturally occurring substances that control pests by non-toxic mechanism. These pesticides interferes in the mating process of insects to reduce their number. Also scented plant extracts are used to trap insect pests. c.Plant-incorporated pesticides: These are substances produced by plants from genetic material added to the plant. Here the insect destroying property of the microbes are genetically added to the plant. For example Bacillus thuringiensis( Bt)  pesticides protein gene is introduced into plants genetic material so that it can manufacture the substance that destroys the pest as Bt does.

    Chemical pesticides

      Chemical reagents used to protect crops from various pests. Industrialization of agricultural sector increase the use of chemical on natural ecosystem. This is causing negative effect on environment and human health.
      • a.
    Organophosphate
      • - It is a chemical substance produced by
    esterification
      • process between phosperic acid and alcohol. This is a variety of insecticide that is highly toxic to insects.
    b.Carbamate - It is a chemical compound derived from carbamic acid. It kills insects as organophosphate does. This is used in gardens, agriculture,etc.    
      • c.
    Pyrethroids
      • - It is an organic compound similar to natural pyrethrin, produced by
    Chrysanthemum flower
      • . It is used as commercial household insecticide. It has insect repellent properties and harmless to humans. It can be toxic for some beneficial insects (bees, mayflies, dragonflies) and invertebrates.
    d.Sulphonylureas - This is a substitute urea herbicide(SUH).These are herbicides that inhibit plant enzyme (acetolactate synthace) resulting into potential herbicides. It is used to control weeds and unwanted grass.

    Uses of various pesticides

     
      • 1. Pesticides are applied and coated to seeds prior to planting to protect it from soil-borne diseases by soil treatment process. Seed coating is done with nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, pottasium and other micro-organisms making it less vulnerable to diseases.
     
      • 2. Slowing the growth of algae by using algaecides.
     
      • 3. Fungicides are used to control fungal problems like molds, mildew and rust.
     
      • 4. Herbicides are used to kill or inhibit the growth of unwanted plants.
     
      • 5. Rodenticides are used to kill mice, rodents, gophers.
     
      • 6. Wood preservative are used to protect wood from insects, fungus, pests.
     
      • 7. Use of pesticides in forestry, public health, domestic sphere has increased the productivity of agricultural products.
     
      • 8. Vector borne diseases are controlled by killing the vectors. Insecticides are used to control insects that spread deadly diseases like malaria. Disease control strategies are also crucial for protecting livestock.
     
      • 9. Herbicides and pesticides are used to maintain sports pitches, Cricket grounds, golf courses.
     
      • 10. Avicides are used to protect crops from birds.
     
      • 11. Molluscicides are used to protect plants from snails.
     
      • 12. Antifouling agents are used to kill organisms that attach to underwater surfaces like boat bottoms.
     
      • 13. Fumigants are gases and vapours that are intended to destroy pests on buildings and soil.
     
      • 14. Pheromones are used to disrupt the mating behaviour of insects.
     
      • 15. Ovicides are used to destroy the eggs of various insects, mites and other plants destroying organisms.
     

    Conclusion

      In a summary, we can say pesticides are fulfilling their intended purpose of controlling pests population. Chemical pesticides should be higly avoided. We should try to explore new varieties of biopesticides that would be promising to increase benefits and reduce the risks of environmental pollution. If you are looking for organic pesticides, enzymes and micronutrients and so on, try Nivshakti Bioenergy Pvt. Ltd. the best organic fertilizer manufacturers in India.

