Nutrient Management

Sufficient amount of nutrients should be supplied to the crop right from transplanting to harvesting as it helps in better crop growth finally giving better yields. Ensure soil fer tility tests are done to your field and apply the nutrients accordingly recommended by the soil health report .
• 3-4 tons of FYM should be applied to the field at the time of ploughing
• Both oversupply and under supply of nutrients to the crop is a threat.
• Oversupply of nutrients results to increased susceptibility of the crop to pests, lodging, etc. 


Nursery

·         Basal fer tilization with 0.5 kg of `N’; 0.5 kg of `P’ and 0.5 Kg of ‘K’ per every 100 sq m  is required to get robust seedlings, followed by another 0.5 kg `N’ at 12 days after sowing.

 

·         Spray ZnSO4 @ 2.0 g /l for correction of Zinc deficiency  if deficiency  is observed.
