Suitability of the variety for the Area Agro Climatic Zone

All India

Selection of the field/land preparation practices

Field should be well prepared free from weeds and well drainage facility. 1-2 deep ploughing, Soil should be exposed to sunlight, 3 to 4 rounds of harrows to reach fine tilt. Before final harrow, apply 8 to 10 MT well decomposed FYM/acre along with 250 gm Trichoderma for controlling soil born fungus

Seed Treatment-rate of timing/ chemical

Seeds are treated with Carbendazim 2g + Thiram 2 g per Kg of seeds.

Sowing Time

Summer, Rabi, Kharif 

Seed Rate/ Sowing method- line sowing with row to row and plant to plant distance/ direct sowing

Seed Rate: 250 - 300 g per acre.

Sowing: Direct in main field

Spacing: Row to Row and Plant to Plant  - 150 x 45 cm

Fertilizer dose with timing

Total N:P:K requirement @ 80:100:120 kg per acre.

Dose & Timing:

Basal Dose: Apply 50% N and 100% P, K as basal dose during final land preparation.

Top Dressing: 25% N at 30 days after sowing and 25% N at 50 days after sowing

Weed Control- Chemicals with doses and timing

Timely weed removal is very important, need based hand weeding can be done to ensure healthy crop

Diseases & Pest control- Chemicals with doses and timing

Far effective crop control use following Insect and disease solution Powdery Mildew and Anthracnose - Apply Amistar (200ml/acre), Fruit rot - Apply Kavach @ 400g/acre and for any other diseases apply fungicide as per recommendation from the Department of Agriculture (plant protection)

White Fly + Mites - Apply Pegasus @ 250g/acre

Spodetara+ Fruit Borer -Apply Cigna @ 250 ml/acre

Fruit Borer - Apply Proclaim @ 80g/acre and for any other Insects apply recommended Insecticides

Irrigation Schedule

Irrigation Frequency Depends upon -

A.Soil type: Light soils need more frequency. Heavy soil needs less frequency.

B.Crop Stage: Vegetative stage: maintain adequate moisture for development of roots. Flowering & fruiting - frequent and shallow irrigation. Harvesting - gradually reduce irrigation during harvesting

Growing season: Summer - requires frequent irrigation. Winter-As against summer season, in winter the irrigation frequency is longer. Rainy-very less frequency depending up on soil moisture

Harvesting

Full mature firm green fruits starts harvesting at 60-70 days, later at 5 to 7 days intervals. Timely picking stimulates plant to produce more flowers

Expected Yield of the variety

Average yield: 12 MT/acre (depending on season  and cultural practice)
