- to save seeds as only 2 - 3 kg is required for 1Ha,
- to avoid damage to seeds by drought or heavy rains,
- to avoid late sowing and adhering to correct crop season,
- to maintain higher plant population,
- to maintain correct plant spacing,
- to increase the rate of 'rhizobium' inoculation,
- to reduce the chances of Nematode attack to young seedlings,
- to increase drought tolerance because of deep rooting,
- to save two manual de-weeding costs,
- to reduce the chances of pest attack,
- to reduce the Fertlizer and Pesticide wastage at the first month,
- to reduce the cost of applying them,
- and to get more yield.
According to experts the actual yield in India for red gram is 700 Kg against its actual yield potential of 3000 Kg / Ha. We can definitely bridge this wide gap between yield potential of a crop and actual yield in the field by adopting to latest technologies only. (Click this link).
Note 1: My post on 'Redgram (Pigeon pea / Thuvarai) cultivation' in this blog is one of the most read article surpassing 'Melia' and 'Gmelina' posts in terms of readership. My personal experience in the cultivation of Pigeon pea (yield attained:1750 Kg/Ha) is explained in detail in this link.
In addition to major nutrients (NPK), ‘Pulse Wonder’ also contains micro nutrients such as iron and boron and plant hormones known as 'auxins' to promote growth.
'Pulse Wonder' should be applied at the time of flowering and fruiting to enhance yields by 10-20 per cent. It decreases flower shedding and increases drought tolerance in pulse crops.
Dosage for 1 acre: Dissolve 2.5 Kg of 'Pulse wonder' + 300 ml of 'Wetting agent' in 200 litres of water and spray it as foliar application on pulse crop during early morning hours.
