Problem Statement:

It chemical insecticides and pesticides could harmful for nature as well to the other beneficial insects. Source: http://nif.org.in/innovatio_trap_for_worms_affecting_cardamom/110


The innovator developed a decoction from tulsi (basil) leaves for preventing insect attack, especially from green worms and thrips in Cardamom. ‘Kirshna tulsi’ leaves are crushed, without adding water in it. Then one pinch of mosquito killing powder is added and this mixture is then kept in a small vessel (metal vessel may be avoided). Thereafter these vessels are placed in different parts of the cardamom field. The vessel should be kept open. This reportedly kills all the insects affecting cardamom. This mixture can be used for three days
