Good season for watermelon farming!

Hi Friends,

I am interested in farming and wanted to take up watermelon farming as my first experiment. However I am honestly a fresher to farming. I would like to seek your support in getting to know about watermelon farming.

  1. What is the correct season for watermelo cultivation? I am planning to start in October or November
  2. What are the good seed types that can withstand to Andhra Pradesh climatic conditions?
  3. What is irrigation cycle, how frequently we should water them up?
  4. What is fertilizers and pesticides cycle ?
  5. Can you advise any wholesale buyers for watermelon?

I found this forum to be really good and members are really cooperative. I thank you in advance.
