Farm Advisory

During insufficient moisture supply, drip irrigation is one economical way of maintaining the moisture required by the crops. Mulching must be done to prevent the rapid loss of soil moisture and to maintain the good growing condition of crops

AREAS AFFECTED BY THE WEATHER SYSTEMS

RIDGE OF A HIGH-PRESSURE AREA, EASTERLIES, THUNDERSTORMS AND MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINS

Extreme heat causes internal water stress in crops, weakens and destroys standing crops. Watering crops during early morning and evening periods will help alleviate stress on crops.
