Seeds sown in the soil are prone to many factors which inhibits the proper germination. Hence to promote seeds to germinate and grow to healthy plants pre sowing seed treatment have to be done. Seed treatment with growth promoting materials to enhance germination and support early growth of the germinated plants. Seeds can be treated with organic seed germinator for high percentage germination of seeds sown in the field.

Prevent tomato crop from TOSPO and other viral diseases

                                  TOSPO viral infections on tomato

Tomato crop is prone to viral infections especially in summer days. Plants show symptoms of spots on plants, like fungal infections, Flowers bunches burn and yield gets reduced. Plants end up growing. Fruits show the symptoms of reduced size, dis-colouring and loose the glossyness of fruits.

Viral infections are said to spread by sucking pests like Thrips and whiteflies.

Ammoniacal nitrogen supplement to the tomato crop promotes viral infections so reduce the application ammoniacal nitrogen containing nitrogen sources.

Following sprays may be administered to prevent and manage the TOSPOW and other viral infections in tomato crop.

First spray: Odis 2mL/L + Viral out 2 gm/L+ Magnum Mn 0.5 gm/l + Phytozyme 1 mL/L+ Econeem plus 1 %- 1 mL/L

Grow Marigold crop as trap crop to manage insect pests in Organic vegetable cultivation

                                  Marigod flower for trapping insects in tomato crop  

Trap crops are the crops grown in between the target main crop to attract insects or pathogens protecting the main crop insect and disease attack. Pest reduction in main field may be due to the prevention of pest attack on target crop by attracting them with special characters like attractive flowers and smells. These trap crops may also attract natural enemies of insect pests and keep check on the pests on the target crops.

                                   Intercrop in Tomato crop

Marigold crop may be grown as insect trap crop along with main crop to attract insects like Helicoverpa armigera fruit borers in tomato and other vegetable crops without damaging much the main crop.

                                   Fruit borer HELICOVERPA ARMIGERA on tomato and chilli crop

  • Papaya fruits appear bumpy and pulp tastes tasteless
  • Acidic and sandy soils are prone to boron deficiency in plants
  • Sufficient addition of organic matter to soil will help to supply applied boron to plants

Sprays supply boron to papaya crop

  • Aries Boron 20 supplies required boron to papaya plants through spray – 1 gm /L and through fertigation 300-500 gm per acre every month

 Typical symptoms of viral infections in gourds include green and yellow mottling and wrinkling of the leaves, mottling and wartiness of the fruit, and general dwarfing of the plant.

  • Spray with insecticides to check the sucking pests such as Aphids and Thrips which are transmitters of the viral disease.
  • Avoid ammoniacal form of nitrogen sources like poultry manure, less decomposed goat or sheep manure, Urea, Ammonium Sulphate, 19:19:19 mix NPK water soluble fertiliser.
  • Instead use only nitrate form nitrogen sources like Calcium nitrate, Potassium Nitrate as both soil and foliar applications.

Manage Whiteflies and Yellow Vein Mosaic virus on Bhendi [Okra or Bhindi] Crop

Yellow vein mosaic of bhindi or vein clearing of bhindi is the most devastating disease in all the bhindi growing regions of India. Up to 80% of crop loss is expected if the crop is infected at early stages.

     Whiteflies' spread Yellow Vein Mosaic Viral infection on Bhendi

Begamo virus is the causal organism and transmitted by white fly Bemisia tabaci. The occurrence and infestation of white flies are more severe in summer months and Yellow vein mosaic viral infections is also high.

  • Ammoniacal nitrogen has also positive advantage towards increase of viral infections so restrict use of ammoniacal nitrogen application instead go for Nitrate form of Nitrogen.
  • Removing and destroying disease affected plants from crop fields to avoid secondary spread.

Spray combinations for effective control of Whiteflies on Bhendi and manage the viral infections

  1. First Spray :

Organic management [Mechanical method] of brinjal shoot and fruit borer

Brinjal Fruit and Shoot Borer (Leucinodes orbonalis) is very important pest of brinjal crop.

Shoot and fruit borer infestation on Brinjal crop    Shoot and fruit borer infestation on Brinjal fruit

Water-trough pheromone traps may be used to mass trap male adult of Brinjal shoot and fruit borer moths with Leucinodes lures.

The pheromones traps trap the adult male moths (and not female ones) and kills in the fields which will be flying in the brinjal fields in search of female moths for mating. 

organic- Mechanical method in controlling Brinjal shoot and fruit borer1.jpg

This avoids the mating phenomenon with female moths and reduces the fertilization of the eggs laid by female moths consequently reduce the carryover of pest.

10-15 traps per acre may be installed for efficient management of brinjal fruit and shoot borer.

                             Fungal wilt disease of Pomegranate

Drenching of the following combination treatments may be administered through drenching at early stages of the infection and when symptoms are evident. About 5 litres of the combination must be drenched at 10 days intervals two times alternatively after loosening the soil around all the plants irrespective of plants [Infected or healthy].

First drench [1st Day and 21st day]

Dhanuka Zerox 2.25 mL/L + Dithane M- 45 3 gm/L + Econeem plus 1 %- 1 mL/L of water

Powdery mildew disease in Papaya crop is caused by an obligate parasitic fungi Oidium caricae.  Disease is more evident in humid areas with warm days and cool nights. Powdery mildew spores can germinate in 10–12 hours supported by low light levels, high humidity, and moderate tem­peratures and are mainly dispersed by wind currents.

Symptoms of Powdery mildew

Manage Bacterial Wilt disease in Brinjal

Bacterial wilt disease symptoms in Brinjal plants

Bacterial Wilt of Brinjal is caused by Pseudomonas solanacearum. This species of bacteria also infects other Solanaceous crops like Tomato and Potato.

Bacterial wilt disease symptoms in Tomato plants

Symptoms:

  1. Yellowing of the older leaves, stunted growth, wilting symptoms and finally collapse of the entire plant.
  2. Infected plant shows damping or drooping at high temperature noon times and pretends recover at nights
  3. Older lower leaves show drooping symptoms first before wilting occurs.

Management of Bacterial Wilt in Brinjal Crop

  • Follow crop rotation
  • Rogue out the infected plants and destroy them
  • Raise nursery in disease free beds
  • Seedling treatment after transplanting with Plantomycin5 gm/L 25 mL per plant at 4- 5 days after germination.

Drenching for Bacterial wilt disease in Brinjal

  • Drench with Borogold 2 gm/L + Humicas 2 mL/L about 100 - 150 mL per infected plant and 75 mL per non infected plants.

Manage White flies on Vegetable and Flower crops

White flies attack many plant species in the open fields and as well as in the greenhouses. White flies suck sap from the plants, causing yellow mottling on the surface of the leaves, wilting and stunting. They also help in transmission of viruses and producing honeydew, which attract black fungi of sooty molds.

 Damage of Plants by White flies

  • Reducing the quantity of Nitrogen, as high nitrogen favours the succulent growth which may increase whitefly infestations.
  • Phosphorus and Magnesium deficiencies’ symptoms in plants are believed to contribute more to white fly infestations among the crops.

 Sprays to control Whiteflies

 

Spray for White fly control

Spray to control whiteflies

  • White flies are strongly attracted to the yellow colour, so hanging sticky yellow traps above the plants will control the white flies’ population.
