Irrigation Schedule

Irrigation Frequency Depends upon -

A. Soil type: Light soils need more frequency. Heavy soils 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

C. Growing season: Summer - requires frequent irrigation.

Winter- As against summer season, in winter the irrigation frequency is longer.

Monsoon - very less frequency depending up on soil moisture

Harvesting

Generally harvesting starts at 40-45 days. To follow alternate day picking.
