How to produce hot pepper, tomato, and eggplant; dry season and off season crop

Usually, smart farmers obtain information in books and agriculture magazine to start their project or farming activities, they believed that the stories they can obtain from those reading materials will help and guide them to have better harvest, if they can't duplicate what they have read from success stories related by the author. The real fact is, the author will just relate the information he can possibly obtain or what is related by the successful farmer in a very short period of time, and sometimes not all techniques used by the farmer will be related.
I have tried reading books written by different authors, and have found out that the procedures they have written doesn't work. I have also tried subscribing magazine, but some procedures that they have been shared are hard to follow or is not suited to your place. Their benefits are inspiring and motivating us to become successful farmer.

So much about that, I am here to make you better, if not the best farmer in town.

Land Preparation

  • Start with a weed-free and well-pulverized soil by harrowing and rotavating the field 2-3 times.
  • Make a field layout using stakes and strings. Take into accounts the drainage and irrigation direction.
Bed Preparation during rainy season, it is not required during dry season.

It is recommended that during rainy season tomato, pepper and eggplant should be planted on raised beds with or without plastic mulch. Plastic mulch can protect the raise bed from heavy rainfall. But as you continue farming you'll learn the advantage and disadvantage of using it.
