Due to the change in the weather in the month of April, the crops require special care. To get a good harvest this month, many things have to be kept in mind. If you are also associated with agriculture sector then read this post carefully. By following the things mentioned here, you can increase the fertility of the soil, as well as get high quality crops. So let's get to know about some important agricultural works to be done in the month of April.
Soil Testing: It is necessary to test the soil once in 3 years to get high quality crop. After the harvesting of wheat in the month of April, when the field becomes empty, then the soil sample should be taken from the field for testing. This gives us information about the nutrients present in the soil. Along with this we can also improve the alkalinity, salinity, acidity, etc. of the soil.
Cultivation of green manure crops: Green manure is very beneficial for increasing the fertility of the soil. Cultivate cowpea, moong, dhaincha, etc. in the vacant field after harvesting rabi crops and before transplanting kharif crops. Plow green manure crops a few days before sowing of Kharif crops and mix them well in the field. It also fulfills the deficiency of many micronutrients in the soil.
Moong: If you have not sown moong yet, then sow it late by the first week of April. To control weeds in crops sown on time, do weeding. There is an outbreak of white flies in moong crop at this time. To protect the crop from white fly, mix 50 ml country hawk in 150 liters of water and spray it on the plants. (This quantity is per acre of farmland.)
Papaya: The month of April is suitable for preparing papaya nursery. If the seed is not treated, treat the seed before sowing. Sow the treated seeds in beds 3 to 5 cm high above the ground surface. Sow the seeds at a distance of about 10 cm and depth of 1 cm.
