Spinach is a leafy herbaceous annual plant grown for its leaves.
Spinach originates from Iran.
Major spinach producing countries are China, United States of America, Japan, Turkey and Indonesia.
Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, West Bengal and Gujarat are leading producing states of spinach in India.
Leaves are the most economically important part of Spinach
Spinach is a quick-maturing, cool-season vegetable crop.
Seed germinate at temperatures of 2˚ to 30˚C, but 7˚ to 24˚C is optimal.
A variety of soils are used for spinach cultivation, but in most regions sandy loam soils are preferred.
Spinach is particularly sensitive to saturated soil conditions.
|Crop Stage||Products||Dosage||Method Of Application||Benefits|
|2-3 weeks after sowing||Geoxol (Liq.)||10 ml per liter of water||Soil Drenching||Improves soil properties and promotes root development|
|3-4 weeks after sowing||PeakMAX||2 ml per liter of water||Foliar Application||Reduces disease pressure Rejuvenates plant growth quickly|
|3-4 weeks after sowing||Nutrin Combo||1 ml per liter of water||Foliar Application||Optimizing nutritional status|
|2 weeks before harvesting||Silixol OSA WP||2 g / ml per liter of water||Foliar Application||Improves quality of leaves , reduces incidence of abiotic stress|
|Deficiency of Iron||Nutrin Fe 12%||650 g / hectare / application, if soil Fe (less than 4.5 ppm),repeat application is recommended based on deficiency. Suitable for foliar sprays for crops grown on all types of soil.||Foliar spray||Corrects Iron deficiency|
|Deficiency of Iron||Nutrin Fe EDDHA 6%||2.5-5.0 kg / hectare / application, if soil Fe (less than 4.5 ppm),repeat application is recommended based on deficiency. Suitable for calcerous soils with pH above 7.5||Soil application||Corrects Iron deficiency|
|Deficiency of Boron||Nutrin Boron 20%||650 g / hectare / application, if soil Fe (less than 25 ppm),repeat application is recommended based on deficiency||Foliar spray||Corrects Boron deficiency|
|After 15-20 days of crop establishment||Mycoxol 4G||500 g/hectare/application, if soil pH (less than or equal to 7.5) and availble P (more than 15 kg/ha) - if fertigation is available||Soil application||Reduces incidence of soil borne diseases, improves availability of phosphorous and other micronutrients|
|After 15-20 days of crop establishment||Mycoxol Granules||10-20 Kg/ha/application, depending upon soil properties - if crop is on flood irrigation||Soil application||Reduces incidence of soil borne diseases, improves availability of phosphorous and other micronutrients|
