Beans plant

Hi GG,

I have grown some beans plants in red soil. I used to put compost every alternate week and got very few beans harvested. There were few beans flowers which were yet to grow, but the leaves slowly became pale yellow and the plants look dull. There were few other plants which didnt give any yield and dint grow well.  Being a new veggie gardener, I am not sure what is wrong with the plants and wat kind of fertilizers to put. I have now planted some water melon seeds and i dont want to have any surprises with it. Can you please guide me on what kind of organic fertilisers to use, and what needs to be done to get better yield. Thanks in advance.

   Red mud tends to become very compact in pots. Add a little sand/cocopeat to loosen it (cocopeat is lighter). Also premix the compost and mud before adding it to pots. A little bit of inorganic fertilzers (urea,DAP etc) also helps a lot.

Robin is right.

Regarding organic fertilizers, you can use bone meal, wood ash, oil cakes. They must be mixed during planting since they release nutrients slowly.
