The process of crop cultivation is one that requires a lot of hard work, knowledge about the crop in question, and patience.When considering crop cultivation tips, it is important to look for tips that are specific to the particular crop in question due to the fact that different plants have peculiar characteristics, growth patterns, specific pests and diseases that set them apart from other plants. Some general tips do apply to crop cultivation that can serve as a guide for the process, including preparing the area where the crop will be planted, planting the crop in the appropriate manner, monitoring the progress of the crop, and other practices like disease and pest management.

The first step toward proper crop cultivation is to select the type of crop to plant, something that is best done after analyzing the characteristics of the area where the crop will be planted. This includes an analysis of the type of weather in juxtaposition with the type crops that grow best in that climate and an analysis of the type of soil that is most prevalent in the proposed location for the crop plantation. Other factors are also included like the availability of resources necessary to support the chosen crop in terms of labor. After this determination has been made, the area for the plantation of the crop would have to be prepared for it by clearing the debris and other unwanted objects, including weeds. The area would also have to be tilled in order to loosen the soil, something that can be accomplished using specific equipment like tractors, cultivators and plows.

After preparing the soil, the next step in the crop cultivation process would be to plant the crop in the proper manner, which depends on the type of material being planted as seeds and plant cuttings are planted differently. Also, the seeds of different plants can be planted to specific depths and require specific spacing. At this stage, the decision would have been made regarding the application of pesticide based on the analysis of the crop requirements. Some pesticides are designed to be applied to the prepared site before the planting of the crop, while others may be applied to the site after the crop has been planted, but prior to the germination of the crop. Still other types of pesticides may be applied to the crop at various stages following the germination, with the purpose for the application of such pesticides geared toward protecting the crop from different types of pests.
