Buttermilk spraying, spearheaded by farming expert Ms. Sreedevi, commenced with an explanation of the vital role of living organisms in soil health and leafy pest protection. Buttermilk, acting as a natural fertilizer, not only safeguards against fungal issues and diseases but also fosters healthy soil and plant growth due to its beneficial bacteria and enzymes.

Maintaining a farm log is an essential aspect of education and responsible farming. The farm log activities led by Ms. Sandhya at The Sri Ram Academy contribute to the students' understanding of plant care and farm management. By recording fertilizer applications, weather conditions, and plant growth stages, students learn the importance of keeping detailed records in farming. These records help track the progress of their plants.

Recording the items used in farming along with their market rates helps students develop market awareness. They learn about the value of different inputs, such as seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides, and how market prices can impact farm profitability.
