Farmer got a herb for diabetic patients


Tanahu: A farmer in Tanahu district has grown a herb stevia locally called gulio pat ( sweet leaves), which is useful for patients of diabetes.

 

KB Gurung, 73, of Benipatan in Byas Municipality-3 has started Stevia farming commercially in one ropani of land.

 

Gurung has started the herb farming by buying it at Rs. 22,000 per kg from Mumbai. Patients of diabetes can use the herb as substitute for sugar.

 

According to Gurung, the herb is three folds sweeter than sugar and patients of diabetes can use the herb in any food items such as milk, tea and sweets, among others.

 

He further said he had started the herb farming three years ago. It is being sold at Rs. 500 to Rs 1,000 per kg in the market.

 

As there is no equipment for processing it commercially, we have been using the herb as a powder by drying the leaves, Gurung added.

 

Gurung claimed that he has been selling the herb to patients of diabetes with guarantee and promises to return the money if the diabetes is not cured.

 

It is said that the herb can be brought into use after one year of its planting. RSS
