My Farm’s Experiment
Weeds were a headache to my farm. I used Gyphosate - many times- after each time I found the
weeds were growing more healthier than the earlier. We found that Sunlight is the main cause
o fweeds. To Prevent direct falling we boadcasted fodder sorghum ,Maize together (25 kg /acre)
+chemical fertilizers after light cultivation. Irrigated. Weeds and both started germination. To
speed up the growth of fodder sprayed Factomphos -1 kg +Urea-500 gm + Micronutrients -100 g
- Jagtonic -1 lits -sprayed on the whole plot. Then the fodder started fast growing and weeds
tried its level best to grow fast. But the problem was weeds become etiolated due to lack of
sufficient sunlight. After 65-90 we cut the fodder and spread all over the field, we started to
plant Elephat’s foot (SURAN) . Only disturbed the place where planting did.
This showed excellent Result ,Now We are not worrying about weeds.
Grown Cabbage + Elephan’s foot system with mustard on border side to restrict pest attack
in cabbage. regularly sprayed Lime -500 gm + 250 gm/200 lits water - make plants so hard.
Planted Sugar beet cuttings (Row spacing 1 meter) , in the row spacing 50cm gave proper
fertilizer application and irrigation, Within 2-3 months the wines covered the whole soil surface.
There by prevented falling of sunlight to the soil. When ever a farmer wish to plant any vegetable
/or any plant in lines just displace the wines from the soil and plant the desired one pre-
germinated in disposible glass and plant in the pit, cover the wines in the original position.