    Evolution of Agriculture in India

    • By Blog_Admin
    • No Comments

    Evolution of Agriculture in India brings to light its history, that dates back to the Indus Valley Civilization. Agriculture in India has always been and still continues to be the backbone of Indian economy. A recent survey claimed that the agricultural sector is accountable for the employment of 50% of the workforce and contributes approximately to 27.4% of the gross domestic product. The number still continues to grow as agriculture and allied activities now constitute the single largest contributor with more than 40% to the share. From a country dependent on imports to feed its population, it accounts for about 20% to the exports and is self-sufficient in grain production. While Indian agriculture grew at the rate of about 1 per cent yearly before Independence, a growth of around 2.6 per cent per year was observed in the post-Independence era. The evolution of agriculture in India in the last four decades has been one of the biggest achievements of independent India. National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) was launched in 1982 for the promotion of agriculture, other rural industries and their development. The late sixties and seventies were the highlights of 'Green Revolution'. It was revolutionary because it had a massive impact on the Indian economy. Indian government aimed to not depend on any other country for food sufficiency and that required adoption of modern methods of farming such as the use of high yielding crops. This resulted in more than 30% yield per unit from 1947 to 1979 and established India as one of the biggest agricultural producers. Wheat production rose significantly in Punjab and Haryana. Punjab was thus, named as the Wheat basket of India. Rice production also increased by 79.6 million tonnes. The total grain production crossed 131 million tonnes. This development and increase in agriculture in terms of production have been achieved by using a high yielding variety of seeds, bringing additional land for cultivation, improvement in irrigation facilities, implementation of better techniques evolved through agricultural research, water management and plant protection through the use of fertilizers and pesticides. Let us discuss the Evolution of Agriculture in India.

    Changes in Cropping patterns

    Changes in cropping pattern indicate the change in the proportion of area under different crops at a particular period of time. Before the economic planning in India, 76.7 per cent of the land was used for cultivation of food crops and 23.3 per cent on non-food or commercial crops. Areas under food crops were cut down to 65.83 per cent by 2001. At the same time, there was an increase in the percentage of areas under non-food crops which was 34.17%. This change in the allocation of the area from food crops to non-food crops highlights a change from subsistence agriculture- where the farm output is used for personal or local survival; to commercial agriculture- where cash crops are used for production purposes. There was also a significant change in consumption pattern as people preferred non-cereals to cereals. This led to a gradual increase in areas under fruits, vegetables and oilseeds. Increasing urbanization and changes in agricultural patterns are responsible for the changing consumer preferences.

    Irrigation system and Mechanisation of inputs

    Agricultural efficiency largely depends upon the techniques used and methods adopted. One such important input is the irrigation facilities. India with its doubling population, a certain proportion of lands are only available for cultivation. Hence, there is no possible scope of bringing extra land for cultivation and more output. To produce more from existing land, modern methods of production through better irrigation facilities were used. After land, water is the most essential in farming and agriculture. There are two main sources of irrigation: surface water and ground-water. Surface water is provided by the rivers, tanks, ponds, lakes etc. while the ground-water comes from tubewells, wells etc. These age-old systems were replaced by canal irrigation and well irrigation in 1950-51. Water-saving devices like sprinklers and methods of drip irrigation were also introduced. Electric irrigation pumps were introduced in around 1950 and have since been increased from 26 thousand in 1951 to 91 lakhs in 1991. National Watershed Development Project for Rainfed Area (NWDPRA), was implemented to focus on the development of integrated farming systems in watershed areas. The implements and tools used by the Indian farmers were obsolete and not up to the mark which ceased the development of agriculture. In light of this, investments were made in new farm machinery to save time, reduce the cost of production and thereby increase agricultural production. These machinery spare human labour and perform various works of agriculture like ploughing and harvesting. Mechanization of agriculture has definitely been an important step in the development of agriculture. The number of tractors provided to farmers increased to around 15 lakhs in 1990. In spite of this, the improvement in farm machinery use remained restricted to mainly north Indian states because of better and developed irrigation facilities. The government launched a National Pulse Development Programme (NPDP) in 1985 to increase the production of pulses through integrated farming techniques.

