Stevia – Zero Calorie Sugar substitute cultivation good practives

Steiva is a natural sugar substitute and we make lots of mistake during cultivation. Here are some advices on Stevia cultivation.

  • If you trim the crop every 40 days in the first year, the leaf generated from this will be useless for commercial purposes. Because it takes 90-100 days for the sweet molecules to synthesise in the leaf.
  • If you do a premature cutting in 40 days. The sweet molecules will be less very less in quantity.
  • Pruning is recommended (i.e. trimming the top of all plants) because that will stimulate the growth of more tillers
  • Giving good biomass yield
  • Over pruning though is again counterproductive because it will stunt the growth of the plant in height
  • So the best approach is to prune the crop within 30 days of plantation and then again on day 45.
  • After that leave the crop to grow on its own.
  • First harvest should be taken 4.5-6 months from plantation date.
  • And after that depending upon the climatic factors of the region you are growing it in. You may get 3-4 harvests a year.
  • On an average expect 3 harvests a year after the first harvest which might take upto 6 months.
