Brinjal Farming Tips & Varieties in India

Some popular brinjal varieties in India for cultivation are Pusa Purple Long, Arka Shirish, Azad Kranti, Arka Nidhi, and Crypton Kranti.
Use well-drained, organic-rich soil of pH 6.5-7.5; light soils for early yield, clay loam/silt loam for higher yield; prepare the land by plowing, creating beds and adding well-decomposed FYM.

Sowing and planting brinjal in India involves starting seeds indoors, transplanting them to the field after 4-6 weeks, and maintaining a spacing of 60x60 cm.

Brinjal thrives in warm, humid climates and requires at least 6 hours of full sunlight a day, making it suitable for cultivation in various regions of India.
For brinjal cultivation in India, fertilizer dose is determined by soil fertility and organic manure, with recommended NPK of 150-100-50 kg/ha and half N and a full amount of PK at planting, followed by 3 equal split doses of N.
Effective weed control strategies such as hand weeding, mulching, and herbicide application can minimize competition for nutrients, water, and light, thus enhancing brinjal growth and yield.
Implementing integrated pest management techniques, using resistant varieties, and timely application of pesticides can help protect brinjal plants and ensure healthy, high-yield crops.
