In three weeks the seedlings will be ready for transplanting. Harrow your land until fine tilth then make some holes of one feet square in your land, uproot your seedlings and wait for the evening time to plant them hence avoiding wilting. While transplanting, apply at least ten grams of D.A.P fertilizers to each piece of seedling. Wait for two weeks and spray them with fungicides mixed with folliar fertilizers, after three weeks first weeding stage is carried out to eradicate weeds that might compete for fertilizers, then second weeding after one and half to two moths.
