  • Clear the land as early as possible before November for summer crop.
  • Make ridges or rows at 60 – 75cm.
  • Plant one seed per station, spaced at 25 – 30cm. Seed need around 25kg/ha or 10kg/acre.
  • Apply 100 kg basal fertilizer, preferably 23:21:0 + 4s at 5gms/plant just after emergency.
  • Keep the field weed free all the time.
  • Apply top- dressing fertilizer like urea, when plants are 30cm high or 21 days after emergency. About 9 gr per plant.
  • Harvest when the crop is at 18% moisture content and leave it to dry in granaries.
