SOIL STRUCTURE

To be successful in growing, soil selection is very important. The soil should be properly prepared to allow for excellent development of the root system. The main factors to considered are as under:

Soil pH should be in between 6.0 to 6.5 or it should be maintained at this level to get maximum efficiency in absorption of nutrients

The salinity level of soil should not be more than 1 MS/cm. Therefore, as soon as you select the site, get the soil analyzed to decide its further reclamation

The soil should be highly porous and well drained to have better root growth and better penetration of roots

If soil is black, cotton gravels or morum (6” layer) can be added at the bottom for better drainage. Recommended quantity of soil and sand is added along with organic manures. Organic manure is recommended to improve soil texture and to provide nutrition gradually

At the time of bed preparation (After fumigation) Neemcake (@ 0.5 kg/m2) is added as prevention against nematode. All material should be mixed thoroughly for optimum results

The composition of bed material should be such that it should be highly porous, well drained and provide proper aeration to the root system
