Harvesting of Urad, Moong and Cowpea
Among the pulse crops, farmers mainly cultivate urad, moong and cowpea. These crops are harvested from September to October. For information related to the harvesting of urad, moong and cowpea, read this post completely.
Urad Harvesting: After sowing, it takes about 85 to 90 days for the urad crop to become ripe. It should be harvested when about 70 to 80 percent of the beans are ripe. A sickle should be used for harvesting the crop.
Harvesting Moong: It takes 65 to 90 days to ripen different varieties of Moong. When the beans are ripe, their color becomes light brown. This time is suitable for harvesting. While harvesting moong, keep in mind that not all moong beans ripen at the same time. If we wait for all the beans to ripen, the first ripening beans start cracking. At the same time, harvesting immature beans has a bad effect on the yield and quality of grains. Due to this we may have to face loss. To avoid this loss, harvest the beans 2-3 times before harvesting.
Harvesting Cowpea: Cowpea is cultivated for both fodder and grain. If you are cultivating for grains, then harvest it about 90 to 125 days after sowing. Harvesting should be done only after the beans are fully ripe. On the other hand, if it has been cultivated for fodder, then harvest the crops 50 to 60 days after sowing.
