My tender okra plants were looking stunted.I dint hesitate to dissect the bumps I found on the stem and I was disheartened seeing borer pupae.Yell.Finally my hubby has agreed on setting up a green house for me.I need to know if

1.I have to start from square one,uprooting existing plants or if I can shift apparently normal looking plants into the green house.

2.Is there an organic way to control borers?

Thanks in advance for the help!Cool

Hai,Green,(1) Soak 1kg of neem cake to 2 liter of water for 3 days.Then filter the concentrate &make up the solution as 100ml( con) to900ml of water+10 ml of soap oil to 1 liter of water.(2) Keep cows urine in mud pots for30 days&make them to ferment ,spray as 10% solution it also act as good growth regulator.(3)Apply ginger garlic chili extract emulsion. Also remove the infected plants.
