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.

IBP KIT 1 KIT Apply it as soil treatment before sowing/transplanting. It prevents soil-born diseases and nematodes. Apply as per the soil health and soil-born diseases.

PEST ATTACKS, BACTERIAL, OR FUNGAL MANAGEMENT

PEST / BACTERIAL / FUNGAL IDENTIFICATION IN CROP SYMPTOMS SUGGESTED PRODUCT
American Bollworm Larva feed on the leaves initially and later bore onto the square/boll by thrusting their head alone inside, leaving the rest of their body outside. Meta + BT
Pink Bollworm Larvae feed on flower buds, and flowers and bore into cotton bolls. Meta + BT
Tobacco Caterpillar Larva feeds gregariously on the leaves and skeletonizes them leaving only the veins and midrib. Traps + BT + Meta
Aphids Tender shoots and undersurface of the leaves are mostly infested. Lifeline + Traps + BT
Jassid Nymphs and adults suck the sap from the undersurface of the leaves causing the yellowing of leaves. Lifeline + Traps + BT
Thrips Nymphs and adults scrap the tissue and suck the sap from the epidermis of the leaves. Lifeline + Traps + BT
Whitefly Irregular yellowing (Chlorotic spots) of leaf tissue. Lifeline + Traps + BT
Mealybug White fluffy mass of mealybugs can be seen on the underside of the leaves, near growing tips and stems with waxy secretions. Lifeline + Traps + BT
Mites Fine webbings can be seen on the undersurface of the leaves. Acarida + Traps + BT
Fusarium Wilt The earliest symptoms appear on the seedlings in the cotyledons which turn yellow and then brown. The base of the petiole shows a brown ring, followed by wilting and drying of the seedlings. Indofa + Bacillus
Anthracnose The fungus infects the seedlings and produces small reddish circular spots on the cotyledons and primary leaves. Indofa + Bacillus
Seedling Blight Small, water-soaked, circular, or irregular lesions develop on the cotyledons. Later, the infection spreads to the stem through the petiole and causes withering and death of seedlings. Indofa + Bacillus
Angular Leaf Spot Small, dark green, water-soaked areas develop on the lower surface of leaves, enlarge gradually and become angular when restricted by veins and veinlets and spots are visible on both the surface of leaves. Indofa + Bacillus
Vein Blight/ Vein Necrosis/ Black Vein The infection of veins causes blackening of the veins and veinlets, giving a typical “blighting” appearance. On the lower surface of the leaf, bacterial oozes are formed as crusts or scales. Indofa + Bacillus
Black Arm On the stem and fruiting branches, dark brown to black lesions are formed, which may girdle the stem and branches to cause premature drooping off of the leaves, cracking of the stem, and gummosis, resulting in the breaking of the stem. Indofa + Bacillus
Square Rot/ Boll Rot On the bolls, water-soaked lesions appear and turn into dark black and sunken irregular spots. The infection slowly spreads to the entire boll and shedding occurs. Indofa + Bacillus

NUTRITION DEFICIENCY

NUTRIENT IDENTIFICATION SYMPTOMS SUGGESTED PRODUCT
Nitrogen Deficiency Stunted plants with yellowish-green leaf color and reduced size. Azoss Caps
Phosphorus Symptoms may include smaller, very dark green leaves, with purplish reddening. PSB Plus Caps
Potassium It appears early in the growing season, begins in the lower canopy first, and then later spreads throughout the plant. Potash Grow Caps
Boron It may cause distorted, stunted terminal, abnormal uppermost leaves, and aborted flowers. Other symptoms of B shortage may be a "coon-tailed" appearance with dark rings on the leaf petiole (stem). Alp
Sulfur Sulfur deficiency symptoms first appear as a yellowing, chlorotic appearance in the upper leaves and leaf veins, because S is not very mobile in the plant. Sulphur Caps
Iron Iron deficiency may appear as leaf veins remaining somewhat green, while uppermost leaves become chlorotic and bleached because Fe is not readily transferred from older to younger tissues. Alp
Zinc Usually, Zinc deficiency appears in the younger leaves in the upper canopy because the nutrient is not readily translocated from older to younger leaves. Zinc Grow caps
Manganese Symptoms of interveinal chlorosis occur in the younger leaves in the upper canopy because Mn is not readily translocated from older to younger tissues. Alp

KEY FARMING POINTS

                                                                      KEY FARMING POINTS

 

  • SOIL TYPE = = Irrigated cotton should be grown on medium black to deep black soil. Saline soils are not suitable for cotton cultivation.
  • SOIL PH = 6 to 8
  • CLIMATE / TEMPERATURE = 25°C is ideal for cotton cultivation. Moisture in the wind is necessary.
  • SEASON OF PLANTING = The cotton should be harvested during autumn, being planted in mid-March. It will probably die in winter if you live in a cold climate.
  • MANURING & FERTILIZATION = Fertilizer requirements depend on the fertility or quality of the soil.
  • WATER MANAGEMENT = Total of 50-70 cm of water is required for the cotton crop. The moisture stress at critical stages drastically reduces the growth and yield of cotton. The moisture stress during boll development will not only reduce the yield but substantially affect the quality of fibers.
  • Crop Cycle = 6 to 8 months.
  • YIELD = It depends on crop management, Crop Variety, and weather condition. On an average it yields around 8 – 10 quintal per acre.

 

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.
