Suitability of the variety for the Area Agro Climatic Zone
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.
Seed Rate/ Sowing method- line sowing with row to row and plant to plant distance/ direct sowing
Seed Rate: 80g - 100g per acre.
Sowing: Prepare the raised bed of 180x90x15cm, for 1acre 10 to 12 beds are required. Nursery should be free from weeds and debris. Line sowing is recommended. Distance between two row: 8-10 cm (4 fingers) apart, Distance between seed to seeds :3-4 cm ( 2 fingers), Seeds are sown in line at 0.5-1.0 cm deep
Transplanting: Transplanting should be done @ 25-30 days after sowing. Spacing: Row to Row and Plant to Plant - 75 x 45 cm or 90 x 45 cm
Fertilizer dose with timing
Total N:P:K requirement @ 120:60:80 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

Spodetara+ Fruit Borer - Apply Cigna @ 250 ml/acre
Fruit Borer - Apply Proclaim @ 80g/acre and for any other Insects apply recommended insecticides
Irrigation Frequency Depends upon -
A. Soil type: Light soils need more frequency. Heavy soils 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
C. 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
Full mature firm green fruits starts harvesting at 65-70 days, later at 10 to 15 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)
