Indigenous Knowledge is being used by arid zone farmers from the time immemorial to protect their crops from various diseases and pests. The use of Raw cow milk is validated through scientific experimentation using standard methods and it was found that it worked nicely when used with other biocontrol agents as seed treatment as well as spray treatments. The phenomenon of induced resistance was evident in the results obtained.

  • Silicone adjuvant could be used for yield enhancement by mixing it with micronutrients &amp; liquid fertilizers and also used to enhance the activity &amp; efficacy of pesticides sprays such as herbicides, insecticides and fungicides to control or eliminate unwanted pests..
