Agnihotra on ‘Gavisa’ Farm in Togo, West Africa

Marco Brutschin (Photo right with his friend Komla, a farmer in Togo, West Africa) shares his experience:

       "My farmer friend Komla from the village Yépévié, Kpalime in Togo,  told me, that after starting with Agnihotra, despite the current drought, it rained heavily on his farm, but not in the surrounding areas.
    It has also helped him greatly with his health.
I asked him to write something about his experiences with Agnihotra for the Homa Newsletter and here are excerpts from his letter:"

           "In this banana farm we have observed two stages: one without Homa Therapy applications and the other, post or with Homa Technology, when the correct and proper implementation of this Super Technology began.
       Before the implementation of Homa technology, certain nutritional practices for a sustainable growth of the banana cultivation, as recommended by experts, were applied.
One problem is, that this land has very diverse types of soils. Continue reading “Homa Farm Joselito, Loma Negra, Piura, Peru”
