“Follow Our Traditional Cultivation & Have Healthy Lifestyle”

Beetroot, often known as beet, is one of the most nutritious vegetables available. Beetroots have more iron than any other vegetable, including spinach, and are high in fiber and vitamins A and C. Anaemia, indigestion, constipation, gall bladder issues, cancer, heart disease, piles, and renal disorders can all be treated with beetroot.

How to Grow Beetroot:

Since beetroot seeds have a solid exterior coating, it is best to soak them overnight in a glass of water before sowing. This will soften the seeds, allowing them to germinate more easily. If you’re planting the seedlings, gently peel them apart and space them out 5 to 10cm apart to give them enough room to grow.

Climate Requirements:

Beetroots are cool-season vegetable that grows in the fall and winter. This root vegetable develops swiftly and comes in a variety of colors. Beetroots can withstand chilly and near-freezing weather, making them an ideal choice for people who live in cool or hilly areas.

Fertilizer Requirement:

Whether you’re planting beetroots in containers or in the garden, soil preparation is essential. As a result, utilize a medium-rich, well-drained soil that has been loosened with a garden fork wherever possible. To increase drainage, add some compost and manure to the soil and stack it.

Pest:

Leaf spot is the most common disease in beetroot farming, and it causes visible spotting that is easy to notice. The illness thrives in warm, humid environments. Galls or swelling on the roots is caused by root-knot nematodes.

Water Requirement:

Overwatering can cause beetroot to develop more leaves than root, resulting in bolting (flowering not producing a vegetable). Woody roots form as a result of underwatering.

Sunlight:

The crop requires at least four hours of direct sunlight every day and thrives near the base of larger plants such as capsicum and tomatoes, or in an area where leafy greens crops have just been planted.
