Before deciding watermelon as crop, ensure you dont have rats/squirrils/peacocks in the farm. You can save from other animals but these animals can destroy 80% of crop.

Sir,

What is the ideal spacing (seed to seed - single/double row per lateral; lateral to lateral) for icebox category. I am planning for this oct in Hyderabad.

Joy.
