General information about seeds
Marvel grass lasts 7 to 8 years once planted. Increases in height from 3 to 4 feet. Yogurt contains up to 12% protein. Cows, buffaloes, horses and goats eat this grass with great relish. This grass does not rot. Since the cane is fine and the leaves are tender, the animals eat it whole. This grass is harvested every month. It can be grown in low water and in any environment. It can also be grown in any land in India.
Land and preparation for planting
Marvel grass can be grown in different soils. These crops are grown in a wide variety of soils, from moderate, sandy soils to black loamy soils. Heavy soils are very useful for this crop and well drained soils are required. For this, by plowing deep, if the amount of lumps is more, it can be broken up, manure can be applied and soft and humus-suitable soil suitable for crop can be prepared. After preparing the soil, steam should be made keeping a width of 2 meters and length according to the slope of the soil. However, if two feet wide and ten meters long shapes are made, it is easy to sow and less area is wasted in the water table. When cultivating before sowing, apply 8 to 10 tons of fully decomposed manure per acre as per availability.
These sticks should be soaked in cold water for 1 hour after transport and should be planted immediately thereafter.
Planting period and method of cultivation
Marvel grass should be planted in early June. However, if you have access to water, you can plant this grass anytime of the year. This grass should be planted on flat ground at a distance of 2 inches between two canes. Simply put, planting should be done in the same way as we plant onion seedlings. When dropping the cane, make sure that it is only 2 inches deep. Land, water, manure and climate can increase or decrease the germination capacity.
Fertilizer and water planning
Before sowing, apply 10 kg of single super phosphate per acre. Irrigate immediately after planting, then at intervals of 3 to 4 days, then irrigate as per soil requirements. Initially you would have applied manure but since you harvest this grass frequently you will need D.A.P, 10.26.26 after each harvest. Granular chemical fertilizers should be used. If you have an abundance of lentil manure, well-rotted cow-buffalo manure will do well.
