Pomegranate Crop Management & Diagnosis!



Land preparation

Land is prepared by ploughing, harrowing, leveling and removing weeds. Pomegranate is propagated vegetatively by cuttings, tissue culture, air layering or gootee. Air layering is usually done during the rainy season and also in November-December. Planting is usually done in spring (February-March) and July-August. High density planting with spacing gives 2-2.5 times more yield than that obtained when the normal planting distance of 5 X 5 m. is adopted. Farmers have adopted a spacing of 2.5 X 4.5 m. Closer spacing increases disease and pest incidence. Pits of 60 X 60 X 60 cm. size are dug about a month prior to planting and kept open under the sun for a fortnight. Each pit is filled with top soil mixed with farmyard manure (20 kg) vermin-comopost (2 kg), neem cake (1 kg), pongamia cake (1 kg), furadon (20g) and super phosphate (500g). After filling the pit, watering is done to allow soil to settle down. Cuttings/air layers are then planted and staked. Irrigation is provided immediately after planting by drip irrigation
