    Experts from Punjab Agricultural University (PAU), Ludhiana, today sprayed insecticides on “Ber Baba Budha Sahib”, Dukh “Bhanjani Beri” and “Illaichi Ber”, considered to be over 400-year-old. They also pruned their branches.

    Heavily infested with lac insects, the growth of these holy trees was greatly reduced during the past two decades. “Ber Baba Budha Sahib” is associated with Baba Budhaji, the first head granthi of the Golden Temple and is one of the oldest ber trees, considered to be over 425-year-old.

    The team had also started the treatment of a beri tree at Gurdwara Ber Sahib in Sultanpur Lodhi, said Dr PS Aulakh, HoD (horticulture), PAU. He said the management of the gurdwara had approached them through a written communication that “ber sahib” had been showing signs of diminishing.

    Dr Aulakh claimed that the health of the trees on the Golden Temple premises had improved a lot. All infested shoots were pruned and later on plants were sprayed with Curacron 50Ec mixed with water as per requirement, he said. Dr Aulakh said devotees should neither place “karah prasad” near the stem of these plants nor touch them with oily hands as this could harm the bark of a plant[/COLOR]
