Cultivating and Managing your farm I Natural farming I Narayana Reddy


This coconut tree, it has been 24 years since I bought this land I have not dug its roots till now I have not made trenches for it, I only use drip irrigation for it I have not deweeded Any plant that will come near it will not be harmed…. Everybody says there will competition among the roots for manure if I do that Always, its not the roots which compete for food it is the shoot which will compete for sunlight it is the shoot which will compete for sunlight If you give the trees enough sunlight and air If you give the trees enough sunlight and air The roots will prosper, it is complimentory The roots As I told you, per square millimeter 4 cubic meters of roots are there, 8 cubic meter in my farm I guess where? in a square millimeter each gram of root will accomodate a billion microorganisms If it dies it is manure for me… and fodder for earthworms more important thing is, listen carefully roots and their secretion activity of microorganisms movements of earthworms rigging holes in the earth is physical process and earthworm secretion that is chemical process if it dies, it becomes a biological process these three processes and the secretion of roots combine to form fluoric acid that acid can melt even a stone they use that acid in granite business to polish the stone that fluoric acid comes out as an outcome 70% of our soil is nothing but dust particle broken down from stone if you melt 1 kg of that dust 350 mg of plant nutrient allround nutrient so why should I provide manure? If I tilled the soil all these activities would get upset and then, manure all these roots even the roots from that banana tree when all of them produce nutrients why should I provide manure? I am telling truth, past 24 years I have not put manure to this land even once we harvest 170 coconuts everytime and the number increases by 5 to 10 every year… It may reach 250 before I die I have not dug trenches, I have spent a penny other farmers drive tractor in the coconut farm all the time due to that the roots will get cut… they catch disease those roots, they have to sprout again to get water and nutrients to store starch from photosynthesis all the nutrients are wasted upon roots instead of coconuts can you see the stupidity of it? sayings like, ” you should not sow ragi unless you till the soil 4 times,” “if you dont till for 8 times you cannot grow coconut trees,” due to these misconceptions we farmers are in a mess, If you understand the soil properly we will come to know that whatever external things we do is destructive All that agriculture universities say is not helpful their methods end up destructing the soil dense planting if it is done it smells like mould for that they use fungicide if thick shade is there always worms prosper in soil, for that they use pesticide they use plenty of seeds and you must provide manure as you have disrupted the natural processes rendering the soil weak one after another boulders are being put on the farmers head Why we cannot sense the weight is I will explain with a small example In a vessel if you take some cold water and put a frog in it now lit fire under the vessel it will not escape until it dies because the water was cold before then it got a bit warmer and the water got hot the frog is adjusting forever not understanding the increase in temperature finally it will die there, but will not escape if you put the same frog in hot water it escapes quickly the same way we farmers have adjusted ourselves we are being burdened over and over again we have learnt to bear it without complaining we do not know we are being burdened yet we are being burdened so slowly, one after the other if one has to come out of this vicious circle please visit farms like mine not only mine,there are people who have done better job see to these trees I have attached pepper creeper planted it last year It has attached itself well we tie it for a few days later the creepers attach themselves into the minute pores see this tree is 5 years old It was this small , it was planted on june 4 somebody had come to invite me, thats how I remember that day It was small then day before yesterday our new DFO had come his driver commented on this tree that it is all grown up I was surprised to see it so big I had not noticed at all It is such a fast growing tree Visitor: If you plant it in border how much distance should you keep in between? 5 feets Visitor :Why is this tree needed? It was not intentional,when I dug a trench here, the root from that tree had come here, and it got cut it sprouted some leaves here Then I was like, ” we need this tree!” but these two trees are quite independent Vistor: So you should keep 5 feet distance in border… Only in border, if you want to do plantation you have to keep 18 feet distance other wise it will not grow visitor: Why is it’s tip broken? We cut its tip intentionally, because if it goes too high, in a storm those whole tree will break at its base… you cannot predict where it will break due to wind so at 17 to 18 ft we only cut its tip And we cut one branch after another for fodder Only one branch for once we leave the other branches as it once this cut branch starts shooting leaves we cut the others. This banana tree might seem useless to you it was planted 24 years ago gives two and a half Kg yeild it is 125 rs per kg in market we get 2 to 3 banana pod per year 125 times 2 is 250 Rs, in 24 years I have spent a Rs on it it is giving me good yield It is a good crop