Sowing time for tinda vegetables is going on. Farmers can earn well by sowing improved varieties of Tinda. In such a situation, if the methods suggested by the scientists and officials of the Krishi Vigyan Kendra adopted, good profits can be earned by cultivating it.
Climate & Soil
A hot and humid climate is good for Tinda cultivation. A cold environment is not considered good for it. Frost is harmful to its crop. That’s why it is cultivated in summer only. It can produced even in the rain, but the chances of getting diseases and pests increase during this time. Talk about the soil for its cultivation, which can be cultivated in all soil types. Moreover, Powertrac Euro 60 is the appropriate tractor model for farmers which works efficiently.
Right Time for cultivation
Tinda can cultivated twice a year. It can be sown from February to March and from June to July.
Advanced Varieties of Tinda Farming
There wide famous improved varieties of tinda vegetables. For example, Tinda S 48, Tinda Ludhiana, Punjab Tinda-1, Arka Tinda, Annamalai Tinda, Myco Tinda, Swati, Bikaneri Green, Hisar Selection 1, S 22 etc., are considered good varieties. Tinda crop usually gets ready after ripening in two months.
For sowing tinda vegetables, the soil should made friable by ploughing the field well with a tractor and cultivator. The first ploughing of the area should done with a ground turning plough. After this:
- Press the field 2-3 times with a plough or cultivator.
- After this, add 8-10 tonnes of rotten cow dung manure per acre per kg of waste.
- Prepare the beds for cultivation.
The seeds sown in pits and furrows.
Seed Quantity & Seed Treatment
For sowing tinda vegetable seeds, 1.5 kg of seed is sufficient in one bigha. Seeds should treated before sowing. This increases their germination capacity. To protect the sources from soil borne fungus, treat the seeds with Carbendazim @ 2 gm or Thiram @ 2.5 gm per kg of seeds. After chemical treatment, treat the seeds with Trichoderma viride @ 4 g or Pseudomonas fluorescens @ 10 g per kg of seeds.
For planting tinda vegetable seeds, 1.5 kg of seed is adequate in one bigha. Seeds ought to treated before sow. This expands their germination limit. To shield the sources from soil borne parasite, treat the seeds with Carbendazim @ 2 gm or Thiram @ 2.5 gm per kg of seeds. After synthetic treatment, treat the seeds with Trichoderma viride @ 4 g or Pseudomonas fluorescens @ 10 g for each kg of seeds.
Manures and Fertilisers
Nitrogen 40 kg (Urea 90 kg), Phosphorous 20 kg (Single Super Phosphate 125 kg), and Potash 20 kg (Murate of Potash 35 kg) should applied per acre in the whole crop of tinda. First, use 1/3 dose of Nitrogen full dose of Phosphorus and Potash at the time of sowing. Then, apply the remaining amount of nitrogen during the early development of the plant. On the other hand, spraying 2 to 4 per cent of 50 ppm of maleic hydrazide on the leaves in the tinde field can increase the yield by 50-60 percent to get more profit of tinde.
Nitrogen 40 kg (Urea 90 kg), Phosphorous 20 kg (Single Super Phosphate 125 kg), and Potash 20 kg (Murate of Potash 35 kg) ought to applied per section of land in the entire yield of tinda. To start with, utilize 1/3 portion of Nitrogen full portion of Phosphorus and Potash at the hour of planting. Then, apply the excess measure of nitrogen during the early advancement of the plant. Then again, showering 2 to 4 percent of 50 ppm of maleic hydrazide on the leaves in the tinde field can expand the yield by 50-60 percent to get more benefit of tinde.
Generally, tinda sowing of tinda done in flat beds, but it is very good to sow on dollys. 1.5-2 m for tinda crop. Wide, 15 cm. Raised beds should made. Leave a one metre wide groove between the beds and sow the seeds 60 cm apart on the sides of both beds. Sow at a distance of The depth of the sources is 1.5-2 cm. Moreover, the Massey 9500 price tractor model is advanced and comes at the right price range for farmers.
Summer tinda crop can sown at this time. After this second sowing will done in the rainy season. Irrigation should done every week for summer Tinda cultivation. At the same time, irrigation in the rainy season is based on rainwater.
Many weeds grow along with the tinda crop, which affects the development and result of the plants and shows adverse effects on the yield. Therefore it is necessary to prevent it. For this, weeds should be destroyed by hoeing 2-3 times.
Generally, harvesting of fruits starts 40-50 days after sowing. In harvesting, it should be noted that when the fruits are ripe and become of medium size, they should be harvested. After this, gap harvesting can be done every 4-5 days.
