The most widespread berry culture, whichgrown on private plots, is a strawberry. Juicy and sweet, it is very rich in vitamins and essential amino acids, because in addition to the traditional use of strawberries for food, it is also widely used for cosmetic purposes. However, like any other cultural plant, it has its own characteristics of cultivation and care, knowing that you can achieve the maximum harvest from each bush. Proper strawberry farming is guaranteed to yield a high yield, because, fortunately for all gardeners, this berry is not very choosy to the growing conditions.
So, first of all, it is necessary to tell about that,what kinds of strawberries exist for today. First of all, it is a traditional strawberry (gives one crop in late spring - early summer) and repair (yields two crops per season). In addition, today this berry culture includes a completely new variety of it - determinant varieties, which include Brighton, Elizabeth and Selva. Its main feature is that the agrotechnics of strawberries of such varieties allows you to harvest over a long period of time. Some varieties, such as the Moscow delicacy, generally allows you to harvest even on unbroken rosettes, which allows you to shoot the maximum possible number of berries per season.
All strawberry varieties are very demandingnutrients in the soil; therefore, every autumn, potash and phosphate fertilizers should be introduced for an annual stable yield. In addition, a very good result is fertilizer with humus, as well as mulching with sawdust or straw. In the latter case, the plant receives additional protection from severe overheating, and also retains moisture well throughout the day. This is the proper agrotechnics of strawberries, since the plant is also reliably protected from sudden temperature changes during the day and night.
When planting, carefully selectplanting material, because this is also the secret of the successful development of your plantation. The fact is that a strong seedling, which has several leaves, and a well developed root system in the shortest possible time can not only take root, but also develop successfully. In this case, the seedling will be pleased with the first harvest for the next year.
It is also important to take into account that agrotechnical cultivationstrawberry includes frequent watering, because it directly affects the ability of berry bushes to successfully bear fruit, and also to resist well the possible diseases. The best result is provided by drip irrigation, in which moisture flows directly into the root system of the strawberry, thus significantly saving water resources. This is very important for the industrial cultivation of strawberries, where proper irrigation affects the final crop.
When preparing a future plantation, it is important togo to the site of planting strawberries, because the agrotechnics of strawberries gives a very good result, if during the whole daylight it is illuminated by the sun. The process of photosynthesis in this case is as intense as possible, as a result of which the ovaries on the bushes will be the maximum number.
Summarizing all of the above, it follows thatto emphasize that properly planted strawberries, whose agricultural equipment provides for timely watering and the addition of liquid fertilizers, allows to grow a good crop. The main thing to remember is that, in addition to all that has been said, you should pay close attention to the structure of the soil, as well as its type, since this also determines the amount of fertilizers that must be added to the soil each year.</ p>>
