Ridge gourd plants
Hi everyone, its another good day. I was passing by the village when I saw this unique way of growing ridged gourd, it may not be unique or new for developed places but seeing it at a developing place like this was a pleasant surprise. The logic behind this is to get more production from a smaller land. This way, plants are safer from insects as well.
I have seen the old age way of growing it where they have to leave a wide area open after each plant for it to have enough space for vegetables once it grows. That obviously resides lesser plants hence less production. Here, this way will provide more production and safety with lesser effort and on lesser land. If the plant bail is all on ground it will need extra protection from insects meaning more chemical sprays. Here, if only they can save the bottom of the plant then there are lesser chances of insects damaging the plant hence lesser chemicals and better quality production.
Not an expert in the field, these are all mu personal views, correct me if I am wrong or mistaken at any point. Thats its for now
