The time for sowing mustard has also come. If you are also thinking of doing farming then this is the right time. Agricultural scientist told NewsNCR Hindi that Pusa mustard- 28. It ripens in 105-110 days and yields 18 to 20 quintals per hectare. If farmers use scientific techniques in farming, then surely the yield will be higher, as well as the damage to the crop due to pests and diseases will be less. In this way they will get more benefit from the crop.
It’s time to sow mustard
Agricultural scientists tell that from October 5 to 25, sow mustard in the field. Use 1 kg of seed in one acre of field. At the time of sowing apply 100 kg single superphosphate, 35 kg urea and 25 kg murate of potash (MoP) in the field.
Spray one liter of Pendimethalin (30 EC) chemical in 400 liters of water to control weeds within 1-3 days after sowing. After 20-25 days of sowing, weeding and hoeing should be done. Line to line distance between plants in the field is 45 cm and plant to plant distance is 20 cm.
The first irrigation of the crop is done after 35-40 days. If needed, do second irrigation at the time of grain formation in the pod. Irrigation should not be done at the time of flowering on the crop. After pruning and first irrigation, spray 35 kg urea per acre.
If the crop is attacked by mahun or champa pest, spray 5 ml of neem oil in one liter of water or 100 ml of imidacloprid (17.8 ml) in 200 liters of water and spray the crop in the evening. If needed, do second spray after 10-12 days. At the time of formation of beans in the crop, the old leaves of mustard plants should be plucked 20-25 cm below.
Spray 250 grams of Carbendazim (12%) and Mancozeb (63%) in 200 liters of water at 65-70 days after sowing. At the time of flowering and pod formation, mix 250 grams of Thiourea in 200 liters of water. Spray. This also protects the crop from frost. For good yield of mustard, harvest the crop only when 75 percent of the beans turn yellow.
The agricultural scientist said that apart from all these varieties, we have prepared a most innovative variety, which is named Pusa Mustard – 28.
It matures in 105-110 days and yields 18-20 quintals per hectare. All these varieties can be sown around 15th September and are harvested by the first week of January.
Talk about the benefits of early crops that ripen in a short period, the production of mustard is saved from the outbreak of Mahu or Chepa pests. Apart from this, these crops are also disease free. Apart from this, by sowing these varieties, farmers can get three crops in a year in their field.
