well done job boss, please can you shed more light on cucumber pruning and the advantage.
Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by Omonaijani: 11:03pm On Dec 31, 2020
@Farmerakinloye6 please like how many fruits are you expecting from one plant on the average; I'm asking because some growers say they get up to 15 fruits per plant

careful pruning cucumber has many advantage than you can imagine. Unpruned will aid habitation of insect, it will make your pesticide spraying time increase, working through furrow will not be easy, instead for your cucumber to be feeding main stand cheesy it will also be feeding two to three base branch, fruit per stand will increase but not viable for market, during raining season it will encourage sickness e.t.c NOTE understand how to prune before you do it!!!

Get this for your cucumber farm and thank me later.
Do you seek a simple and effective solution for plant nutrition with additional benefits for your soil? Neem Organic Fertilizer is here for you!. It gives 15-25% better yield than most other fertilizers. Moreover, Neem fertilizer controls nematodes and other soil-borne pests, thereby helping roots to absorb nutrients in a regular and optimum manner.
The offered organic fertilizer has N-P-K in ratio 0.39:3.38:1.50
Message me on whatsapp https:///2347015585967 to buy.
10k for bag of fertilizer
6k for bottle of Neem oil

Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by ojbig1: 7:42pm On Jan 04
Please I need suggestions. I did a tomato nursery using coco peat and chicken manure. After 10 day the seedlings started dying mostly the stem shrinks before it die.
I consulted with @farmerakinloye and realized the manure is the culprit.
Am ready to do a fresh nursery using coco peat and npk 15:15:15 dissolved in water.
Do I use this method or use coco peat and plain water.

Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by komoland: 6:28am On Jan 06

I use rich soil as my insecticide.am stopping usage of insecticide tomorrow. How do you wet? If you are wetting from the head to the base,it is wrong! It will encourage disease or virus. Wet only the base. To my knowledge I don't think there is way to eradicate white fly fully in a farm. What is happening to the crop? Upload it

by hand application, light deep hole,few inches from each stand,then cover back after the application. If it is 20:10:10, then you will have to be very careful. Am learner, pls what is fertilizer application has to do with hot weather?
Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by Farmerakinloye6(m): 7:59pm On Jan 06
Major problem now is cucumber growth is faster than me, some ridges are now lock lipsrsealed. Pruning continue. I also spot Downy mildew infection too today

Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by Farmerakinloye6(m): 8:05pm On Jan 06

Which Cultivar is this
Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by komoland: 11:07am On Jan 07
Am a learner too bros, some farmers say npk fertilizer can be applied during the summer months if you are ''careful'' while some say it is not advised to applied it because it can burn the plants causing excess growth and lots of stems and leaves will outgrow the root system and create stress as the roots try to maintain the plant, that is why i'm asking and that is the reason i was not apply npk fertilizer to my plants during summer months because i would not like to take a risk i was only applied basal manure to the soil and foilar liquid fertilizer directly to the leaves, but now i will try npk fertilizer application since you had applied it and everything work well, i knew soil applied fertilizers feed the plant longer than fertilizers applied to the leaves because it lays in reserve in the soil.
Thanks for this lesson, after transplanted the cucumber how many days interval you applied npk fertilizer to the soil?
