Soil Requirements

Watermelon Kaolack Seeds can be grown on a wide range of soil types although sandy soils are preferred. The highest yields will generally be produced on well-drained sandy-loam soils. Heavy clay soils, soils with obstructed drainage, or very shallow soils should be avoided. Soil pH should be about 5.8-6.2 (H2O). It is usually recommended to lime soil with pH values below 5.5 (H2O).

Soil Preparation

The soil must be thoroughly and deeply cultivated to obtain a good root system. This allows the optimal use of moisture and helps to prevent soil-borne diseases. The roots develop at a depth of 30-40cm and the soil structure at that level must be optimal. Soils must be free draining to below 1.2m.

Plant Population And Spacing

A general spacing of between 4,000 to 8,000 plants per hectare is recommended.

Seedling Production

The seed of triploid watermelons is notoriously sensitive to very specific conditions during germination, as the tiny embryo is contained in a relatively large, hard seed coat. Temperature and moisture control is crucial to success, and too much moisture during germination can kill the seed.

Transplanting Seedlings

Seedlings must be transplanted and watered as soon as possible after they have been obtained from the nursery. Planting trays should be kept cool and moist in the shade until used. When transplanting, roots should not be damaged by the application of unnecessary pressure around the root module. Soil should be watered into contact with the roots rather than pressed in.

Fertilization

Watermelon is reasonably sensitive to salt, displaying a 50% yield reduction in the range of EC 4-6 (mhos/cm at 25 C). Consult Farmsquare or a fertilizer or soil specialist on other remedies needed in terms of a soil sample result.

Pests/Diseases

They include; Aphids, Cucumber Beetles. Squash Vine Borer Moths and Fusarium Wilt. Although some of these diseases can be treated early through close monitory of the farm with agrochemicals recommended for watermelon production.
