It is to be noted that gourd cultivation (lauki ki kheti) is done thrice a year. Its crop is grown in Zayed, Kharif and Rabi seasons. Farmers sow Jeth in mid-January, Kharif from mid-June to first July and Rabi in September-end and first October. It is a pumpkin crop.

Irfan’s Farming method:

Successful farmer Irfan Chaudhary cultivates gourd with advanced technology. He uses the seeds of the JK Company for its sowing, and then takes the help of the tractor in the ploughing of the field. Apart from this, he uses manure made from cow dung, uses urea and DAP. He buys this manure from the village shop itself.

Successful farmer, Irfan says that he cultivates gourd in one acre field, which costs about Rs 50000. He sells the crop produce in the vegetable markets of Delhi and Panipat where their produce is sold from Rs 30 to 40 per kg.
