Agriculture Department has instructed farmers to give appropriate fertilizers to the synthetic varieties of maize. In irrigated areas for medium fertile soil 2 bag Urea and one bag Potassium Sulphate can be given. They said in rain fed areas all the required amount should be given at the time of planting.
Moreover, they said that the crop should be given water according to the weather conditions prevailing in that area. Over irrigation should be avoided. Due to high moisture in the environment shoot fly can attack the crop. Therefore, crop should be properly observed and pest scouting should be done on daily basis. If the attack of shoot fly is observed then appropriate pesticide must be used. So that losses can be greatly minimized.
