Farming under unpredicted climate poses huge risk of losses due to diseases. Under climate change scenario totally new and previously unreported diseases are spreading rapidly in almost all parts of the world. Under such situation, treatments boosting the plant defense and weakening the pathogen would work much better than the disease control methods. Such treatments when coupled with preventive diagnosis and advice based on such diagnosis, add value in terms of further improving the efficacy and sustainability.
At Swasti Agro we believe that innovating both on product and service components is essential to make such disease prevention program successful and deliver the impact to the last mile.
We strive to build such model product-service offering combination of biology and technology. We envisage that such a working solution will be scalable to positively affect the life of 3 billion farmers at the bottom of the pyramid.
The chemical pesticides I used earlier would help control the disease after it had affected the plants but this product helps prevent the disease itself. This is great. I now get about 70 to 80% better output from my 1500 pomegranate trees.
“I am an organic farmer and am pretty informed about various products that we use. For example I make a solution of cow dung, cow urine, gur and chana atta and keep it for seven days. This helps maintain the health of not just the plant but also the soil. But then I came across Swasti Agro. I tried it out and have found the results pretty encouraging. I have five acres of land on which I grown two types of pumpkin, bitter gourd, pomegranate wheat and sugarcane. Swasti’s INA4 and Culture4 help keep diseases away from my crops. It increases the resistance of the plant. Moreover even during climate change the plant stays steady right from 30 degrees to 42 degrees, the heat does not affect the plants. Preemptive use of this vaccine works out 50% cheaper since it prevents crop damage.”
I have 3200 pomegranate trees and even have a store that sells pesticides. But ever since the Govt has banned chemical pesticides as they are more poisonous I have switched to this organic one. Not only is it safe for human consumption but it is also good for the plants. Earlier I used to get those diseased spots on the fruit but now I don’t see them at all.
