Rice farming - 2018 Monsoon


This year activities started little bit early, starting with green manuring using Sunhemp. Broadcasted about 10Kgs of sunhemp seeds in two fields. The field was little bit wet, asked Palani to water the field also. Sunhemp was bought from Coimbatore Superseeds (Mettupalayam road, Near Central theatre) at 85 rupees per KG. Cowpea which was broadcasted earlier, started yielding, was greatly encouraged by that result.


Sunhemp is catching up slowly, soon they will come above the grass, wherever water didn't reach, it didn't germinate so it is not very uniform


With good rain, sunhemp has been growing well.

08-July-2018Tilling was delayed, since there was some electricity problem and hence sufficient water was not there in the field, even though rain was good. Ploughing was done on June 15th and next day soaked seeds were put for germination. Transplanting was completed on 6th July.


Applied some cowdung and did a weeding, 3 womens worked for 3 days, because of heavy rain, there is always standing water in the field.
