Brinjal is cultivated in almost all regions of India except in high altitude places. It contains many nutrients like protein, carbohydrate, calcium, magnesium etc. The above-ground land of Jharkhand state is suitable for the cultivation of brinjal. Brinjal is counted among the major vegetables grown in all seasons.
It can be cultivated in all types of soil. Sandy loam soil with organic matter is best for good yield of brinjal.
Sowing of brinjal in cold season should be done in July-August. Sowing of brinjal in summer season should be done in the month of January-February. On the other hand, brinjal is sown during the rainy season in the month of April.
For better yield of brinjal, decomposed manure should be used at the rate of 200 to 250 quintals per hectare.
About 21 to 25 days after sowing the seeds, the plants are ready for planting in the field.
It is good to transplant the plants in the evening. Light irrigation should be done after transplanting.
If the brinjal planted in the plants is not plucked on time, then the crop may get spoiled.
