Weed the plots once or twice depending on weed growth. As the crop smothers the field after initial growth, weed control will be necessary only up to 30-40 days after sowing. Earthing up at the time of weeding is beneficial.
Sometimes, basal application of fertilizers alone is not sufficient for the seed crop. It is necessary to provide nutrition during the heavy growth and seed formation period through foliar spraying.
Water is applied immediately after sowing followed by life irrigation on the third day. Then, irrigation is carried out whenever, the fields become dry. Irrigation during flowering, pod formation and seed development are must.
