Effects of adopting a biodynamic calendar for timing the cultural operations and a manurial schedule involving two biodynamic preparations (separately or together) and panchagavyam (a mixture of 5:1 cow dung and ghee in a 5:3:3:5 cow’s urine, curd, milk, and water formulation) in conjunction with organic manures as well as ‘organic manures alone’, and the recommended practices of nutrient management (RP) on yield, quality, and economics of chilli cultivation were evaluated in a field experiment…

Productivity and profitability of Indian mustard under different organic nutrient management practices in Semi-arid region

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of the different organic nutrient sources on productivity and profitability of Indian mustard and found that mustard productivity and yield were significantly higher with poultry manure over the no manure application and superior over rest organic treatments.

Performance of Chilli (Capsicum annuum) cv. ‘Krishna Jolokia’ as Influenced by Organic Inputs and Microbial Consortium under Assam Condition

Chilli (Capsicum annuum var. accuminatum), also called hot pepper is an important cash crop in India and grown for its pungent fruits. Chillies are grown on well-drained loam or sandy loam soils

Standardization of Production Technology for Transplanted Organic Chilli (Capsicum annuum L.)

A field experiment was conducted to study the effect of organic nutrients, liquid organics and organic pest management practices on growth, yield and quality of chilli (Capsicum annum L.) at

Application of biodynamic prep arations and organic manures for or- ganic production of cumin (Cuminum cyminum L.)

Cumin ( Cuminum cyminum L.) is a harbacous and medicinal crop which is one of the most import ant export crop of India. Export of organic spices is increasing from India and cumin is one of them.


Biodynamics can be understood as a combination of “biological dynamic” agriculture practices. Sheiner (1924) recommended eight preparations; two of them are stirred in water in a specific way and

Influence of organic manures and bio-dynamic preparations on growth, yield and quality of Khasi Mandarin (Citrus reticulata Blanco) in Mizoram, North-East India

The pooled analysis of two year data indicated that integrated application of FYM + CPP + BD 500 + BD 501 (T6) resulted in maximum plant height, plant girth, canopy spread and canopy volume and with respect to quality parameters, T7 (VC) recorded the lowest moisture content during both the years of study as well as in pooled analysis.

Effect of biodynamic preparations on the content of some mineral elements and starch in tubers of three coloured potato cultivars

It was found that the quality indicators of potato tubers depended on the genetic characteristics of a cultivar, and BD preparations 500 and 501 had no significant effect on the content of dry matter and mineral element in coloured potato tuber in any of the experimental variants.

Chillies (Capsicum annnum L.), a member of the family Solanaceae, is an important commercial spice cum vegetable crop of India and has medicinal value and lot of export potential.

Solarized manure and two irrigation methods on fruit yield of jalapeno chili (Capsicum annuum L. var. annuum) - Estiércol solarizado y dos métodos de riego en la producción de chile jalapeño (Capsicum annuum L. var. annuum)

Drip irrigation had a positive effect in the fruit yield in spite of delivering a lesser amount of water, and soil pH and electrical conductivity remained unchanged among treatments in each year of the study.

Influence of Biodynamic Preparations on the Quality Indices and Antioxidant Compounds Content in the Tubers of Coloured Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L.)

Biodynamic preparations 500 and 501 are plant strengthening agents of biodynamic agriculture method, prepared of manure and powdered quartz. The objective of the present study was to determine
