100gm/ac

Plant Population

9000-10000/acre

Suitability of the variety for the Area Agro Climatic Zone

All India

Selection of the field/land preparation practices

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

Seed Treatment-rate of timing/ chemical

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

Sowing Time

Kharif

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

Seed Rate: 80g - 100g per acre.

Sowing: Prepare the raised bed of 180x90x15cm, for 1acre 10 to 12 beds are required. Nursery should be free from weeds and debris. Line sowing is recommended.
Distance between two rows:  8-10 cm (4 fingers) apart,
Distance between seed to seeds :3-4 cm ( 2 fingers),
Seeds are sown in line at 0.5-1.0 cm deep

Transplanting: Transplanting should be done 25-30 days after sowing.
Spacing: Row to Row and Plant to Plant - 75 x 45 cm or 90 x 45 cm

Fertilizer dose with timing

Total N:P:K requirement @ 150:80:100 kg per acre.
A soil test is the best way to give fertigation

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

For effective crop control  use the following Insect and disease solutions:

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 soils need less frequency.

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

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

Harvesting

Full mature firm green fruits starts harvesting at 65-70 days, later at 10 to 15 days intervals. Timely picking stimulates plant to produce more flowers
