Abstract
BACKGROUND: Agriculture is the principal source of livelihood for more than 40 % of the population of Tamilnadu .It was the key development in the rise of our human civilization (1)(2). In Agriculture, Cucumber is a widely-cultivated creeping vine plant in the Cucurbitaceae gourd family. Its shallow nature of roots requires an adequate amount of water throughout its life. In the agricultural field, water scarcity is a major environmental factor that affects the cultivation of crops as we all know Tamilnadu is also facing the same problem .To overcome this situation, Agro homoeopathy will greatly help by improving the plants development process in a better way(7). Charles Darwin also wrote that the potentised remedies had a good effect on plants (3). Agro homoeopathy makes the plants resistant to disease and pests by strengthening them from the inside out (15).In this study, Carbo vegetabilis and Silicea terra are the two out of hundreds of remedies that are being used on plants that they have great effects on development of plants in its all way (6)By regulating the transpiration process and controlling the condensation of the plant, we can achieve our aim. By reducing the evapotranspiration, the amount of water which would be needed for the cultivation will be reduced. By using the homoeopathic drugs Silicea terra(4) and Carbovegetabilis(5), we can reduce the amount of water usage in cultivation by improving the water retaining capacity of the plant and soil which can overcome the water insufficiency in agricultural fields. OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of Carbo veg (200C & 30C) and Silicea terra (200C & 30C) on water retaining capacity in Cucumis sativus L.and improve the growth and yield of the plant by using the minimal amount of water with the help of the homoeopathic drug and also to find out and compare the pesticidal action ofCarbo veg and silicea in cucumber plant. METHOD: 4 sets of plants were grown in which 2 belong to control sets and 2 sets were medicinally irrigated under proper schedule. Each and every progress of all the 4 sets of plants were noted to compare the efficacy of homoeopathic drugs on plants . RESULT: From this study, Silicea and Carboveg enhance the water retaining capacit
