Agronomist

During the Spring-Summer season in 2006 – 2007 at the Canchones Experimental Station, belonging to the Arturo Prat University of Iquique-Chile, an experiment was carried out with the cultivation of melon (Cucumis melo, cultivar Arava), under two systems of cultivation: Homa Agriculture and Conventional Agriculture (use of agrochemicals). In this sector, the records under the conventional production system indicate that this crop takes between 5 to 6 months to be ready for harvesting and marketing.

Organic Certification for ‘Satsang’ Homa Farm, Curacaví, Chile

Satsang is part of the Organization of Organic Producers of Curacaví
        On Friday, May 5th, Curacaví, OPOC’s Internal Control Officer, Sebastián Morales, visited the Satsang farm to verify on the ground that it meets the requirements of the Chilean regulations to be declared an organic farm. During the inspection, Sebastián Morales approved of the organic Homa cultivation techniques that are used in Satsang, a farm that last year was registered with OPOC in Chile.

       The following weekend, on Sunday, May 14th, members of the Forest Guard Network, led by Isidora Huici and Fabián Guerrero, visited the Satsang farm to harvest seeds of native Chilean trees, such as Boldo, Quillay and Peumo, to help reforesting the hills affected by forest fires in Chile last summer.
      At the time, the volunteers of the Network also took Agnihotra ash to mix with the seeds, helping their healthy and vigorous germination and growth.

Irma Castillo, Calama Valley, Antofagasta Region, Chile

       Mrs. Irma Castillo, a small farmer from the Calama Valley, Antofagasta Region, Chile, has been involved in organic farming programs since 2013. One year ago, she came to know about the Homa Farming Super-technology. And from that moment she started with the discipline of the Agnihotra Fire on her farm. Here she has an exclusive place to practice the fire, which is located next to the greenhouse. Everything produced in this place is for family consumption. She applies concepts of functional diversity, practices daily at sunrise and sunset the Agnihotra Fire and applies Homa bio-fertilizers, such as Agnihotra Ash solution, Agnihotra ash directly on the soil and sprays the Homa bio-fertilizer Gloria Biosol. With this, Mrs. Irma produces the necessary vegetables, herbs, etc. for her family and friends to whom she gives freely from her production.

Homa Farming in Curacavi, Chile

Ms. Karina Ohme from Curacavi, Chile tells her experience of the Amazing recovery of almond and fig trees with Homa Therapy
     In March 2013, we realized a long awaited dream: ‘Satsang,’ a beautiful farm with native forest, silence and harmony, located a few kilometers outside Santiago de Chile.
     We started immediately to perform the Homa Fires and we have seen a surprising recovery of the old fruit trees. René, (photo right picking almonds), our gardener, who lives and works on this plot since 19 years, was surprised to see the almonds loaded with fruits this summer. Just two years ago, his suggestion was to cut them, since they were full of downy mildew and partially moth-eaten, practically dry and without giving any almonds.

Mario Aguilar’s Story

avocado
lemon

“I have been practicing Agnihotra for twenty years together with my family and also the Om Tryambakam fire. Here are some of many experiences with Homa Therapy in agriculture:”

“My house has a patio area of fifteen meters and the land was so hard, that the pick or the hoe bounced off. In this patio I have a space of approximately three meter length where I now cultivate vegetables (sweet corn, beans, beets, broccoli, tomato, lettuce) using Agnihotra ash as a fertilizer. I put the ash in a cotton bag and let the hose with the water run through it. I also fumigate the plants with the Agnihotra ash water solution to avoid pests and diseases. I have one bed (1.5 sqm.) with parsley and one with cilantro (corriander). I treat them like you have to treat any other vegetables, but only fertilize them with Agnihotra ash and the production is so much, that I can share with my neighbours. Some of them also participate in Agnihotra and use the Agnihotra ash.”

“We have several trees, among them lemon, lúcuma, two custard apples, a fig tree, an olive tree and among them vegetable cultivations. I water them with Agnihotra ash and give each tree a little ash, so they do not need any other fertilization. For example the lúcuma tree is only two meters high, but I have to put logs under the branches, so heavy is the harvest. The lemon tree gives us lemons of the size of a tennis ball, the skin is thin and they are juicy and do not have seeds. The custard apple tree gives fruits of almost a kilo weight and of a size of a soccer ball. And the fig tree is incredible, if you eat one of them it is as if you had eaten lunch; they are almost of the size of an avocado and very juicy and sweet. All these things are benefits through the Agnihotra ash. Besides composting them with the ash I also powder them with the ash and practice continually Homa Therapy.”

“My friend, who has a lemon plantation told me that it is affected by the lice plague. I told him to spray Agnihotra ash water solution on them. After several months we meet again and he told me: The disinfectant you gave me against lice was very little and so I had to use some chemicals. The plants now are losing their leaves and are drying up. I told him, not to worry, that I have more Agnihotra ash to fumigate the trees. The next day we cut all the dry twigs and branches and fumigated with Agnihotra ash water solution, which I had prepared a few days ago for my own garden. Six or seven days after that the trees started to sprout again, it was as if the trees had never been sick, they had a special shine in their leaves and they had many flowers for future fruits, thanks to the Agnihotra ash water.”

“Another direct experience I had proves the efficacy of the Agnihotra ash for agricultural purposes. A friend had a lemon orchard of about 100sqm with one olive tree heavily attacked by a pest. We applied Agnihotra ash and the tree revived completely. We also put the ash on the surrounding trees to prevent the spreading of the pest. Once more the ash proved its power in healing and prevention.”

“Another very good experience was with an avocado plantation. They are very delicate, even a strong wind can break the branches and the tree is prone to contract any disease. One afternoon I passed by a friend and he showed me their orchard. I noticed the leaves yellowish. I explained him Agnihotra and the use of the ash, but he said he cannot risk anything, since he has made a huge investment on this land. So I proposed that he leave 4 lines of trees for me and my treatment and the other 40 or 50 were his. I said, that I would harvest more in those 4 lines, than him in the rest, in proportion to the land. So we did it. My wife, my friend and I did Agnihotra on three different spots, we also did a couple of hours Tryambakam daily beside treating the trees with ash powder, fumigating them with the ash solution and giving them ash fertilizer (Tryambakam ash). After a short time already we could see, that the avocado trees became the same shiny and healthy leaves as the plants inside our house. The plants treated with agro chemicals showed yellowish leaves and did not look well at all, so that he finally decided to go completely Homa. Well, we never have anymore a shortage of Avocados in our home, our friend keeps supplying us. Things like this can happen anywhere, where Agnihotra, the science of resonance, is used. The results are really optimal.”
