Paddy cultivation update
An organic input, Panchakavyam was prepared this month to add to the paddy field. [for 25 cent cow dung 1.25 kg, cow urine 0.75 lt, ghee 0.250 kg, milk 0.5 lts, curd 0.5 lt, jaggery 0.250 kg, tender coconut water 0.75 lts, 3 ripe bananas.] A crisis looms with the water level in our open well steadily decreasing and so we decided to explore alternatives to flooding the paddy field. A couple of representatives visited Auroville to look at practices such as mulching and drip irrigation. Much inspired after seeing for oneself, we are now mulching and setting up the drip irrigation.
