 The land should be deeply dug and well prepared before the seedlings are transplanted.  Usually there is less mortality in the transplanted seedlings.  The seedlings with 3-4 leaves which are approximately 30-35 days old should be transplanted with a spacing of 50x50cm. 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0.  About 200 to 300g of hybrid seeds are sufficient to raise seedlings needed for planting one hectare.  Planting requirements  The seeds are sown in well-prepared nursery-bed and the seedlings of about 15cm high are ready for transplanting in 4 to 5 weeks. Or 75x50cm.Cultivation  Seeds and Sowing  650 g/ha or nursery of 25-30 beds of the size 1x4 m would be adequate to transplant one hectare.  The Brinjal seed is light in weight with the germination of 75 to 80%. which are placed 50 to 75cm in the rows and 90cm apart rows either in the plain beds or on ridges.1 8 .

10 kg carbofuran granules or 200 kg neem cake has to be applied.1 9 . • Ridges and furrows are formed at a spacing of 60 cm. 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0. Tomato.Preparation Of Main Field • Fields which are previously used for Potato. • The field is ploughed three or four times and leveled properly. • At the last ploughing 20-25 tonnes of farmyard manure. Chilly and Tobacco are not suitable for Brinjal cultivation.

a thin layer of straw or dried grass is used to covers the seedbeds. 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0. Seeds should be sown either in the morning or evening. Seeds should be treated with Captan or Thiram @ 3g/Kg seed against seed transmitted diseases. preferably at cloudy days.1 10 . To protect the seeds from heavy rains. The treated seeds are dried in shade for 30 minutes and then sown sparsely along the lines in ½ cm depth and then covered by the topsoil. of Azospirillum culture can be sprinkled over this and stirred thoroughly by a stick.Seed treatment Seed treatment with biofertilizer The seeds required for one hectare can be mixed with required quantity of rice Kanji just to have a thin coating. Then 100-200 g.

requires a good amount of manures and fertilizers for high yield. 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0.1 11 . • The nutrient requirement for varieties is 100:50:50 kg NPK/ha and for hybrids it is 200:75:75 kg NPK/ha.Nutrient Management • Brinjal being a long duration crop.

 NPK at 300:50:90 Kg/ha and 75x 60cm spacing is found optimum for PLR 1 Brinjal. the plants are earthed up and irrigated.  50 kg of Phosphorus (313 kg of Super Phosphate)/ha. the remaining 50% nitrogen (N) is applied in the form of urea 110 kg. as a band application 5-10 cm away from the plants and mixed with the soil.1 12 .  Different sources of inorganic fertilizers are indicated in Table.  Top dressing  Thirty days after transplanting. NPK/ha plus Azospirillum and phosphobacteria each 2Kg/ha.Application of fertilizer  Basal dressing  Fifty per cent of the N is applied along with full dose of P and K as basal dressing just before planting as noted below.  50 kg of Nitrogen (110 kg of Urea)/ha.  Annamalai Brinjal responding well for ratooning with yield potential of 63% of the main crop with in 100-110 days and with a fertilizer dose of 75:25:30Kg.  50 kg of Potash (80 kg of Muriate of Potash)/ha. 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0.  Immediately.

Transplanting The transplanting is done in small flat beds in light soils where irrigation is available and on shoulders in shallow furrow where irrigation water is scanty. In heavy soil it is usually transplanted on ridges and during the rains also it is advantageous to plant the seedlings on ridges. The seedlings are planted in the furrows at a spacing of 30 cm and the plant is allowed to spread on the broad ridge. 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0.1 13 .

Pest and Diseases  Shoot And Fruit Borer: Leucinodes orbonalis • Symptoms: Damaged flower buds are shed and fruits show circular holes. • Avoid ratooning of brinjal crop. • Spray Endosulphan @2ml/litre of water or Quinolphose 2ml or Carbaryl 3g/litre of water. since woody stem is preferred by the larva. continues 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0. • The large holes seen on fruits are usually the exit holes of the caterpillars.1 14 . • Controls: Removal and destruction of withered and dried shoots help in arresting the spread of the pest.

Repeat it 2 to 3 times at the interval of 10 days. followed by the yellowing of the margins of leaves. Leafhoppers : Empoasca devastans • Symptoms curling up.3 percent malathion has given very satisfactory results against adults and nymphs.1 15 . • Spraying 0. continues 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0. • Control measures • Spraying of systemic insecticides like Monocrotophos or Phasphomidon or Dimethoate @ of 2ml/litre of water is very effective. • Apply recommended doses of Nitrogenous fertilizers.

The severity of the disease can be reduced by destruction of affected plants and spraying of insecticides like Methyl demeton 1 ml/litre or Malathion 3 ml/litre of water. Repeat it 2 to 3 times at the interval of 10 days. Controls: Pusa Purple Round is tolerant to little leaf. C. 2/07/2010 UKSS_E-education _BRINJAL_12August2010_ver0. symptoms: small or little leaves.1 16 .  • • • • Young plant affected with little leaf: Pbytoplasma sp. Cercospora Leaf Spot (Cercospora solani -melongenae.
