The pumpkin seed production

Seeds are sown in rows at the end of April/beginning of May, allowing for repeated mechanical hoeing between rows. Depending on the weather, harvesting takes place from mid-September to mid-October. Immediately after harvesting, the pumpkin seeds are washed and dried. After cleaning, the seeds are ready for bagging and storage.
