How to avoid stagnation in soybean production

08 June 2023, New Delhi: It is normal for any crop to give low production year on year if it is cultivated on the same piece of land. We are assuming that you are using the best variety available and all recommended doses of fertilizer and are still getting low yields. It is beneficial to do deep plowing of your field once in 2 to 3 years from the point of view of stability in soybean production. So those farmers who have not adopted this method, please do deep ploughing of your field within the first two weeks of June. After that, prepare the field by running the cultivator and screed in the opposite direction. In normal years, prepare the field by running the cultivator and screed twice in the opposite direction.

According to the availability, run a sub-soiler at an interval of 10 meters in opposite directions in your field, which will increase the water-holding capacity of the land, and will help in saving the crop for a longer period in the unexpected situation of drought.

For the past few years, incidents like drought, excessive rainfall, or untimely rain are being seen in the crop. To save the crop in such adverse conditions, it is advisable to choose BBF (wide bed system) or ridge-furrow system (cud-med-system) for sowing soybean and arrange for related equipment or equipment.

Before the last weeding, apply cow dung (10 tons/ha) or chicken manure (2.5 tons/ha) in the field and mix it well. This will increase the quality and nutrients of the land.
