The technique of production of Lau

The song that I remember first when I heard Lou’s name was “Flavor Lau, Baniello More Hook.” Also very well-known is a bug, which we often use in words, “Whatever the law, that pumpkin.” Lau and Kadu by no name as it is one of the most popular vegetables in Bangladesh. There are two reasons the ball can go either way. First, the lawa can be cultivated all year round. Second, Lau can be stored for a long time. Besides, not only the fruits add nutrients to us, the vegetables of the Loui are also very tasty and nutritious. Now Bengali Bengali mothers love to cook the curry and vegetables in Lao. Lau is embedded in our diet as well as in the culture.


The love that focuses on Lou is the origin of the Lou but not the subcontinent. The origin of the Louvre in the equatorial and sub-equatorial regions of America. The area extends from the south of the US to the last head of the narrow Peru. In all these areas, the cultivation of the Loui is approximately ten thousand years old. What’s strange, isn’t it? However, at present, in most of the country, mainly in the tropical country, the cultivation of the Loui has expanded.


Lau is known in various parts of Bangladesh. Some of the most popular names are sweet potato, sweet lau, sweet pumpkin, aushi kadu, soil pumpkin, pumpkin, etc. Lou is not a sweet vegetable. Although it is known in the countryside as sweet vegetables. In English, Lou is called Pumpkin, Squash.



The varied lows are basically two types. Namely – bushes and latches. Louie’s roots can penetrate deep enough if not obstructed to the ground. Can reach up to 1.5 meters in field. Although most varieties are located at 5 cm. So you can easily grow luau in your rooftop garden.


The leaves of the lobe are simple, flattened, flattened, and hairy. In some species, the leaf of the leaf is somewhat triangular, the edges of the blade are divided into 3-5 sections. The blade and the thumb are covered in cuticle loam.


According to the fruit varieties of Loui range from 5 grams to 5 kg! What a surprise? No wrong heard Some varieties contain lu but up to 5 (!) Kg .


All mosquito species belong to C. moscheta . The variety is not too high. Their genetic variation is also relatively low. Barry Lau – 1 approved by the Agricultural Research Institute of Bangladesh can be cultivated.


Lau requires a dry and warm climate. High yields require 4-5 ° C temperature and the presence of lots of sunlight throughout the four months. Most of the Loui in Bangladesh are a winter varieties. Very few varieties are also cultivated in the summer.

Land preparation and sowing

The seeds of Lou can be planted at any time of the year in Bangladesh weather. However, for winter crops, the period is from November to January and the kharif season from February to May.

Seeds can be sown in small shady areas around the house to cultivate a small amount of lu. If done in the roof garden can be done near the eagle . However, in this case, the female must be made. In the case of bushes, seeds should be sown at a distance of two meters between two mothers. In case of latched varieties, it should be 3-5 meters. Read more about dragon fruit .

Applying fertilizer

The amount of fertilizer to be applied at the time of preparation of land in each pit

Rice dung is 3 kg

TSP: 1 gram

Mop 1 gm

Boran 2 grams

5 grams of urea


Fill holes with 1/3 of urea and all fertilizers. The remaining 5 parts of urea should be applied in four installments.

Irrigation and drainage

In the dry season, irrigation is required when cultivating luau. After 3 days, irrigation should be done 2-3 times. It is very important to arrange for drainage during the monsoon.


By raising the stems on the bun, the flower quality is good and the yield is high. But because of the added cost of the bouncy, it has to be taken into account financially. When cultivating palm trees, it is best to lay some straw under the fruit while harvesting so that it does not become diseased by contact with the soil.


Artificial pollination can increase the number and yield of fruits. When there are enough bees and other pollinating insects in the vicinity, artificial pollination is usually not required. In the morning for artificial pollination, the male has to take the pollinator in the fruit and rub it gently in the womb of the female flower. Read more about rice quality and cultivation practices .

Insect and Disease Remedies

Flies and jawbone

The insect absorbs the juice of lobi or the leaves of the tree. It weakens the tree. As a result, the growth of the tree decreases the yield. The flies lay eggs on the underside of the insect lure. Within a few days of laying eggs, larvae or larvae become rabbits and begin to eat small portions of the larvae. Read here to find ways to prevent jaundice .

Powdery or downy milieu

Attacks of the disease can be seen as powder-like coating on the leaves of the tree. The disease occurs when there is juice in the ground. The outbreak of this disease is increased due to the lack of water extraction. In Downie Mildieu’s disease, the leaves of the tree turn brown and the leaves crumble.


Any fungicide containing thiovite or sulfur should be used (1.2%).

Louie’s flies

Adult flies have dark yellow spots of brownish brown color. The female flies lay eggs on the shrimp. Eggs penetrate the pod fruit and spoil the bitter portion of the louse. As a result, the infected lava decomposes and falls prematurely.


Poisoning can be prevented by its attack. To suppress this insect by using insecticides, you will need to spray Dipterax-1SP 0.5g or Dipterex-1.5 EC 1.5 ml in liters of water for 3 days at a time.


The local varieties of lava can be eaten both raw and cooked. Although the raw fruit is slightly sweet or unadulterated. Placing the fruit on the tree for profitability will prevent the production of large numbers of fruit. Therefore, fruit should be harvested only after it is suitable for eating. To save the fruit after the ripe harvest must be collected. Along with ripening, the fruit has a yellow or orange color.