    Growth of Animal husbandry and Fisheries

    There was no growth in milk production between 1947 and 1978 with a yearly growth of about 1%. To resolve the issue, Operation Flood Programme (OFP) was launched which resulted in a 4.5% growth in the production. In 1996-97, milk production increased up to the number of 69 million tonnes per annum. Technology Mission on Dairy Development (TMDD, 1988) was also launched in order to accelerate the production further. The state of fish production was also aimed to enhance and thus, Blue Revolution took place. It refers to the immense growth in aquaculture that turned the production from 0.75 million in 1951 to 5.4 million in 1997 and established India as the second largest fish producing country in the world.

    Improvements in Fertilizers and Pesticides

    The fertilizer industry in India existing for the last 30 years and has also shown steady growth. The government realised the far-reaching impact of fertilisers for plant protection in the remote and hilly areas. The consumption of chemical fertilizer during 1999-2000 increased up to 15 million tonnes. However, major steps were taken to ensure sufficient supply of non-chemical fertilisers at affordable costs. Evolution of Agriculture in India has been discussed in this blog. The government implemented a national project for the maximum use of bio-fertilisers more than the chemical ones as they are cheaper in price and are more effective. The government aimed to popularize the use of organic sources of nutrients through this and also to push forward the biofertilizer production. Nivshakti Bioenergy Pvt. Ltd - is one of the best organic fertilizer manufacturers in India that provides a vast range of products that helps healthy plant growth and plant protection as well. Based in the north-east of India, we also deal with Plant Growth Regulators (PGR), agricultural enzymes and a range of micronutrients.

    Tea Production in India

    • By Blog_Admin
    • No Comments

    Indians love tea ; whether it is from a roadside chaiwalla or a high-end tea place, people love it for its aroma, taste and energizing ability. Hence, the growing demand for tea is majorly driving the India tea industry.

      Till the early nineteenth century, tea plants were only native to China. British consumed a large part of tea production in 1788 to break the Chinese monopoly on tea, costing them a heavy amount. However, East India company started tea productions in 1824 when Major Robert Bruce and Maniram Dewan discovered the indigenous wild tea bushes on the upper hills of Assam. In 1837, the first English tea garden was established at Chabua town in Upper Assam.

    By 1850, vast tracts of land were consumed for plantation and commercial production of tea was officially started by Assam Tea Company in the Brahmaputra region.

      Tea production in India is among the fastest growing trades in the world owing to favourable geographical conditions in the country, plenty of cheap and skilled labour, large distribution of tea plantations throughout the country and continuous innovation in varieties.

      Tea cultivation does not have a long tradition in India. It started in the middle nineteenth century in Assam. But at the same time, tea cultivation showed steady progress since when it was produced. Tea gardens covered 3,011 lakh hectares at the time of independence, producing 2.61 lakh tonnes of tea, which later set a high sales record of 1.27 million tonnes globally, due to a great deal of increase in the market demand.

      India holds the second position in maximum production of tea after China. Tea found in India is broadly categorized into 3 types- Assam tea, Darjeeling tea and Nilgiri tea. India accounts 3/4th of the total production for domestic consumption of the country.

     

    Conditions of Growth



      India being a subtropical country is favourable for the production of tea plants. The conditions for it to thrive are well in humid climates. The yield and the quality of tea directly depend on climate. The sufficient temperature for its growth is 20°-30°C. Temperatures above 35°C and below 10°C are considered too hot and cold respectively and are harmful. It also requires an annual rainfall of 150-300cc. Hence, a prolonged dry climate is harmful for tea and doesn't support growth at all. Tea bush grows well in soils rich in humus and iron content. In fact, large proportions of phosphorus and potash in the soil is what gives special flavour to tea. Heavy rainfall but stagnant water is injurious to its roots. It is, therefore, grown on hill slopes where water logging is not a problem.

     

    Cultivation and labour



        Tea farming is a labour-intensive form of work requiring a large workforce for the output. The workforce is required for the manual work, especially at the time of plucking the tea leaves. This is a process which requires skilled techniques for plucking two leaves and a bud at the same time.Cheap and skilled labour from India are also used abroad.

