Land Preparation

Land preparation

The site should be ploughed to a fine tilth and removed with stones, weeds and debris. The ideal field for cabbage should have not been grown with other crucifer 1-2 seasons. The field has to be ploughed at a depth of about 15-20 cm, the debris removed, and then leveled. It is recommended to prepare land well before transplanting and avoid field operations when it is wet. This will help to prevent inadvertent spread of diseases from plant to plant and movement of infested soil within and outside the field.

It is preferable to plant cabbage seedlings on the plots, each having 1m -1,20m of width and a reasonable length with 40 cm width pathway.
