Growing Turmeric with Homa Organic Farming

Turmeric crop reached a height of 5 feet in places

  • We planted turmeric during monsoon season, 2006.
  • Turmeric is not usually grown in our area.
  • Turmeric is a food spice and also a medicine (nature's antibiotic)
  • We planted the small section of quarter acre (0.1 ha) between the Agni Shala and the Yajnya Shala.
  • We sprayed the crop several times during the season with Biosol solution.
  • Biosol is an important part of Homa Organic Farming. It is a very powerful natural fertilizer which contains Agnihotra ash.
  • After 8 months the crop was ready for harvesting.
  • Harvest from quarter acre yielded 1.52 tonnes which means 6.1 tonnes per acre
  • Average dryland harvest with agro-chemicals is about 4 tonnes per acre.
  • No artificial agro-chemicals are used on a Homa Farm.
