  Preparation of Field

The field should be prepared well to the depth of 15-20 cm. It is cultivated in northern plains. After the rainy season 4-5 ploughings are desirable. Before planting the field should be irrigated and then two ploughings are sufficient. In pots, sandy loam soil should be used for filling up.
