Sometime the crop of finger millet turns pale yellow at the time of fruiting. To control it farmers in these parts use roots of asparagus. This is a traditionally followed method. When the farmers observe paleness in the crops, they bring 2 -3 pieces of asparagus roots and plant them which is not more than half feet deep that near the patch of crop where more damage is seen. This controls the spread of paleness to the other parts in the crop. Normally the roots are planted at two or three places in whole field.
