TIPS FOR FARMERS
In the area where the paddy harvesting is completed, farmers are advised to take up fall ploughing which will facilitate conservation of rainwater due to pre monsoon showers. 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.
If rains received dry land farmers may take up land preparation across the land slope and keep ready the land for crop sowing.
While sowing of pulse crops, seeds may be treated with appropriate strain of rhizobium culture before sowing. 20gm/kg of seed.
Wherever the farmers are intending to take up paddy and sugarcane in next season, a green manure crop can be grown and incorporated in the soil.
