A new homeopathic potency promotes growth and yield of rice: a field trial.
Mondal S, Sukul nee Chunari S, Sukul NC.
In a series of experiments conducted in an experimental garden and a small field
during the last seven years we have observed that certain plant growth retardants
promote growth of crops at ultra high dilutions. Potentized (2-chloroethyl) trimethyl
ammonium chloride (CCC) proved most effective in increasing photosynthesis and
plant growth. In homeopathy a substance, which produces morbid symptoms at high
doses on healthy individuals, ameliorates the disease in a patient showing similar
symptoms at ultra low doses. CCC 200cH was used in a field trial at the Rice
Research Station, Govt. of West Bengal, Chinsurah, Hooghly, W. B during the wet
season on two varieties of rice plants. Following Hahnemann’s principle CCC 200cH
was prepared and CCC 200cH was diluted with water 1:100 and applied by foliar
spray on rice plants 22 days after transplantation. A second treatment was given
after 15days. The control solution applied on an equal number of plots consisted of
ethanol 200cH. No fertilizers and pesticides were applied in the plots under
experiment. CCC 200cH significantly increased chlorophyll, protein and sugar in the
leaves of both varieties of rice tested. The drug also increased the panicle length,
and the percentage of fertile grains more than double as compared to the
control.CCC 200cH treated groups significantly produced more tillers/plant than the
control groups. However, plant height did not show any significant change between
the control and the treatment groups. The yield in rice grains were significantly
higher with CCC 200cH than with the control in both the varieties of rice. Treatment
withCCC 200cH resulted in earlier inflorence in both the varieties of rice than in the
control. It is concluded that CCC 200cH promoted growth and yield in rice varieties
tested under natural field condition.
