Medicines are made from the oil extracted from its grains. See some information related to celery cultivation from here.

soil and climate

  • Light sandy loam soil and clay soil are best for good yield of celery.

  • It should not be cultivated in heavy and wet soils as there is a risk of drying of the plants.

  • The sandy soil is also not suitable for its cultivation.

  • The pH level of the soil should be between 6.5 to 8.

  • Better yields can be obtained if cultivated in cold and dry climate.

  • At the time of flowering, excess moisture in the environment proves to be harmful for the crop.

Field preparation, manures and fertilizers

  • While preparing the field, take out the crop residues present in the field.

  • After this, do deep plowing with a soil-reversing plow and leave the field open for some time.

  • Now do light plowing in the field 2 to 3 times.

  • At the time of tillage, add 8 to 10 tonnes of decomposed cow dung per acre of field.

  • 8 kg of nitrogen, 12 kg of phosphorus and 8 kg of potash are required per acre of field.

  • Add full dose of Phosphorus and Potash and half dose of Nitrogen at the time of preparation of the field.

  • After about 25 days of sowing, spray half the amount of nitrogen i.e. 4 kg nitrogen in the standing crop.

  • To make the soil friable and level, after plowing, a pad must be applied.

Irrigation and Weed Control

  • Give the first irrigation immediately after transplanting.

  • Take care that there is no water logging in the field.

  • Irrigate at intervals of 10 to 15 days as per requirement.

  • To control weeds, weeding is done at regular intervals.

harvesting and storage

  • It takes about 140 to 150 days for the crop to be ready.

  • The crop should be harvested when the color of the seed clusters turns brown.

  • After harvesting, dry it by keeping it in the shade.

  • After drying, both can be separated and stored in moisture free containers or sacks.
