Re: Growth regulator
Dear Sir
- To get the good yields from muskmelon crop get your soil tested and apply the fertilizers accordingly.
- In general it is recommended to use 1 kgs of farm yard manure, 10-15 grams of calcium ammonium nitrate, 40 grams of super phosphate, and 10 grams of muriate of potash per pit during transplanting and remaining 10-15 grams of calcium ammonium nitrate one month after transplanting.
- Apart from this add organic manures, vermicomposts, and biofertilizers to increase the efficiency of soil to supply the available nutrients to the plant.
-Spray the crop with 25-50 ppm TIBA (a growth regulator) when crop attains two and fourth leaf stage. This will help to increase the number of female flowers and ultimately fruit set.
