Selection of the field/land preparation practices Field should be well prepared free from weeds and well drainage facility. 1-2 deep ploughing, Soil should be exposed to sunlight, 3 to 4 rounds of harrows to reach fine tilt. Before final harrow, apply 8 to 10 MT well decomposed FYM/acre along with 250 gm Trichoderma for controlling soil born fungus
Seed Treatment-rate of timing/ chemical Seeds are treated with Carbendazim 2g + Thiram 2 g per Kg of seeds.
Sowing Time Summer, Rabi, Kharif
Seed Rate/ Sowing method- line sowing with row to row and plant to plant distance/ direct sowing Seed Rate: 250 - 300 g per acre.
Sowing: Direct in main field
Spacing: Row to Row and Plant to Plant - 150 x 45 cm
Fertilizer dose with timing Total N:P:K requirement @ 80:100:120 kg per acre.
Dose & Timing:
Basal Dose: Apply 50% N and 100% P, K as basal dose during final land preparation.
Top Dressing: 25% N at 30 days after sowing and 25% N at 50 days after sowing
Weed Control- Chemicals with doses and timing Timely weed removal is very important, need based hand weeding can be done to ensure healthy crop.
Diseases & Pest control- Chemicals with doses and timing Far effective crop control use following Insect and disease solution Powdery Mildew and Anthracnose - Apply Amistar (200ml/acre), Fruit rot - Apply Kavach @ 400g/acre and for any other diseases apply fungicide as per recommendation from the Department of Agriculture (plant protection)

Irrigation Schedule Irrigation Frequency Depends upon -
A.Soil type: Light soils need more frequency. Heavy soil needs less frequency.
B.Crop Stage: Vegetative stage: maintain adequate moisture for development of roots. Flowering & fruiting - frequent and shallow irrigation. Harvesting - gradually reduce irrigation during harvesting
Growing season: Summer - requires frequent irrigation. Winter-As against summer season, in winter the irrigation frequency is longer. Rainy-very less frequency depending up on soil moisture
Harvesting Full mature firm green fruits starts harvesting at 60-70 days, later at 5 to 7 days intervals. Timely picking stimulates plant to produce more flowers
Expected Yield of the variety Average yield: 12 MT/acre (depending on season and cultural practice)
