1. Kudos to Mr. Krishnappa Gowda and you for recording the uploading the video.

    It might be useful if you can also put subtitles in English.

    I guess you can also tag this as Subhash Palekar's Natural farming model. He seems to have planted according to Mr. Palekar's model.

    Some more info on how he irrigates and how he uses Jeevamruta also might be useful.


  2. by nature it is a doublewet land and what he says is mulching with 10% of water ( of regular farming ) is more than enough even if it is a dryland.He gave me good example for this . If you travel by your own vehicle , u can stop whenever u want to. similarly if it a dryland u can water it only if required. It produces verygood results.

  3. This is in Bannur village of Mandya District of Karnataka state.Plz visit this a s a p. Mr.Krishnappa – 09880587545. He allows you only on Sundays with prior appointment. Till today some 4 lakh people visited his farm.

  4. I was just curious so searched for average Arecanut tree yield..I could not find any result which says it's more than 5kg..and here in this video this person is claiming it to be 25 kg and according to him Mr. Palekar claims it to be 50 Kg :0

  5. In the same way as a forest produces uncountable export quality fruits year after year, without fertilizer, pesticide, tractors or irrigation, in the same way a farmer can grow export quality produce at zero cost.

    Two secrets – jiwamruta and mulching.

  6. so true Sujoy.. by the end of this video automatically my hands were joined in a "Namaskar" .. thanks a billion!

  7. Sarath… I am starting my organic farming very soon.. thanks for sharing this video
    you don't know how much confidence this video has added to my dream of being a natural farmer. Being a city born guy you really don't have or meet people with whom we can share this idea.. do share with me anything related to natural farming.. my mail [email protected] thanks again..

  8. Dear Ajay Kedare ,

    Thanks for the compliments and I really appreciate you for starting Natural Farming. Organic farming is entirely different from Natural Farming. Organic farming involves vermicompost or Biodynamic fertiliser .Both are very dangerious for human beings. vermicompost involves the excrita of a foreign worm called Eisenia fetida which excrits Heavy metals and the Biodynamic is a farse method. Plz visit the websitewww.palekarzerobudgetspiritualfarming.orgfor much more clarity.

  9. Hola !!! i d like to know composition of the Jeevamuthra , i m french and for example i dont know what jaggery is … If anybody knows , please let me know it too … Stay Blessed

  10. Hola Sarath !!! , may i ask You how You consider Jeevamuthra ??? it is a fertilizer that might be at least as dangerous with BioDynamic preparations , there is some Cow manures wich might contains germs and worms as You mention , many heavy metal (especially the traffic control one …lol ) …. i think the danger with the type of culture You mention is that it is agriculture , the conventional one in every bad aspects of it except the chemicals used ….

  11. I consider Jeevamruta as a holy elixir . This is prepared by the Dung and Urine of Indian native Cow breeds ( Bos Indicus ). We blend it with bare hands and nothing happens and any skin diseases will vanish. The excrition contains on heavy metals and no harmful bacteria. Jaggery is raw sugar prepared by native farmers at their farms. It is uasually yellowish brown. To know more about jeevamruta , visitwww.palekarzerobudgetspiritualfarming.orgThank you and God bless you.

  12. Dear Sarath.. thanks for the advice and the link about Palekar's website.. I had the opportunity to go through ZBF earliar and truely he is doing great work.. but as far as organic farming we do not really have to get Eisenia fetida in the farm.. our local and naturally friendly Earthworm can do the amazing work of tilling of the land.. Also these earthworm appears naturaly in the soil by putting silt or mulching or organic waste etc.. and eventually turn the land fertile..?

  13. So call it Natural Farming.I simply say that when there is no any kind of external input to the plants then only it is called as Natural Farming. In ZBNF we use Jeevamrutha as a culture and not as an input. After the transition period ( may be after two thre years ) there is no necessity of Jeevamrutha also.

