All keeping in mind the rain forecast advice to farmers Do not do any kind of spraying. Because the medicine will get washed away in the rain and farmers will suffer financial loss. There is a possibility of bacterial leaf scorch disease in paddy crop during this season. If the leaves are turning yellow in standing paddy crop, then for its prevention, spray Streptocycline @ 15 grams and Camphor Hydroxide @ 400 grams per hectare in 200 liters of water and spray it at an interval of 10-12 days.
Scientists of Indian Agricultural Research Institute, Pusa have said that there is a lot of potential for false smut to appear in Basmati paddy this season. Due to the arrival of this disease, the grains of paddy swell in size and turn yellow. For its prevention, mix Blightox 50 @ 2.0 gm per liter of water and spray it 2-3 times at an interval of 10 days.
Brown Plant Hopper Danger
In this season, the attack of brown plant hopper which destroys the paddy crop can start, so farmers should go inside the field and inspect the mosquito-like insect at the place of the lower part of the plant. If the number of pests is high, then spray Oshen (Dinotefuran) in 100 grams / 200 liters of water per acre. There is a possibility of termite outbreak in crops and vegetables in this season, so farmers should monitor the crops, if infestation is seen then give Chlorpyriphos 20 EC @ 4.0 ml/litre with irrigation water.
Farmers sow sweet corn
Farmers can sow Sweet Corn (Madhuri, Win Orange) and Baby Corn (HM-4) in this season. Sowing of mustard can be done early in the prepared fields. Improved varieties- Pusa mustard-28, Pusa tarak etc. Seed rate of 5-2.0 kg. per acre. Peas can be sown early in this season. Improved varieties – Pusa Pragati, seeds should be sprayed with fungicide Captan @ 2.0 gm. per kg. Treat with seed rate and after that apply Rhizobium inoculation. Boil the jaggery in water, cool it and mix Rhizobium with seeds, keep it in a shady place to dry and sow it the next day.
Sowing carrots with machine will take less seed
In this season, farmers can sow carrots on the bunds. Improved varieties- Pusa Rudhira. Seed rate will be 4.0 kg per acre. Before sowing, treat the seed at the rate of captan @ 2 grams per kg seed and apply indigenous manure, potash and phosphorus fertilizers in the field. Sowing of carrot by machine requires seed 1.0 kg per acre, which saves the seed and the quality of the product is also good. There is a possibility of termite outbreak in crops and vegetables during this season, so farmers should monitor the crops, if infestation is seen, then give Chlorpyrifons 20 EC @ 4.0 ml / liter with irrigation water.
Sow with improved seed
Pheromone trap @ 3-4/acre for monitoring of head and fruit borer in vegetables (tomato, brinjal, cauliflower and cabbage) and diamond sack moth in cauliflower/cauliflower. Farmers whose seedlings of tomato, green chilli, brinjal and early cauliflower are ready, they should be planted on shallow beds (shallow beds or bunds) keeping in view the weather. In this season, if the field is ready for sowing crops like radish (Pusa Chetki), spinach (Pusa Bharti, Algreen), amaranth (Pusa Lal Chaulai, Pusa Kiran) etc., then sowing can be done on high bunds. Sow from certified or improved seed.
Spray when the sky is clear
Farmers should regularly monitor their fields during this season. If infestation of whitefly or sucking insects is seen in the crops and vegetables, then mix imidacloprid medicine in 1.0 ml/3 liter of water and spray it when the sky is clear. Farmers can also use Light Trap. For this, mix water and insecticide in a plastic tub or any big vessel, light a bulb and keep it in the middle of the field at night. Insects will be attracted by the light and will die by falling on the same solution. Many types of harmful insects will be destroyed by this method.
