Application Guidelines for Astha PF seed and Soil Treatment:

Astha PF is your partner in fostering healthy, disease-resistant soil for your crops. To ensure effective seed and soil treatment, follow these step-by-step guidelines:

Seed Treatment:

Gather Your Supplies:

Astha PF

Seeds for planting

Prepare the Solution:

For every 1 kg of seeds, mix approximately 10-15 grams of Astha PF.

Thoroughly coat the seeds with Astha PF, ensuring an even distribution.

Drying Period:

Allow the treated seeds to air dry in a cool, shaded area. This prevents clumping and ensures that the beneficial microbes adhere to the seeds.


Once the seeds are dry, they are ready for planting. Follow your regular planting procedure, placing the treated seeds in the soil at the appropriate depth and spacing.

Soil Treatment:

  1. Gather the Ingredients:

– 1 kg of Astha PF

– 50 kg of Astha Vermicompost or high-quality compost

– 100 kg of normal soil

  1. Mixing Process:

– In a clean container or mixing area, combine 1 kg of Astha PF, 50 kg of Astha Vermicompost or compost, and 100 kg of normal soil.

– Thoroughly blend the components to create a uniform mixture. Ensure the distribution is even for consistent results.

  1. Shading for Activation:

– Transfer the blended mixture to a shaded area, away from direct sunlight.

– Allow the mixture to rest in the shade for 2-3 days. This time allows the beneficial microorganisms in Astha PF to multiply and establish a strong presence.

  1. Application to Land:

– After the activation period, your enriched mixture is ready for application.

– Prior to planting, spread the mixture evenly over one bigha of land (approximately 0.33 acres). Ensure uniform coverage to maximize the benefits.

  1. Incorporation:

– Gently incorporate the mixture into the topsoil using a rake or plow. This helps integrate the enriched mixture with the existing soil, enhancing its effectiveness.

  1. Planting:

– Now, your treated soil is prepared for planting. Follow your regular planting process, sowing seeds or transplanting seedlings as needed.

  1. Watering:

– After planting, water the area adequately to ensure proper settling of the treated soil and to promote microbial activity.

  1. Maintenance:

– As your crops grow, monitor their health and observe the positive effects of Astha PF’s soil treatment.

– Continue with your usual care routine, which may include watering, fertilization, and pest management.


– It’s recommended to wear gloves and take necessary precautions while handling the mixture.

– Avoid excessive sunlight during the activation period to preserve the viability of beneficial microorganisms.

– Adjust the quantities based on your land size, considering the given proportions as a guideline.

By following these application rules, you’re paving the way for robust plant growth and enhanced disease resistance, thanks to the potent benefits of Astha PF’s soil treatment approach.

Handling Procedure:

  1. Do not mix Astha PF with chemical fertilizer/pesticides and fungicides, apply at least 7 days after application of chemical fertilizer/pesticides/fungicides.
  2. Before spray the container should be washed carefully.
  3. The spray should be done late in the afternoon to avoid sunlight.
  4. Once open use the whole pack immediately and use a pack within its validity period.
