Century Blog - Organic Farmer Narayan Reddy Team Century Real Estate met the passionate Organic Farmer Narayan Reddy who shared his life’s experiences & knowledge on how one can nurture an Organic Garden that reaps infinite benefits, help preserve nature & Give Back Green.

82 years and still going strong, Mr. Narayana Reddy has won numerous awards for his great work as an Organic Farmer. Dr. Narayana Reddy has won the prestigious Karnataka Rajyotsava Award thrice for his contribution to farming. He talked about various issues starting from Agricultural Science, Nutrient requirements of Plants, Simple Living, Pests, Organic pesticides, Organic fertilizers, seeds required for a lush green organic garden, health benefits and tips on cooking the most healthiest food.

On Nutrition & Pest Management Mr. Reddy says that there are plenty of nutrients in the soil for plants to take and so, they are rich enough for a healthy plant to grow as it needs just our nurturing & care. The beneficial insects & rain water regenerate nutrients into the soil. Mr. Reddy reiterated that the efficiency of chemical fertilizers is just 16-20% to a maximum. In order to regenerate the soil (back from in-organic to organic) he says cow’s urine & dung, jaggery & gram flour can do the magic, by mixing it thoroughly and fermenting it for 7 days. Then stir it so that the crest is not formed. On 8th-9th day it is very effective, as one can mix this with water and spray it around the soil to activate Microbial activity. Century Blog: Organic Farmer Narayan Reddy - Organic Farming Secrets & Tips
