As Musli grows naturally in most parts of India, as per practical experience it can grow successfully in the wide range of temperature and rainfall. Sandy loam soil with proper drainage system facilitates its growth.
KRD Musli FarmThe preaparation of Land

The Land is to be required to be prepared in the month of April - May.

* Proper Soil treatment including Deep Ploughing, Tillering is must to give land a better Pulverization and Dryness in the month of March and April.
* At least five trollys of Cow dung manure per Acre should be mixed in the month of April or May.
* Raised beds should be prepared (as per planning of plantation) in the end of Month May.
* The Raised bed distance should be 24 inches and height should be 10-12 inches.
* All the raised Beds should be well irrigated before sowing the planting Material. Raised bed help in growing of tubers of Musli and to facilitate the proper drainage.
* The distance of beds could be increased to 3.5 feets, but it requires irrigation by drip irrigation systems only.


* Two weedsof the crop are required to free it from the weeds which should be controlled manually by labours.
* Any kind of deficiency should be immediately traced and the required element should be supplied.
* Some few especial techniques practiced have to be observed either by training or by frequently visiting.
* The first three months from the sowing date are very important and the field needs most care.

* In the month of October - November the leaves of Musli starts yellowing.
* Subsequently they become dry and fall off and get detached from the tuber/disc.

Harvesting of the Crop

After Maturity stage of the crop means that the crop cycle is complete, hence its tuner should be dug out as per practical experience.

* Digging: This means digging the bunch of safed musli from ground. This process involves around 60-70 men per day to dig one acre land. The complete process should be seen by the labour so as to enable him to get the complete yield safely.
* Drying: Part of the yield dogged out is peeled and then dried to almost 20%. This dried musli is then sent to the market. There should be a clear understanding of this process.

On an average this crop gives a yield of 25 quintals of wet musli per acre. After peeling and drying up nearly 20 percent of dry musli is finally obtained.

KRD Musli Farm's Dr. Dingu is also included in production of seeds of Potato, Onion and Garlic since last 35 years, now he is producing quality planting material of Safed Musli. We also produce Safed Musli with other crops including Amla and Chiku etc. at the same piece of land to take more profit from the same land at a time. This process of cultivation is known as Inter-Cropping.
