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 field’s 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.
Farmers are advised to purchase seeds from authorised dealers with blue tags only.
