Jeevamruth and Beejamruth have their good role in vegetable foods in organic farming. Beejamruth and Jeevamruth are the fermented products which are used as plant growth enhancing substances prepared by the materials available with the farmers. They are the rich sources of beneficial microbial flora which supports, stimulates the plant growth and helps in getting better vegetative growth and also good quality yield. A survey was made to gather informations on traditional formulations of Jeevamruth among organic farmers and the formulation followed by farmers was used to prepare Jeevamruth in the lab. The prepared formulation was analysed in the GCMS to characterize the traditional formulations. The results revealed that various beneficial compounds were present in the formulations. The compounds present in Beejamruth Mevastatin and Gitoxigenin act as bioconversion repellents. Macrocyclon and 8-heptadecene dioicacid are antimicrobial and used in cryopreservation. Erioflorin and nagilactone A are plant growth regulators. Trimegestone, RofeCoxib are antibiotic in nature. Clupanodonic acid is helpful in plant defense mechanism. Hence, Beejamruth is a valid and effective alternative fertilizer for the production of safe and good quality food produces which could cater the needs of the modern Indian requirements.
