Objective: Deccan Development Society- Krishi Vigyan Kendra, Zaheerabad, Sangareddy District has celebrated Parthenium Awareness Week by preparing Compost out of Pathenium.
Pre Event Description :
As a part Parthenium awareness week we DDS-KVK have started a demo unit on use of Parthenium as compost material. This Parthenium plant is observed everywhere starting from crop land to wasteland, where it is the most competing plant species compared to other crops as well as other weeds. We prepared Parthenium compost demo unit at DDS-KVK to explain the farmers regarding conversion of problematic weed to a compost material. For the preparation of compost we have used green leaves and husk so that the N, P, K content in them is found to be higher when compared to Farm yard manure. For enriching this compost we added Trichoderma viridae for obtaining disease resistance. While weeding, farmers can remove the plants and they can prepare compost by using the uprooted Parthenium plants, cow dung and soil.
