kitchen item works as good NPK Fertilizer
Friends, when we grow any plant either for the gardening purpose or for getting any benefits like fruits and vegetables then it must be required to provide all types of required NPK nutrients and all other micronutrients to that plant in the form of Fertilizers so that it can produce flowers, fruits and vegetables as per that plant’s growing cycle and season.

And for arranging all these NPK nutrient and other micronutrient based fertilizers we generally move out of our home. But do you know that there is a secret place in your home from where we can arrange all these NPK and other micronutrients that we required to grow a plant.

So here we are going to explain about one of the best sources of NPK and other micronutrient that is almost always available inside your kitchen. And this kitchen item name is Gram Flour. Gram Flour is the most common item which almost available in each home because we generally used to make it for making our food.

In this article we will explain the following details of gram flour which is required to know for using it as a plant fertilizer

What is gram flour and how it is made

Types of Nutrients and minerals that generally contain in gram flour
How we can convert it into a useful NPK fertilizer with all other nutrients
And how to this NPK fertilizer for plants

So let’s start with the introduction of gram flour

Gram flour is a most common kitchen item that is known from varies names in different countries like
It is commonly known as Besan in india, In USA and other countries it is also known as chickpeas peas flour and there may be some more names also. Most commonly gram flour made up with dry chickpeas by fine grinding process. When we grind dry chickpeas then it convert into fine powder that is called gram flour, Besan or Chickpeas flour.

Types of Nutrients and minerals that generally contain in gram flour

If we check gram flour nutrient value then we will found that this is good source of many Nutrients or Minerals which a plant also need for its proper growth.

Calcium (Ca) which is help a plant to build and hold its cell of walls and if there is some calcium deficiency in a plant then new leaves do not get its proper shape.

Copper (Cu) which is required to maintain the respiration process of a plant and it also help to develop the metabolism for proper growth.

Iron (Fe) which helps a plant to generate energy for photosynthesis process and activation of enzymes for proper growth.

Magnesium (Mg) which help a plant in the production of chlorophyll by which a plants leave color appear green and shiny.

Manganese (Mn) helps a plant for maintaining various necessary functions like photosynthesis and also in the development of pollen tube.

Phosphorous (P) helps a plant to formation of strong deep roots by which a plant can become stable and stable for growing towards up side. It also helps a plant to build their flowers and fruits.

Potassium (K) helps a plant to develop its immune system and make its stem stronger. It also helps a plant to build its flowers and fruits in optimum size.

Zinc (Zn) also helps a plant in proper photosynthesis process and production of chlorophyll.

How to convert Gram flour into useful NPK fertilizer

All above minerals and nutrients are playing a wide role for developing a plant in proper way if we can able to convert them into a useful plant fertilizer.
But all these nutrients and minerals are available in gram flour into complex substances that a plant cannot uptake directly so for converting all these nutrients from complex substances to simple substances we need to perform a decomposition process and convert it into a plant food.
And if we want to convert one Kg of gram flour into plant food then here we are explain the right process

For converting 1 kg Gram flour into a good NPK fertilizer we need to use following items:-

     One Bowl

    One KG Gram Flour for making npk fertilizer

    One KG organic Compost or vermicompost or cow dung compost whatever is available for increase the microorganism activity for decomposition process.

     Small quantity of molasses or jiggery for boosting the composting process

Steps for Making NPK fertilizer with Gram Flour

First of all pour these all these items into a bowl one by one and fill it with one litter of clean water.

Now mix these all items into each other properly and make sure that all lumps would remove completely.

Now after the mixing process, we will cover this mixture with clean cotton cloth and keep under a shady area at least for 48 hours.

And within the 48 hours, compost microbes will do their job and decompose all gram flour and other ingredient properly. After the decomposition process all nutrients which are available in gram flour will convert in simple form that a plant can uptake easily for its proper growth.
Now after the decomposition process our liquid NPK fertilizer is ready to use. And we can store it in an air tight container.

How to use this NPK fertilizer in plants

For using this NPK liquid fertilizer, first of all we will take its required amount into a container or bucket and now we need to mix the clean water into it which quantity must be ten times more than pure fertilizer.

In other words, for using this liquid fertilizer we should always mix its required quantity with clean water in the proposition of 1:10 means we should take one part of this Liquid NPK fertilizer and 10 part of clean water.
And after proper mixing we should pour it directly in our plant’s soil.

Using frequency
We can use it once / week for better result and our plant will get all required nutrient for their growth.

So friends this was the details by which we can convert the gram flour into an effective NPK fertilizer with all other micro nutrients. I hope this information will help you and for any further query you can direct write us in comment box and we will try to answer you within 24 hours.
