Top 5 Phalsa Farming Tips in India

In India, Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bihar, Karnataka, and West Bengal cultivate Phalsa. However, Farmers prefer loamy soil on the city outskirts.
For Phalsa farming, start by clearing the land of debris and weeds. Plough the soil to a fine tilth, ensuring good drainage. Amend soil with organic matter and apply necessary fertilizers.
Phalsa thrives in sub-tropical climates, favouring dry, hot conditions during fruiting. It becomes dormant in winter, shedding leaves, while June's high temperatures aid fruit ripening.
In January, after pruning, apply 5kg of FYM (Farmyard Manure) to each bush. For bushes, apply 50 to 100 grams of urea in two parts, during March and April, based on their age.
Phalsa can handle drought after harvest but needs irrigation every 20 days from April to June for high yield. No watering needed in the rainy season or dormancy.
Phalsa harvesting occurs when the fruits are ripe, typically in late spring to early summer. It involves carefully picking the ripe fruits from the bushes.
