Mr.Guru prasad …
Here I am posting technical matters of precision farming for hybrid brinjal as you needed …Any clarification you may post your queries …
PRECISION FARMING IN BRINJAL TO GET 150 MT PER ACRE
Step 1: Quality nursery produced in shade net house .Shade net description is 50 % and sides are covered with insect proof nylon net.
Step 2: use portray of 98 cells ( 54 * 27 Cms ) of of 3.5 cm dia and 0.8 mm thickness . 80 protrays are needed to raise seedlings to cover one acre field , roughly about 7500 plants at the spacing of 90 cms* 60 cms * 75 cms in a paired row system.
Step 3 :growing medium: Sterilized cocopeat @ 100 kgs per acre mixed with 2 kgs neemcake and 0.4 kg each Azospirillum and phosphobacteria .
Step 4: seed treatment : 80 grams of seeds required for one acre coverage . Treat the seeds with pseudomonas florescens and Azospirillum @ 1 gram and 20 grams respectively .
Step 5: sowing : treated seeds are sown in portray @ one seed per cell , covered with cocopeat , trays are kept one above other and covered with polythene sheets till germination starts.After 6 days germinated portrays are individually placed on the raised bed in shade net , watering is done twice a day with rose can , panchagavya @ 3 % is sprayed on 15 th day of sowing ,19:19:19+MN fertilizers @0.5 % solution is drenched using rose can at 18 th days after sowing.
35 days old seedlings are transplanted in the main field
Step 6: Drip system with inline drippers are used for vegetables spaced at 5 feet interval
The drippers with specification of 4 LPH are placed at 60 cms interval or 3.5 LPH @ 50 cms interval.
Step 7: Planting system and population maintenance
Ploughing ; 4 times , chisel and disc plow each one time and cultivator twice
During last plowing apply 10 MT of FYM
75 % of recommended dose of Super phosphate ie, 280 kgs applied as basal dose
Azospirillum and phosphobacteria each 0.8 kgs along with 20 kgs of FYM and 40 kgs of neem cake is apllied before last plowing
Either T.viride or Pseudomonas @ 1 kg is applied along with 40 kgs of FYM before last ploughing
Riased bed of 4 feet width is formed at an interval of one foot interval and drip line is placed at the centre of each bed
Step 8: Before planting beds are wetted by running drippers for 8 to 12 hours
Pre emergence weedicide @ 1.2 lit per acre is sprayed before transplanting when the soil is moist using high volume sprayer
35 days old seedlings are dipped in 0.5% solution of pseudomonas flouresens for 30 min and then transplanted in the main field in the spacing of 906075 cms in paired row system using ropes …
One row of African marigold seedlings of 40 days old are planted @ one row for every 16 rows of brinjal seedlings …
Gap filling is to be done at 7 th days of planting so as to maintain required population
Step 9 : Fertigation techniques :
Recommended dose -80:60:40 kgs of NPK per acre out of which 75 % was applied as basal dose in the forms of super phosphate . so fertigation is done with 80:15:40 KGS OF NPK in terms of below water soluble fertilizers and given once in 3 days interval as scheduled in the attached photocopy …
19 all = 32 kgs
13:0:45 = 76 kgs
12:61:0 = 15 kgs
Urea = 136 kgs
Step 10 : Intercultivation : Foliar spray of pseudomonas @ 0.5 % at 15 days interval for 6 times
Triacontanol 250 ml mixed in 200 lit water ( 0.25 ppm ) is sprayed 15 and 30 th days after plant9ing
Planofix @ 50 ml in 200 lit water ( 0.25 ppm ) is prayed on 45 , 60 and 90 th day
Micronutrient mixture @ 1 g /lit ( 0.1%) is sprayed two times at 40 th and 80 th day after planting
19 :19:19 +MN @ 1% ( 10 grams/lit ) is sprayed at 60 days after planting
Step 11: Harvesting and post harvest management
Harvest at fully matured stage . you can get 90 % first grade quality brinjal fruits …
As live fencing you either plant sesbania tree or melia dubia to act as wind break during heavy winds …
The aged couple ( seen in the attachment ) are my farmers when I was working as horticultural officer …I arranged bank loan of Rs.50,000 for this couple towards farmer contribution to the precision farming scheme and the rest was govt susbsidy …Water soluble fertilizers and seeds were supplied free of cost …These couple were happy to harvest bumper crop of brinjal round the year …
