R & D

Nallakeerai Methodology

  • Nallakeerai cultivates Greens and Vegetables on raised beds, following Permaculture methods. This is a result of continuous R&D of more than 7 years.
  • The raised beds are nourished with a manure mix, containing farmyard manure, Ash and Saw dust, a unique combination that improves microbial growth.
  • The improved medium reduces manpower and hence the cost of continuous weeding.
  • The objective is to improve the soil health and fertility, which would then lend itself for growth of any kind of crops.
  • The crop rotation and planning are done meticulously based on the demands of the market.
