Land Preparation

  1. To conserve moisture, the soil is cultivated with an animal-drawn/tracter-drawn blade harrow (bakhar) attached to a heavy wooden log.

  2. This operation helps in weed control and seed- bed compaction.

  3. In light soils, frequent shallow cultivation with a country plow is done late in the evening. Such a practice conserves moisture and helps in weed control.
