|Title:||Homoeopathy: A Superior Substitute of Genetic Engineering for Cotton Cultivation|
|Authors:||Gangar, H U|
|Abstract:||India is an agriculture based country. It is for this reason its progress depends on agriculture to a greater extent. Cotton is a major agricultural cash crop. The per hectare production, of cotton in India is very low as compared to other countries. Here the cultivation of cotton depends on natural factors such as soil, rainfall, climate and temperature etc. Cotton crop is damaged by viral diseases and infestation of insects that associates among its plants. To have protected them from this loss genetic engineering is being used. B.T. cotton is such an example. However, as a result of experience it has been found that it is not a complete, the best and simple measure to abolish crop production related losses. Therefore, the need to trace better substitute of genetic engineering was realized. As is well known that Dr Samuel Hahnemann famous German doctor conducted intensive research concerning the effect of homoeopathic medicines on human body. Later on these medicines were utilized on animals as well. But no research work was carried out in the world to find out the effects of these medicines on plants. Therefore, to test the effect of homoeopathic medicines on plants Dr Gangar conducted some preliminary experiments in Central Institute of Research on Cotton Technology. Having obtained encouraging results he continued his research work in this direction.|
