Cabbage- Planting activities

Cabbage is propagated through seeds. The recommended seed rate is 200-300 gram/acre. The best season of planting is October to November.

The land is prepared well by thorough ploughing or digging. Lime or dolomite @ 1-3 Kg/cent has to be applied depending on soil acidity. This should be followed by adding organic manure @ 100 kg/cent.

The planting is done on ridges. The recommended spacing is 45 cm x 45 cm.

Cabbage is a transplanted crop. Seeds are sown in the nursery. One month old seedlings are transplanted in the main field.

Apply recommended basal dose of fertilizers at the time of planting. A time lag of ten days should be given between application of lime and fertilizers.
