Suggestion for farmers: In Paddy field, maintain 2.5 to 5 centimetre depth of water to reduce the weed infestation. If the crop is in tillering stage (25 – 30 days after planting), this is the right time for applying first top dressing at 33 kilogram nitrogen/ha. Before top dressing with fertilizers, drain the water from fields. Due to cloudy weather there will be a chance of blast diseases in Paddy crop. To mange this disease, spray bevistine at 1 gram per litre of water or tricyclovzal at 0.6 gram per litre of water.
In sugarcane field, if there is water scarcity, irrigate the crop in alternate row, attend inter cultivation at 50, 65, 80 and 95 days after planting and urthing up can be done at 120 days after planting. Where the crop is at tillering stage, irrigate the crop once in 10 days.
