The Biodynamic system of farming being adopted at this farm was started by Dr.Rudolph Steiner, an Austrian Bio chemist in Geramany in 1924.This system comprises utilization of natural resources. A set of eight herbal and mineral preparations are used in homeopathic doses to enliven the soil and the surrounding environment.
The farm uses various wild growing plants like lantenna, bhang, congress grass etc for making liquid manures and compost after adding biodynamic preparations in homeopathic doses. CPP, cow pat pit is made from the cow dung of the farm cows. CPP is used for a stem paste and for spraying on the crops. Preparations 500 and 501 are made by introducing cow dung and silica in cow horns which are buried underground and taken out in March and September. Cow urine is used as a spray to combat pests, and as a plant nutrient. Sprays based on bhang, garlic, ginger etc are used to control pests on the farm.
Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture goes beyond the most rigorous existing standards for pure, organic food. By using the ancient Vedic Agricultural technologies recently revived by Maharishi, farmers rise to higher consciousness and live life in harmony with all the Laws of Nature.
The sounds of the Veda and Vedic Literature are used to enliven the inner intelligence of the plants to produce food bursting with the vitality of Nature’s intelligence, and at the same time create a healthy environment for the farmer to cultivate an abundance of pure, nourishing food.
‘We will establish a Vedic Agriculture University in order to introduce the knowledge of Natural Law that has been scientifically researched in many universities and research institutions in different parts of the world, and we will also introduce the knowledge of the nutritious and life-giving value of naturally grown foods.
‘The whole process of the plant sprouting from the seed and growing into leaves, flowers, and fruits, has been found to gain nourishment from soothing music and melodies; from enhanced seasonal influences of Sun, Moon, planets, and stars, and from increased qualities of harmony and pleasantness in the environment. This is now quite well established through worldwide scientific research. To produce this effect we will have the Vedic Experts from India whose traditional melodies and Vedic Recitations are most effective.‘ —Maharishi Maharishi’s
