I am basically from Engg. background and hence my knowledge on Agriculture is limited. I have some basic queries on Pesticide/ Fertilizer usage on crops which I would like to get clarified
- Assume that I have a land measuring 1 acre in size, where Paddy is cultivated.
How often should I spray/ use fertilizers (between sowing and harvesting)?
What are the usual chemicals (like urea, etc.) used for this purpose and in what form (solid or liquid)?
What is the quantity of Pesticide/ Fertilizer needed for 1 acre? (important query)
Approximate labour expenses involved? (important query)
How long it takes to complete the activity of spraying chemicals?
I have similar questions even for other crops. I would really appreciate, if you guys can answer at least few of the above questions
