Agriculture Department has directed farmers to immediately complete the sowing of late crop of cucumber. They said in addition to timely cultivate late crop of cucumber, farmers should also consider the fertility of the land. To increase the organic matter of soil, before sowing 10-12 tonnes farmyard manure per acre should be applied. After that the land should be ploughed in order to incorporate it completely into the soil and the land should be prepared thoroughly. Cucumber plantation requires well prepared and weed free field. The purpose of land preparation is to provide the necessary soil conditions which will enhance the successful establishment and growth. Cucumber does well on a well-drained soil, often planted on raised beds.
