Hello fellow entreprenuers, my interest in crop farming is growing and I'll to plant some cucumbers. When is the best time to start?
Best time is when rain is not too much BC of diseases. in fact dry season is the best if u can irrigate. during periods of high humidity, routinely spray them with systemic fungicides. use at least 2 different systemic fungicides with different mode of action, tank mixing each with a contact fungicide.
@Henlus can u exaplain more on how to mix the fungicides?

It is also important to note that during the dry season, stubborn pests like whiteflies, spider mites, leafhoppers etc can poise a problem. Using overhead irrigation and insecticides like imidacloprid, methomyl, Tihans, buprofezin etc will help keep them at bay.
