Pot trials begin in India

Under the management of Mr Prabune, the field trials are underway at the ARTI field station*. There are 6 replicates of 12 treatments, which include 20, 40, 60 and 80t/ha biochar, vermicompost and cow manure, and a chemical fertiliser.
Thus far, the eggplants (aubergine) have been transplanted into the pots prepared with the different amendments, and this week those seedlings which died will be replaced. The egg plant takes 30-40 days to flower, then a further 60-80 days until harvest.
