Hi Vivek,

I am doing open filed of Indra. I am having approx 5000 plants. My plants are 130 days old. Harvested around 700 gm capsicum/plant in past 40 days

Recently i got severe thrifts attack (because of my laziness  :smiley: and weather). As advised by you i had sprayed (almost washed my plants) with Spinosad & Actara. What should be my next spray and when? - Pls advice.

Also i found that lots of plants are not having any new branches/flower. Is there any schedule i need to follow to get continuous flower?

Also fruit size is less than what i normally saw in market. Is there any way to increase the weight.



Hey paillasita,
The best way to control whitefly imo would be to apply as many yellow sticky traps as you can. For insecticides you can use imidacloprid bayar confidor super @ 4-5 ml/ 15 liter water or you may use Syngenta pegasus @ 15 gm/15 l water along with Multineem or neem oil. In my experience neem oil helps as a water emulsifier as well as magnifies the effect of pegasus. Pegasus would be a better option as it acts on whitefly both the upper surface and lower surface of the leaves even when sprayed only on the upper surface. Another spray after 6 days would decrease the infection to a large extend.

can we start polyhouse in black soil


For best results it is advised to use Red soil in polyhouse mainly due to its acidic and porous nature , but you can still go for black soil by adding fine sand to it in order to reduce water logging.
Please keep in mind that regardless of which soil type you are using it is important that the soil has the PH & EC measures within the required limits.

so please please just ask ur queries… you wont be disappointed… in fact i can guarantee u’ll learn something new…



hey Srikanth,

all that u see in this post is all that i pdf or ppt. i am heavily lagging on new info… but i myself dont know what to share…

waiting for something exciting to happen that i can share. so now that i have nothing to tell… why dont u tell us what is your crop of interest ? or anything you found amusing that you would like to share Srikanth ?



hey all!
well i found this amazing video… makes a lot of sense…
it educates us about the reasoning as to why combinations of crops are suggested to be grown together, characteristics of different plants, nutrients + the video gives a LOT of other info which we normally are not aware of.

really great video, i must say! like it if you learned something new and also for it made u smile :slight_smile:



why dont u just admit that u missed me Chandra ?  :sunglasses:
