Wish you happy children day and let us ensure quality education to all children.


The reinforced polythene sheets given to us after the last floods in the year 2015, went a long way in saving us from the heavy rains this week. Not even a drop of water entered in to our hut , as the hut was covered both in the side walls and the roof. But for this protection, our 50 sqft home would have been inundated in waters leaving us in the street. Hence I thank the Global Giving and the SPPD for this great help. Thank you.

Proud to be a FARMER


Joy of having created asset for the women themselves.

Please explain about the techniques of preparing the Ensilage called “Pickle Grass”and its types. “As the famous say goes only in times of oppressive heat the prominence of shade would be felt’’. We have experienced this in our own lives. We have imparted training on the techniques of preparing the pickle grass in several villages belonging to the district of Trichirappalli. A good number of farmers have got benefited by this initiative. The former Dean of the Trichy College of Agriculture and a senior scientist Mr. Rajakannu taught these techniques through a demonstration. And I am so happy to share the same with you. Keep the harvested hi breed grass K -3 and K4 released by the Tamilnadu Agricultural University in open air in the same field where it was harvested for about two hours. After this tie the grass in to small bundles. Dig a deep pit ,spread plastic sheet inside the pit and stack the bundles of grass uniformly. Stamp on the bundles firmly to remove the air in them. Thereafter, spray the raw(crystal) salt in the ratio of 4 kiograms per ton of grass. On this spray the solution containing 10 litres of water and 2 Kilos of jiggery( unrefined sugar).The quantity of the preservative materials of salt and the country sugar (jaggery) solution should vary according to the quantum of the grass to be preserved. Once the first layer of grass is done with, stack the next layer of bundles and remove the air content in them by stamping on the grass and spray the salt and the jaggery solution. You can stack the grass bundles in layers to the brim of the pit. Thereafter spread plastic sheet on the same and pile up soil on it in the shape of pyramid. This is to prevent the rain water from seeping in to the pit. There should also be no penetration of water or air in to the pit. The pit should remain closed for a minimum of three months. After this period we can remove the heap of soil and the plastic sheet and feed the cattle with this ensilage in adequate quantities. Everyday after taking out the required quantities of ensilage, the rest should be kept covered with the plastic sheet. Soil need not be heaped on the same. During the rainy season 20 days, before the cultivation of K3 and the K4 grass, the sowing of maize, for fodder should be done in a separate piece of land with an area 15cents. (Then only simultaneous harvesting can be done for the use of preparation of the ensilage). If ¾ ton of organic manure is sprayed before sowing of 8 kilos of seeds, on the 60th day harvesting can be done. Cultivating the crop just once in a year will be sufficient during the lean seasons. Similarly, the cultivation of either K3 or K4 can be done in an area of just 5 cent. And if these two crops are harvested and processed the way it is mentioned above it will fulfil the needs of fodder for a set of cattle and goats consisting of a cow and a herd of five goats. Every cow should be fed with 20 Kilos and a goat with 3 kilos of green fodder every day. These fodder grass varieties shall grow well from the month of July to February. During this period of eight months there would be no scarcity for green fodder. Bt the period of March to June will be very dry and scarcity of green fodder will be very high. And during this time the ensilage mentioned above will come in handy to fulfil the needs of green fodder. Further it should be noted that only from the grass varieties of millet, and maize the ensilage can be prepared and not from some common grass varieties. Therefore this is the appropriate time for processing of ensilage, make use of the same. For contact. Mobile No 98424 81968.
