Last year Cotton was the main crop grown and the varietiesused were Kaveri-ATM, moneymaker. Although the conditions were not thatsuitable for cotton crop but still I could get a yield of 10 to 12-q/acre.Other farmers obtained less yield due to local seed varieties used by them.This year also I will be Kaveri-ATM, moneymaker using and I am planning to havedistance of 6.000ft x 1. 25ft.In the month of June end sowing of seeds iscompleted on 4 acres of land.
