I would like to cultivate Watermelon…Below are my queries…Appreciate your responses.
I have around 10 acres of land and currently cultivated black gram and got good yield.
Soil type is - Loam - red color - dry land
Irrigation - I have a bore well with good amount of water. Requested for drip irrigation from govt. still waiting.
Is it OK if i can sow the seeds from Feb 1st 2014. Will there be a problem as the harvesting time is around April mid because of high temp??
How much yield can i expect for acre?
What are the prices per tonn in April (an average) ?
Any precautions ??
