Cultural Practices in Oil Crop Production

Factors that are observed in raising these crops;

  1. Market. It is futile to raise any crop if there is no market for such a product. This statement is true in oil crop production.
  2. Transportation facility. Proximity to good roads and better transportation facilities greatly affect the production and marketing of farm products. Good transportation facility can cause reduction of the production cost and an increase of the market profit.
  3. Climate and Altitude. Adaptation has been proven in oil crop production. However, it is wise to select varieties of oil crops that will yield more under the prevailing conditions of the geographical region. 
  4. Topography or contour of the land. Level land with good drainage is suitable for oil crop production. Gently sloping land, however, is preferable to provide good drainage especially during the rainy season.
  5. Water supply. All kinds of commercial oil crops need abundant supply of water especially during dry season. During the growth and development stage, these plants needs higher soil moisture thus adequate water supply is very important.

Spread the harvest heads in a single layer on dry ground with their faces turn skyward. The heads are sufficiently dried when the seeds can be easily shattered.

Sesame. The crop can be harvested when the leaves of the plants turn yellowish. Using a scythe or lingkaw, cut the stalks and tie them to small bundles. Arrange the bundles upright to dry for three days or more depending on the weather condition. These bundles are ready for threshing when the seeds shatter easily.
