Proper irrigation of date orchids vital to enhance yield.

LAHORE -- Date growers advised to irrigate the date orchids as during the months of July and August, water and other nutritional needs of the plants get high.

A spokesman for the Punjab Agriculture Department said Sunday that growers must irrigate the date orchids with an interval of 7 to 8 days, keeping in view weather conditions.

Irrigation helps reduce temperature of the land, which not only boosts the growth of fruit but also improves its quality.

Newly planted saplings should be irrigated every second day so that plants remain protected from negative impact of hot weather.
