Our country is the second largest producer of cotton in the world. Cotton is known as white gold due to the increasing demand for cotton in the world. The month of May-June is best suited for sowing it. If you want to cultivate cotton, then it is very important for you to know the specifics of the preparation of the field before cultivation.
Loamy soil is most suitable for cotton cultivation.
The most advanced cultivation of cotton is done in the areas of black soil in South India and Central India.
For its cultivation, fields with called soil, alkaline land, and soil filled with pebbles should not be selected.
Irrigation is of paramount importance in the preparation of the field for cotton.
While preparing the field, once irrigated, 1 to 2 deep plowing should be done.
After harvesting the rabi crops, deep plowing is done with soil turning plow.
Deep plowing destroys the weeds present in the field. Along with this, there is also more accumulation of rain water.
After this, light plowing is done 3 to 4 times with harrow.
If you want, you can also lightly plow the field with a country plow.
At the time of plowing, it is necessary to mix rotted manure of cow dung in the field.
Adding manure of cow dung fulfills the lack of organic matter in the field and better crop is obtained.
After plowing, make the soil friable and level it in the field. The field is leveled by planting a pat.
The level of the field is very important for a good crop. Both water holding and drainage are good in flat field.
If there is not much problem of weeds in the field then cotton cultivation can be done without deep plowing.