for ,me people think ” why has he kept these banana trees?” It is protecting the soil by giving shade keeps it moist and each tree gives me 2 – 3 kg biomass which becomes manure all that from 24 years old trees can you see the copper inside the tree? it is about the size of a pencil 24 years ago, Nusi disease has not affected it there is a disease called “nusi” it has ruined the coconut trees in whole Karnataka Small buds will fall down if it grows you cannot peel it open nobody will drink its water as it gets deformed a small bug which drinks the tree sap causes that If you put this copper rod Me and my friend devised this plan He is an ayurvedic doctor When his patients come with eczema he prescribes a copper bangle to wear to wear it on ankles to that he wraps a cloth around he tells the patients keep the bangle wet I wondered why he did that He explained that when you wear it it will react with body and kills the bacteria causing eczema How to apply the same to coconut tree? 4 days and night we discussed How much and where to put? Then we decided we will insert it inside about a pencil sized rod it is difficult to put a smaller one inside as per our calculations, it releases 250 to 300 mg copper sulphate is released per day copper sulphate It is enough for that bug we get mineral, we need copper Instead of putting poisonous chemicals to roots which gets absorbed in half an hour but the disease recurs after 15 days you are not supposed to drink its water during that time cannot eat its flesh If you keep poisoning for every 15 days, when will you use the yield? In this method we get the mineral also the bug is in control too About 15000 people have tried after seeing this method in my farm successfully It has been 24 years since I have inserted those rods It is still working I do not know when will is get dissolved Visitor: People say that if you cut these fruit trees once it will grow faster…. Not all trees… if you cut sapota the whole tree dies guava tree, will benefit from it for some extent mango tree also once can cut Visitor: what about custard apple? you can cut it Thats ‘appemidi’ mango the one before you Nagesh Hegde gifted it to me on the occasion of a lecture I gave on his father’s memorial day It is 16years old It is giving mangos from past 8 years it is a grafted tree It may yield about 60 kgs this time it is 200 Rs per kg, which means I will get 12000 Rs from it So I have grafted all these plants with that tree branches See this is also a mango plant It is a native variety It is immune from root disease and all Its main duty is to provide water and manure… I have grafted it with ‘appemidi’ stalk so that it will inherit its charecteristics There is no harm in it If you do not graft a mango plant it will not inherit it’s mother’s charecteristics Because bees travel for 1 kms searching for honey They sit on about a 1000 trees of some 200 varieties we dont know which pollen will it bring to this plant Therefore if a mango plant has to inherit its mother’s charecteristic you must graft it another thing when you graft the plant it will not live long If you graft it this june Next year you will get fruit but the plant will not prosper So it has to grow till about 6 to 7 ft high and 5 to 6 ft wide canopy for four years One set of flowers will be removed Then it starts giving fruit abundently otherwise if fruits come at a young age, the plant will not prosper Visitor: when do you remove the grafted plants flower? depends on the growth of plant it has to grow this big If you look after it for 4 years you can remove it later…. Visitor: You have plenty of bird population that is because I do not spray poison on trees, otherwise they will die since there is no poison in my trees they come to eat the worms which are not posionous the birds survive and I grow grains specially for birds in the summer types of millets I spill them in ground those birds eat those grains and stay here without any fear it is not just a matter of compassion For me it is beneficial they eat worms in fruits and help me they eat fruit too but only 2% of my fruits but they 8% worms Our farmers what they do, to save that 2% of fruits they put 20% poison on their fruits and then they lose their health they do all that is bad what was the loss before? 2% to avoid that you end up spending 20%more What an economy! there is a lake there this trench connects that lake to another lake 4 kms away I am the only one has grown trees here No one else has grown trees this time during rainy season water flowed down here for 15 days this deep it is not that big a lake If you build bund on it, you wont get much water lakes will not have water in future less rain is not the only reason years ago this place was grazing plains for cows the water naturally flowed into lakes and streams Now all that plot is being distributed to people by government Some MLAs also bought lands they built bunds around the lakes and stopped the water flow even if it rains it is difficult to fill the lakes so we have to convert the whole farm into a big lake there should be lot of earthworms, trees and plants see the soil is so yeilding it is so moist if it rains for about 15 cms not even a drop escapes from my land it absorbs all the water the excess water seeps into borewell water that’s why my borewell gets water at 450 feet the one near my house gets water at 180 ft in this whole village you will not get a bore well that gets water above 1200ft people say that I am lucky, NO, its not my luck It’s the way my system works

