How to prepare nursery for cauliflower cultivation?

For cauliflower cultivation, nursery is prepared. First of all plough the field then plain the field properly.

After that make a seed bed then fill the water into it to maintain moisture and then wait till the water dries.

While preparing the beds, special care should be taken that the organic fertilizer should be well mixed in it. Raised bed about 10-15 cm in height is prepared.

At the time of bed preparation, well decomposed farm yard manure 8-10 kg/m² is added to the nursery.

Seeds should be sown in lines. Its advantage is that every seed gets equal amount of air, water and light. For weeding and watering, about 60 cm distance should be kept between two beds.
