Cow manure contains the three main plant nutrients: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Although some natural variation occurs among manure from different cows, the amounts in fresh cow manure with bedding or litter are roughly 11 percent nitrogen, 4 percent phosphorus and 10 percent potassium, and the nutrients become available to plants at a moderate speed. Fresh cow manure with bedding or litter also has a sizable water content -- 86 percent; therefore, it is beneficial because it helps to keep soil evenly moist throughout the growing season.
Adding to cow manure's benefits is the fact that it is not difficult to find. Many dairy farmers offer free manure to people who haul it away. Even where payment is expected, it is generally no more than a small fee for enough to fill a truck's bed.
In times when going green is the only way to save the planet for future generations, it really makes sense to promote methods considered sustainable. And manure is the answer to environment-threatening chemical fertilizers. Ancient Indian literature informs us that farmers then mainly used manure comprising of nitrogen and phosphorous. To enhance the quality of manure, fine crushed fish bones were added for better yield. As agriculture become organized, and in the quest for better yield, chemical manure became the order of the day. Yields were surely better but for a very short period and slowly, the chemical manure-induced crops gave way to many detrimental side effects not only to the soil but also in the produce.
Pitambari’s Gomay manure provides all essentials i.e. – primary, secondary & tertiary nutrients in a balanced form, is more effective as it has more humus, is more nutritious, absorbs more water than the ordinary soil, increases water retention capacity, beneficial microbes to soil, hence increases & maintains soil fertility over the period, resulting in increased production and is also cost-effective compared to chemical fertilizers!
