NPB

Yield Improvement


Peanut: Bhavnagar, India, June 2008

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 350%

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.

  • Kg of CO2 Offset: 195,000

Wheat: Bharuch, India, December 2008

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 40%

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

Conventional Treatment

NPB Treatment

  • Kg of CO2 Offset: 150,000

Lentil: Lucknow, India, March 2009

NPB

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 field’s 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.

Wheat: Lucknow, India, March 2009

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 850%

Left (NPB treated) Right (Baseline)

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.

Banana: Western India, July 2008

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 130%

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.

Sigatoka infected leaves

  • Kg of CO2 Offset: 78,125

Papaya Plantation: Ider, India, April 2009

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 229%

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 @ 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.

White Eggplant: Surat, India, April 2009

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 1400%

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.

Wheat: Ahmedabad, India, Nov. 2007

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 136%

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.

Wheat: Northeast India, Feb. 2009

NPB

PROFITABILITY IMPROVED BY 30%

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.

14


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.

Normally plant matures to bear flowers within 35 to 40 days. Flowering is required for the cotton boll to develop.

Farm on left shows almost 4.5 ft tall plants after 70 days with no flowers.

All the nutrient expenses that farmer incurs contributes only to vegetative growth but no reproductive growth

18


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.

Farm on left shows almost 4+ ft plants after 90 days with no flowering

In the photograph, the farmer on the right is discussing situation with a neighbor who did not experience this situation.

BT Cotton: Gujarat, India, July 2009 Part 3

NPB

Timely NPB Treatment Produces On Time Flowering & Production of Cotton Bolls

About 1.5 to 2 ft tall plants started bearing flowers in 35 to 40 days (left)

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
