About 2000 chilly has been transplanted and can be divided into two plots. One plot is using drip tape irrigation water system, while another one is using straight dripper injected directly to the soil. Comparing with two system, we discover that using injector dripper direct to the soil is much better compared with using drip tape. 300 of chilly using this method and the rest of 1700 using drip tape.
For your information, we are using 4 mm micro tube and 3.2 mm dripper size that allow water flow smoothly through the tubing and goes to the soil. In the past experience, the 3 mm micro-tube gave us much problem such as blockage and need to service and maintain the tubing and piping all the time. More time consume when using 3 mm micro tube.
I'm very busy with new farm and other external stuffs and unable to update in this blog. For your information, our activity now is planting the Kulai Chilly from variaty F1 Hybrid 568. This variety is most famous among dealers and farmers. Our chilly now is about 1 month age after transplant to the bed. We plant the chilly by using conventional method with fully automated support irrigation system.
Beside that, we plant the short long bean (cross-bred yard bean and cow pea) and also planting the haricot/french bean. About 300 seeds has been soil into the beds in the last 3 weeks ago.
