Itis the time to plant cabbage as September is the planting season of the crop. Cabbage prefers cool moist climate. Cabbage requires 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight. Like other crops it requires well drained soil, rich in organic matter and requires a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Fill a grow bag with the potting mixture (to adjust the pH lime can be added to potting mixture if required).
Direct sowing of seeds in grow bag or transplanting of the seedlings can be done after 30 days of germination. Neem cake can be applied to prevent insects. Irrigation can be given as and when required to keep soil moist. Fertilizers can be applied in every two weeks. After head initiation (45 days) the outer leaves can be tied together using a soft twine. Harvesting can be done in 90-105 days. Cabbage is an excellent source of Vitamin Cand glutamine (an amino acid).
