Hyderabad: Farmers in Guntur district are using fermented cow urine mixed with neem leaves extract as organic pesticide.

The Gir breed of cows from Gujarat is preferred for this purpose, as it is believed that its milk and urine have more medicinal and insecticidal properties respectively.

A. Sanjeeva Reddy of Nutakki in Mangalgiri mandal in Guntur district said, “I have bought Gir cows from Gujarat. One cow can cover at least 25 acres of land.”
