Pretreated MORINGA SEEDS germinates quick

Tue, 05/19/2020 - 07:04

Usually moringa seeds take certain time period to germinate that varies between 14 to 30 days depending on the prevailing temperature , vigour and vitality and quality of seeds. In the temperature around 30 degree Celsius it sprouts quickly and emerges out of soil in about 14 days and it is quite longer say about 30 days when temperature is around 10 degree Celsius . Also when the quality of seeds are poor the germination of seeds are irregular as some seeds germinate early and others take so longer a time to spout and come out of soil . Apart these internal and external influences , soil physio chemical properties also affect germination varyingly in different types of soil .I hear majority of farmers along the eastern coast of India complain about germination failure while those along the western coast say Karnataka ,Maharastra ,Gujarat witness good and quick germination of seeds . Irrespective of the causes , the moringa seeds are treated in 3 % panchagavya solution before sowing . The growth promoters like Auxin ,cytokinen , !Gibberellin , vitamins and amino acids along with loads of microbes prepare the seeds ready for quick sprouting and strengthen it to push out of soil early& evenly. 4 days old sprout of treated moringa seeds below .

Rugose spyralling white fly ( RSWF)serious pest in coconut

Sat, 05/16/2020 - 00:16

Rugose spyralling white fly ( RSWF) -Serious pest in Coconut plantations .
Recently in last 2 years this RSWF has started damaging coconut trees widely across India .This insect lays yellow colour eggs and young crawlers and mature adults feed on the undersurface of leaves .The honey like substance secreted from the bodies of RSWF falls down on the surface of lower leaves where capnoidium fungus grows fast and leaves become dark that would prevent photosynthesis and ultimately reduce growth and yield of trees .
Management of RSWF
Set up yellow colour polythene sheets( sticky trap ) 5ft by 1 1/2ft size smeared with castor oil @ 10 nos per acre at 6 ft high above ground .Adult insects are attracted to yellow colour and get trapped
Fix 2 Nos of yellow light traps in field and keep switched on between 6 PM to 11 PM to attract adults and get killed
Forcible spray of water over leaves to wash black fungus and RSWF
Mix maitha starch @ 25grams in 1 lit water and spray over leaves . Fungus and insects will be removed as flakes from the surface of leaves when it goes drying .Neem oil @ 30 ml in 1 lit water or Azadirachtin @2 ml in 1 lit water is sprayed at weekly or enough frequency depending on the severity of infestation and circumstances .
Encorsya parasite are released into coconut groves .This wasp like parasite feed on the crawlers and adult . Natural predators like chrysoperla is also released to check this RSWF
The use of toxic insecticide will kill these natural predators and parasites and RSWF would outgrow and multiply very faster and unchecked in the event of absence of these predators and parasites . RSWF completes life cycle in about 30 days .so many life cycles in shorter period allow rapid multiplication of RSWF and it spreadsIMG-20200514-WA0169648×1152 97.6 KB IMG-20200514-WA0171720×1280 122 KB IMG-20200514-WA0170648×1152 117 KB IMG-20200514-WA0173960×1280 327 KB IMG-20200514-WA0172720×1280 116 KB IMG-20200514-WA0174960×1280 325 KB windward to other trees around

Up to chat about GAP compliance? Hoping to ease the process.

Tue, 05/12/2020 - 12:32

I’m exploring ways to help farmers using technology. My aunt and uncle, who own a small fruit farm, suggested GAP audits as a good place to start. Specifically, because they require so much information, it would be helpful to automate (at least part of) the process.

Would anyone be willing to chat for 30 min or so about paint points around farming data, GAP or otherwise?

About me: I have a decade of experience in software development, product management, and marketing. Last four years have been working in the blockchain space.

Didn’t want to make this post overly long, so I’m happy to answer more questions in the comments–thank you!

Subash palekar 36x36 model in southern tamilnadu

Mon, 05/11/2020 - 18:13

In my farm in virudhanagar district in tamilnadu (800-900 mm rain). I want do to 36x36 subash palekar method 1 acre as a trial. I have access to enough water to provide water for this 1 acre throughout the year through drip irrigation.

WhatsApp Image 2020-05-06 at 10.18.28 PM (2)534×800 79.5 KB

First of all can i substitute coffee with a dwarf variety of papaya ? I wanted to do Coconut, arecanut, gliricidia, papaya(instead of coffee), banana and pepper eventually.

Is there any practical video in english or tamil on doing a 36x36 model from start to end ? I tried finding one all i ended of with are a few scattered videos of whiteboard explanations. nothing practical showing real fields. Found a few videos in Telugu [1 (] , but nothing in tamil or english.

Is there anyone out there in this forum who has practical experience with this model? Is there a farm in tamilnadu where i can visit to check it out in person?

Looking for a step by step guide on when to plant what. Should all the plants be planted all at the same time or should it be staggered planting?

I want to document this setup process from beginning to end. from putting in the drip line all the way.

Hi Friends,

I bought an acre land with mango trees (10yrs old apprxly). They are not even flowing last year and this year. Initially thought of taking them off and start farm a fresh.

But my heart is not happy to chop these old trees. Can any one suggest good idea to retain these old trees and also start multi layer farming a fresh??

Your inputs are really appreciated.
