After NPB Treatment
Before With fungal infestation
Farmer Mr. Vanabhai Patel Land 16
acres Historically fungal infestation and
aflatoxin devastated crops in the area. Farmer
applied NPB Secondary Culture (foliar spray and
1st irrigation). NPB Solid Culture and IEC Liquid
Sulfur were used once to improve soil pH and
microbial environment. The farm was free from
pest and insect attacks and had demonstrably more
yield than surrounding farms.

NPB Treatment
Farmer Mr. Kirit Patel Land 25 acres NPB Soil
Treatment was done by using NPB Secondary Culture
consisting of NPB Liquid Culture, IEC Activator
and jaggery. After one week from 1st irrigation,
baseline-treated field had 3-4 tillers and
NPB-treated field had 5-6 tillers

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 340
Lentils grown with NPB Treatment
In an interview, farmer claimed that quality of
lentils (size and appearance) is significantly
better than lentils grown with conventional
fertilizers
Farmer Mr. R. N. Rawat Land 5 acres Farmer
took great interest in NPB Products. He started
using NPB in 2002. His fields soil and water
were badly affected by salinity. Soil became a
hard crust seed germination rates were very
low. He now uses NPB Composting technology.He
prepares NPB Compost from available farm waste
(1000kg), NPB Liquid Culture (1 Ltr), NPB Solid
Culture (7.5 kg), 250 gm jaggery/ molasses and
water. Compost is ready in 8-10 days.

Farmer Mr. R. N. Rawat Land 5 acres
Farmer is ardent adopter of NPB technology for
last 6 years. He makes his own compost using NPB
microbial culture. He completely stopped using
synthetic fertilizers. He rejuvenated soil
affected by salinity and use of synthetic
fertilizers. Yield of wheat per acre is about
2000 kg/acre which is more than twice that of
baseline.

NPB Treated Plantation
Farmer Mr. Shailesh Gajjar Land 22
acres Plantation had Black Sigatoka on lower
leaves. STEP 1 Organic liquid sulfur was sprayed
on whole plant and on soil near stem. (Day 1)
STEP 2 NPB Solid Culture was sprinkled around
stem with light irrigation. (Day 1) STEP 3 NPB
Secondary Culture was applied with irrigation
(Day 7) Growth of the disease stopped within 2-3
days. Leaves started turning green. After 15
days, the plantation became disease free.

NPB Treated Plantation
Farmer Mr. Paresh Patel Farmer used NPB
Secondary Culture technology. No chemical
fertilizer or pesticides were used. Only
conventional compost was used _at_ 6 MT/acre.
Surrounding farms had viral and powdery mildew
attacks, but this farm was unaffected. Although
his fields were damaged 60 due to cyclones in
October 08, farmer harvested 65 kg / plant until
March 09 and expected to harvest 20 kg/plant
until end of April 09.

After (Left) Control (Right)
Farmer Mr. Ranjit Sinh Darbar Land 11 acres
The farm had a severe attack of Red Mite, White
Fly and Fruit Borer worm. Farmer tried
conventional chemical insecticide (Rs. 750/acre)
without success. He then turned to NPB
Bio-pesticide and Micronutrients treatments
(Rs.250/acre). Only one treatment helped control
the pest. The production increased from 100 kgs
(before treatment) to 200 kgs every alternate
day. NPB Secondary Culture Treatment is suggested
every month.

Infected (Above) NPB Treated (Below)
Farmer Mr. Hasmukh Patel Land 11 acres Farm
faced two problems. Heavy black cotton soil and
low tillering average of three per seedling.
NPB Soil treatment consisting of solid
culture, liquid culture along with cow dung and
farm biomass was applied to upper soil crust
6-8 inches deep - with a tractor. On 5th day,
rise in the soil temperature was observed
indicating substantial microbial activity. .
Sowing was done after 2 weeks. Germination was
approx. 2 days earlier flowering was 5 days
earlier than control. NPB treated soil produced
5-6 tillers per seedling compared to 3-4 tillers
in control plot. In Control plot root zone and
stems were worm infested while NPB treated crop
was unaffected.

Farmer Mr. Jagjit Singh Land 5 acres Farmer
conventionally used synthetic fertilizers such as
urea and diammonium phosphate (DAP). After
switching to NPB technology, he used NPB liquid
culture to make compost using local materials and
replaced all synthetic fertilizers with this
compost.

Papaya Western India, Early 2009
NPB
PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 182
Farmer Mr. Gautam Patel Land 30 acres Farmer
used NPB Soil Treatment Technology after sowing
for Papaya field. The field had mild viral
attack. NPB Secondary Culture Treatment was
repeated after one month. Surrounding farms had
nematodes, viral and powdery mildew attacks but
this farm was unaffected. Farmer got yield of
about 40 kgs/plant, significantly higher than
surrounding farms.

BT Cotton Gujarat, India, July 2009 Part 1
NPB
Problem BT cotton, grown from the genetically
engineered seeds from Monsanto, contains a gene
from bacteria that naturally produces a toxin to
fight off certain pests. This year in parts of
western India, BT cotton showed unusually low
yields and late flowering.
  1. Normally plant matures to bear flowers within 35
    to 40 days. Flowering is required for the cotton
    boll to develop.
  2. Farm on left shows almost 4.5 ft tall plants
    after 70 days with no flowers.
  3. All the nutrient expenses that farmer incurs
    contributes only to vegetative growth but no
    reproductive growth

BT Cotton Gujarat, India, July 2009 Part 2
NPB
Potential Cause of Late Flowering While it is
never conclusive, the widespread observation of
late or no flowering, according to the farmers
and seed suppliers, is likely a case of plants
experiencing abiotic stress due to unusual
weather pattern - late rains and warm weather.
  1. Farm on left shows almost 4 ft plants after 90
    days with no flowering
  2. In the photograph, the farmer on the right is
    discussing situation with a neighbor who did not
    experience this situation.

Production of Cotton Bolls
  1. About 1.5 to 2 ft tall plants started bearing
    flowers in 35 to 40 days (left)
  2. Photograph above shows boll formation on lower
    branches of the plant indicating efficient use of
    nutrients and healthy balancing of vegetative and
    reproductive growth of the plant.

Bitter Gourd Bharuch, India, July 2009 Part 1
NPB
Problem Bitter Gourd (Momordia Charantia) is a
major vegetable crop in tropical Asia grown over
60K hectares annually. It is particularly
considered effective against Type 2 diabetes.
Papaya and bitter gourd plants on a 50-acre farm
were infected by borer worm leading to poor yields
Red Borer Worm
Farmer Mr. Navin Patel Diagnosis Agronomists
visited the farm on 7/21/09 and suspected
soil-bound infections. The infected plant, as
expected, reduced flowering and produced smaller
gourds
No or little Flowering Drying creeper

Healthy Creepers and Flowering in Treated Plants
  • Farmer carried following treatment and saw
    improvement in three weeks.
  • Step 1
  • Foliar application of Liquid Sulfur (1.25 ml per
    litre) and proprietary blend of
    Micronutrients (1.25 ml / litre) on plants.
    Additionally, Liquid  Sulfur (2 ml / litre) was
    applied for drenching in root zone.
  • Step 2
  • NPB Secondary Culture was applied after 7 days
    for in root zone.
