Question

How can I prepare soil for testing

Answer

Dear Sir, Please follow the guide lines below Procedure for Collection 1.Divide the field into different homogenous units based on the visual observation and farmer’s experience. 2.Remove the surface litter at the sampling spot. 3.Drive the auger to a plough depth of 15 cm and draw the soil sample. 4.Collect at least 10 to 15 samples from each sampling unit and place in a bucket or tray. 5.If auger is not available, make a ‘V’ shaped cut to a depth of 15 cm in the sampling spot using spade. 6.Remove thick slices of soil from top to bottom of exposed face of the ‘V’ shaped cut and place in a clean container. Procedure to prepare sample 1.Mix the samples thoroughly and remove foreign materials like roots, stones, pebbles and gravels. 2.Reduce the bulk to about half to one kilogram by quartering or compartmentalization. 3.Quartering is done by dividing the thoroughly mixed sample into four equal parts. The two opposite quarters are discarded and the remaining two quarters are remixed and the process repeated until the desired sample size is obtained. 4.Compartmentalization is done by uniformly spreading the soil over a clean hard surface and dividing into smaller compartments by drawing lines along and across the length and breadth. From each compartment a pinch of soil is collected. This process is repeated till the desired quantity of sample is obtained. 5.Collect the sample in a clean cloth or polythene bag. 6.Label the bag with information like name of the farmer, location of the farm, survey number, previous crop grown, present crop, crop to be grown in the next season, date of collection, name of the sampler etc. Farmers may bring soil samples directly to the laboratory (District Soil Testing Lab, Ernakulam 0484 2306169 / 0484-2703976)

Answer

Dear Abdussamad, Citrus leaves can curl due to many reasons like seasonal changes, overwatering, insect infestation such as scale, mealy bug, mites or aphids . Curling can also be due to diseases. If ants are crawling up the tree then there is a good chance there is scale insect or mealy bug or aphids. Leaves yellowing could indicate a deficiency and leaves curling could indicate attack by citrus leaf miner. Pale leaves can indicate deficiencies in iron, zinc, nitrogen or magnesium. Test the soil in the root zone of your lemon tree, then make the necessary nutrient application. Avoid water stagnation. For a domestic situation, removal and disposal of infected plant material may be effective. For minor infestations scale insects can be rubbed off using a damp cloth. Spray with Neem oil + garlic 2% emulsion may be effective Preparation of 10 litres of Neem oil + garlic 2% emulsion Ingredients : 200 ml neem oil, 200g garlic and 50g ordinary bar soap. Preparation : Slice the bar soap and dissolve in 500 ml luke warm water. Grind the garlic pearls,mix it with 300 ml water and strain to prepare garlic extract. Pour the 500 ml soap solution into 200ml neem oil slowly and stir vigorously to get a good emulsion. Mix the garlic extract in the neem oil + soap emulsion. Dilute this 1 litre stock solution by adding 9 litres of water to get 10 litres of 2% neem oil + garlic emulsion. You may also contact your nearest Krishibhavan for further guidance.

Answer

Dear Kani Flowering in Mango depends on various factors.The flowering mechanism of mango is very complex process and so many factors like physiological and environmental are affecting on it. Besides genotypes, it clearly depends on environmental factors.Usually new vegetative flush appears,become mature,on which flowering occurs. After withdrawal of rainfall and dry spell,winter begins which triggers flowering in mango.Mango trees require cool temperatures at the beginning of the Dry Season to induce flowering. Definitely climate change can cause variationn in flowering.
