“Amrut Mitti”, It is a product of naturally prepared soil or organic soil, made with the help of dead and decayed leaves, as well as organic matter derived from animals. All these integrate to concoct a fertile and nutrient-rich soil that promises a healthy life for your dearest plants.
Main four steps for preparing nectar soil are :
1. Making of Amrit water.
2. Preparation of pile for manure
3. By placing different plants on the heap, energizing the atmosphere of the sun and air, making the soil more fertile.
4 Take care of the pile.
Materials needed for making nectar soil :
Amrit water : 500 liters.
Organic waste : 100 kg.
Fine clay : 225 liters (10 per cent fine sand)
Different seeds : 300 grams
What is organic waste?
Biological materials such as tree leaves, crop husk, grass, fodder etc…. are called biomass or biological waste to prepare nectar soil.
Where will you get fine soil?
This fine soil is stored in large quantities on river banks. If the soil is smooth, then add about ten per cent fine sand. The fine dust in the household waste is the best fine soil. This is found in the upper half inch layer of land in the villages, farms. It can gather by broom very easly.
How to ready the Piles ?
Make well-drained organic waste into fine-grained 3-4-inch pieces. After that put these pieces in an empty tank, (not on the ground made on the ground, because it will soon dry the water). Now put the pre-prepared nectar water on it. Put the complete nectar water in two to three times by pressing it completely. Now put heavy stones or wooden plates on pieces of organic waste so that its pieces do not come out of Amrut water. Then keep biological waste in nectar water for 24 hours. Then we will put organic waste and soil layers of 10 feet long, 3 feet wide and 1-foot height pile. And this is considered standard size.
The place where the pile is to be applied, in a rectangular shape, 10-feet length and 3-foot radius. Now the nectar extends the biological garbage in the water for 24 hours, laying its thin layer inside this fixed size. A layer of about five kg of wet organic waste takes place. Remember, after dumping in nectar water the weight of organic waste increases. Now, it spraying of fine dirt on it. Some what around two to three liters of fine soil is sprinkled at one time. (The quantity of organic waste should be one-fourth of the quantity of soil). Applying the layer of organic waste and repeating this process of fine soil perfusion on it until the heap height is one foot. Remember that after every five layers of organic waste, it should be well pressed.
Typically, 25 percent of organic wastes and 25 layers of soil are pressed on one by one until their total height becomes almost one foot. Many times the total number of these layers is also up to 70. Now after drying the dry grass in nectar water, it is covered with a 2-inch layer pile. This process of covering the heap is called the masking. The overlay made using dry grass is called dry overlap. Turn the stack every seven days, and sprinkle nectar water to maintain moisture. This way manure will be ready in 30 days.
Things to remember while planting the seeds,
A variety of 300 grams of seeds are planted on the heap. These seeds should be kept in nectar water for 8 hours before planting. By doing so the seeds sprout quickly. According to Ayurveda the following types of seeds should be laid,
Six types of hexas are as follows:
3. Bitter-fenugreek seeds, bitter gourd
4. Sour-jaggery, tomatoes
Cereals: maize, jowar, millet, wheat, rice etc.
Pulses: moong, urad, gram, tur, grapes etc.
Oil seeds: peanuts, sesame seeds, carbs, mustard etc.
Spices: Mirchi, Fenugreek, Cumin, Rye etc.
Vegetables: spinach, tomatoes, brinjal, guarfali, beans etc.
Culinary, cucumber, gourd, gourd, bitter gourd etc.
Tubers: Potato, Spinach, Turmeric, Ginger etc.
Linear: Bhindi, Cotton, Ambedi Flowers: Mistress, Mogra, Baramasi etc.
Medicinal: Tulsi, Shetavari, Adulsa etc.
Longevity: Subbool, Neem, Munaga, Karanj, Glyricidia etc.
After the germination of the seed, on the 21st day, you have to sprinkle 25 percent of the plant. Keep the stem same. From this, the elements found in soft leaves becomes zinc, phosphate, boron, and molybdenum. After the second 21 days or 42 days after the increased plants, sprout 25 percent. From this, the elements found in mature leaves become available to nitrogen, magnesium and potassium stacks.
You can buy a small amount of soil from Amazon if you are not able to make it by yourself.