    Tea gardens are cultivated on the hill slopes. Seeds are sown in large numbers in the garden; it is regularly hoed and weeded as well. Shade plants are also grown along with the tea bush as they keep the temperature low for them, allowing a good amount of sunlight for its growth.

      Trimming and pruning is done in order to cut away the dead and decaying tea leaves and also to keep a certain height of the bushes i.e. about one metre. The aim of this process is also for an easy harvest done physically by women labourers.

    For harvesting purposes, mostly women labourers are employed in large numbers. Currently, the tea industry provides employment to one million workers. This also gives employment to around 10 million. It is one of the largest industries to employ women; Women workers constitute 50 per cent of the total workforce.

     

    Distribution



        Tea cultivation in India is highly concentrated in a few selected pockets - North-Eastern India, South India and the North-West India.Initially, tea plantations were confined to Upper Assam but later on, new areas in lower Assam and Darjeeling were also found to be potential tea plantation areas. They are also present in Nilgiri Hills of South India, Chikmagalur in Karnataka, Terai in the foothills of the Himalayas and in some areas of Himachal Pradesh.

      Assam is blessed with a bounty of natural resources and an annual rainfall ranging from 100 to 150cc ensures a very special place for the tea plants grown here. The tea produced here is simply referred to as Assam tea. They offer rich and strong taste with a bright leaker.

      Darjeeling grows one of the world's most exclusive tea plants at altitudes ranging from 600 to 2,000 metres. It has a more delicate and light flavour as compared to Assam tea.

      Nilgiri, situated in South India, is one of India's most distinctive places for tea production. The tea produced here is also named the same, after the Nilgiris or Blue Mountains. The plants grow at an elevation of 1000 to 2500 metres. Here, rainfall varies from 60 to 90 cc annually. These conditions highly favour the cultivation of this fine, elegant flavoured Nilgiri tea. The combination of its fragrance and briskness gives a unique taste to the Nilgiri tea.

     

    Challenges



        Every industry faces its own set of challenges, so does the tea industry. Production costs have crossed the rate of market prices over the past decade. The market is almost stagnant with prices lying between 125-132/kg range over the past five years. The main problem that the Indian tea industry is now facing is more production than its demand in the domestic and international market combined. Hence, over supply in the global market has shriveled the total export in other countries. China produces Black Tea in large quantities every year which they do not consume domestically. As a result, China is now trying to sell this entire volume of excess black tea in the market leading to a threat to the Indian tea exports.

       

    Pests and Diseases



        The tea plant is likely to be attacked by at least 150 insect species and 380 fungus diseases during its growth. In northeast India, around 125 pests and 190 fungi are detected every year with an estimation of 30 million kilogram of losses from pests and diseases per annum. In order to protect the plants and increase the yield, proper doses of nitrogenous fertilizers such as ammonium sulphate should be given to soil.

    The Top Agricultural States in India

    • By Blog_Admin
    • No Comments

    The base of every civilization is agriculture. With the different climate conditions, eating habits, and soil type all around the country, the top agricultural states in India provide the country with useful food crops and cash crops. However, all these crops require a specific climate and soil type to grow and thus, cannot be grown everywhere in the country.

    Out of the 28 states in our country, there are a few states that are the top agricultural states in India and have a major contribution to the agriculture sector of the country.
    The top agricultural states in India

    1. Uttar Pradesh



    Uttar Pradesh is the highest producing agricultural state. It is the largest producer and supplier of wheat, sugarcane, and other food crops. The state is also the second last producer of pulses such as rice, bajra, barley, etc. Because of the crops produced in Uttar Pradesh, the state plays major agricultural support to the country.

    2. West Bengal



    The largest producer of Rice, it is because of the state of West Bengal that India is the second-largest producer of Rice, only second to China the largest rice-producing country. The state is also the second-largest producer of tea one of the most used items in every Indian household.