  14. Dear Sarath, I think you took offense to my above comment, if so, then that wasn't the intention and I regret that… You are doing a noble job of sharing good knowledge and I respect it..

  15. Never , I just wanted to differentiate Organic farming & Natural Farming and I want to create this awareness among the right people like you Ajay.Plz do share all the doubts , I will never take them as offensive ones.

  16. i can not understand how in 36 *36 ft block 4 sub blocks of 9*9 ft can done, can any body explain me the plantation planning ( regarding space in between these plants ) or the groung plan for such plantation pl

  17. ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಮಾತಾಡ್ರಿ ಗೌಡ್ರೆ, ನಾವೂ ಸ್ವೊಲ್ಪ ಅರ್ಥ ಮಾಡ್ಕೊಳ್ಬೋದು.

  18. Sarath, Many thanks for sharing the video. Is there a way i can talk to the farmers using this model and gain more knowledge? looks the website is not working any more. Any info is highly appreciated.

  19. Satish,
    U can talk to this farmer Sri.Krishnappa – 09880587545,OR,visitwww.palekarzerobudgetspiritualfarming.orgfor more farmers practicing this kind of agriculture.Thank you.

  20. fantastic video, and the 36'X36" planting plan is just a little more than this video. Lay out is very very important, if you can provide this, it will do a lot good

  21. Any body guide me where can I get training / further tips? I wish I could grow plants in the backyard & get some income.

  22. Thanks for sharing!  It would be great to learn Mr. Gowda's row placement of his trees on either his 36ft x 36ft block or 9ft x 9ft sub-block.  That is, what tree is placed where on the block or sub-block.

  23. i can not understand how in 36 *36 ft block 4 sub blocks of 9*9 ft can done, can any body explain me the plantation planning ( regarding space in between these plants ) or the ground plan for such plantation pls  email   [email protected]

  24. The universities all over the world should teach the principles and the research institutes of this world should investigate the underlying mechanisms of Sepp Holzer permaculture/agro-ecology. Sepp Holzer's agricultural system beats conventional/GMO farming in every regard: no factory animal farming, no chemical or genetic pollution, more production per surface unit, huge bio-diversity, extreme landscape beauty, intact and clean water household, no deforestation, no hunger, no epidemic of diseases, each place would have its unique plant varieties, and most important, food would become medicine, as food grown in permaculture is packed with nutrients and antioxydants. If the world adopts Sepp Holzer's farming system, we would live in a world of abundance and beauty. His system, methods and philosophy can be successfully applied anywhere in the world. We could feed 3 times more people than currently live on earth. If Holzer agro-ecology prevails, the earth's biosphere will soon be regenerated. Sepp Holzer has already more than 200 projects in the world, tendency rising. He knows how to reclaim deserts and turn them into lush, fertile land.

    If you wanna get a glimpse of what one of Sepp Holzer’s international projects looks like, please travel online to Portugal:
    Vive Sepp Holzer! Hoch lebe Sepp Holzer! 赛普·霍尔泽,加油!

  25. It's really great fore sight. It sounds very good. If implemented 100% at least we may get 50% of the said results. I will implement it for sure. Mohan

  26. i can not understand how in 36 *36 ft block 4 sub blocks of 9*9 ft can done, can any body explain me the plantation planning ( regarding space in between these plants ) or the ground plan for such plantation

  27. Very helpful for farmers those who are interested in agriculture with minimum investment . Best wishes

  28. This is incredible farming act in incredible India. Kudos to the farmer and Mr.Sarath for documenting the Five Layers Model (FLM). The enthusiasm of the farmer has converted into love that fed the plants in the form of Jeevamrutham. I wish Sri Krishnappa Dasappa Gowda help all his farmer friends implement the same model. Sri Gowda's farm is a great lesson for all the natural farming students, including me. Jai Hind. Happy farming to all..Y.S.R.K.PRASAD. Ph#7207358186
