Dear Forum Members
We are currently cultivating Black Gram in our farm (Near Tenkasi, in Tirunelveli District, Tamil Nadu). We have sown VBN 4 variety black gram and it would be an organic cultivation. Black Gram is susceptible to pest attacks especially pod borers, aphids, bugs, white fly, etc and diseases like yellow mosaic, root rot, leaf blight & spots, rust, powdery mildew, etc
We are planning to use panchakavya, neem oil spray, diluted garlic as pesticides.
I will be interested to hear from members of the forum that have cultivated black gram on an organic cultivation process on their experiences in using organic fertilizers and in controlling diseases and pests and the natural formulations that have used
I look forward to receiving feedback
