Sayat Pimpri, Nashik, India
I have been a farmer since 1990. I cultivate 4 varieties of grapes: Thompson, black Syrah seedless, Jambo and Nanasahep Purple, and also a variety of vegetables. There is an export market for grapes, but more demand is inside India.
The thing is that people are getting sick everywhere and I did some research about that. I found out that
67% of the people die due to some cancer. I thought about the reason behind this and I came to organic natural farming. I studied what a plant or tree requires for its growth, also taking the atmosphere into consideration. Then I collected the data on balancing the atmosphere and the nutrients required. I spent one year on that subject. Afterwards, I organized a farmer’s get-together and told them about my findings.
Before knowing Agnihotra, I tried biodynamics, biocompost, vermicompost, vermiwash, and I placed earthworms around the trees to supply nutrients directly.
However, when I started using Agnihotra ash, the leaves became healthy and green, more micronutrients were available and the enzyme level improved instantly. The soil becomes more alive. The sweetness of the fruits started increasing. Using agrochemicals, the soil dies.
When you do organic farming, the production is good, but when you add Homa Therapy to that, the production is better and increases. Homa Therapy is like God’s blessing. When you work with God, you get better crops.
Mr. Rohan Bhosale (his friend and translator) comments:
Mr. Dhikale has done great research in organic fertilizing and has published a book on that subject to guide the farmers, so they can produce their own fertilizer. That book is popular in the field of agriculture.
When he came to know about Agnihotra and Homa farming, Mr. Dhikale found miraculous results in the increase of the bacterial level in the compost and positive contribution to the life cycle of earthworms.
He also found in Agnihotra ash and its medicines a powerful natural pesticide and many more things. Agnihotra and Homa Farming were a turning point in his research.
