Video: Proper Nutrition Of Horticultural And Horticultural Crops Is A Serious Matter
There is a large number of fertilizers with a specific direction of application, such as "For cabbage", "For potatoes", "For flowers", etc., and they really play an important role in plant growth, contain the right set of components, but are they sufficient for the entire growing season and obtaining a quality crop?
As a rule, fertilizers are applied in the spring for digging, during planting. These are the so-called main fertilizers. With their help, we lay the base in the soil, which will provide the plant with nutrition for the whole summer - this is the guarantee of the future harvest.
But the weather conditions on the territory of our vast country in different climatic zones are different. And, as they say, year after year does not happen! Last year was drought, this year was cold, etc. It may turn out that the fertilizers applied since spring will not have the desired effect and will not give the efficiency that we expected from them. From critical weather anomalies, from the chemical action of protective agents, plants experience stress, bioprocesses slow down, the root system does not take from the soil everything that the plant needs for full development - growth, flowering, ripening, fruiting.
What can and should we do in such a situation? Taunt the plant to life!
This is done through foliar feeding. It is best to use complex mineral water-soluble fertilizers, growth stimulants.
What happens to the plant? We give the batteries directly to the sheet. Their assimilation through the leaf surface is possible. All the main chemical reactions in a plant take place in the leaf. What we need! A plant without a weakly working suction-root and conducting systems receives the missing mineral components for its vital activity and resumes chemical reactions. Gradually connects to the process, the conducting and root system begins to work in full force. With the help of foliar feeding, the plant "wakes up" much faster than it naturally "comes out" of stress and begins to actively vegetate.
In agriculture, on thousands and thousands of hectares, such a tool for relieving stress, adjusting nutrition and growth processes has been used for a long time and actively. He works!
We conclude that the fertilization that we apply when planting in spring is not always sufficient!
Foliar top dressing may not be necessary if weather and soil conditions are favorable. Although not everything is clear here either. For example, the fact that foliar dressing of potatoes two to three weeks before harvesting with potash fertilizers (monopotassium phosphate, Aquarin for fruiting or Fruit and berry) gives an increase in yield, increases the quality and keeping quality of root crops. This effect can be observed not only on potatoes, but also on other fruit and vegetable crops.
Many years of experience in the use of various types of fertilizers in agriculture prompted us to adapt the developed nutrition systems from the professional field for amateur vegetable growing and horticulture. Just as the largest agricultural enterprises grow vegetables and fruits, gardeners can also grow on their small plots. For example, apple trees will bear fruit every summer, and not like those of their neighbors - they "rest" after a year. We will also start picking cucumbers earlier and longer. And potatoes and other vegetables will be perfectly stored in our cellars.
Power systems are simple and straightforward - this is a set of existing fertilizers and recommendations for their use for growing any crops on all types of soils. All the fertilizers that are required for the "Power System" are already in stores. Using these instructions, you yourself can assemble it for the desired crop.
The “food system” is based on a simple scheme borrowed from professionals who grow agricultural products in large volumes on huge areas.
Three main stages:
- seed processing,
- the main application of fertilizers to the soil during planting,
- corrective feeding during the growing season of the plant.
Each element of the Nutrition System is important and contributes to the future harvest!
Let's consider each of them in more detail
1. Processing of seed material
A balanced complex of highly effective microelements readily available for plants - Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Ca, as well as B, Mo. Due to these elements, the yield increases, they contribute to the complete and balanced absorption of nutrients from the soil, increase resistance to diseases, drought, cold, accelerate and improve flowering, increase the number of ovaries, and reduce the level of nitrates in vegetables and fruits.
In practice, it is difficult for gardeners to add trace elements separately. Introducing them in the composition of "AQUAMIX" greatly simplifies this process, and since they are contained in physiologically verified proportions, there is no risk of excessive introduction.
Micronutrient fertilizer "AQUAMIX" is used for the treatment of seeds and other planting material of any crops, as well as for the prevention and elimination of chlorosis caused by a deficiency of microelements.
The method of application is very simple. It is necessary to soak the seeds, tubers or other planting material before planting with a 0.1% solution (1 g per 1 l of water, a package of 5 g per 5 l of water) of the Aquamix micronutrient fertilizer for 8-12 hours (the remaining solution can be used to treat seeds of other crops).
If the seeds have already been prepared by the manufacturer, treated with plant protection products (PPP) and / or growth stimulants, then soaking in Aquamix must be excluded.
2. The main application of fertilizers to the soil during planting
ORGANOMINERAL FERTILIZER (OMU) is a complex granular fertilizer of prolonged action, produced on the basis of lowland peat, which includes humic compounds, macro- and microelements. Chlorine free!
In the process of obtaining WMD, mineral nutrients are fixed in an organic granule. The more mobile nitrogen and potassium are not washed out of the granule by irrigation water as it happens with mineral fertilizers, and phosphorus does not form insoluble compounds in the soil solution. An organomineral granule is a micro-pantry for plants.
Due to this, the utilization rate of nutrients from WMD is 1.5 times higher than that of mineral fertilizers, where a maximum of 25-30% of nutrients are absorbed, while the percentage of assimilation in WMD is 80-90%.
The optimal ratio of nutrients protects against excessive accumulation of nitrates in food; increases frost resistance and disease resistance of plants; increases the content of humus in the soil, looseness and its permeability; provides not only an increase in yield, but also improves the nutritional value of products. The organomineral shell protects plants from an excessive increase in the salt concentration of the soil solution in the development zone of the plant root system. These properties make this fertilizer an effective starter fertilizer for all crops.
WMD begins to work in early spring, when plants need growth stimulation, continues in summer - during the active growing season and in autumn, strengthening plants for the winter thanks to the prolonged action of fertilizer.
WMD are fertilizers for the main application to the soil during digging or locally in the hole / planting hole. WMD are intended for nutritious nutrition of field, horticultural, vegetable garden and ornamental crops, as well as for growing seedlings. The use of the fertilizer provides a high yield with excellent taste, the absence of nitrate nitrogen in the fruits.
3. Corrective feeding during the growing season of the plant
AQUARIN fertilizer is ideal for corrective fertilizing during the growing season - it is a unique water-soluble fertilizer with an optimal complex of macro- and microelements for plant nutrition through watering and foliar feeding. Trace elements in its composition are contained in a form readily available to plants in the form of complex organic compounds - chelates. It is this form of microelements that is quickly absorbed by plants, without fixing in the soil, which makes it possible to reduce the dose of their introduction and provides a quick visible effect. Top dressing is carried out with a fertilizer solution either early in the morning or in the evening, or in cloudy (not rainy) weather. It is recommended to use AQUARIN both independently and in conjunction with plant protection products.
Everything that we recommend to you, dear gardeners and gardeners, has been tried and tested in science and practice on thousands of hectares of area, has received high international recognition and assessment of the most demanding specialists!
We wish you big, tasty and healthy harvests!
