Farmers have been instructed to irrigate gram crop after 45 days of sowing and the second irrigation should be applied during flowering stage. In order to protect the crop from disease such as wilting and blight, it is advised to remove the remnants of crop. Farmer should continue to remove weeds from gram crop. Gram crop requires less water and it is mainly the crop of rain fed areas. In irrigated areas, light irrigation should be given to crop if the crop is in drought condition.
For the intercrop of gram, the water given for September crop of sugarcane is enough for the crop. In irrigated areas, due to excessive fertilizer, early sowing or due to rainfall, if height of the crop is taller, then pruning should be done two months after sowing. Plants affected because of wilting and blight must be removed from the field, in order to protect healthy plants for disease.
