mango
cashew nut

"We came across Gurudev Shree Vasant Paranjpe between 1998 and 1999. From our discussions with Him, we realized that the cow is an important part in farming and this is the reason why the cow has been given an important place in our scriptures and culture. Another point we found out from Him was that for healthy farming the environment should be healthy and to achieve this a simple procedure of Agnihotra is advised. If we use the correct combination of cow and Agnihotra then we can achieve the same result in farming as our forefathers enjoyed."

mango

"In India, most of the mango varieties are alternate bearers, which means that they give fruits only every other year. The mango variety Dashehari is also an alternate bearer. Together with a group of 20 farmers I have initiated Homa Organic Farming in mangos in the Unnao district, which is famous for the cultivation of Dashehari variety."
