 Developing raised bed low tunnel poly-houses

Raising crops in nurseries during summer for transplanting in winter used to be extremely difficult due to extensive waterlogging. Farmers have provided training to prepare and use poly-houses for growing seedlings. In this practice, first, the farmers prepared a raised seed bed (1 to 1.5 feet above the ground) in the field which was free from waterlogging. A 30 to 45 cm high mound with a sloppy drain is  made around the seed bed to prevent rainwater from entering the seed bed and to allow excess water to drain away easily.This high raised bed is covered by a low tunnel poly-house supported with bamboo sticks. Vegetable seedlings of tomato, cauliflower, brinjal (eggplant), and chilli are prepared in these seed beds until they have become ready for early transplantation.
