    Abstract

    The Ernakulam Krishi Vigyan Kendra (KVK) of the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) has developed a soil-less mix that can be used as an alternative to soil in farming. The mix is specifically slated to benefit farmers and gardeners who are facing a scarcity of good quality soil. It can be purchased from the institute. The mix is made of composted press mud, a by-product from sugar mills along with coir pith, powdered cow dung, neem cake and other biocontrol agents.“The soil-less mix will be a stimulus to backyard farming in the city where availability of quality soil is a concern,” said Dr Shinoj Subramannian, Head of the KVK.
