Agriculture Experts have directed farmers to pay special attention to the irrigation schedule of coriander. They said coriander should not be over irrigated as it reduces the productivity of the crop. The crop should be given water below the row level. If the crop is sown under moisture condition then after the growth, irrigation is not required for almost 15-20 days.
When the crop is 4-5 inches tall, then thinning should be done to maintain the plant population and hence to increase the productivity. They said that for promoting healthy growth, plant to plant distance should be kept 9 to 12 inches. Overall 2-3 weeding should be done to control the growth of weeds that restrict the growth of plants. After harvesting the crop, nitrogen fertilizer should be given to maintain the fertility level of the soil.
