For the cultivation of melons, one bag of DAP and one bag of Potash is broadcasted at the time of sowing. After germination, when 3 to 4 leaves emerges out apply half bag of Urea after hoeing. After flowering apply half bag of urea again. This will increase the production. The crops cultivated on the beds should be irrigated after sowing in such a way that the water should remain under the seed sowing level.
Second water is required after a week so that the germination is completed. After that, weekly irrigation is required and this duration can be changed according to the need. The crops that are grown on smooth land requires 2 to 3 irrigations. When 3 leaves are germinated, then pruning is done. Leaving the healthy plant behind remove all other plants so that high quality fruit is obtained. For better production 2 to 3 times hoeing should be done to remove the weeds.