    West Bengal is also a leading producer of jute, an important cash crop that is exported to other countries. The moist climate of the state also makes it a producer of crops like sesamum and tobacco.

    3. Punjab



    The state of Punjab is known for the plane lands and a great irrigation system. Because of the irrigation system, it is one of the producers of crops like rice and paddy. With the third rank in the top agricultural states in India, Punjab is also the third-largest producer of wheat. The state also favors the growth of crops like sugarcane, cotton, and food grains.

    4. Haryana



    The state of Haryana is neighbors to the paddy producing state of Punjab. It also has a great irrigation system like Punjab thus, supporting the growth of paddy and rice. Together, the two states are called the Granaries of the country for their extensive agriculture. Other crops grown here are sunflower, sugarcane, and wheat. However, the state is the second-largest producer of sunflowers.

    5. Madhya Pradesh



    The central Indian state ranks fifth among the top agricultural states in India. It is the largest producer of pulses like tur, udad, and soya bean. Madhya Pradesh is the largest producer of wheat and maize. The state is popular for the food crops that are meant for domestic use.

    6. Chhattisgarh



    "The rice bowl of central India", Chhattisgarh stands sixth in the list. It produces crops such as rice, maize, oilseeds, groundnut, etc. Rice, the staple crop of the state takes about 77% of the total agriculture of the state. The main source of water for irrigation is the rain.

    7. Odisha



    Odisha plays a major role in the agricultural sector of India. More than 60% of the population is in the farming sector resulting in low per capita income.

    Since the last few years, there has been a growth in the numbers of organic pesticides manufacturers in India. But, why? Both consumers and farmers understand the importance of using green bio products in agriculture. Thus, the farmers are bending towards a more sustainable and holistic way of growing plants and crops. People have also become more health conscious and are embracing natural methods of farming and organic food to stay healthy. Owing to all these reasons, there is much hullabaloo regarding organic farming in the country.

But in the earlier times, it was normal not to use any synthetic chemicals to grow crops or to control the pests. It was healthy and never caused any harmful reactions in humans or animals. However, with the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers in crops, there are many health hazards that humans are dealing with. Moreover, green bioproducts help in replenishing the soil year after year, which synthetic chemicals don’t do. Thus, the soil is depleted of essential nutrients, and that causes issues in further farming.

    So, it is both beneficial for humans as well as the environment to choose organic ways of growing crops. Most organic pesticides manufacturers understand the importance of returning to the old ways of farming, and thus, they are enthusiastic about producing more natural manures as well as pesticides to help the farmers grow organic crops.

    Are you looking for organic pesticides manufacturers? If you are planning to start organic farming, then you must be one of those farmers who is seeing the depletion in the fertility of the soil due to overuse of chemical fertilizers. You could also be a first-timer who knows the benefits of farming using organic pesticides and manures and want to provide healthy food products to the people. Whatever be your reason to start using organic manure on your farm, you have made a very good decision. By doing this, you’d be helping towards the conservation of the environment as well.

    What should be your first step?

    The first and most important part is to choose reputed organic pesticides manufacturer in India.

The manufacturer should be involved in the manufacturing of the best quality bioproducts. Moreover, the price of the fertilizers should be reasonable. You should also see whether or not the manufacturer you are choosing is capable of supplying the amount of manufacturer you require. In addition to all these, never forget to check whether it is a registered and licensed business. This is because only registered businesses could offer the best quality products at the most reasonable prices and you would not be cheated in any way.

    Leaching of chemicals from the farmlands to the nearest water bodies and also to the groundwater is a serious problem. This does not just deplete the natural capacity of the soil, but also contaminates the water bodies and harms the life forms in those. Thus, the ecological balance is hugely disturbed. The best organic pesticide companies India understands this and they create pesticides which kill selective pests of the crops without causing any harm to the environment. So, while you get a better yield year after year, the environment is also not disturbed.
