Chhattisgarh has become the first state in the country to purchase cow urine. On the occasion of Hareli Lihar, which is celebrated in the state on 28 July, the purchase of cow urine started in the state. Along with this, 2306 liters of cow urine was purchased from 63 villages of the state on the very first day. Maximum 304 liters of cow urine was bought from Kabirdham district.

The sale of cow urine in the state was also started by Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel, who sold five rupees of milk at the rate of four rupees per liter to a women’s group and immediately deposited the amount in the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund. The purchase of cow urine in the state is a part of the Godhan Nyay Yojana, a flagship scheme of the Government of Chhattisgarh.

Organic pesticides will be made from cow urine

Now the question comes that what is the government’s plan by purchasing cow urine. Regarding this scheme, the Chief Minister had already said that the government would also purchase cow urine from farmers with the aim of strengthening the rural economy of the state and promoting organic farming in the state. At the same time, sources related to the government say that the purchased cow urine will be used to make bio-pesticides apart from making Jeevamrut. Which will act as a booster to increase the yield of the crop. Because the government converts the cow dung that has been bought for the last two years into vermi compost and sells it back to the farmers. This is the plan of the government, not with cow urine.

There will be a reduction in the use of chemical pesticides

The state government claims that fertilizers and organic pesticides made from cow urine will gradually reduce the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Through this, healthy and sustainable farming will be promoted, as well as efforts are being made towards making it more profitable by reducing the input cost in agriculture. At present, the government buys cow dung from the villages of Chhattisgarh at the rate of Rs 2 per kg and sells vermicompost at the rate of Rs 10 per kg. However, the price of organic pesticide made from cow urine has not been fixed yet.
