For every 10 kg pearl millet (Pennisetum typhoides) seed, Rubabhai Rathod takes one kilogram worm killer (Aristolochia bracteata) plant and keeps the plant soaked in two litres water for some time. He filters this solution and sprinkles it on pearl millet seeds. The odour of the worm killer in the seed keeps away ""khapedi"" (grub) and secures the plant through the seedling stage. Thus ""khapedi"" infestaion in sprouting crop of millet and sesame (Sesamum indicum) can be prevented.
