  • Agricultural activities (AICRPAM-CRIDA)
    Himachal Pradesh
    Weather condition:
                Light rainfall received in Himachal Pradesh state during past few days. The maximum and the minimum temperature during the week ranged between 26.5 to 27.5 °C and 16.5 to 18.5°C which were above normal by 0.6 to 2.0°C and 0.1 to 0.6°C.
    Contingency measure:

    • Kharif crops: Farmers are advised to make bund for conserving rain water in the field. Bund should be higher and wider so that more rain water can be conserved in the field. Monitoring paddy against attack of blast and brown spot is advised. Spraying of Carbendazim @ 2.0 gram per litre of water is advised. Rice hispa is expected in rice fields, for management clear the grasses from bunds or spray cypermethrin 10Ec (1ml /litres) or chloropyriphos 20 EC (2.5ml /litres) of water. For control of Leaf folder or stem borer in rice broadcast of Cartap 4% granules @ 10 kg/acre for effective control is recommended.
    • High hills: The crop planted earlier in high hilly region, intercultural operations and urea dose advised. Improved grasses and legumes may be planted.
    • Fodder crops& grasslands/pastures: In mid hill region root slips of setaria, hathi grass may be planted in grasslands.
    • Vegetable crops: Rainfall is expected in the region so proper drainage in the field is recommended. Farmers are advised to use ?Light Trap? to keep a check on pest population. This causes less damage to useful insects. For making a light trap, a bulb should be fixed above a tumbler (either plastic or tin) having a mixture of water and few drops of Rogor or kerosene oil. The insects get attracted towards the light, fall in the solution and die.
    • Poly house agriculture: Spodoptera is expected in polyhouse crops, for control manage your polyhouse properly so that caterpillar should not enter in the polyhouse. For control of mites in affected crops advised to spray 10 ml Proparzite 57 EC and advised not to harvest fruits for week after spray. Open the side and upper bent for proper circulation of winds. Cover the sheet in the event of rainfall.
    • Horticulture: Keep the basins of the plants free from weeds and well drained. The ensuing weather is conducive for the attack of leaf minor in new growth of citrus. For its control, spray recommended chemicals. The new growth appearing below bud union may be cut. For control citrus canker, spray Malathion 10 ml or metasystox 10 ml per 10 l water. Advised recommended spray of chemicals. For control citrus canker, spray Malathion 10 ml or metasystox 10 ml per 10 l water.
    • Tea: Continue picking in tea at 8-10 days interval to maintain the quality and productivity. Lopping of shade trees advised in tea orchards Lopping of shade trees advised in tea orchards. Milli bug is appearing in the orchards, for control spray Deltamethrin (Decis 2.8EC @1340ml in 750 litres of water for one hectare. For the control of mites spray recommended chemicals. Spray immediately after plucking.
    • Mushrooms: Maintain room temperature 18-22oC and relative humidity around 85% for successful cultivation. Fungal Disease: Bavistin @.05%.
    • Floriculture: Intercultural operations and weeding to be done. Mite is also expected in carnation for control spray omit, pyromite 1ml per litres of water and Dicofol 2 ml per litres of water. Blue beetle attack is seen in Balsam, Zenia, cleome and rose for control spray cypermethrin 20 ml in 10 liters of water.
    • Apiculture: Examine colonies for barroa mites. Dust sulhpur on sealed brood in the colony and not on larvae to control mites attack on honeybees. For protection of ants put the legs of apiary into water so that ants could not attack apiary.
    • Fisheries: Due to high rainfall Fish pond should be surrounded /protected with net so that the fishes may not escape outside the pond. Maintain water depth of at least 5 feet in order to rear all the three types of fish viz., mirror carp, grass carp and silver carp. Add supplementary feed (rice/wheat bran & mustard oil cake and rice/wheat bran) @ 2-3% of total fish biomass on daily basis. In the event of high temp fluctuations in lower plain areas, put 5g lime per sq ft to avoid the stress.
    • Poultry: Ensure proper ventilation in poultry houses. Make sure to deworm your older flocks every month against round-worms. Replace the poultry houses with fresh litter and keep the houses clean and ensure drinking water to the birds. Climate is congenial for attack of Diathermia and cocksedia. Increase protein in feed of poultry. Protect poultry house from rains showers.
    • Livestock: cattle, sheep and goat: Monitor the animals for FMD and advised Protect calves against parasites, get them dewormed with piperazine liquid @ 4 ml/kg body weight, first at 10 days of age, then 15 days and then monthly upto three months of age and then quarterly up to one year of age. Vaccination. Ecto-parasite attack is expected in this weather for control spray Butox @ 2ml per litre in cowshed Give mixture of hay & green fodder.
