Calotropis can be used to address an issue of button shedding in coconut

Tue, 06/09/2020 - 07:31

Calotropis plant is seen as weed growing in wasteland . Earlier over 50 years ago farmers used to cut this calotropis plant from the waste land around and incorporate it near the root zone of coconut trees in the soil .Bcoz it prevents button shedding ( premature dropping of female flowers from the inflorescence ) .
Now let us see what is the main cause of button shedding .When one of the micronutrient elements called BORON is deficient in soil ,the female flowers , that upon perfect pollination and fertilization develops into fruit ( coconut ) shed prematurely from the inflorescence and yield of average number of coconuts per tree is reduced to 50-60 a year or most of the time the entire bunch is wasted and seen like a broom without even a single fruit in a bunch .
The Boron is playing great many roles in metabolism and growth and development of any plant on this earth . As for coconut is concerned it is a cross pollinated crop with female flowers of one coconut tree being fertilized with pollen grains ( male part ) of another coconut tree due to time difference in the maturation of male as well as female flowers in the same inflorescence of any one coconut trees . The button like shapes in the inflorescensce of coconut trees is seen by farmers as young and tender fruit and when it shed prematurely the majority of farmers don’t know what to do .
Why shed prematurely ?
The button shaped female flowers when mature and ready for fertilization secrete honey like tasty liquid over the tiny pores on its tip .The bees that visit male flowers of another coconut trees, carry the pollen grains ( male reproductive part ) by a tuft of hairs in its abdomen and deposit it over the females flowers .When the bees visit female flowers to taste the honey fluid, the pollen grains are deposited over there and it start germinating on the fluid and the pollen tube grows in length down the pore canal to reach the ovule and fertilize it .On successful fertilization the female flowers develop into fruit . When there is a deficiency of boron element ,the pollen tube will not grow long enough to reach the ovule ,thus leaving female flower unfertilised .The unfertilised female flowers will ultimately drop in about a day or two .Another use of boron is its role in the development of conducting canal that attaches female flower to its rachis in inflorescence . In case of deficiency of boron element this conducting canal will not develop well and flow of water and nutrients to female flowers will be arrested ,thus causing premature falling of buttons . For the purpose let me limit the use of boron with these two valuable observations in coconut . So to overcome this sort of issue , we need to apply boron micronutrient to coconut trees where deficient is noticed .
This calotropis plant has plenty of boron and when it is incorporated around the root zone it supply enough boron as it decomposes in the soil and prevent shedding of buttons .

Planting between Teak

Sat, 06/06/2020 - 03:04

I want some advice around Teak planting.

I read alot on this site around Teak and need some advice.

Reading on this site and many others i see Teak plants optimal Spacing of 2 metres by 2 metres

I plan the following

TEAK Plant <2 Metres Spacing>TEAK Plant <2 Metres Spacing> TEAK Plant

Question - if I plant something else between the Teak would it work and would it create any problems for the Teak, i am thinking

Either

Option 1 - Teak <1 metre space > <1 Metre Space> Teak
<----------------------2 METRES SPACING IN TOTAL------------------------------------->

Would this work ? or do Teak need 2 metres space with nothing in between them.

Summer ploughing as part of sustainable farming in Tamilnadu Mission on sustainable Agriculture

Thu, 05/28/2020 - 20:49

Tamilnadu mission on sustainable Agriculture Development ( TNMSDD )
Part of TNMSDD is summer ploughing ,for which Tamilnadu Agriculture department pay Rs.1250 per hectare as ploughing subsidy .Why summer ploughing ?
1.Deep summer ploughing breaks open impervious subsoil layer and increase aeration and infiltration of rain water and prevent run off vis-a-vis soil erosion
2.Due to aeration ,the microbes in soil multiplies and decompose organic waste of previous crop in soil
3.It brings pupa of soil borne insect pest out on to surface and gets killed by hot sun as well as birds that eats on it .
4.Turning over of soil during summer ploughing also expose soil borne pathogenic microbes to hot sun and sterilise it .
5.The rain that brings down dissolved atmospheric nitrogen is effectively intercepted by the ploughed surface and soil fertility status henceforth increases .
6.The ploughed soil forms a sheet of layer on top soil that effectively prevent evaporation loss of water
7.The residue of pesticide or weedicide if any sprayed on the previous crop will be disintegrated and broken down by hot summer heat .
Hence summer ploughing is an essential part of sustainable farming in rainfed area . One way or other it reduces the risk of rainfed crops due to aforesaid advantages

