A Study of Biochemical Constituents of Panchakavya

V. Ramya [3] | S. Karpagam [7]

Abstract: A study of Biochemical constituents of panchakavya V. Ramya1 and S. Karpagam2 1. Research scholar, Department of Botany, Queen Marys College, Chennai 4.2. Associate Professor and Head of Botany Queen Marys College, Chennai 4 Environmental and human health problems related to the use of synthetic pesticides have created an increasing pressure against their use. Organic fertilizers are sustainable, renewable bio degradable and environment friendly. Panchakavya is combination of cows urine, milk, ghee, curd and dung. Panchakavya Therapy or Chikitsa as an alternative prophylactic or therapeutic approach for livestock and poultry health along with human health and as devotion in the services of the Holy Cow which is central to the bio-chain. The analytical techniques like HPTLC, GC-MS and AAS were studied. Once biochemical constituents are known improvement could be made in natural products. They help to standardize and improve the quality of natural products. The present study reveal the spectral data of HPTLC and is very much useful for its quality improvement of panchakavya. The aim of this work was to investigate and characterize the bioactive chemical constituents by using GC-MS method. Panchakavya contain twenty peaks which indicate the presence of twenty biochemical compounds. The metals Mg, zinc, Cadmium, Cr, lead, Fe, and Cu were analyzed by using Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS) in Panchakavya. The present study focused on panchakavya is to improve its quality as an organic fertilizer.
