Jeevatu, the mixed culture of beneficial microbes, found in
Nepalese natural condition is developed by Nepalese Farming
Institute (NFI), Kathmandu, Nepal; devoting more than three
decades of time.
Jeevatu
Non Poisonous, Non Chemical
and Not Genetically Modified
Capable to manage organic waste
Solve the soil and plant problems in eco-friendly,
sustainable and cost effective ways.
More than half of the world’s
population already live in urban areas
The
United
Nations
estimates
By 2050, three quarters of the total
world population will be city dwellers
Waste management is becoming a
major and growing public health and
environmental concerns
Bio-degradable waste
Major Concerns
1. Emits foul odor
2. Delay in decomposition
Further pesticide residues loaded
agro-products which are about half
(70%) of the solid waste cause
environment pollution and adverse
effect to human health in the
developing countries.
Lack of
development and
dissemination of
eco-friendly,
sustainable, cost
effective
technologies
Lack of funding
for the ecofriendly,
sustainable
development

1.Developed to achieve
the eco-friendly,
sustainable farming
system
2. Used for the proper
management of Biodegradable waste
Jeevatu Based
Technology
3. Make high quality
compost
4. Applicable to
household level or large
scale projects of
composting municipal
city waste
Value Addition By Jeevatu
1. An application of the 5-10% solution of Jeevatu on
organic waste completely, instantly stops the off
smell and enhances fast decomposition process.
2. The compost prepared by the use of Jeevatu depicted
high nutrient content such as 4.025% Nitrogen, 1.125%
Phosphorus and 2.250 % Potash and microbes to
solubilize fixed plant nutrients and manage several soil
borne disease and insect pest problems.
Such high quality, value added compost is the good
source for revenue generation for solid waste
management and input for agriculture sector to
enhance the declined/stagnated crop productivity.

Excellent remedies for eco-friendly, sustainable, cost
effective solid waste management.
Supplying input to increase soil organic matter which
enhances crop productivity and sequesters carbon
dioxide.
If the soil organic matter of all cultivated land of the world
increased by one percent then the problems of global
warming can be completely managed.
Control of pest problems in agriculture sector.
Thus, use of Jeevatu for solid waste management and
eco-friendly, sustainable farming system are the best
ways to mitigate adverse effect of climate change.
