Carrots are easy to grow in a garden with deep, loose soil; and as you may have guessed from the name, they are packed with beta carotene. A 1/2 cup serving gives you four times the Recommended Daily Allowance of vitamin A in the form of beta carotene. Growing and harvesting carrots is a great way to take advantage of their nutritional benefits. Carrot Farming plays a major role in the Indian economy as it is a major vegetable crop in India.

Varieties of Carrots in India:

  • Hills: Ooty-1, Early Nantes and New Koroda
  • Plains: India Gold, Pusa Kesar, and Half Long Danvers

Best Soil for Growing Carrots:

Carrot is a cool climate season crop and when grown at 15°C to 20°C will develop good color. The carrot crop needs a deep loose loamy soil. It requires a pH ranging from 6.0 to 7.0 for higher yielding.

Best Season for growing Carrots:

  • Hills: At an elevation above 1500 meters, Carrot can be grown throughout the year under assured irrigation. At elevations between 1000 – 1500 meters, Carrot can be grown in July – February.

Irrigation for growing Carrots:

Water supply should be given once in five days. During the drought period, after giving irrigation in the evening, beds should be covered with wet gunny bags. This prevents excessive water loss during sunny days. Germination of the seeds is also improved.

Weed Control in Carrot Farming:

After cultivation, the first weeding is to be done on the 15th day. Thinning and earthing up should be given on the 30th day.
