as you might imagine. I have tried that, and trust me, it was not an easy task.
However, fear not, with proper guidance
and strong will you can take care of your chili crop well with fruitful
The thing that might be challenging for
farmers in controlling their crops’ condition is about the weather anomaly with
extreme changes a lot of the time. Rainy season also usually brings chili crops
pests and diseases like parasitical fungus that destroys the fruits an even
stems and roots.
In the beginning of rainy season, the
amount of water in your soil is quite high so intensification of the care for
your chili crops must be done meticulously and carefully, with no leeway
Several steps that you can follow in
taking proper care of your chili crops in rainy season are:
Make sure to pay attention to the amount of water in your soil. Make sure it’s stabile and not too much. You can do this by paying attention to the left and right of your crop land and see that the excess water is never more than half of your crop land’s height. If you find the water to be a bit too much, move it to areas that need more water instead. Too much water in the beginning of your chili crops’ growth can destroy their roots.
Manage the circulation of sun light by planting your chili crops under direct sun light.
Weeding is also very important. In rainy season, microbes grow fast, like parasitical fungus, and pathogenic microbes. So make sure that your crop land is free from weed. Use proper tools and be careful about the spores.
Add fertilizer with enough calcium and potassium so your chili crops can be healthier and stronger with well cared immunity system.
