Agromet Advisory for Keonjhar district

PADDY: Prepare main field for transplanting. Transplant two seedlings per hill in erect & shallow position at spacing of 15 cm x 10 cm. Apply 20-40-40 kg N-P2O5-K2O/ha fertilizer at final puddling. Ensure 70 hills/sq m (15 cm x 10 cm spacing) for higher yield. Maintain only a thin film of water at the time of transplanting. Keep alley ways for controlling BPH (30 cm gap after every 10 rows).For weed control apply Butachlor @ 3lit/ha within 3 days after transplanting.

MAIZE: Make land preparation for sowing of summer Maize.

GREENGRAM: Make land preparation for sowing of spring/summer mungbean. Collect HYV like IPM-02-

14,IPM-02-03 and other suitable established local varieties @ 25 kg seeds/ha. Apply 20-40-40 kg N-P2O5-

K2O /ha at the time of final land preparation.

MUSTARD: To control Mustard Saw fly spray Chlorpyriphos @ 4 ml/lit. of water.

LINSEED: Irrigate the crop at the time of flowering (5 cm water) to get optimum yield.

GROUNDNUT: Quickly finish weeding. hoeing and earthing up when the crop is at 3 week stage. At the time of earthing up apply 250 kg Gypsum/ha close to the base of the plant and cover with soil if not applied at basal. Irrigation should be done depending on available soil moisture.

POTATO: Dehaulm Potato crop 10 days before harvesting and do not irrigate the field for enhancing storability of potato.

ONION: Complete all fertilizer application within 45-60 DAT. If fertilizer applied after 60 DAT, then there is chance of doubling of bulbs.

ANIMAL HUSBANDRY: Clean the shed and deworm the animals. Animals should be given mineral mixture along with salt regularly and wheat grains, jaggery etc. may be provided @ 10%-20% in the daily ration to meet the energy requirement of the animals.

PISCICULTURE: For controlling EUS disease in fish. Farmers are advised to apply Cifax @ 400 ml mixed with 40 litre of water in one acre pond area as a preventive measure. The fishes should be fed daily with oil cake bran mixture at the rate of 2-3 % of their total biomass.

Agromet advisory

Rabi rice

Transplanting stage

          As the weather will remain dry, maintain water depth upto the base of the plant followed by weeding when the crop is around 3-4 leaf stage

  Rise in temperature with cloudy weather will favour the build up of stem borer population.

  Install pheromone traps to monitor stem borer population.

  If the dead heart population is above ETL (more than 1/m2), go for alternate spray of Fipronil @2ml/l with Indoxacarb@1.5ml/litre at 15days interval.

  In early transplanted crop, apply 50%N as 1st top dressing in HYVs while 25%N in hybrid varieties at 21 days after transplanting.

Groundnut

Late crop at pegging stage and early crop at pod formation stage

       Yellowing of leaves may appear in sulphur deficient areas if gypsum is not applied earlier. To control it, spray liquid Sulphur (S-20%)@5ml/litre.

       Yellowing of leaves also caused by bud necrosis & rosette leaf viral disease transmitted by thrips & aphids, respectively. If the insects appear with yellowing of plants, spray Thiomethoxam 25WG @ 80g/acre or Acephate+Imidacloprid @750 g/acre.

       Due to abrupt rise and fall in temperature last week, there is possibility of attack of Tobacco caterpillar (Spodoptera litura). The forecasted weather is also favourable for its proliferation. This is a polyphagous pest. So following integrated approach should be started.

a.     Use Pheromone trap using Spodo lure to monitor adult population of the insect.

b.    Bird perching should be encouraged and night fire should be widely popularized

          In case of appearance of the caterpillar, prepare poison bait with 1 kg rice bran+ 200g jaggery/gur+10g Methomyl 40%SP+Water. Keep the bait at 20-25 different places in the affected field.

          The soil should not be disturbed after flower initiation stage.

Rapeseed and Mustard

v Due to fluctuation in differential of day and night temperature, the problem of Tobacco cater pillar may arise. Install Spodolure pheromone traps to monitor its adult population.

v Rising temperature with past cloudy weather is favourable for attack of aphids. Spray Neem oil 500ppm@5ml/litre. In subsequent stages, spray Ethofenprox@1.5ml or Methyl demeton@2ml/litre of water after cessation of rain.

Pulses

  As rise in temperature is forecasted, sowing of summer pulses should be completed soon to reduce YMV incidence.

  Use yellow sticky traps to monitor the population of white fly.

 

Vegetables

v  Thrips and mites are prominent pests in vegetables at present. To control both, spray Bifenthrin@1g/litre or Profenophos@2ml/litre of water.

v  Current weather is favourable for late blight in potato. To control it, spray Mancozeb+Metalyxl-M@3g/litre of water

v  Prevailing weather is favourable for attack of aphids in bean crop. Spray Neem oil 500ppm@5ml/litre.

Marigold

  This is the ideal time for planting of marigold. Seedlings of Ceracol variety should be planted at 30 x 30 cm spacing and fertilizer @ 40:80:80 kg N-P2 O5- K2O /acre should be applied at the time of land preparation.

CUTTACK

Agromet advisory for Cuttack

 

         Increased temperature may favour the egg laying of stemborer in rice in the main field. To attract the butterflies, place 4 Pheromon Traps/acre, collect the adults and destroy them by burning them under soil or by burying. Increased difference between daily maximum and minimum temperature favours the infestation of blast in main field. Spray 1 g Beam in one litre water.

Transplanted rice is at 3 week stage. Apply 16 kg nitrogen per acre. Keep the field saturated. Increased difference between daily maximum and minimum temperature favours the infestation of blast in main field as well as nursery . Spray 1 g Beam in one litre water. Field should be saturated before fertilizer application . Drain out water after three weeks and incorporate it in the main field it self by Japanese weeder.

High humidity may aggravate the infestation of mango hopper. In taller plants give fumigation of neem leaves. Spray 20 ml Chloropyriphus or 3 ml Imidachloprid per litre water and after 1 Week spray 3 g carbendazim / mancozeb per litre. All mango growers are requested to use hailnet and hailcap 1ft. above the mango plants to protect flower and nut drop as well as mechanical damage to the crops by hail storm.

Panama wilt in banana has been found. Uproot and burn the affected plant. Soil drenching with 2 g Carbendazim in one litre water thoroughly particularly in root zone. Other wise keep 5 g Carbendazim/plant in Capsule in the root zone.

Now it is the optimum weather for sesame sowing. Grow improved varieties like - Uma, Kalika, Nirmala, Prachi and Usha, Use 2 to 2.5 kg seeds/ acre. Go for line sowing at a spacing of 25-30 X 10 cm. Because of small seed size, the seeds should be mixed with dry sand or soil or saw dust for uniform sowing and less seed requirement
