Synthesis of Plant Growth Promoter (Natural Liquid Fertilizers) from Medicinal Plant By Fermentation Method

Authors(4) :-Jagtap S. M., Satkar M. S., Gundal R. S., Bhor G. L.

A chemical based plant growth promoter normally affect particular organ or function of plant, whereas a fermented product show effect on the total plant system helping it to achieve better results as compared to a chemical plant growth promoter and reduce the side effects on the soil or the overall plant growth system. Plant growth promoters could be harmful for human health if not applied in adequate doses and convenient time on plants. In present investigation leaves of various medicinal plant e.g. Ricinus communis (Caster), Annona squamosa (Custard apple), Tinospora cordifolia (Gulvel), Azadirachta indica (Neem Tree), Nicotiana tobacum (Tobacco) taken in equal proportion and fermented for one month in cow urine (Gomutra). Filtered it and filtrate was taken as end product. Different concentrations (5, 10, 30 and 50 ┬Ál/ml) of fermented product were applied to Mung (Vigna radiata) seed germination. Growth of seeding was compared with control. Result showing that lower concentration increase seed germination and higher concentration decrease seed germination than control (Without treatment). We can conclude that this product can be use as growth promoter at low concentration at germination level.
