Pun Najab’s garden development department launches ‘seed ball’ drive

The PJAB Department of Agriculture is responsible for distributing at least 2.50,000 fruit balls throughout the country during the rainy season to help people stay healthy and eat.

The purpose of the driver is to ensure that the authorities have enough fruit for the future and that seasonal fruits — as often suggested by doctors — to build immunity – in quantities and at affordable prices for all.

Officials say at least 12 varieties of fruit – mango, jam, guava, mulberry, fennel, caroteno, anola, lasura, berry, bael, dehen and cathars – can be grown in the provincial and horticultural department during the rainy season. He made the seed balls of all the fruits.

Sharing more details, officials said seed balls are very easy to use and that only half of the ball is buried in the ground when it is already soft during the rainy season. .

The so-called earth balls contain the seeds of various plants mixed with clay, which are prepared using humus or fertilizer and stored in a microbial injection, using common and local ingredients.

Soil is used to soften the seed ball with the top and bottom seed manure, and then dried fruit plants are loaded.

“We have set up about 350 awareness camps across the country before launching this pilot project to make people aware of the importance of fruits, especially those with low immunity during the CVD epidemic,” he said. Gardening, Pun Najab. She added that all of these fruits, which distribute seeds, have great nutritional value. If we grow our fields around the state today and there are open spaces, then there will be no shortage of seasonal fruits tomorrow.

Emphasizing the difference between seed balls and seeds, he said that when seeds are sown, sometimes there is a fear that they will always sprout when birds or animals pick them up or destroy them. However, with soccer technology, the seeds are more environmentally friendly and the desired yield can be achieved, so the yield is higher and the results are better. We are distributing leaflets with details about the farming method. These leaflets also teach people how to make their own soccer balls in the future. ”

The period from mid-July to early August is ideal for growing seasonal fruit trees and shrubs.

We give these soccer balls to anyone who asks us to, as well as to some non-governmental organizations involved in plant extraction. Environmentalist Baba Balbir Singh Chechewal, who himself has started growing various tree seedlings, has been involved in the distribution of these seed balls for free. ”

Many schoolchildren have also shown interest and have been given some seed balls to plant and own and care for as they grow.

He said a modified part of the ground is mixed with half a farm of manure and cocoa trails. Then a fine mixture is prepared with the help of water and dough is made, which is rolled into balls. Once the soil balls are ready, a hole is made in the middle, and the ball is re-recorded to help at least two or three fruit trees enter and bind the seeds and mixture properly. The seed ball size can range from 10 mm to 80 mm, depending on the size of the seed. The seeds are left to dry in the shade for at least 24-48 hours before being planted.

According to Vipsh Garg, an official with the Department of Fruit and Vegetation, doctors have determined that getting at least one fruit a day is essential for a strong immune system. He added that the department is educating schools on the existence of fruit-bearing plants and the importance of avoiding diseases by eating seasonal fruits.
