A week without Panchagavya and many of my plants have become dinner to a mysterious rodent/pest that eats the whole leaf, cuts stem and just leaves the stump. For seedlings nothing remains. I was hurt badly looking at the destruction caused by that creature. I still dont know what it is and seems to only come in the night.

The small bottle of panchagavya I had , got over and While I was on the lookout for Panchagavya source, I found this website. www.green-lands.com . I spoke to the person who runs this website Mrs Lalitha Ramakrishnan. I became her fan. She has a Goshala ( A place for cows) that shelters about 100+ cows which otherwise would have ended up in Slaughter houses. I must say there cannot be a holier thing on earth to do than saving a cow. With such a high number of cows, managing the whole thing is a herculian task.

She is very passionate about animals and loves what she does. Being an animal lover myself, I was very happy for having known such a person. Next month I am going to visit her Goshala and spend some time there. Also, she promised me that she will teach me how to make vermiwash and panchagavya. Though I will learn how to make them, I will still buy from them.

Why am I so interested in panchagavya? Here is why!

Panchagavya makes lots of difference to your plants. Typically the inorganic way of cultivation goes like this..

1. Buy seeds/cuttings

2. Sow them/root them.

3. When they start, spray weak solution of fertilizer, oh! and dont forget 1% fungicide.

4. When the grow, feed them with X-Y-Z NPK and more fungicide and insecticide.

5. When the flower, more NPK, more insecticide and by that we kill the good insects also.

With panchagavya, its as simple as this.

1. Just spray 3% panchagavya weekly. Thats all. Its fungicide, insecticide, pesticide, growth promoter, root promoter.

My chrysanthemum bush was haunted and ruled by aphids so much that we thought of destroying the whole plant. Initially I sprayed with dishsoap+oil spray and it got rid of the aphids for couple of days and my plant leaves became so dry and unnatural. Then after a couple of more days, aphids ruled. I almost gave up until I saw panchagavya.

I sprayed it twice a week and no aphids till this moment and the leaves look so green that looking at them feels good.

Panchagavya for life.!!

    • Hi KG,

      I am not sure if he/she talked about me. Because I only bought once from them. I think Lokesh ( another blog reader ) had mentioned that he got it from there. Must be him I guess. I would be glad to be of any help.

  5. hi gg,

  6. Hi,

    I have been a big fan of your blog and have been following it since it started. I always wanted to use your methods of container gardening but could not do so due to lack of space. but recently i shifted to a new apartment and have started a container garden of my own.

    Could you kindly help me as to where can i get panchakavya in mumbai or any other alternative source where i can order it from.

    Regards,
    Deepak

  7. Dear friends,

    If there is a considerable demand of Panchakavya in bangalore, and you can confirm the quantity, i could try and arrange for a special load to be delivered to bangalore, you can also consider purchase of Vermicompost, vermiwash, this would help me build a load feciable for us. Panchakavya Rs. 100.00 ,, Vermiwash Rs. 70.00,, Vermicompost Rs. 10.00 per kg.

    you can also contact me on my mobile, 9840096438
    thank you

  8. Hi,

    Read your article about panchakavya. Looks like, your webpage has solution and information on almost everything, keep up the good work. These aphids are ruling my garden, even on the just germinated seedlings. Please tell me where do I get it from here in Bangalore or if it is outside Bangalore how do I buy from them. I really hope with this, the aphids are destroyed. I just hate them all. Please respond asap.

  9. hi i am rahul from mumbai…just started as a geek gardener with planting okra and raddishes..i have read about panchgavya being sold by TNAU(tamil nadu agricultural university) 40rs/lit..

  10. Hi GG,

    I bought a liter of panchagavya from pristine naturals. I wanted to know the storage conditions for panchagavya. They supplied it in a pet bottle. The instruction I got was to store in cool, dark place with lid open. Will it attract files if left open? Also, do you know how to use the cow peat pit for vegetables in pots?
