  • 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.
