Farming as an occupation is becoming too expensive for the poor.

Hello guys.

I'm a first time Cucumber farmer, and many of my Cucumbers are coming out strangely.

What can be the cause of the attached issued?

Is there also anything I can still do to correct this, or it's gone?
Too much heat, inadequate water/moisture stress, insect attacks, nutrient deficiency, etc.

The foundation of those crops is poor, they don't look redeemable.

insect, lack of water and enough nutrients. Your first pic ripe (sun), second pic insect cause the rotten and third is cause by lack of water and nutrients.

Please experts in the house. How often can one cucumber with manure tea? I already bought my venturi and have access to wet poultry liter.

My plant population is 3,000 stands. Also, can I use only manure tea though out the growth circle?

Thanks for the response boss. Its going to be my first experience with using venturi and maƱure tea. The manure I intend to fertigate with is rabbit manure. And I have already loaded the manure into.a drum and mixed with water..

Does this mean after seiving out the manure tea I still havw to.mix it at the said ration of 4: 1 or I can juat send the directly throught the venturi?

I use fresh chicken manure, I put inside sack, about 50kg, tightly tied and soak in water (200L) inside drum. After two weeks, I remove and dispose the sack, then strain the liquid and get my manure tea. I don't use raw, i dilute with water, 1 part manure tea and 4 part water

Okay, thanks alot. I noticed using the bag will be easier as mine method of pouring the whole manure seems to make the work alot stressful when seivng out the tea. I will try out this your method.

But, do you use venturi fertilizer injector or you just spray the solution , or pass it directly through drip after the 4:1 mixture.
Re: My Cucumber Farm Dairy by komoland: 6:01pm On Dec 01, 2023
Kindly transplant your cucumber nursery from 5 to 6 days to prevent nursary overgrowth which may result in cutting of young seedling during or after transplanting.
