What is Thinning
Thinning means removal of some plants or parts of plants to make room for the better growth.
Benefits of Thinning
Thinning helps in allowing proper growth, reducing competition for water and nutrients from nearby plants and allows good air circulation between plants.
When Should Thinning Be Done?
Thinning must be carried out at 20 to 25 days after sowing the seeds.
What Happens If Thinning Is Not Done?
If we don’t thin them, the resulting plants will have problems.
Due to competition, stunted growth, and reduced yields, are just some of your problems.
They can even all die in the crowded conditions.
Diseases, and pest problems are a couple other potential problems.
