Matka Khad is used to increase soil fertility and balance nutrient deficiency. It has been one of the most populat organic practiced during the SAF-BIN project and was used with a variety of crop types.


Take 50g jaggery, 2kg cow dung, 2l cow urine, 10l water and mix it properly in an earthen pot. Cover it tightly with a clean cotton cloth. The solution needs to be stirred 2 times/day (morning and evening hours) in clock wise direction to allow the ingrediants to mix evenly. The solution will be ready for use within 6-7 days.

It is advisable to apply 2ml Matka Khad/15l water and spray in every 10 - 15 days for best results.
