Agromet Advisory:

Due to forecast of rain in the coming week, the farmers are advised to complete sowing of kharif crops. Also farmers are advised not to apply fertilizer and chemicals during the heavy rain. According to the Extended Range Forecasting System, the rainfall for the month of July will be above normal, so the farmers are advised to take quick steps for kharif crop cultivation.

Kahrif 2017 Transplanted Paddy:

1.        Do not keep ponding water immediately at transplanting.

2.        Apply Saathi @ 80 g /ac within 4-5 days of transplanting for controlling weeds in the field..

3.        At tillering stage apply 12 kg nitrogen i.e 26 kg urea per acre.

4.        Water management is prime importance as per the age of crop. Increase water demand is there as the crop advances in age. In early transplanted paddy keep 5+-2 cm water in the field.

5.        Due to continous rain, there is chances of attack of swarming caterpillar in paddy , to manage this keep clean the bunds and bund trimming required. Apply Dichlorvous @ 1 ml/liter of water in the evening hour and apply 10 kg Chlorpyriphos on the bunds around the field to check the entry of swarming caterpillar.

6.        Taking the advantage of rainfall , the farmers are advised to conserve rain water in the field by elevating the bund height.

Direct sown Paddy:

1.           Due to receipt of rain, complete the beushanning operation in direct seeded paddy.

2.           Go for beushanning at 25-35 days after sowing. Follow bund trimming and apply 35 kg urea per acre.

Hybrid Paddy:

1.           Ajay, Rajalaxmi @ 6 kg /acre is required.

2.           Immediately prepare the nursery.

3.           Taking the advantage of rain prepare the wet nursery in the one tenth of the acre.

4.           The soil test based fertilizer dose is 120:60:60 NPK kg/ha.

5.           Transplant 1 seedling per hill at a distance of 25 X 10 cm so as to maintain 40 hills per m2.

Nursery Management:

1.        Taking the advantage of rain, keep 2-3 cm water in the nursery for proper growth of seedling

2.        When the seedlings are 12-15 days old, apply urea @ 4 kg/10 decimal for healthy seedlings.

3.        Before 10 days of uprooting the seedlings, apply carbofuran G @ 1200g /10 decimal.

4.        Also before uprooting the seedling alpply zypsum @ 100 g m-2 for easy uprooting.

5.        The seedlings roots are dipped in 0.1 % chlorpyriphos solution for 8-10 hours before transplanting in the field.

6.        Apply Chyalofop Butyl herbicide @ 10 g in 50 liters of water for 10 decimal of paddy nursery to control the grassy weeds which otherwise directly will be shifted to main field with seedlings

SRI Paddy nursery management:

1.           1 decimal is needed for one acre field.

2.           Prepare 1 m wide strips and length as per the field for raising SRI nursery.

3.           Provide Support around the strip by wooden so that soil will not be washed away.

AGROMET ADVISORY

Due to forecast of heavy rain in the coming week, the farmers are advised to complete sowing as soon as possible. Also farmers are advised not to apply any fertilizer and chemicals during the period of heavy rain. According to the Extended Range Forecasting System, the rainfall for the month of July will be above normal, so the farmers are advised to take quick steps for kharif crop cultivation.

SRI Paddy nursery management: 1 decimal is needed for one acre field Prepare 1 m wide strips and length as per the field for raising SRI nursery. Provide Support around the strip by wooden so that soil will not be washed away. Sow the pregerminated seeds in the FYM spread field. Spread a thin layer of FYM over theseeds and cover with straw mulches for germination.

SRI Paddy transplanting. Transplant 8-10 days old seedling at a distance of 25 X25 cm. Transplant 1-2 seedling per heal. Run marker of 8 ft wide in cross direction and the point where two lines meet, there transplant the seedling. Immediately after uprooting the seedling transplant in the marked field.

Direct Seeded Kharif Rice-Go for di rect seeding of rice in low and deep low land and complete direct sowing. Before sowing treat the seeds with 3g Thi ram or 1.5 g Tops in-M/kg seeds . Use 25 kg seeds per acre.

Nursery bed preparation for Kharif transplanted Rice-The seed bed area is ploughed twice either in dry or wet condi tions and then puddle by giving two or three more ploughings. After 10 days, the field is again ploughed twice and levelled.When the field i s brought to fine soft puddle condition, raised beds (5-6 cm high) of 1.2 m wide and of convenient length with 45 cm channel all around area constructed. Rai sed beds are not necessary in areas where water logging is not a problem. Excess water i s drained off to maintain a water level jus t s ufficient to cover the soi l. The surface of the seed bed i s so levelled that there is gradual inclination toward both sides to facilitate drainage o f water during the firs t few days .For each 100 m2 area of nursery bed, provide 1 kg N, 0.4 kg P2O5 and 0.5 kg K2O. Double the P2O5 appl ication in locations where cool temperatures retard the growth of seedlings. The fertilizers are mixed with soil before sowing.Sow (broadcast) pre-germinated seeds (soak the seeds for 24 hours, incubate in warm moist conditions for 36-48 hours until germination on a drained bed at the seed rate of 20kg (unsoaked weight basis) per acre. If seeds are sown too closely seedlings will be weak. It will be also more difficult to pull seedling s and there wi l l be more chances of injury to the long roots of adjacent seedl ings .

