Agromet Advisory

Agromet Advisory: Some parts of Sundergarh have received deficit rainfall upto last week. The following cultural practices for kharif crops are suggested as contingent measures to manage the adverse agriculture situation.Complete hoeing and weeding in non-paddy crop field to provide dust mulch. Weeding groundnut 45 DAS disturbs the pegging process. So prune the weeds with sickle. Apply post emergence spray of Quizalfop ethyl 5% EC @ 0.05kg/ha in 500 L water to control grassy weeds in groundnut/jute. Spray 2% KCl + 0.1ppm boron to blackgram to overcome drought situation. Foliar application of 2% Urea at preflowering and flowering stage of greengram is helpful in mitigating drought

Paddy Nursery Managment:

1.           1. Arrange 2-3 cm water in the paddy nursery.

2.        Due to cloudy weather and high humidity, constant monitoring of paddy nurseries against attack of insect pest are advised.

3.        Do not apply urea in the nursery.

Transplanting Paddy: Deficit rainfall in some parts of the district is observed . The following practices are to be adopted.

Provide protective irrigation. Remove the weeds and follow plant protection measures. Withhold N fertilizer application up to receipt of rainfall. Apply K fertilizers wherever soil moisture allows or wait up to receipt of rainfall. Strengthen the field bunds and clog the holes to check seepage loss.

1.. Due to forecasted rainfall ahead, the main field should be prepared for transplanting.

2. Do not go for paddy anymore in upland condition.

3. In case of water stress, spray 2% urea in Paddy and non-paddy crops at vegetative stage.

4. Seedlings up to 45 and 60-70 days old can be transplanted in case of medium land and late duration rice vars., respectively without much reduction in yield. Remove the weeds and follow plant protection measures against blast in nursery. Pulverize the main rice field in dry conditions, if it is not ploughed earlier to save time in final puddling. Use tractor/power tiller/tractor mounted rotavator for speedy land preparation/puddling . Follow closer spacing using 5-7 seedlings per hill.

SRI Paddy Transplanting:

1.The main field should be marked by a marker and 8-12 days old single seedling is to be transplanted at 25cmX25cm with a starter dose of 4 ton FYM/acre.

2.     10 days after transplanting run the cono weeder in every 10 -15 days interval .

Ragi

Due to receipt of rain last week, the land is soft so go for intercultivation in Ragi at 2-3 weeks after transplanting top dress with 10-12 kg Nitrogen /ac.

Maize:

1. Due to rain forecasting Sow hybrid maize like Prabal, HQPM, Cargil 900M, @ 6 kg/acre is sown.

2. Spacing is 60X 30 cm.

3. Fertilizer dose is 120:60:60 NPK/ha.

4. After 21 days after sowing follow earthing up and apply 12 kg Nitrogen/acre.

Pulses:

1. Early sown mung and blackgram, the pods are matured than go for harvesting to escape from the damage by rain.

Groundnut:

1 . Due to rainy and cloud weather condition, at 55-60 DAS. in groundnut Tikka disease may be found . To mange this spray Carbendazim @ 2 g /liter of water.

Livestock:. Provide sufficient clean drinking water to animals. Contact departmental personnel for vaccination.

Pisciculture: If the water decreases to less than 1 meter and than catch the fish for market purpose when the ABW is 750 g. To take Pisciculture activities in new pond, clean the pond from predator fish by application of mahua cake @ 1000 kg/ha pond. After cleaning the pond, collect the quality fish fingerlings and release in the pond.

        Apply all P2O5 &K2O and 25% N as basal at the time of planting. In light textured soil, apply 2/3rd K2O as basal.

      In zinc deficient soil, apply 25 Kg ZnSO4.7H2O (Zinc-21%) as basal.

      Plant 2 to 3 seedlings/hill at shallow depth in erect manner with spacing of 20 X 15cm for long duration and 20 X 10cm for medium duration varieties.

Jute

  Current weather condition favours attack of Semilooper in the crop. To control it spray Triazophos @ 2ml/l of water.

  Excess rain coupled with high humid condition is favorable for appearance of stem rot. To control it spray Metalaxyl 8%+Mancozeb 64% WP @400g per acre in 200 liters of water

Sugarcane

 

          Wrapping and propping should be done when the crop becomes 4-5 months old in medium and late duration varieties.

          Early shoot borer - Spray Chloropyriphos or Quinalphos @ 400 ml/ac in 200 lts of water after cessation of rain.

          Red rot - Avoid ratooning in red rot affected area, spray the crop with Mancozeb 0.3% (3gm/litre) or Carbendazim 0.1% at 15 days interval.

