TIPS FOR FARMERS
In paddy fields where there is no residue moisture, in such fields farmers can take up deep ploughing, so that the soil pathogens will die and in turn it will help to reduce pest incidence for the next paddy crop.
The left over crop residue should not be burnt. It can be used for making compost or vermicompost.
The grains of the harvested crops should be properly dried by retaining moisture percentage as mentioned bellow for long storage and also minimise the store pest damage Cereals 11-12 %, Pulses-9%, Oilseeds-8 and Vegetable seeds 5-6%.
Clear the weeds in Mango, Guava, Sapota orchard put it under the basin as mulch. The shoots and branches touching ground may be thinned and ground clearance of the canopy main field to prevent the incidence of pests and disease.
