Growing features

Before planting, the tubers must be pickled, dried, processed by growth stimulants... Germination in the light or in wet sawdust is recommended.

It is better to plant medium-sized whole roots that are not damaged by pests and not affected by diseases. Non-commodity trifles will not be able to provide a good harvest. Cutting the potatoes is not recommended; it can rot before sprouting.

Before planting, the soil is loosened, plant residues are selected from it, which can become a breeding ground for bacteria and pest larvae. Old humus, wood ash or a small amount of superphosphate are introduced into the soil.

Bushes are placed at a distance of 30-35 cm from each other, row spacings 60-70 cm wide are required. To maintain a normal moisture level, they can be mulch with cut grass... This will eliminate weeds and help control pests.

You can dig in the first tubers already 45 days after germination. In regions with warm long summers, it is possible to plant potatoes twice.

At the same time, tubers collected at the beginning of the growing season are less keeping quality, it is advisable to use them for food immediately after digging up.

To collect the most promising planting material, the most developed and strong bushes are marked in advance with bright ribbons. Plants should not be sick or affected by pests. The dug out tubers are stored separately, non-marketable trifles are discarded.

The harvested potatoes must be thoroughly dried directly in the field or under a shed. Potatoes for sale can be packaged immediately after drying.

Diseases and pests

Early ripening saves tubers from late blight, but this disease can affect plant leaves. In the event of an epidemic, plantings can be sprayed with medicinal preparations.

For prevention, the tubers are pickled, and the soil is spilled with disinfectants before planting. Young bushes will be protected from black legs by the introduction of wood ash.

Young fresh tops attract pests. Most often, plants are affected by Colorado beetles, aphids, and spider mites. Timely weeding and mulching of row spacings with straw or cut grass will help get rid of parasites.

The wireworm (the larvae of the click beetle) causes very great harm to the plantings. Correct crop rotation saves from it. Every 2-3 years the potato planting sites need to be changed.... The vacated areas are sown with oil radish or phacelia.
