The best vegetables, including palak, chaurai, nenua, taruyi, lauki and kohara, as well as organic fertilizers, were distributed to farmers to plant vegetables in vegetable gardens or on farms during a farmers’ meeting and training program organized in Bahdurpur village in Chautpur region on Monday to build roofs.
The program was created by Dr. Jay Prakash Verma, Senior Assistant Professor, Institute of Environment and Sustainable Development, BHU, as part of the Department of Science and Technology (DST) funded project entitled “Developing Low-Cost Technology for Organic Vegetable Production through Vertical Farming”. .
The program aimed to encourage farmers to grow chemical-free vegetables, including leafy greens, which boost the immune system and are rich in micronutrients.
In the last 15 years, Dr. Verma conducted research on biofertilizers, biodecomposers, biocontrol agents, plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) and endophytes to develop potential microbial vaccines for multicrop farming in Uttar Pradesh. dr Verma and his team collected rhizosphere soils from Azamgarh, Jaunpur, Mirzapur, Chanduauli, Varanasi, Allahabad, Sonbhadra, Lucknow, Pratapgarh, Meerut, Balllia, Ghazipur, Gorakhpur and other locations and isolated soil microbes.
After isolation, the plant growth-promoting properties were evaluated to develop efficient and indigenous microbial inoculants as potential biofertilizers for multi-crop production. dr Verma spoke about kitchen gardening and composting kitchen scraps to convert compost and use it for vegetable production in your own garden or in any plastic container in a vertical way to produce maximum vegetables and green leafy vegetables in a vertical cultivation. This allows farmers to grow vegetables both at home and in the field.
