Jasmine-Inter cultivation

Weeding is very much important in jasmine cultivation. The normal practice is adoption of manual method of weed control. Mulching also reduces weed population.

In jasmine, increase number of shoots would increase the yield. To increase number of branches, pruning is needed. Pruning should be done at a height of 45 cm from the ground level during December-January.

The recommended fertilizers are applied in two split doses during January and July.

Application of organic manures like neem cake, groundnut oil cake etc. @ 100 gram per plant per month is highly beneficial.

Constant and adequate water supply during peak flowering season (March-October) is essential for high yield of flowers. After flowering is over, water supply can be cut off. During summer, irrigate twice a week.
