Dos & Don’ts in Promegranate Production


  • Pomegranate plants should be essentially grown in places where lots of sunlight is available
  • The pomegranate does best in well-drained ordinary soil, but also thrives on calcareous or acidic loam as well as rock strewn gravel.
  • The plant should be allowed to retain 4 main stems from the ground level.
  • Since pomegranate plants take 4-5 years to come into good bearing low growing vegetables, pulses or green manure crops can be taken up as intercrops.
  • Early harvesting should be done not allowing fruits to crack.
  • Spray of calcium hydroxide on leaves in fruits initiating after fruit set.
  • Maintain soil moisture and do not allow wide variation in soil moisture depletion.
  • Cultivation of tolerant types.
  • Pomegranate planting is to be done at 4.5 x 3.0 m distance (i.e. 740 trees/ hectare)
  • For growth of trichoderma in the soil, apply the FYM @ 2 kg / tree for every two months.
