Fertile loamy soil with good drainage is suitable for fenugreek cultivation

Fenugreek can be cultivated in wide varieties of soils with rich organic matter. However, loamy or sandy loamy soils with good drainage are best suitable for fenugreek cultivation. Moderate cold weather is required for its production. Cool climate is very best for proper growth and development of leaves. After land preparation farm yard manure at the rate of 10-15 tonnes per acre should be given and ploughing should be done. Levelling should be followed after that, to have a smooth land. Because if smooth rows are not made, then moisture does not reach seeds and hence germination reduces. Proper rows should be prepared. The best time for sowing fenugreek is October last week to November first week. Seed sowing should be carried out in rows with a distance of 2-5 ft. The rows should be made in north south direction, so that the sunshine can be available in greater amount for proper growth and development. After sowing, seed should be gently press in the soil and should be covered with light cover of soil.
