Cultivation Practises

Wel come

  • As per the need, irrigation was given. is commenly used.

  • During growth period of potato the attack of rotting was observed and it was effectively controlled by drenching of copper oxychloride or humicil.

  • The crop were ready to harvest within 70 to 75 days after sowing.