Scarecrow prevents birds damage

Wed, 05/27/2020 - 11:26
SCARECROW

When ground nut seeds are sown in the field birds like crow and peacock come in flock and eat the seeds .And most of the time birds damage the grains and fruits ready for harvest in the field .In this case farmers need to scare the birds off until either the seeds germinate or the mature grain or fruits are harvested .So scarecrow in disguise are set up in the field to signal the birds as if men are standing and moving around …
This set up is fixed to the ground by a flexible spring system and when the winds blow the scarecrow moves about and scare the birds

Desert locust swarm - Holocaust in India

Tue, 05/26/2020 - 23:58

The desert locust which originated in Africa fed gregariously on green vegetation post monsoon in Ethiopia and adjacent countries , multiplied and migrated from there and swarmed through Oman into Iran where it devastated crops , then passed into Pakistan where it increased the size of its army and settled in border districts of India. .Nearly half of the 33 districts in Rajasthan have been attacked by LOCUST SWARM and 50000 ha of crops were lost in Mathya Pradesh .Feared it may next move into UP, Punjab , Haryana ,Chandigarh and cause great loss of crops there .The locust swarm about 1 square mile size is capable of destroying so much as the quantity of food consumed by 35000 people a day .controling this locust swarm is a challenge for us .Some tips to prevent this desert locust swarm is given below .
10 kgs of hot green chillies +5 kg of garlic +5 kgs of small onion ground into past and put in 10 lit of native cow urine .In about 2 days mix 2 lit of this chilli based extract in 15 lit water and spray over the crop . Spray Neem based products @ 3-5 ml in one lit of water as deterrent . Strike loud metal sound ,raise alarm through radio or electronic devices in the field to scare the locust . Finally you can resort to synthetic chemical spray

An Indeterminate hybrid tomato yields more than 100 MT per acre

Tue, 05/26/2020 - 02:13

INDETERMINATE TOMATO YIELDING OVER 100 MT OF FRUITS IN SUSTAINABLE FARMING …
An indeterminate F1 Hybrid Hiltom yields more than 100 MT of fruits in one acre ( 4000 Sq M) when cultivated with 60 % organic and 40 % water soluble fertilizers . When the soil is fortified with enriched organic manure before transplanting and subsequently WSF alternated with liquid organic nutrients ,the crop grows steadily to reach the height of even 15-20 feet into the sky . First harvest is done in about 90 days .Every 3 rd node bears cluster of 5-6 fruits each weighing 230 grams on average . The least of the weight of fruit at fag end of growth is around 150 grams .Planted with 10000 seedlings per acre, each plant is grown on single stem thus maintaining quality and uniformity of weight of fruits . Since heavy bearing hybrid needs steady and sustained feeding of nutrients ,the organic and bio inputs play a vital role in obtaining maximum harvest without compromising the size and quality . The fruit has the extended keeping quality for over 3 weeks . In warm climate , 50% shadenet cloth will do better and in polyhouse or green house continuous production of yield is maintained with balanced plant nutrients and staking .
Also this Hiltom performs excellently well under hydroponics cultivation . Only few rare hybrids perform well in open field cultivation , polyhouse and greenhouse . One of the rare few is this Hiltom . So even an ordinary farmer who does not know about advanced production technologies can harvest minimum 60-70 MT as this tomato tolerates fluctuations in daily weather and has inbuilt resistence to fungal diseases like wilt and rot and tolerance to insect pest . This means only when the pest level crosses well beyond the Economic threshold level that significant reduction in yield is noticed .and under the prevailing circumstances of infestation ,with a round of less toxic insecticide spray the pest can be controlled without reduction in yield …
