NOTE: For the first year donot immidietaly substitute 100% chemical fertilizer with the SIESTO GREEN products, as the soil is used to chemical fertilizer, it may affect the output. So the best way to substitute is by reducing 50% of chemical input in the first year, 25% the following 2nd year, & then another 10% by the 3rd year. After the 3rd year use synthetic fertilizer / inorganic fertilizer if their is a requirement depending on the soil health.

PEST ATTACKS, BACTERIAL, OR FUNGAL MANAGEMENT

PEST / BACTERIAL / FUNGAL IDENTIFICATION IN CROP SYMPTOMS SUGGESTED PRODUCT
Cassava Mealybug The cassava mealybug has a body that is encompassed by short fibers, and secured with a fine covering of wax, it is pinkish in color. Traps + Meta
Striped Mealybug Is a whitish mealybug with two longitudinal dull stripes, long polished wax strings, and two long tails. The striped mealybug happens on the underside of leaves close to the petioles and on the stems. It sucks sap yet doesn’t infuse any poison into plants. Traps + Meta
Cassava Green Arachnid Bug They show up as yellowish-green spots to the unaided eye. They happen on the lower surface of youthful leaves, green stems, and assistant buds of cassava. Lifeline + Traps + Meta + BT
Red Spider Mites The beginning side effects are yellowish pinpricks along the principal vein of developing leaves. Lifeline + Traps + Meta + BT
Cassava Scales This scale may cover the stem with obvious white emissions and in the end the leaves. This scale sucks from the stem and dries out it. BT
Whiteflies Sustaining causes direct harm, which may cause an impressive decrease in root yield whenever delayed bolstering happens. A few whiteflies cause significant harm to cassava as vectors of cassava infections. Lifeline
Termites They bite and eat stem cuttings which develop inadequately, pass on, and decay. They may wreck entire estates. In more seasoned cassava plants termites bite and enter the stems. BT
Anthracnose Cankers on stems and leaf petioles; leaves drooping downwards; wilting leaves which die and fall from plant leading to plant defoliation; death of shoots; soft parts of plant become twisted and distorted. Indofa
Cassava Brown Leaf Spot Circular or irregular brown spots with darker margins between leaf veins on older leaves; if an infection is severe, leaves may turn yellow, dry out, and drop from the plant. Indofa
White Leaf Spot Large, diffuse white spots on the upper surface of leaves; spots with grey center on the underside of leaves in humid weather. Indofa
Witches Broom Plants are stunted with excessive proliferation of branches; shoots have small leaves and shortened internodes; no chlorosis is present; cuttings from the shoots are weak but show no visible symptoms; few shoots successfully grow from cuttings. Indofa
Cassava Bacterial Blight Small, angular, brown, water-soaked lesions between leaf veins on lower surfaces of leaves; leaf blades turning brown as lesion expands. Indofa + Bacillus

NUTRITION DEFICIENCY

NUTRIENT SYMPTOMS SUGGESTED PRODUCT
Nitrogen Reduced Plant growth, uniform chlorosis of leaves, starting with lower leaves, but soon spreading throughout the plant. Azoss
Potassium Reduced plant growth with excessive branching, resulting in prostrate plant type. Small, sometimes chlorotic upper leaves; thick stems with short internodes. Potash Grow
Phosphorus Reduced plant growth, thin stems, short petioles; sometimes pendant leaves. Lower leaves turn purplish/brown. PSB Plus
Sulphur Uniform chlorosis of upper leaves, which soon spreads throughout the plant. Sulphur Grow caps
Boron Reduced plant height, short internodes, short petioles, and deformed upper leaves. ALP
Copper Deformation and uniform chlorosis of upper leaves, with leaf tips and margins bending up or downward. ALP

KEY FARMING POINTS

KEY FARMING POINTS

  • SOIL TYPE =  Cassava is a versatile crop that can be grown in a variety of soil types. However, it prefers well-drained, light to medium-textured soils. Cassava can tolerate poor soils, but it will produce higher yields in fertile soils.
  • SOIL PH = 5 to 7.5
  • CLIMATE / TEMPERATURE = Cassava is a tropical crop that requires a warm climate with a long growing season. It grows best in temperatures between 25 and 30 degrees Celsius (77 and 86 degrees Fahrenheit). Cassava is sensitive to frost and will not tolerate temperatures below 15 degrees Celsius (59 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • SPACING = The spacing requirement for cassava plantation varies depending on the variety of cassava, the climate, and the desired yield. However, a general rule of thumb is to plant cassava cuttings 12 to 18 inches apart in rows that are 3 to 4 feet apart. This spacing will give the plants enough room to grow and produce a good yield.
  • SEASON OF PLANTING = The season of planting cassava varies depending on the climate. In tropical climates, cassava can be planted year-round. However, in subtropical and temperate climates, cassava should be planted in the spring, after the last frost date.
  • MANURING & FERTILIZATION = Fertilizers requirement depends on the fertility or quality of the soil.
  • WATER MANAGEMENT = Cassava is a relatively drought-tolerant crop, but it still needs regular watering to produce a good yield. The ideal soil moisture level for cassava is between 60 and 70% of field capacity. Field capacity is the amount of water that a soil can hold after it has been drained.
  • HARVESTING DURATION = The harvesting duration of cassava varies depending on the variety, climate, and growing conditions. However, most cassava varieties mature in 6 to 12 months after planting. However, some varieties may take longer to mature, especially in cooler climates
  • YIELD = The yield of cassava varies depending on the variety, climate, growing conditions, and management practices. However, the average yield of cassava is between 10 and 25 tons per acre. In some cases, yields of up to 40 tons per acre can be achieved. However, these yields are typically only achieved with optimal growing conditions and management practices.
  NOTE:
  • Seed Treatment kit is optional.
  • Bio-pesticides or Bio-fungicides can be applied on a preventive dosage or when any pest, fungal, or bacterial diseases are identified.
  • Recommended dosage on this crop schedule can vary depending on soil health, environmental conditions, and pest attacks.
  • Add available forms of Phosphorus and Potash depending on the crop and crop varieties before every Transplantation.
  • Add available forms of calcium and magnesium as per the requirement.
  • 1-acre POORNIMA KIT contains: -
    • NPK caps = 2 caps
    • Zinc caps = 1 cap
    • Cropforce Nano Powder = 120gm
    • Humigrow Nano Powder = 120 gm
    • Mycorrhiza nano powder = 100 gm
  PRECAUTIONS: -
  1. Biofertilizer is not a chemical fertilizer hence do not mix with agrochemicals.
  2. Do not expose to direct sunlight or heat.
  3. Use Bio-fertilizer before or after 3-4 days of use of chemical fertilizer.
  4. Please, clean the sprayer before the use of Bio-fertilizer or bio-pesticide.
