Things grow better with Coke

Instead of paying hefty fees to international chemical companies for patented pesticides, Indian Farnmers are reportedly spraying their cotton and chilli fields with Coca-Cola.

One litre of highly concentrated Avant, Tracer and Nuvocron, three popular Indian pesticides, costs around 10,000 rupees (£120), but one-and-a-half litres of locally made Coca-Cola is 30 rupees. To spray an acre would be a mere 270 rupees.

270 Rupees = £2.5...Now go figure !!!
