Medicinal Plant Bio-diversity has changed !

Medicinal Plant Bio-diversity has changed !

Medicinal plants bio-diversity has changed a lot as well. The increased use of chemicals in the form of herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers have a definite role in the matter. Apart from this, common property resources in the form of common land, roads and water bodies have given way to farming. The local medicinal plants that used to thrive in those areas are facing threats. Grazing land have decreased steadily. The Govt.s have distributed the common lands to the poor people. The common land for village playground, disposal of carcasses have also vanished dramatically. The mango orchards, bamboo plantations have decreased due to ‘disturbance’ from other villagers. The local indigenous medicinal plants have drastically diminished due to these factors !

Weed Bio-diversity has changed !

Weed Bio-diversity has changed !

Types of weeds found before have changed a lot. Thanks to the application of chemical fertilizers ! Mostly urea is used to the full doses by the farmers. The Govt. officials try to motivate the farmers to apply more and more nitrogenous fertilizers to boost up production i a short time to feed the ever-increasing population.

Only Nitrogenous Fertilizers are Applied !

Only Nitrogenous Fertilizers are Applied !

Only Nitrogenous Fertilizers are Applied ! This is a great Fallacy ! Dwarf High Yielding Varieties are fed with Nitrogenous fertilizers only! And the name of that nitrogenous fertilizer is Urea !

The farmers pay less attention to apply organic manures. They also apply very less of Phosphate and Potassic fertilizers.

The result is that farmers don’t get desirable results. The production don’t increase after several years. And the pest attack are more. The cost of production becomes higher also. Less use of manures and phosphate and potassic fertilizers make the crop susceptible to pest attacks and expenditure on pesticides is increased manifold.

Chemical Dyes to Attract Customers !

Chemical Dyes to Attract Customers !

Chemical Dyes to Attract Customers ! Yes. Believe it or not. These chemicals are being used to attract the attention of a customer like you or me ! Third world country syndrome ! May be or may not be ! Don’t know. Next time you see attractive fruits and vegetables, have a second thought ! Are they artificially dyed ! Are they glowing ! Are they extra lustrous !

Use your common sense to judge ! You can use some plain techniques to Test. Like, you can use plain water to test whether the ‘dye’ is washed away or sticking for longer. Or, are they having some smells !

If they are vegetables, then you are luckier that you will boil before eating. But if those are Fruits , then you run the risk of eating those fruits raw and the chemicals will get entry to your stomach and blood. So ‘clean’ the fruits ‘properly’ before you eat !

The people or the business people ‘misusing’ these techniques may be unaware that they are committing crimes. Or they might be guided by their ‘profit’ motive.

We live in a world today which is primarily guided by the tenets of consumerism, thanks to the ‘ Media publicity ‘. So it is not unnatural that as human being will be unaffected by this phenomenon.

We need to ‘educate’ and ‘sensitize’ such people so that they can stay away from such activities. They should be reminded that such activities will affect themselves and their generation as well !

The regulatory bodies of the Govt.s have a role to play in this matter, needless to say.

It is very unfortunate that common people play the role of just onlookers, they don’t report to responsible authorities !

Use of Chemicals for Local Technologies !…

Use of Chemicals for Local Technologies !….

Farmers can not actually be blamed for this as they have not enough idea about the harmful effects of these chemicals on human and ecological health !

They are only ‘concerned’ about the ‘effects’ which are instant and constant ! Because they are poor

Use of Chemicals for Local Technologies !

Use of Chemicals for Local Technologies !

Farmers generally use local materials to make local indigenous technologies(ITKs). Nowadays chemicals are handy to the farmers. Because they use a lot of chemicals as pesticides, herbicide, hormones etc.

So the farmers may be tempted to use these chemicals to evolve indigenous technologies. And these technologies can be potentially harmful to all.

Some Company people who are not fully knowing the Agrochemical Science are helping the farmers secretly to do this !

Unlike before, the locally available materials have changed. The farmers now have a range of agrochemicals from Multi-National Companies(MNCs) in their houses for crop production and protection ! So they can now use these to “improvise” and “design” technologies which can be very harmful !

Rampant Hybridizations !

Rampant Hybridizations !

Rampant hybridization is the name of the game ! In the name of higher production we go for it. In the run for higher quantity we are compromising quality !

This is evident in the whole of scientific echelon ! You see scientists have evolved Tigon and Liger. But none of the two are nowhere in between their parents in terms of strength ! They are not even viable enough for the next generations ! So what is the need for this ! Just for academic, scientific pursuits ! Tiger and Lion are two separate species. This is not only highly unethical, but also very harmful for the ecology.

Don’t Indulge in Blame Game ! Do your bit what you can ! Play your part well. You have a role. You know what you can do. You know what good you can do for others and yourselves and the society around you and at large !

You might be a part of a network where things are not always good. Do your bit to motivate others to correct those activities and people.

Nowadays we see people using harmful materials to color, dye fruits and vegetables. The real educated people must take responsibility to correct these.

Don’t you see more number of people suffering from tumor and cancer ? Any doubt , any queries ? Please check with people around you.
