Dear All,

Happy New Year to all of you. I am a farm enthusiast with no education or experience in farming :)

Intend to grow Capsicum in our farm land in Pushkar, Rajasthan. Could of questions if I can get some help:

 - Does Capsicum only grow in a polyhouse (I am assuming this is a term used to explain a set up where in Green house is created to control the temparatue) in India ?

- Do you know if we can grow Capsicum in Rajasthan ? If yes, where do I start from to get the basic knowledge on the same?

many thanks
Deepak

HEllo deepak

If they can grow in Israel, we surely can do much better in Rajasthan, India.
Polyhouse is not a necessity in some regions but it surely is required for your project in Rajasthan because the days are very hot their.

research and consult the farmers nearby and get to know the variety of crop they are cultivating (grains, vegetables, flowers etc) and why ?


provide us with few details about your site and weather conditions, soil etc.


Thank you

Aman

thanks Aman for reverting.

I shall collect the local know from the farmers.  We have total of 50 acres of farmland in Pushkar. On around 30 acres, we have grown Amla trees. On balance 20 acres, we are contemplating on what to do from commercial production stand point. If anyone knows about any nodal agency to reach out to near Ajmer / Pushkar, please let us know. Also, suggest what could be the possible plantations that we look at.

For our annual Amla crop, currently we give it on Contract to buyers. We were thinking of going a step further to process the same & have final products like Candy, murabba etc - the current crop output is around 125 tonnes / years . Any suggestions, views, ideas ? Again, who do we reach out to if we decide to move forward in this direction?

many thanks
Deepak

Hey Aman,
sorry missed out on the pictures you had posted the second time. the one with the dry leaves. that was scorching. i think i told you during the first pictures that the sprays were heavy.

so dont worry about them. its quiet normal. i am sure the problem must be gone by now.
keep your eyes on the new leaves. and post some pictures.

hows the support work going along? i couldnt find the manufacturers for the strings.
hope you have managed something based on the samples.

Hey Pradeep,

lovely to know that you thinking of fusing different products and innovations into farming.

the exhaust fan are lovely, which work by themselves on the principle of pressure change. these work lovely for setups which have no puncture (or a little inlet) where as out structures have huge openings, and i doubt if the suction would be effective in such designs.
the fans might do wonders if the design is completely packed (fan pad structure)

as a normal scientific principle, exhaust systems will NOT be effective if there are openings/punchures close to them. the only openings should be in a total opposite side and the end.

thats about it. secondly the side walls. they are slant to make the design more aerodynamic, so it can withstand higher wind speeds as compared to straight walls.

woah people !
one important update!

the main reason for the ground low cost of the poly tunnel is NOT cause of cheap material (price wise)
there is no place where one can get material at that price.

the MAIN reason for the low costs is DUTY DRAW BACK that i am claiming.

i am making a vendor detail file and will upload soon.

Phew!!!!
I was worried that things are not going as you expected In your project when you were off the forum for a few days.Nice to hear you had a good break..much deserved I suppose.Here in Uk life is quite mundane.Work home children.waiting for the summer to come swi can travel a bit in Europe.I really envy guys in India who can keep thier jobs and also indulge in thier farming interests.
Good to see you back on the forum though.

Dude its been long that we haven't heard from you, today i saw your msg here and i could see a smile on my face.  True Story  :) :)

I am posting latest pictures of the crop, i guess it requires pinching right ? Toping method.
what do you suggest ? and how it is done ?

Hello Viks and everyone

i read and followed that for every plant 4 threads are required.

I am little confused with the tying method though, all the polyester wire get curled together then what is the use of maintaining four for each ? why don't we go for a single thread.
i might be wrong, but i really don't see the point.

could anyone share a Video of their support system, specially the tying method you use and reasons.
my plants are in coming up to this stage.

And VIKS
yep i got the thread from a vendor, the sample that you sent did the job.

thanks man.
please guide on the above issue.


thank you

hey Aman,

DONT JUST READ AND FOLLOW :p

its a individuals way of working. the strings i had sent have like 1 TPI (Twist per inch) so they dont curl when cut in short lengths and ties. are you using string which have a lot of twists ?
curling problem will always be there when the TPI is more, and/or when the filament is not heat set.

4 per plants is my personal choice. 1 is for the first support, next 2-3 are for the shoots i maintain. initially i maintain 4 shoots, which later are reduced to 2. so i need a minimum of 4 strings to maintain proper density and avoid congestion. and Aman, when the plants are like 8 feet tall and more, it becomes difficult to maintain the shoot on a single string. there are shoots which develop in between. so we need to have a proper space for air movement, sun light exposure, proper spraying of pesticides etc.
single thread would make the whole plant gather in one single spot.

its again an individuals choice and method aman. if you find it better with a single string, you can do that. but remember that the plants will become monsters even before you know it.

video for the support system, thats going to be a pain. but give me some time. will be starting the support for the indra site in a days time or so.

Vivek
