Sugarcane

          To minimize infestation of Early shoot borer, spray Triazophos 40EC@2ml/litre of water

          Trash mulching should be done to reduce water loss due to evaporation.

Jute

          Taking advantage of recent rain, sowing of jute should be completed soon.

          JRO 524 (Nabin) variety is suitable for our state. The duration of the variety is 130 to 140 days. The fibre quality is better and extraction of fibre is also easy.

          Plough the land thoroughly and remove the weeds. Apply 5 cartload of FYM per acre during final land preparation and apply 12:12 kg P2O5:K2O/acre as basal.

          Seed treatment should be done with 2 g Carbendazim or 3 g Thiram/kg seeds to get rid of stem rot and root rot disease.

          Use 2 kg seeds/acre for line sowing and 3 kg seeds for broadcasting.

          To maintain 2 lakh healthy plants/acre, sow the seeds in lines at 25 cm apart with 3 cm depth.

          Recent rain has aggravated weed problem in early sown crop. To control grass weeds, apply Quizalofop-p-ethyl@2ml/litre of water at 2-3 leaf stage of weeds.

 

Vegetables

Due to abrupt rise and fall in temperature, the problem of sucking pests like Aphid & White fly will aggravate. To control these pests spray Imidacloprid @ 4ml/10 litres of water.

Fruit fly in Pumpkin Poison bait may be prepared by using 20g Dichlorovos with 200 gm Jaggery and 1 litre of water and kept at different locations in the plot.

Agromet Advisory for Cuttack Districts

Dos

Drain out excess water from the non paddy crop field and vegetables.

Go for immediate harvesting of the summer rice and bring the harvested paddy to a safer place.

Go for harvesting of matured non paddy crops like groundnut and pulses.

Cover the freshly prapered vegetable nursery with polythene or with straw to avoid high temperature.

Complete sowing of jute for better utilization of rain.

Go for sowing of maize.

Go for summer ploughing at places receiving soaking rainfall to reduce weed infestation, to destroy eggs and larvae of hibernated soil insects and to increase soil profile recharge.

The weather and time is optimum for sowing of green manuring crops like Sesbania and sunhemp in the areas receiving convectional rain. Green manruring crops are sown in medium and low land condition at 6-8 weeks before planting. Use 10 kg seeds per acre. Otherwise 6 kg/acre in case of mixed planting with paddy. Sowing time should be adjusted in such a way that the crop will attain 5-week stage just at 7 days before transplanting. Apply all the recommended dose of phosphorous of rice (100 kg of SSP) to the field during sowing time.

Dont: Dont leave the harvested paddy in the field itself.

Khjarif Plan

1.Prepare the kharif crop plan depending upon the land type, soil fertility and irrigation facility. Always use the certified seeds and change it in every 3 years. Yield can be increased by 15% using improved/HYV seeds

Climate in Orissa is favourable for commercial cultivation of fruit crops, such as mango, coconut, citrus, guava, sapota, papaya, banana, litchi and pineapple in uplands, even in marginal lands. For planting of fruit crops in July and August go for digging of pits before onset of monsoon to effect solarisation of soils removed from the pits for killing the hibernated insects and their eggs For mango citrus, coconut, guava, Jackfruit and litchi, make the pits of size of 1x1x1 metre; for banana and papaya size 0.5x0.5 m and for pineapple make trenches of 30 cm wide and 15 cm deep of any convenient length. Pits should be dug out at a spacing which differs with the crops as follows. Mango and jack fruit- 10X10 m, Coconut, cashew nut and Litchi - 8X8m, Guava- 6X6 m, Banana-2.4X2.4 m , Papaya- 3X3 m, Pine apple- 0.6X0.3 m

The pulse crop is at maturity stage. Go for Picking of pods instead of cutting plants. Dry them under sun for 2 to 3 days.

January sown groundnut crop is at maturity stage. Go for harvesting after giving irrigation depending upon the soil moisture content

Root rot of pointed gourd. Spray 10 g Plantomycine along with 20 g Blitox 50 in 10 litre watere. Thrips in Chilli has been found. Spray 300 ml Ethion or 400 ml Carbosulphan or Chloropyriphos

Intercropping system should be practised in rainfed uplands in stead of sole rice. Crops like greengram, blackgram, arhar, ragi, maize can be grown as intercrop with rice.

Harvest the matured Watermelon.

Onion & Garlic should be harvested as soon as possible.

Papaya should be planted in this period.

Matured Fruits like Mango, Litchi, Jackfruit, Pineapple, Pomegranate, Lemon, etc. should be harvested.

Flowers like Marigold, Jasmine, Hibiscus, Periwinkle, and Tuberose should be plucked daily.

FISHERY : Fish farmers, in case have stocked fingerlings in the pond for fish culture, they should monitor the quality and level of water, so also temperature. In case of water temperature goes above 30 0 C or water level goes below I m. depth, farmers are advised to go for early harvest and discontinue fish seed production and culture activity. Fish breeding and culture activity is discouraged.

GREENS -The weather is optimum for sowing of green (Khada). Go for land preparation. Lay out small beds of 5 ft. long, 4 ft. wide with bunds all around.. Remove the weeds and stubbles. Apply 2 baskets of FYM. 4- 6 kg seeds are required per acre. Because of small size seeds, mix the seeds with coarse sands for easy sowing. Cover the seeds with soil by hands followed by straw. Irrigate the beds and remove the straw after emergence. After 12 15 days the seedlings are ready for transplanting in the main field. The seedlings are transplanted at a spacing of 75x 30cm.

Sales Centre available at Block level Use 6 kg seeds/acre . Apply one third of N and all P & K of the recommended dose of 50:24:24 kg NPK/acre. Sow the seeds in lines with spacing of 45-60X20 cm at 5 cm soil depth.

Follow the following measures for rainfed up medium land areas of the state

Select efficient crops and cropping systems matching the length of the growing season. Some of the promising crops for rainfed uplands are maize, cowpea, arhar, blackgram, ragi, groundnut, sesame, ricebean, castor, pumpkin and sweet potato.

Choose short duration varieties, which possess faster rate of growth, deep and penetrating root system and ability to escape drought.

Store rain water to use as life saving irrigation

Perform off-season ploughing to conserve moisture, reduce pest and weed problem and to facilitate early sowing.

Use soil amendments in acid soils. Acid soils promote more grassy weeds. Use of soil amendments like lime or paper mill sludge reduces grass population.

Adopt intercropping/mixed-cropping system in recurrent drought prone areas. Intercropping system should be practised in rainfed uplands in

stead of sole rice

COCONUT : Mite attack in coconut resulting early fruit drop, small and unusual shape of coconut, fibre not fully developed and attached firmly to the coconut shell causing difficulty in removing fibre from shell. Apply sufficient quantity of organic manure along with chemical fertilizer. Clean the coconut plants by cutting the dried leaves . Keep the field clean Use Neemajal. Spray 2 litre Neemajal solution per plant @ 4 ml in 1 litre water. Other wise apply Neemajal solution in the rhyzosphere of the coconut plant. For this keep the Neemajal solution prepared out of 7.5 ml Neemajal with 7.5 ml clean water in a polythine with deep the soil root of coconut after a slant cutting.
