Abstract:
An experiment was conducted on Jeevamrutham to study the effect of cow dung collected from different locations and different days after preparation on the microbial population. The changes in physico-chemical and chemical characteristics during the storage period were also analyzed. Ten cows were selected from 9 different districts of Telangana for the preparation of Jeevamrutham. Jeevamrutham was prepared and characterized for microbial population (total bacteria, total fungi, actinomycetes) at different days of preparation. The maximum microbial population was recorded in between 8th to 12th day of preparation of Jeevamrutham and among the breeds Gir breed selected from IFS unit, PJTSAU and Jersey breed from Mahbubnagar recorded higher population of bacteria, whereas in case of total fungi, actinomycetes, Jeevamrutham obtained from Jersey and Lal khandhari selected from Adilabad recorded higher population at all the stages as compare to other cows. pH and EC of Jeevamrutham was increased significantly and OC, total N, total P, total K, Total S and total micronutrients (Zn, Cu and Mn) were decreased due the consumption by micro-organisms for their growth and development.
