Flowers of mahuva and pods of golden shower are used to control premature flower shedding and thereby getting higher yields in finger millet and pigeon pea crops. A solution is made by pounding together 8 -10 pods of golden shower and 500 gm of dry or fresh mahuva flowers and adding water to it. The solution is then filtered and used for spraying on finger millet and pigeon pea crops at the time of flowering. This controls premature flower shedding in these crops and also pest control to some extent.
