How To Plant Darina F1 Hybrid Cucumber Seeds

Below is the step to take while cultivating Darina F1 variety:

Planting

  • The farmland should be plowed, harrowed, and ridged. The soil should be loose enough. All hardpans must be broken.
  • Chicken manure and compost can improve the soil. It can also lead to higher yield. Manure should be spread on the soil.
  • If you are using drip irrigation, there should be an intra-row spacing of between 30 and 40 cm. Two rows can be created on a 1-meter bed.
  • Ensure that your soil pH is within 5.5 – 6.9. The optimal pH is 6.0.
  • 10,000 – 13,333 seeds can be used on one acre of farmland.

Staking

  • Bamboos and ropes can be used to stake the cucumber plants. This enhances aeration. It also prevents fruits spoilage and diseases.
  • Wooden stakes and binding wires can also be used for staking.

Irrigation

  • Use drip irrigation for cucumber seeds planting. Drip irrigation ensures uniform growing and can also increase the yield of crops significantly.

Fertilization

  • During the planting of the seeds, diammonium phosphate fertilizer should be buried beside each seed hole. If this fertilizer is not available, NPK fertilizer can be used.
  • NPK fertilizer, potassium nitrate, calcium nitrate, and urea should be used weekly as directed by your agronomist.
  • High potassium and calcium fertilizer should be used during flowering and fruiting.
  • During harvesting, weekly application of NPK fertilizer, potassium fertilizer, and calcium nitrate should be used.
