Sesame Cultivation
Sesame is a crop that was mainly grown at the wider area of the village Konstantini. Farming started with the plowing of the field. Then the soil was dug with a harrow, shaped and cleared from weeds with a hoe to become leveled and even. Seeding took place during spring (March- April) and was no different from that of other cereals.
The process of hoeing and weeding was repeated every fifteen days. In late June and early July the plant turned yellow and irrigation stopped. When the pot/ shell began to open, harvesting started with the use of secateurs or scythe. The next stages of sesame cultivation included drying the grain as well as winnowing and husking.
