Indien: Coca Cola und Pepsi Cola werden als Pestizid eingesetzt

Man staunt nicht schlecht und mag es nicht glauben, in Indien wird Coca Cola und Pepsi Cola als Pestizid auf die Reisfelder ausgebracht! Es ist günstiger als die herkömmlichen Spritzmittel der Chemiegiganten und soll zumindest annähernd den selben Effekt haben. Im Umkehrschluss heißt das dann, Pflanzenschädlinge mögen kein Coke oder Pepsi und sie gehen ein oder meiden zumindest die besprühten Felder, der Mensch trinkt es jedoch literweise mit Genuss! Das heißt für mich dann wiederum im nächsten Umkehrschluss, Tiere, und seien sie noch so klein und in des Menschen Auge sogar Schädlinge, wissen was für sie gut ist und was nicht! Der Mensch hat dieses Wissen und diese Instinkte längst verloren. Für mich ist das eine Art von Degeneration.

Coke and Pepsi Are Used as Pesticides in India


Farmers in India in the state of Chhattisgarh use coke and pepsi as pesticides because it’s cheaper than pesticides and gets the job done just as well. Video below.

Pepsi and Coca-Cola strongly disagree that their products can be used as pesticides because they say there is nothing in the drinks that can be used as pest control. But, the Farmers in the Durg, Rajnandgaon and Dhamtari districts of Chhattisgarh disagree and have successfully used Pepsi and Coke to protect their rice plantations against pests. And if you remember correctly Rajnandgaon recently grew a world record in rice production without the use of GMOs. We know using cola as pesticide isn’t exactly 100% natural or organic but surely it must be safer than traditional poisons.

This is a trend that is seen across other parts of India, with farmers using other Indian brands of colas too. The practice of using soft drinks instead of pesticides, which are up to 10 times more expensive, is gaining so much popularity that sales of soft drinks have increased dramatically in many villages. Farmers say the use of pesticides can cost them about 70 rupees ($1.50) an acre. By comparison, if they mix up a bottle of Pepsi or Coke with water and spray it on their crops it costs 55-60 rupees less per acre. When you multiply these savings the farmers are noticing a significant change in earnings and at the same time are noticing the lack of pesticide use is keeping their soil rich. Agricultural specialist Devendra Sharma says some farmers actually think that the drinks are the same as pesticides, but he explains it’s most likely because of the sugar syrups and when they are poured on crops they attract ants which in turn feed on the larva of insects. Pretty interesting huh? How many of you think this is a better idea than pesticide usage?
