Brinjal Cultivation : : Soil , Climate & Season


Soil & Climate : Though brinjal can be grown on all types of soils, generally, well drained sandy-loam and clay-loam soils are preferred for brinjal cultivation. The soil should be deep, fertile and well drained. A soil pH of 5.5 to 6.0 is good for better growth of brinjal. Brinjal is warm season crop and susceptible to frost. Climatic conditions especially low temperature during the cool season cause abnormal development of the ovary in flower bud, which then differentiate and develop into deformed fruits.

Season : Brinjal is a warm season crop and requires a long warm growing season.  It is very Susceptible to frost. Though it can be grown throughout the year, June-July, October- November and January-February (in Bangalore/South Indian condition) are suitable months for sowing. However, sowing and transplanting time differ as per agro-climatic conditions. In the northern plains of India, mainly two sowings of autumn-winter (June-­July) and spring (October-November) crops are taken. Sowing time in central and southern India is July-August and December-January.  In hilly regions, seed is sown in March­-April and seedlings are transplanted in May. A long and warm growing season is desirable for successful brinjal production. A daily mean temperature of 13 degree C to 21 degree C is most favorable for the successful production.
