National Centre of Organic Farming (NCOF) has developed a waste decomposer culture which is used for quick composting from organic waste, soil health improvement and as plant protection agent. It is a consortium of micro organism extracted from desi cow dung.
The waste decomposer is sold in a bottle of 30 gms costing Rs. 20/- per bottle directly through NCOF and Regional Organic Farming Centres (RCOF) to farmers. The waste decomposer is also validated by ICAR. A single bottle decomposes bio-waste of more than 10000 metric tons just in 30 days.
Farmers could prepare the waste decomposer solution again and again from the above formed solution. For this, 20 liter of waste decomposer solution is added to a drum with 2 kg of jaggery and 20 liter water is added. Farmers can prepare continuously this solution from this waste decomposer for lifetime.
Spray the preparation on the standing crop for 4 times at 10 days interval
Mix the preparation in water required for 1 acre and use it for drip irrigation.
Spray the preparation on the post-harvest stalks of crop plants of 1 acre land and leave it for decomposition.
For regular disease control, spray the preparation on standing crop once in a month.

Waste decomposer application 1000 liter per acre changes biological and physical properties of all type of soil (acidic, and alkaline) within 21 days of application and it helps to generate earthworm population in the soil upto 4 lakh in 1 acre land in just six months.
