One of the important issues in Agriculture is removing the weeds. Weeds are of two types one is not harmful to the environment and other one is harmful to the environment.
Harmful weeds to the environment are Mesquite bean, Parthenium hysterophorus, Cynodon dactylon, Cyperus rotundus and other Perennial And Parasitic Weeds.
Today we can see Parthenium weeds everywhere in the city. Likewise all the land where agriculture activity is not happening or areas where it is very dry we can see Mesquite bean. One of the reason not doing agriculture continuously in the traditional way and the other reason is not removing when they are small.
All this new types of dangerous weeds are in our country only for the past few decades. We had weeds earlier to that, but it was not as dangerous when compared with the above weeds. Coming out of the traditional way is one of the reasons for this. Till such time we are following traditional way of agriculture and using natural fertilizers and pesticides we were having only environment friendly weeds. Once we started using Synthetic Fertilizers and Pesticides we started getting new types of weeds, new types of diseases and insects to the plants and even human being who are consuming the foods grown using Synthetic Fertilizers and Pesticides started getting new types of diseases and ill effect to the body.
One more issue is we are only worried about ourselves and not about the environment. For example in front of our house in the road in case there is a Parthenium weeds, we are not interested in removing the same. Likewise other Perennial and parasitic weeds in public properties such as pool, lake and river we are not interested and taking any effect in cleaning the same. Let someone do the job and we are less bothered.
Those days in Tamil Nadu in case someone calls a person and he is not turning up means they will ask what he is cutting something. Even today the same quote is used without knowing the actual meaning. The actual meaning is that people no need to turn up in case they are cutting / creating a pool or a lake. This much respect is given to a person who cuts or creates a lake or a pond. The ponds, lakes and water beds are created those days for the benefits of the future generation. Today instead of creating new water bodies we are destroying the existing water bodies created and kept safely for thousands of years. Further we are also throwing all the plastic and waste to the water bodies and directing all the sewage water pipes to the existing water bodies. Everyone thinks mine is only a small quantity nothing will happen. Tiny drops forms an Ocean, in the same way all the small quantities of every one spoiled, polluted and destroyed the water bodies. This generation may escape but the sufferers are going to be the future generations. Everyone today earn money for the next generations to live happily. Today wealth is considered only as money. Wealth is not only money; wealth is happiness, good environment, peaceful living, living without greed and strictly following discipline in the life. Today we are making our next generation to learn ways to only make more money, and there is no education towards discipline, morals of the life and live and let live concept. We are not able to teach them because we ourselves are out of that.
The entire Perennial and Parasitic Weeds can be removed in case everyone contributes a small to the society. Like that polluting the entire mother earth and water bodies can be stopped in case every one contributes a small portion to the society.
One such contribution is using only organic fertilizers and pesticides in agriculture and crop growing. We are having Organic Fertilizers called Panchagavya and Organic Pesticides / Insecticides / Fungicides called Agnihastra.
We request you to kindly use this and produce and do well to the environment and to our next generations.
