- Watermelon responds very much to irrigation but it can not withstand waterlogged conditions.
- It is generally cultivated as a spring-summer crop in which the frequency of irrigation is very important.
- The crop should be irrigated at 3-5 days intervals.
- Soil moisture stress during pre-flowering, flowering, and fruit development stage drastically reduce yield.
- Irrigation should be stopped during ripening as it adversely affects fruit quality and promotes fruit cracking.

- Watermelons can grow in many kinds of soil but prefer a light, sandy, fertile loam that drains easily.
- Add generous amounts of manure, compost and leaves to your field and work the soil well prior to planting.
- Fields should be prepared thoroughly by plowing and harrowing and removing the different types of plant debris.
- A gentle, south-facing slope is ideal.
- It should also be pulverized and leveled; furrows are made 2 m apart.
- The time of sowing watermelon is from November to March.
- After the November to December sowing time, the plant should be protected from frosting. This is the reason most sowing is done from January to March.
- In the hilly areas, watermelons are sown from March to April.
- Deep plowing so that the eggs of painted bugs are destroyed
- Early sowing is needed to avoid pest attack
- Irrigate the crop for four weeks after sowing to reduce pest attack
- Spray thiamethoxam 25 % WP(evident/Areva) @ 300 gm/acre or
- Spray Acephate 75%SP (remain) or
- Spray Bifenthrin ( klintop/marker) @ 300 ml/acre
- A bug is black in color with red and yellow lines
- Young plants wilt and wither as a result of the attack
- Both the nymph and adult suck the sap of leaves and tender stems resulting in poor growth and pale yellow color of the leaves.
- In a later stage, the insects suck the sap of the pods with the result both quantity and quality of seed are adversely affected.
- Apply FYM before 15 days of transplanting in the main field.
- At the time of transplanting, use Calcium Nitrate @ 10 KG/ acre.
- Twice spray of calcium EDTA @ 150 Gm/acre at the time of appear deficiency symptoms.
- The flowering stage is important in mustard crops.
- In this stage, it is beneficial to increase the number of flowers and give hormones at the time of growth of pods.
- For this, spraying of Homobrassinolide 0.04% @ 100 ml / acre with 19:19:19 @ 1 kg per acre.s
- Increase micronutrient availability to plant from the soil like Mn, Mg, Fe, Mo, B, Zn and Cu in addition to P2O5.
- Encourage faster root growth for water and nutrient uptake.
- PSB produces organic acids like malic, succinic, fumaric, citric, tartaric acid and acetic acid which fasten the P2O5 uptake, maturity and increase yield.
- Increase resistance towards diseases and drought tolerance due to rapid cell development in the plants.
- Reduce 25 – 30% phosphatic fertilizer requirement.
