Preparation for another 3000 stand loading... I spray glyphosate and 2-4d to weed, allow it to work for one week then start renewal of the ridges, I think the ridges should be complete by tomorrow or Saturday. I will not be using manure for this particular project, I wish but can not wait for the manure to cure! Am planting Greengo 2900 + JORAD 100 stand. I think I will also introduce another fertilizer apart from npk. Missing video from previous project will be upload to my IG and YouTube channel. Am going to market tomorrow to know current price, it was 8.5k -7k last week.

Please, what's your disposition towards organic solid fertilizer?

our people here don't want to kiss the reality.. cucumber glut is here! Through out my staying in market yesterday I only saw five Cucumber buyers, and there were many cucumber in the market. Agent is still insisting on 7-5k last. I told my friend that has cucumber to sell it own and comort eye! And he replied " but no buyers now" funny thing...no Greengo seed in the market again..and by next week cucumber will be like sand in the market.

Actually, there's no difference except that the bagged organic solid fertilizers have already been composted and contain both plant and animal wastes.

best way to keep weed off is weeding manually like 2-4 times in Cucumber and tomato farm, but if it is cassava or maize you will be using something like guard force,2-4d and StarForce.

It was sold today 4.5-4k. I heard one of the buyers saying cucumber is many but price is yet to come down. I will say glut is knocking! And I did nursery yesterday...so am putting my price bench mark@3.5. only God knows!
