Shri Ram Anand Gaushala (SRAG), registered under Rajasthan Gaushala Act 1960, is in existence since 1928, at Ladnun, district. Nagaur, Rajasthan. Gvriksh in association with SRAG is contemplating of undertaking following activities at the site.

1. Growing of Jetropha trees along the periphery of the plot of land, and fodder giving trees in various patches
2. Starting a nursery and medicinal garden
3. Harvesting cow urine (Go Mutra) and setting up an Ayurvedic dispensary

Jatropha Curcas (Ratanjyot) is a very hardy plant, having following benefits;

  • It is used extensively for the hedge and boundary of the plot, without needing extra irrigation and fertilizers.

  • This is an evergreen variety of plant and acts as wind barrier, allowing growing of summer crops in the fields.

  • Seeds of Jetropha have high oil content (30% to 35%), which has a demand in lubricant, soap, pharmaceutical industry. Recent developments have found a very promising use of the oil for manufacture of Bio Diesel. It is proposed that the contour and long boundary of the site be effectively used for growing Jetropha.

Presently there is no reputed nursery in Ladnun area, which can provide saplings and seedlings of proven high quality stock. It is proposed that in conjunction with the Ministry of Forests and Environment, a nursery might be developed which would provide planting material of proven high quality for propagation in the neighboring areas. In the first instance, it is proposed that the facility would be used to prepare planting material for growing Jatropha, Acacia, Arjun, Neem, Pomegranate etc . A portion of the output will be used at the sight itself for the forestation drive undertaken. It is also proposed that a medicinal garden to produce medicinal plants for commercial application should be developed at site. Some of the plants will be directly used in production of Ayurvedic medicines, while the remaining would be used for commercial applications.

The cows at SRAG are fed only agricultural produce and the urine is of excellent medicinal quality. Presently it is used on only experimental basis and the results have been encouraging. It is proposed that SRAG will employ a qualified Ayurvedic Vaidya for preparation of medicines under a license from the Drug Controller.
