Note - Waste decomposer or fresh water can also be used if there is no cow urine. But the best cow is the cow.











Wilt disease

In this disease caused by gourd plants, the plant withers and dries. The leaves of the plant become yellow. The withering area shrinks and dries. In this disease, the inner part of the root of the plant dries up first, due to which the growth of the plant stops. And the fruit stops flowering.
