Foliar Spray

The ratoon crops is generally neglected by the growers of the central U.P.The grower supposed the ratoon as a gift of God, so ratoon crop is poor in yield.Dalmia group keeps attention for the same. Each season we used to hire tractor- mounted sprayers (usually 10-20 in number) for each plant. Insecticidal cum fertilizer foliar spray campaign is conducted in all 3 plants & covered about 1/3 area of the total ratooning. For this we provide 50% subsidy to the growers and incur an amount of Rs.10-15 lacs for each plants. The spray campaign is conducted in month of may-June; in this period ratoon crop faces water stress & high incidence of black bug. Black bug sucks the cell sap & causes yellowing & malnutrition. So this campaign supports the ratoon to a large extent during the stress period.
