But can be cultivated in loose and medium black soil.Climate- crop responses well to tropical and hot climateThe plant prefers annual average rainfall of 600–1000 mm or less, of which 85% is received during July to September. A well-drained fertile sandy-loam to medium black soil, with a pH of 6–8 is best suited for its cultivation with staking support. Shatavar can be grown in open land as well as under shade, but very high moisture levels result in rotting of root.Propagation material : Both seeds and root stumps   can be used for propagation. However, seeds are preferable on account of high production that makes up for low germination percentage in cultivation. Seeds may be collected from March to May when their color changes from red to black.Agro-Technique Raising propagules : Seeds are sown during the April -may in well-prepared and raised nursery beds containing good amount of FYM (farmyard manure). The beds should ideally be 10 m × 1m in size. Seeds are sown in lines 5 cm apart and covered with a mixture of FYM and soil. The beds are lightly watered at regular intervals using a rose water cane. Propagule rate and pre-treatment : About 7 kg of seeds are required for raising seedlings for 1 hectare of crop. To obtain early and higher germination percentage, presoaking in water is required. Higher germination is also achieved by soaking the seeds in cow urine for 24 hours. The germination commences after 20 days of sowing and is completed in 30 days. Planting : Land preparation and fertilizer : The land should be given a deep disc plugging, followed by harrowing and leveling.

Transplanting and optimum spacing : The seedlings are ready for transplanting after 50-60 days of sowing. These are transplanted in field at the onset of monsoon in July. Keeping the plant-to-plant distance at 60 cm. Optimum number of seedlings required per hectare using the recommended spacing is about 150 000.

Plants need staking material, thus poles or shrubs serve for support. Irrigation and Intercropping : The field is irrigated immediately after planting if there are no rains for 2-3 days. Shatavar can be grown in rain-fed condition as well as irrigated. On availability of irrigation water irrigation at the interval of 25-30 days may be given. Frequent weeding is required during its early period of growth. Care should be taken to avoid any damage to growing shoots at the time of weeding. Totally, about 2-3 hand weeding is needed to keep crop free of weeds.
