Agricultural experts have suggested farmers to apply fertilizer on time for the better production of maize. In irrigated areas where the soil is medium fertile, 2 bags of DAP and 1.5 bag of potassium sulfate or 5 bags of SSP (18%) , 1.5 bag of potassium sulfate and 0.75 bag of urea are required for the synthetic (hybrid) varieties of maize and should be added at the time of sowing. In rain fed areas all fertilizers should be applied at the time of sowing. In case of shoot fly attack, farmers should consult the agriculture department and apply the recommended chemical. Maize crop should be irrigated according to the weather conditions. However it is necessary to remove the excess rain water from the field if it is standing for a long period of time.
