PRANIC AGRICULTURE IMPROVES DRUMSTICK (MORINGA OLIFERA L.) GERMINATION AND SEEDLING GROWTH

K. Nagendra Prasad and Srikanth N. Jois

Abstract

Recently, Pranic agriculture (PA) has gained much attention since plant characteristics were improved significantly by adopting PA technique. Pranic agriculture involves the projection of prana to seeds and plants to enhance their growth. Moringa olifera seeds were exposed to PA treatment and grown under greenhouse conditions and seedling growth was evaluated from 15-day-old seedlings. Non-pranic treated seeds were referred to as the control group. For Pranic group, the mean germination days, number of branches, dry shoot weight and seedling vigor index I and seedling vigor index II enhanced considerably and the results were significant (p<0.05) when compared to control. Thus, the PA technique helps in enhancing the growth of M. olifera seedlings. Further studies are needed to find out the difference in nutritional composition and sensory analysis. By practicing PA technique, farmers would be benefited to enhance their crop growth.
