To ensure healthy plants, prepare the field for nursery and use well decomposed cow dung manure. The nursery bed should be 1.25 to 1.5 meters wide and the length can be adjusted according to convenience. Prepare a nursery area of ​​eight hundred to one thousand square meters for transplanting in one hectare area. Use certified seeds and be sure to treat them before sowing.

Harvest the mature pods of moong and urad and monitor yellow mosaic disease in later sown crops. This disease is a viral cause which is spread in crops by white flies, which suck the sap from the plants. The disease first appears as yellow spots on the leaves. But eventually the leaves and pods turn completely yellow. The plant’s ability to function is severely affected.

To cure the disease, destroy the affected plants immediately. Use a solution of imidachloroprid (17.8 SL at the rate of 0.3 ml per liter of water) to spray healthy plants during clear weather.

At present, there is a need to vaccinate animals to prevent them from throat and lameness. Green fodder should be used more in summer season in animal feed. To prevent the direct flow of hot winds in the animal house, hang gunny bags or khus by wetting them in the main door and window. Due to which coolness remains in the animal house. In the summer season, animals should be given clean water as per requirement or thrice a day. So that the body temperature of the animal can be controlled.

Apart from this, a little salt and flour or jaggery-water should be mixed in water or 50-60 grams of electoral powder should be given daily. To keep the animals stress-free in the summer season, use a mixture of vitamins and mineral salts. Give 30 to 50 grams to large animals, 25 to 30 grams to heifers and 10 to 15 grams to small animals daily.
