    Do we have an alternative for neem coated urea in the form of karanja Oil coated urea? Nitrogen is the most critical as well as significant component of Agricultural production. Currently, most of these nitrogen is being supplied by Urea in paramount forms of cultivation. However, the challenge for most of the farmers as well as the agronomist, is that the nitrogen within the urea is getting hydrolyzed rapidly when it comes in contact with soil. And these hydrolysis bring out various forms of Nitrogen. Among these forms, some evaporates and some escapes the soil and the rest loses nitrogen use efficiency. This development usually work against the soil as well as the crops. In this way, normally 50% of the applied nitrogen fertilizer is getting wasted and in turn is adversely impacting the overall nature of the soil. Moreover, the accumulated unusable nitrogen rescinds the underground water quality. To overcome this challenge, agriculturists have introduced the usage of costly chemicals (Ammonium thiosulphate, Dicyandiamide & Nitrapyrin etc) which aids in controlling the nitrification of the soil. However, the addition of these chemicals further violates the basic characteristics of the soil. To circumvent this phenomenon, lately researchers have dotted on neem oil or neem cake as the natural ingredient that can be coated to prevent nitrification. The result of this large scale use have been phenomenal. The yield has increased dramatically and also the soil quality in general. The neem oil coat have largely prevented the nitrification of soil. Based on the extensive studies and its subsequent report, Government have proposed the use of neem coated urea for large scale agricultural production. This recent development did create positive impact in the organic produce market. It has led to ripples in neem oil market wherein, neem oil market have reached a situation of high demand and low supply. Neem oil being the natural product, the production can’t be increased substantially in a short span of time. Therefor, in order to tide over this challenge, farmers have come up with the usage of less demand and high supply oil called Karanja (Pongamia Glabra) as an alternative to neem oil in coating urea. Since, Karanja oil contains both the insecticidal property as well as hydrolysing nature similar to that of neem; Karanja oil is being flaunted as a natural alternative for neem oil. Karanja is also called as Millettia pinnata, is a species of tree in the pea family, Fabaceae, native in tropical and temperate Asia including parts of Indian subcontinent, China, Japan, Malaysis, Australia and Pacific Islands. It is often known by the synonym Pongamia pinnata as it was moved to the genus Millettia only recently. Common names include Indian beech, Pongamoiltree, karanj (Hindi), honge (ಹೊಂಗೆ in Kannada), pungai (புங்கை in Tamil), kānuga (కానుగ in Telugu), karach (করচ গাছ in Bengali), naktamāla (नक्तमाल in Sanskrit). Considering the high price for Neem oil and low price of Karanja oil, we can consider Karanja Oil as an alternative for coating urea and as well as an insect repellent in organic farming.

    Are we consuming the food that is free from chemicals and pesticides? For most of us, it could be emphatic NO! Following information from EWG's website would certainly confirm our daily pesticide intake.... 1)Among all the apple samples tested, 99% found to be positive for at least one pesticide residue. 2) At least one pesticide residue was found in 98 percent of peaches tested 3) Similarly, at least one pesticide found in 97 percent of nectarines tested 4) A single sample of strawberry showed mind boggling 13 different pesticides. 5) A single sample of grape contained 15 different pesticides 6) Celery ranked 6th among the list of dirty vegetables. 7)Spinach dropped to seventh this year, from sixth last year's list of dirty vegetables. 8) A sample of single sweet bell pepper contained 15 different pesticides 9) This year cucumber is maintaining its ninth rank in Dirty vegetables list. 10)Samples of cherry tomatoes showed 13 different pesticides. How to avoid these pesticides from entering our blood system? We should buy smart organic produce whenever we can. And It's always a good idea to shop from registered organic producers market or purchase directly from organic producers. Pest control using chemical pesticides on growing plants have caused irreparable damage on the human race... A study by Cynthia Curl of the University of Washington found that "people who use organic produces for their daily found lesser organo phosphates ( a poison) in their blood system as compared to non organic food consumers.
