Re: Ampalaya planting

hi .... i have a small farm here in negros and im about to plant ampalaya. only about 100 hills. can anyone pls answer some of my questions:

1. what is the best material to wrap ampalaya? and if you wrapped ampalaya is it ok not to use pesticide anymore?
2. is it ok to use a trellising net in ampalaya as compared to the traditional way like constructing a housing?
3. This is a general question: what is the best fertilizing scheme for vegetables? because as of now im just constantly using t14. maybe you can give me some inputs

hehehe ..... Sorry for the question because i really don't have a lot of knowledge when it comes to agri. i just started my farm and so far the return is quite good. i hope to gain more knowledge so that i can apply it in my farm.

tnx a lot ...................

Re: Ampalaya planting

tingting,
1. use net bags..it is made of a material similar to mosquito net. send me an email and i'l show you some pictures of it.
2. use a combination of g.i. wire and blue twine for the ovehead. use bamboo poles for the posts, I use a kind of bamboo locally known as kalbang.
3. my fertilization program is a little complicated since i practice minimum tillage and semi intensive organic farming. i am in a transition period to becoming a full organic  farm. I do not disturb the soil, after recontituting it with beneficial microbes and enhanced its organic matter. I apply supplemental fertilizer by foliar..

Re: Ampalaya planting

..intersting, i really hadn't considered mosquitero bags..

..ok, net houses against DBM on crucifers, same against Brinjal borer, errr talong borer, yup, ok, but to protect ampalya..

..i live and learn..

..as to fertilising, tingting, each plant has it's own needs, as a rule-of-thumb N = leaves, P= stem and roots, K = fruit so a cabbage needs N, a potato, P, and a talong, K but after that, caulis need boron, onions need sulphur and K, etc etc, you really have to spend time studying..

..me, i use a lot of good goat and horse compost, with a gammai, small, really small NPK at the right time. i'm not looking for pure organic, i'm looking for balanced farming, so i rotate with tambui (cow pea---animal feed ) or other nitrogen fixer, and with something like upland rice, a cereal, to get a good disease break..

..as to timber for posts, not bamboo, it doesn't like the earth/air junction, go for good wood and a permanent structure and between crops give ir a goood pasting with bordeaux mixture..

..oh and remember, every post you rip out needs to be replaced so allow an area for timber cultivation..

..farm as if you will live forever, live as if you will die tomorrow..

Re: Ampalaya planting

thank you guys for the suggestions ...... it is really a big help

i have another question. i am planning to connect to our local water system in my farm.  but i am quiet hesitant because some are saying that watering your vegetables with chorinated water is not good and will damaged the plants.  Do you have any opinion regarding this?

tnx again ...............

Re: Ampalaya planting

from what part of negros are you? i have a 6,000 sq.m. veggie farm in Bajumpandan, Dumaguete City. I plant tomatoes, eggplant, okra and ampalaya. as for ampalaya I plan to replant 1,900 plants this october coz i still have tomatoes under the ampalaya trellis. as for your question, better use a trellis net for better support of the plants when they bear fruits. Also i dont wrap the ruits anymore coz a use a pheromone trap for the fruitflies .I use the "fruitfly fighter spray"

Mga kabayan ask ko lang kung sino or saan ako puwedeng magtanong tungkol sa ampalaya planting. Kasi may 5500 sqm akong agri-land sa Laguna at plano ko na taniman ng ampalaya.
1. Ano po ba ang Variety ng ampalaya ang laging tinatanim?
2. Magkano po kaya ang magagastos ko na puhunan kung patataniman ko ang 5500 sqm na land ko?
3. Ilang days po ba bago mag harvest ang ampalaya?
4. Sabi po nag magtatanim sa akin ay kailangan ko daw ng 50 sacks of "ipot ng manok", just for a starter...totoo po ba eto?
Thanks in advance sa maitutulong ninyo sa akin. Mabuhay!

Re: Ampalaya planting

is there any season for planting ampalaya?
yung tinanim ko ng November hindi maganda ang labas ng bunga nya ngayon.
maliit pa lang may damage na? or is it just because of fruit fly or some other bugs?

mga sirs,
ako rin po pahingi ng complete planting guide for ampalaya at sitaw. my email address: edramirez231@yahoo.com. actually i just started to be involved in agri business and i asked a cousin (traditional farmer) to plant ampalaya in my small farm in Pangasinan. We had our third harvest last week ang pinagtataka ko lang ay palaging siyang nagspray ng insecticide, almosy weekly ata. gannon ba talaga yon? or may effect ba yong flower inducing sa katabing mango orchard.Ipag-umanhin niyo po dahil zero knowledge po ako sa field na ito and hoping to be farmer someday when i retire from my job.

Re: Ampalaya planting

Sirs, pwede po ba malaman kung ano-ano ang mabisang fertilzers sa Ampalaya saka kung papano po tio gamitin, at saan pwedeng makakuha.

Nagsimula po kasi ako magpatanim ng ampalaya last Nov.'08, dito sa Laguna. Ngayon naka 2x na po kami na harvest 47kg and 150kg. Mejo marami po ang nakabaluktot na bunga, and since ma-ulan po sa amin, may mga nagkaka biyak din dahil daw sa ulan.

My partner asked me if I could get 2 kinds of Plant Growth Regulators, para daw po pang pa berde ng dahon at maganda daw po ang bunga. But unfortunately, the distributor does not carry those anymore. Instead, they have bio-stimulants.

Pwede ko po po ba gamitin yun mga gamot na iyon at this stage ng ampalaya namin?

Marami po salamat, God Bless.

Re: Ampalaya planting

I see that you guys have good argument, it all boils down to the attitude problems of the farm workers, i have experienced dealing with the ones who are "hard headed" , na ang gusto ay magkapera lang kaagad; Like mag work as laborer na per day ang kita, and to think na malawak ang lupain para pwedeng taniman ng gulay at mga low maintenance na veggies which could give them extra income. Im talking from experience kasi even if i have already given them the seeds and fertilizer they dont want to work it out as eagerly as susuhulan ko sila for other work. I'm kinda thinking like, " ano ba, shall i still pay labor for your own business?" Sila na nga ang tinutulungan para kumita, eh ayaw pang kumilos, at yung mga anak nila na malalaki na ang katawan, hindi rin nila mapakilos,parang nag antay bibigyan ng suhol, i feel like a milking cow kung minsan eh, heheheh!!!!
