Bumper Harvest of Bell Pepper with Rocket Organic Manure (Case Study)
Bell Pepper Produced with Rocket Organic Manure
Jatinder Singh an Engineer turned Progressive farmer having a Poly house at Mohali had used Rocket Organic manure for farming red and Yellow capsicum (Bell Pepper). They have been using NPK fertiliser only in their previous harvest. This year they have used Rocket with NPK Fertiliser when they planted the sapling in their poly house. They also sprinkled Rocket when they did GODI( Shuffle the Soil). The Advantage they got was that the texture of their soil has improved and the fructification of the plants happened very fast.
Better Yield received by Farmers by using Organic Manure
Jatinder Singh Commented that this year they have got better yield and quality of the capsicum. They have got better rates in the market from previous years for their crop.
The Poly house of Jatinder singh was also visited by National Horticulture Mission (NHM) Mr. Balbir Singh and was impressed to see the quality and quantity of the Bell Peppers produced at the Poly-house. NHM has also been promoting organic manure to various vegetable growers.
