Pit digging should be done prior to planting time i.e in April to May.
Pit should should be 90cm wide and 90cm in depth.
These pits should be left open for (30-35) days. Sunlight will kill harmful organisms in pit.
After 1 rainfall-(15-20)kg animal manure, 10Kg Soil, 50gm aldrine, 2kg lime should be mixed and fill the pit.
Plantation Of Litchi
We can plant litchi from August to September. We can also start litchi farming in March also.
We should make holes in centre of pits filled with soil and maure and plantation of litchi should be done.
It is good to do plantation at evening time. After plantation little irrigation should be done.
During initial days of plantation, irrigation should be done on every 2 days. After they attain some height, irrigation can be stopped.
Too much irrigation shoud not be done. Irrigation should be done for (2-3) times after they grow and before they starts fruiting.
Irrigation will helps to reduce cracking problem of litchi .
Use Of fertilizers
After flowering and before fruiting i.e when the litchi is size of mustrad size we should spray 3gm sulphur dissolved in 1litre of water. It acts as insecticides and increases temperature and our fruiting increases.
When the litchi are size of peas we should apply boron in soil. 3Gm borates mixed with 1 litre water should be applied. This will end the problem of fruit dropping and fruit cracking.
