1) Organic fertilizers (Vermicompost )

"Lanes and streets have to be cleansed of all the rubbish, which should be classified. There are portions which can be turned into manure, portions which have simply to be buried and portions which can be directly turned into wealth”

Mahatma Gandhi

In India cow dung as manure has been in use since time immemorial. But, with the advent of synthetic commercial fertilizers and pesticides in the modern agriculture, excessive use of these chemicals was resorted to obtain high yield in crops. However, this practice eventually led to irrational application of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and ultimately resulting in microbial degradation of soil, residual pesticide effects and ground water pollution due to heavy leaching of chemicals in to the aquifers.

Now, with a world turning green and switching to organic in every sense, MANURES AND ORGANIC FERTILIZERS is of great importance with respect to soil regeneration, both socially & economically. Realising the potential of ORGANIC COMPOST, we started manufacturing small quantity of vermicompost for our own domestic requirement. Encouraged by exceptional response in our field, we decided to pass on the benefits to fellow farmers and eventually started manufacturing vermicompost commercially under the brand name ‘Uttam’.

Quality is synonymous with Uttam and we adhere to all the guidelines set by various agencies while manufacturing vermicompost AS PER THE FCO,1985 NORMS . It provides essential macro and micronutrients in adequate and balanced level, and hence promotes better development of root system and growth in plants.

VERMICOMPOST Improves productivity, quality, and the shelf life of produce.
We feel proud in achieving a high level of satisfaction amongst our customers. We are a supplying our product to various states with a lot of diversed climatetic areas of  jammu and kashmir, himachal pradesh, punjab,haryana,delhi in crops such as kesar, apples, iceberg lettuce, nursery of exotic vegetables, agro forestry, vegetables ,landscaping and gardens

Why Vemicompost?

Properties of Vermicompost

Physical

  • Vermicompost is dark brown/black rich humus like coarse material, it is soft in feel & free from any foul smell, live weeds and other contamination
  • Vemicompost has electrically charged particles that improve absorption of plant nutrients in soil. Thus very high direct manuarial value at least 8-0 times better than farm yards manure (FYM)
  • Contains sufficient moisture (20-30 percent at the time of packing) to allow macro and micro flora to continuously enhance plant nutrients

Notes:

  • The above dosages are general recommendations, however for specific application soil testing is required
  • In rainfed crops where no chemical fertiliser has been used earlier, any quantity of vermi compost has been found to give good results
  • In case of high to very high chemical fertiliser usage conditions, it is recommended to reduce chemical fertiliser use by one third in each application and substitute vermin compost by bench marking Nitrogen content of vermin compost at 2.5% , 3.5%  and 5% in first, second & third application. (In each subsequent use of vermin compost the quantity of available Nitrogen increases)
  • Vermi Compost gives best results when used along with scientifically prepared farm yard manure


Benefits

  • Very rich in macro & micro flora induces biologist activities in the soil to make it living medium & improves the soil health
  • Provide all plant nutrients in desired quantities and soluble forms
  • Improves texture, structure and chemical composition of the soil
  • Easy to apply available in practice form (granular) and can be applied at any stage of the crop i.e. field preparation to few weeks before harvesting
  • Very high moisture retention capacity reduces water requirements up to 40 % under irrigated conditions and ensures sufficient output even under 20-40% short rainfall under rainfed conditions
  • Improves quality of farm produce (colour, texture, taste, size etc.). increases shell life and nutrients contents to provide nourishing diets
  • Most economical input, that increases production, reduces cost of cultivation and offers scope for value addition in the form of organic agriculture
  • Made from eco-friendly technology using organic waste and biotechnology process
