Thousands of women farmers work hard to keep their soil nutrient rich by keeping earthworms alive, adding leaf compost, & using cow dung, cow urine, and allowing butterfly, birds, beneficial insects to visit their cultivation field for better pollination and pest control. Azolla (a floating fern) is either incorporated into the soil before rice transplanting or grown as a dual crop along with rice as natural Nitrogen source. Dhaincha (Sesbania sp.) is another popular organic mean among farmers for green manuring, soil improvement and livestock feeding.
Farmers have been meticulously trained on Biodynamic Farming at Bhaikaka Krishi Kendra, Anand, Gujarat under complete guidance and support from National Dairy Development Board (NDDB). Many of them have become Jaibo Monitor later and trained co-members of each dairy coop in Sundarbans on organic and biodynamic farming methods.
Preparation and application of Cow Pat Pit (CPP), BD Compost, BD 500 series are now common practices among farmers.

Giant Honey Bees (Apis dorsata) collect pure golden nectar and pollen from flowers of mangrove plants like ‘Sundari’, ‘Garan’, ‘Khalisa’ trees deep inside the mangrove forests.
In April to June months after getting permission from State Forest Department hundreds of marginalized Sundarini Naturals cooperative honey collectors of Sundarban Islands locally known as ‘Mouli’ travel in search of beehives through muddy saltwater rivers, creeks and narrow channels that criss-cross the Sundarban forests, run the risks of meeting deadly Royal Bengal Tiger, venomous snakes and crocodiles and harvest organic wild Sundarban honey scientifically without hampering biodiversity of their sacred forests.
This honey is tested, filtered and pre-heated scientifically so that goodness of natural antioxidant properties due to its unique phenolic compounds & flavonoids, natural enzymes & pollens are retained and dirt, body parts of bee-larva, wax are removed.