  7. Modern Agriculture do not consider these life conditions below the ground as they should be, They just portray as if soil is life less and the roots as similar to tube carrying water to the tip of the tree. But now from his observation we can see the everything in the farm is full of life( not some irrigation mechanism is enough to maintain soil and tree's health).

  8. Hi Native circle, i am from kerala. i would like to visit reddy sir farm for a farm tour, can you please let me know when the next is arranged?

  10. —— चंदन की खेती ——–

    "किसानों की आर्थिक स्थिती सुधारने एवं
    भविष्य सवांरने का जरिया"

    *आज सफेद चंदन की लकड़ी का मूल्य दिनदुना
    रात चौगुना बढ़ते जारहा है। आज सफेद
    चंदन की लकड़ी का मूल्य थोक में 8000/kg से
    भी ज्यादा है।*

    चंदन का पौधा 15 सालों
    में 25 से 30 kg लकड़ी
    देता है। अर्थात आज 15 साल का पेड़ लगभग 2 लाख मूल्य का है।

    मिट्टी: लाल, दोमट, काली,
    बलुआही आदि उर्वर मिट्टी

    1 एकड़ जमीन में 400 चंद
    का पेड़ लगाया जाता है अर्थात 10फिट के अंतराल पर। दो चंदन के पेड़ के बीच एक सहजन(Drum stick) या
    आम या अमरूद या आनर का पेड़ लगाना आवश्यक है। एक एकड़ सहजन प्रतिवर्ष 60000 – 70000 से
    ज्यादा का होता है, अर्थात पारंपरिक खेती से भी ज्यादा फायदा। मतलब किसानों का
    प्रति वर्ष आय भी बढ़ जाएगा और साथ मे चंदन
    भी तैयार हो जाएगा जो कि आपका भविष्य सुधार देगा।

    *यदि आप अपने बच्चे के नाम से 15 पेंड लगा देते हैं तो बच्चे के पढ़ाई और शादी के खर्च के लिए
    चंदन पेड़ पर्याप्त है।*

    चंदन की नर्सरी उपलब्ध है:

  11. Can subtitles be uploaded for this video (and other videos on this channel)? Narayan Reddy sir is an absolute legend, and more of India needs to understand the message he is propagating! Thanks!

  12. Shri L Narayana reddy garu is a great soul, visionary, gifted , may his soul rest in peace. It is sad and unfortunate that I have not met him when he was alive . Today I met his elder son and his wife in varthur and paid my respects to sri naryanareddy garu. It is a great loss to mankind and humanity….do not know how the future of mankind and human living will be …

  13. Dammn ! This man should be awarded and should be funded by government to preach his knowledge to every farmer

  14. His knowledge has no match with any stupid agricultural officer, these days no agricultural student has this kind of knowledge, instead of going to college staying with this legend will give u phd

  15. Articultural ministry working in India in all cities puting weast foreign tree seeds and plants growing since British time

  16. Hats off sir….nimmantoru namma kannadada hemme. Sir nimminda tumba kaliyodide
