Jeevamrutha, popularized by Shri Subhash Palekar, is considered to be a panacea for the prosperity of small farmers. It is important to provide a congenial environment to microorganisms that help in making available the essential nutrients for plant growth viz., nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, to the plants. Jeevamrutha provides such an environment to beneficial microbes. Application of Jeevamrutha to soil improves the soil considerably. It also encourages microbial activity in the soil.

Preparation method

Ingredients (Sufficient for 1 acre)

Water - 200-250 lts

Cow dung - 10-15 kgs

Cow Urine - 3-4 lts

Jaggery - 1-2 kgs

Soil under a tree or un-disturbed location form the same land - 2-3 handfuls.

Mix all of them and keep them in a shade for 3-4 days. Stir the mixture once a day. Apply the mixture when the ground is wet for the plants. This seems to work wonders for the plants due to increased microbial activity by 3rd and 4th day. This is an excellent culture for enabling the exponential increase of beneficial microbes. The microbes are added thru 2-3 handful of local soil. 

Though it can be used even after 6-7 days, its quite a challenge getting near the mixture due to overpowering stench, hence advisable to use this within 3-4 days of preparation.
