  • Agricultural activities (AICRPAM-CRIDA)
    Vidarbha region of Maharashtra
    Weather condition:
                Light rainfall received in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra state during past few days. Maximum temperature across the week was 0.1°C below normal and the minimum temperature was normal.
    Contingency measure:

    • Wait for further sowing of kharif crops in unsown areas till receipt of sufficient rainfall. For cotton, recommended deshi varieties include AKA-7 with seed rate 12 to 15kg/ha and spacing of 60 x 15 cm. American improved varieties include AKH-081, AKH 9916 with seed rate of 12 to 15 kg/ha and spacing 60x15cm OR 60x30 cm depending on the soil type. Cotton deshi hybrid PKVDH-1 is recommended with seed rate @ 3.0 to 3.5 kg/ha and spaced at 60x45 cm.
    • Recommended Bt cotton varieties may also be preferred. Recommended soybean varieties are JS-335, JS 93-05, JS 9560, JS 97-52, MAUS-71, MAUS-81.Pigeon pea varieties to be chosen as per the soil type are - early duration varieties for medium soil type(TAT-10, ICPL 87, AKT-8811) , medium duration varieties for medium to heavy soil type(BSMR-736, PKV Tara, BSMR-853) and long duration varieties for heavy soil type (ICPL-87119, C-11).
    • Recommended sorghum varieties are early duration- CSH-14 and CSH-17, medium duration- CSH-9 CSH-16, SPH-1635 and improved- SPV-669,CSV-20. Recommended greengram varieties are PKV- green gold, PKV mug -8802, TARM-18 and for black gram PKV-15, TAU-1, TAU-2 and TPU-4. In areas for further delayed sowing conditions, for cotton prefer early varieties of American and Deshi cotton, use 20 % more than recommended seed rate and reduce intra-row spacing. Early Bt cotton varieties may also be preferred.
    • Reduce the area under sole green gram and blackgram OR include as intercrops with slightly higher seed rate. For sorghum use early to mid-late varieties and use 20-25% more seed rate. Feasible risk minimizing intercropping systems include cotton + greengram/blackgram (1:1), pigeon pea + greengram / blackgram/soybean (2:4) , sorghum + greengram/pigeonpea (3:3) and cotton + sorghum+ pigeonpea+sorghum (3:1:1:1), cotton+soybean+pigeonpea+soybean (3:2:2:2). Also in soybean after every 6 or 9 rows one row of pigeonpea may be sown.

    Crop specific seed treatment/inoculation is advisable at the time of sowing for that use Azotobacter @ 25 gm/kg, Rhizobium @ 25 gm/kg, PSB @ 25 gm/kg and bio-fungicide Trichoderma @ 4 gm /kg of seed. As far as possible follow BBF layout for sowing kharif crops, particularly soybean, green gram and black gram. Continue nursery sowing of kharif rice in eastern Vidarbha zone..
