Plant protection


  • Generally plant protection is not needed. However, we may anticipate pests such as shoot fly, stem borer, aphids etc., in sorghum, maize and bajra.
  • Similarly diseases such as downy mildew, leaf spot etc., may occur. If the pests and disease occur in the early stage of the crop (before 30th day), then we have to take up plant protection measures.
  • Care should be taken to avoid cutting the fodder within 30 days of application of fungicides or pesticides.
