Wheat Crop Management


Pest Pest Description Image
disease   Plant diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms such as fungi, bacteria, viruses, and nematodes. Disease occurs when one or more of these pathogens infects a susceptible variety under the environmental conditions that are favorable for its development and alleviating the damage that they cause.

This module helps you to identify wheat related disease and suggests you necessary measure and treatment.

Insect   Entomology is an independent scientific discipline which has its roots in biology. It is the study of insects, involving their biology and control in relation to their environment and to man. Some entomologists are involved in reducing harmful species of insects that destroy food, housing, plants and clothing, and cause discomfort and disease to humans, livestock and pets
Nematode   Nematodes are the most numerous multicellular animals on earth. A handful of soil will contain thousands of the microscopic worms, many of them parasites of insects, plants or animals. Free-living species are abundant, including nematodes that feed on bacteria, fungi, and other nematodes, yet the vast majority of species encountered are poorly understood biologically. There are nearly 20,000 described species classified in the phylum Nemata .
Weed   Weeds emerge with the emerging crop seedlings and if not controlled in the early stages of crop growth these may cause reduction in yield varying from 10 to 40 per cent depending upon the intensity and kind of weeds present in an area. Wheat field is generally infested from both dicot and monocot weeds. The moajor dicot weeds are: Chenopodium album (bathua), Fumaria parviflora (gajri), Cirsium arvense (kateli), Anagallis arvensis (Krishna neel), Melilotus alba and Melilotus indica (senji), Bicia sativa (ankri), Lathyrus spp. (chatri marri) etc. Monocot weeds include: Phalaris minor, Avena fatua (wild oat), Polypogon monspliensis, Cyperus rotundus (motha) and Cynodon dactylon (doob).
