What are Pre-planting Operations?

Pre-planting Operations are all the activities carried out on the farm before planting. These operations include the following:

1. Selection of Site:

The type of crop production will determine the site to be selected. Most crops require well-drained fertile soil to do well. A field with a fairly level topography is suitable for plant growth.

The availability of water, accessibility to roads and markets, and nearness to home, office, etc., are also important factors. Fertile loamy soil is the most ideal type of soil in most cases.
