CryHi everybody,

  I have a small place of 3 x 25 size. I had planted White pumpkin, Okra,Knowlkol,and brinjal seeds. Each time when they they sprouted some worm destroyes them. How to control it at the initial stage. Is it necessary to sprout the vegetables seperately and then replant it agian?

I had tried sparying neem oil+ soap moxture. but no help.

It is better you grow them in small pots and then transplant them when they are big enough.  Check if they are caterpillars?  Covering them with mosquito net till they are large enough is one way. Have a close watch and handpick if there are larvae.
