Irrigating Fenugreek

  • Do regular watering to keep the soil slightly moist.

  • Maintain constant moisture level in the soil

  • Care not to over-water the fenugreek plant and avoid waterlogged soil.

  • During hot / dry seasons, the plants should be irrigated twice a day.

  • Plants will die with the soil becomes dry for long time.

Fertilize Methi:

  • Fenugreek does not require a lot of fertilizer.

  • At the time of planting, you can mix manure or compost or time-based fertilizer in the soil, and that will keep it growing for a few weeks.

  • Also, feed the plant with balanced liquid fertilizer, every other week for more robust growth.

  • Fish Emulsion spray can also be done for Fenugreek
  • Side dress the surface of the soil with compost to better yield
