Dear Sundram,

Nice to see your photos and all the best for your project.
We have also planted same variety under shade net.
Its around more than 2 weeks but progress is not that much which you have achieved.
Can you please share fertigation schedule which you have followed for crop period?
How much yield you got for it?
Kindly excuse me for asking many questions at a time.
Thanks in advance

Hi Sundaram:
I am also given to understand that Rijkzwaan seeds could be the right one to go with.
Great to see your progress using Soil less cultivation (if I understood right)… Is there any way I can connect with you to learn your planning on this.
My email id is
I am just getting into horticulture.

i am attaching the latest photograph of my yield 48kg from 400 plants.sold them to nearby food bazaar.totally harvested 160 kg so far 5 harvests.56 days old plants

hi pawan sorry for the delay in reply.regarding the nutrition i refered the articles i am uploading now.they give clear guidelines for the nutrients concentration.they give many formulations.use the formulation they mention for harrowbag cocopeat.i also used a software hydrocal to calculate the weight of chemicals to added.i prepared my own nutrient solution.if u want i can msg the details.but it is applicable for me only as u have to calculate your own using the details of your wayer source

thanks sundaram, when i travel next to madurai will get in touch.
till then good luck
