Coke, Pepsi Used as Agricultural Pesticides by India Farmers!
For farmers in the eastern Indian state of Chhattisgarh it is cheaper than pesticides and gets the job done just as well. The product? Pepsi or Coca-Cola.
Agricultural scientists give them some backing – they say the high sugar content of the drinks can make them effective in combating pests. Farmers in the Durg, Rajnandgaon and Dhamtari districts of Chhattisgarh say they have successfully used Pepsi and Coke to protect their rice plantations against pests.
农业科学家给他们一些支持-他们说糖高的饮料可以使其有效地防治病虫害。切蒂斯格尔邦Durg、 Rajnandgaon 和Dhamtari地区的农民说，他们已成功地用百事可乐和可口可乐对抗害虫而保护水稻园。
“All that is happening is that plants get a direct supply of carbohydrates and sugar which in turn boosts the plants’ immunity” -Sanket Thakur, agricultural scientist
It is a trend that has been seen in other parts of India, with farmers also using Indian brands of colas. The practice of using soft drinks in lieu of pesticides, which are 10 times more expensive, is gaining so much popularity that sales of the drinks have increased drastically in remote villages. Both Coca-Cola and Pepsi have a pH below 3 and a positive ORP running around +250mV, making these so-called beverages a strong acid and toxic to humans, animals and insects.
它是一种趋势，在印度其他地方看到了农民也使用印度品牌的可乐。使用软性饮料代替贵10倍的农药，此做法正夯，以致偏远乡村饮料的销售已急剧增加，。可口可乐和百事可乐 ph 值低于 3 和正极氧化还原电位（positive ORP）处于 + 250毫伏特（mV），使得这些所谓的饮料对人、动物和昆虫是具强酸性和毒性的。