Maize:

This is the optimum time for sowing of maize. Sow the maize seeds (Navjot, Shakti, Decan-107, Decan-109) with a spacing of 60 x 20-25 cm using 15 kg seed/ha. Apply one third of N, full of P and K of the recommended dose (32:16:16 kg N:P:K/acre) in line.

Yam- Optimum time for yam planting. Grow suitable high yi elding varieties of yam like Local variety: Shreekirti, Shreerupa, Hatikho j, Shreeshi lpi , Small yam: Shreelata, ShreekalaWhite yam: Shreesubhra, Shreepriya, Shreedhanya. 8-10 quintals yam required for planting in one acre. Cut the yam into pieces of 150-200 g each. Dig out 1.5 ft. x 1.5ft deep holes at 3X3 ft spacing. Apply 5 tons FYM during final land preparation. Apply full P of the recommended fertilizer dose of 32:24:32 kg NPK/acre as basal. Plant the seed material at 5 -10 cm sowing depth. Cover the beds with s traw mulch of 5 cm height.

Pulses: Now the weather is optimum for sowing of greem gram black gram and cowpea. Grow high yielding varieties suitable for Orissa climate such as

Greengram: K-851, PDM-11, PDM-54, OUM-11-5,

Blackgram: T-9, Pant U-11, Pant U-19, Pant U-30, and

cowpea Cowpea- ,SEB-2, Pusa Barsati,

Use 8-10 kg/acre before sowing seeds are to be treated with 2 g bavistin/kg seeds. treat the seeds with the rhizobium culture @ 200 g culture/8-10 kg. apply 8:16 kg np/acre under rainfed condition Sow the seeds in line 30 cm apart depending upon the duration with 15 20 cm plant to plant distance.

Arhar: Col lect the Arhar seeds like Asha, Laxmi, UPAS-120 and use 20kg seeds per hactre. Spacing i s 60cm X30cm.Ferti l i ser dose 20:40:40kg N, P2O5, K2O . Apply 5t FYM/ha before last ploughing and 87kg DAP,10kg Urea, 66kg Mop /ha before sowing in l ines. Treat the seeds with Rhizobium culture @25-30g/kg of seeds before sowing.Sowing should be completed as soon as pos s ible after ces sation of thi s monsoon rain .

Oilseeds- Present weather may increase the caterpillar in groundnut, to control i t spray Quinalphos 20% EC or Dichlorvos 76% EC @ 2 ml / l i tre of water.Al ternaria leaf spot reported in the groundnut field, spray Mancozeb 75% WP @ 3 g/l i tre of water.

Ginger - Seed bed of 1 meter wide and of convenient length and 15 cm high should be prepared along the contours or across the s lope. Variety: Suprabha, Suruchi & Suravi should be planted. Select high loamy land for cultivation. Seed rate- Ginger: 1800-2000 Kg/ha. Before sowing treat the seed rhi zomes with Indofi l M - 45 or Capta f @ 0.3% & plant at a spacing of 25 cm x 25 cm.

Cucurbits- In cucurbitaceous crops, if attack of red pumpkin beetle is found then, spraying of Diclorvos 76 EC (DDVP) @ 1 gram per litre of water is advised.

Okra: Now the weather is optimum for okra planting. It can be grown throughout the year. Grow improved high yielding varieties - Utkal Gourav, Arka Anamika, Uphar, Parvani kranti and Hybrid varieties can be grown - Varsa, Vijay, Vishal, Tara, Adhunik, Atyadhunik, and Supriy. Plough the land thoroughly and remove the weeds. Apply 10 cartloads of FYM per acre during final land preparation and apply 45:25:35kg NPK/acre as basal for improved varieties and 20-25 cartloads of FYM per acre during final land preparation and apply 80:40:40 kg NPK/acre as basal for Hybrid Varieties. For line sowing use 5 to 7 Kg. seeds/acre for improved and 1.25 to 1.5 kg seeds/acre for hybrids. Sow the seeds in lines at 30x30cm spac ing for improved and at 60x45 cm. spacing for hybrid Varieties

Mango-July and August are optimum time of planting. 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, 10 0 g P2O5 and 60 g K2O fertilizer should be applied.

Poultry

          Provide vitamin B complex @ 7ml/litre in drinking water daily in broiler for healthy growth.

          Litter should be changed periodically and provide clean drinking water and change the water every day.

          Diseased and dead birds should be immediately removed.

          Regularly inspect the droppings of the poultry birds for any diseases symptom.

Otherwise seedling root dip with 10% Chloropyriphos solution is to be done before transplanting to check insect attack.

        Besides application of FYM @ 5 t/ha at the time of final ploughing, a fertilizer dose of 32:16:16 kg N-P2O5-K2O /ha is recommended for medium land rice in absence of soil test result.

        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.

      Apply pre-emergence weedicide Bensulfuron methyl+Pretilachlor@10kg/ha or Pyrazosulfuron ethyl @20g a.i./ha at 3 to 4 days after transplanting (DAT).

          Drain out excess water from the nursery beds if there is heavy rain.

Vegetables

  Due to more rain, damping off disease is likely to appear in seedlings and young plants. To control it, spray Ridomil MZ @1.5g/ l or Copper oxychloride@3g/l of water.

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
