Grow spinach in kitchen garden organically
While cultivating spinach, fertilisers have a great role in ensuring its growth. So, the farmers have to pay attention since planting of spinach.
Add 100 gram neem cake and bone manure each while filling grow bags with potting mixture. Also add 1 tablespoon lime to the potting mix before filling the grow bag.
Vermicompost, decayed chicken manure and fish waste also are ideal fertilisers.
For each grow bag, add 20 gram trichoderma in diluted rice gruel and pour it in the flower bed to resist leaf spot disease.
Neem cake diluted in water can be poured at the bottom of the plant in morning or evening to enhance plant growth.
Biogas slurry, Jeevamritham, diluted cow urine and groundnut cake solution can be used as fertiliser after two weeks of planting.
Water the plants only moderately. To avoid pests, remove infected leaves and set up light traps. Neem-based pesticides are good for eliminating pest menace.
