Day 1

Please how do you prevent your nursery from damage as a result of heavy rainfall. As you only covered with Palm frond.

Secondly, how do you prevent damage from pests like lizards, rats, grasshoppers, crickets, etc as I cannot see any nets there.

I would really appreciate feedbacks

I do the local tomatoes most times and rainfall has never been an issue this is the same way I do it,I don’t think this will make any difference

Heavy rainfall is known to severely damage nursery when not protected. Which is part of the reason some people do their nursery during rainy season in a place with a transparent covering that allows sunlight in but prevents rainfall from getting in. Or they keep their nursery trays in a place with zinc shed and take it out in the daytime to receive sunlight when the seeds have started growing. If they notice rain about to pour, they quickly take them back into the covered area.

So I asked my question because I saw that your covering is palm frond. And this will not adequately prevent rainfall from causing damage to your nursery. So I wanted to know if there is a technique you are using to prevent rainfall damage, so I could learn from you too.

rain fall can not affect it. However, he needs to cover it with net to avoid disturbance.

I applied calmag to the root some days ago. Is it that it's too much or what?

Try to uproot one plant and check the root for any nematode colonisation. Apply velum prime through drip. Works like magic

What's d a.i in greenland.?
Sry for the late response
Greenland is a bio nematicide. It produces beneficial fungi that consumes the nematodes.
In short, it is a fungi.
Find in the attached picture its a.i

It can only be applied before or during planting

This is the work of nematodes as my oga famerakinloye6 said.
But you can still remedy it, buy velum prime by bayer
One of east west distributors said he would sell 500ml for 25k naira for just an acre. It can be applied anytime

Calmag is not a salty fertilizer, unlike sulphur, potassium, ammonia and urea. So the possibility of calmag affecting it is almost zero

To my limited knowledge, Furadan is usually applied before planting. Ask more
I cant really say anything about wormforce since i have not used. Farmerakinloye6 can enlighten you more on wormforce

calm down!!! I will not encourage you to keep spending much on this project. Harvest this one, treat your soil next time and plant plantinum. Plantinum has resistance to Nematode to some extent.
