A new use for Colas!!


I've got to try this out, especially since I don't have a green thumb (even cactii die under my care!!).

Farmers in Chhattisgarh are using Pepsi & Coca Cola in lieu of pesticides! BBC has more details in this report. Farmers are saying that regular pesticides costs Rs. 70 an acre whereas cola mixed with water works out Rs 10 to 15 an acre! Sales of colas in rural areas have been increasing. Pepsi and Coke are saying there's nothing in their drinks that can be used for pest control!! (Ya, right!)

So, the next time you take a bite of food and admire it's taste say a quite thanks to those coke companies!!!

(Yup, you guessed it. Pepsi isn't my favourite!)
