Advisory Services :

Grow Bao paddy var. Panindra, Padmanath, Dal Bao, Basudew in low lying areas. Drainage of  excess  water

Foliar application of urea instead of top dressing is advocated.

Hoeing in between lines for aeration in root zone after flood in case of black gram.

Advancing the sowing season to March- April and direct seeding for early crop establishment and higher plant population.

Basal fertilizer application to tolerate submergence gives some assurance of yield to farmers.

The photo-insensitive varieties bearing submergence to lerance capability are the best choise for flood affected areas.
