I am having trouble in identifying the issue with my Water Melon Crop.
We started the Crop around Second Week of February 2016 in 1 Acre.
Germination was well and used the recommended Fertilizers and Pesticides. But from the last 2 weeks we see that the plants are not growing properly and leaves are getting curly. Near by farmers say it is because of Virus. Heard that all the other Farmers have stopped cultivation for the last 2 years as they have observed a loss because of the Virus.
Attached are some pictures took this morning.
I purchased the land last year and My Uncle is looking over the Cultivation currently. Now my Uncle says it is better to leave/destroy the crop at this stage instead of investing on the Pesticides more.
Prior to the Water Melon, we have cultivated Ground Nut in the same field.
Appreciate for any suggestions to get this field under control.