Vegetables

v Due to rain and high humid condition during last week, wilting is likely to appear in young plants.

-Drain out water from the field.

-Spray mixing Streoptocyline@20g with Carboxin+Thiram @400g or  Metalaxyl 8%+Mancozeb 64% WP @400g per acre in 200 liters of water.

v  Apply additional dose of potassic fertilizer to the crop.

Mango

          July and August are ideal time of planting.

          Suitable varieties are Amrapalli, Dusseheri, Chousa, Baganpalli, Totapuri, Bombay green, Suvarnarekha, Himsagar, etc.

          Seedling should be planted in pits at a distance of 10m X 10m. The pit size is 1m X 1m X 1m.

        One year old healthy grafted plant should be preferred. At the time of planting two basket compost, 80 g N, 100 g P2O5 and 60 g K2O fertilizer should be applied.

Pisciculture

  Purchase fish seeds from a reliable fish seed producer and stock 3000 nos. of advance fingerlings of more than 8cm size per one acre of water area.

  In case of three species combination, the stocking numbers should be for Catla-900, Rohu-1200 and Mrigal-900.

  In case of six species combination, the stocking numbers should be for Catla-800, Rohu-1200, Mrigal-500, Common carp-300, Grass carp-100 and Silver carp-100.

  In any situation, the average water depth of the pond should not be less than 5ft level

Agromet Advisory for Cuttack Districts

Drain out excess water from the field.

Rice seedlings is at 15 days in nursery, apply 4 kg urea in 10 cent nursery beds for proper growth and development To protect the

seedlings in nursery from insect attack ,apply 1 kg Cartaf Hydrochloride (Padan Caldan etc.) per 10 cent nursery area

Incorporate the green manuring of 35 to 40 days old and incorporate in field in lsate sown condition.

If there is silt over the crop after the flood, then spray normal water to wash out silts form the crops thoroughly.

In case of direct seeded rice, if the damage is more than 50%, then go for transplanting of rice. If less than 50% plants are damaged

then clonal planting of rice may be made in the areas with sparse population

Transplanting should be done after the flood water recedes, as the next week may receive below normal rainfall.

After the rain water recedes beaushaing shouldnt be done in low land with less plant population, weeding may be done with chemical

herbicide application, to control weeds in the main field of rice, spray chemical weedicide bispyribac sodium @ 8 ml/200 ltr of water per acre.

Infestation of swarming caterpillar may be found aftert the flood water recedes, for its control; apply Chloropyrifos dust 10G around the bond. Spray Chloropyrifos @2ml/ltr of water to the root zone in afternoon hour.

Go for beaushaning of direct sown paddy in medium and low land if past 21 days stage. Apply 16 kg nitrogen per acre at beusaning followed by weeding and gap filling. Drain out the excess water at the time of fertilizer application and pond it again after one day. If basal dose fertilizer not applied, apply 18 kg Urea, 100 kg SSP and 26 kg MOP while bushening followed by top dressing of 35 kg Urea after 7 to 10 days. Control the cutworm by chloropyriphos dusting around the bund.

Go for transplanting of rice. If Azolla is grown in main field, incorporate at the puddling time. Otherwise, apply 400 kg Azolla per acre 7 days after transplanting. Similarly, apply 6 kg BGA per acre 7days after transplanting. For good growth of BGA, apply 16 kg SSP thrice at 15 days interval. Do not allow the field to be dried up. Apply 2 kg Azotobacter (medium land) or Azospirillum (low land) with 2 kg

PSB before transplanting. Apply 6-8 kg N, 12-16 kg P2O5 and 12-16 kg K2O as basal fertilizer at the time of last round of puddling for medium to long duration varieties. If nursery is not applied with granular pesticide, go for root dipping of seedlings in 10 ml

Chloropyriphous mixed 10 litres with water for 6-8 hours Plant 2 to 3 seedlings per hill shallow and upright in lines at 15 to 20 cm apart depending upon the varieties and hills at 10 cm apart.

Complete sowing of Sesame, greengram and blackgram and vegetables likeLadys finger, Cowpea and cluster bean.

Raise vegetable nurseries for Cauliflower, Brinjal, Tomato and chillies in uplands

Maize is at 6 to 7 week stage (at tasseling stage). Go for weeding if required. Apply 8 kg Nitrogen/acre leaving 5 cm from the rows followed by earthing up. Drain out excess water if continuous rainoccur.

Jute is at vegetative stage. Drain out excess water as it affects the quality of fibre. Remove the branches during intercultural operation to increase the length of fibre by increasing the main shoot length. Jute semilooper has been found. Spray 2 ml Endosulphan in each litre water.
