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.

    I am 63 years old and I am originally from Venezuela. Last year I started with the practice of Homa Therapy, which I came to know through Mr. Ricardo Mena and his wife Christa.
My experience is the following:
I have 20 egg laying hens.

After doing Agnihotra several times on the small farm, we got 12 chicks. Normally they do not hatch eggs and they did not do it in 3 years until I started practicing the Homa Fires.

  His wife confirms: We were told that these chickens genetically could not hatch, but in the wake of the Homa fires they started hatching eggs.

        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.
